Washington, D.C.-In cooperation with the U.S.
Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, and Transport Canada, Marshall Gas Controls, a division of S.H Leggitt
Company of San Marcos, Texas, is recalling about 25,000 Marshall model 250 Automatic
Changeover LP gas regulators. Some of these regulators may leak propane gas, which is
highly flammable and could ignite.
The model 250 is an automatic changeover regulator used to regulate liquid petroleum gas
pressure in conjuction with two LP-gas cylinders in certain residential, marine and
recreational vehicle applications (i.e., travel trailers, campers and fifth-wheel units).
Marshall manufactured the regulators from January 1994 to July 1994 and distributed them
through recreational vehicle manufacturers, parts distributors, and retail liquid
petroleum gas suppliers.
Warning: Liquid petroleum is highly flammable. Consumers should not attempt to disconnect
Consumers who own regulators with date codes "4 94" through "30 94" in
two small, raised circles on the back of the unit should call Marshall Gas Controls at
(800) 396-1322 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CDT for the service center in their area that
will inspect, and if necessary, will replace the regulator at no charge.
