powertank not working

anybody else experiencing theirs not working properly? i had the regulator acting up about 3 months after i bought it and they sent me a new one. this was about 7 months ago. the new one worked fine till today. i just re-filled it yesterday. it was working fine just before i got it filled. it filled all my tires but shut down when i was airing another guys. i tried everything short of tearing the regulator apart which i won't do. i will call powertank and ask for another. what gives? anybody else with probs? the system is awesome when it works.

Maybe you got the model with the "square" guage on it.[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Or was it ..... you were supposed to get the one with the square guage.[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
Actually I never heard of too many problems other than the freezing up of the regulator.

no dave
un-fortunately it is the old, out-of-date, antique, obsolite ROUND guage. i knew better but i figured the air was going in ROUND tires and that was the way to go.

they do freeze up when using but the regulator is advertised to prevent "freeze clogging". i will talk to steve at powertank. i remember seeing an ad in a mag recently that said something about a new and improved regulator- i want one of those. i just figured someone else out there has had the same probs.
