Proper Propane Pressure?

    My 92 Georgie Boy has a propane pressure gauge built in to the kitchen cabinet. It reads out in oz/sq in (osi). When I turn on the propane, the gauge reads 10.5 osi and stays there as long as I have the gas on. On the dial, there is an area in Green that is between 5 and 6 osi, which I think is the manufacturer's recommended pressure. Is my pressure set too high? All appliances seem to work correctly and the stove isn't acting like a flamethrower. The gauge is also rock steady for many many hours after turning the gas off, so I think I'm leak free.

    Propane is usally measured in inches-water column pressure. Appliances in an RV are designed to operate at a steady 11 inches-water column pressure. Not sure if this helps as your propane pressure gage measures osi.

    I have a conversion program that tells me that 11 inches of water is equivalent to 6.96 ounces per square inch. I just adjusted my pressure down to 7 osi, plus or minus .1, should be close enough. Thanks. :)
