Mine is a 25 gallon horizontal.

I assume you are referring to a horizontal tank .....

Tanks are made to only accept 80% of their total capacity (that feature is built in to the valve), you may have a defective valve assembly.

'07 Tours have 31 gal propane tanks per the sales brochure. Call it 24-1/2 gals at the 80% mark, give or take.

When you say you are "out" is this a case of the monitor light showing "E"mpty or actually running out (i.e. no propane when turning on the stove etc?) Wondering if it could be a gauge problem if that's what you are going by.

No books is easily fixed, thanks to Winnebago. Go to their web site and you can download the original sales brochure with all the specs, your Operators manual, electrical and plumbing diagrams, paint codes, and other goodies. Freightliner's web site has some chassis manuals and most of your appliances have their manuals at the appropriate vendor web sites.

Your propane tank capacity is stamped into a data plate on the side of the tank. Among other data on the plate you will see the letters W.C. WC stands for water capacity and it is expressed in gallons. The propane capacity is 80% of the water capacity. Hope this helps you figure out what happened to the propane.
