So I kegged my last two batches for the first time, and I was using a 4-way manifold to distribute it to the kegs off my 20#tank.

I dd not know it at the time, but my ipa was drained to about 2 beers and I forgot to keep checking the checking the gas psi, and about a week later it was off the gauge high, which I reduced but just forever had a hard time equalizing the second keg again. My gauge doesn't seem to be registering correctly any and I'm wondering it is because it was left at too high a pressure, have I broken it?

Also do I need to just constantly monitor the pressure as as the kegs are used to a kid over carvinating the beer?

Any help is appreciated

It sounds like your diaphragm is shot. You can send it back to the manufacturer for repair. I own 2 so if one fails I have a backup.
