I think Lou meant not to open the fridge door too much......that will take the take temperature up quickly. I load ours in a couple of shifts. The temperature will go up loading, I then let it come back down before the next batch. But if everything is already cold (as it should be), it ain't a gonna matter all that much.
If you have the automatic regulator switch over valve, turn the pointer to 1 tank (your last used tank, regardless of level), turn on both tanks slowly (so the over fill protection valve doesn't slam shut), and also open the valves all of the way.
When the supply tank goes empty, the system will automatically switch to the 2nd tank. Move the switch to the 2nd tank, remove the 1st tank, fill, replace, and the process starts all over again. If you move the switch to the 2nd tank, you don't even have to shut down the system to fill the 1st tank.
