Question No Pressure

I have a dual 30lb. tank system.
No matter which tank I switch to I get no pressure in camper.
There is a plastic bubble on switch valve under a rubber cap that is red inside.
Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Make sure both tanks are full and then turn on very slowly.

Just tried that,didn't work.If I loosen a hose on either tank I hear pressure,but with hoses on cannot hear anuthing.Also with 1 tank unhooked & the other on don't get any pressure out of unhooked one.

You should not get gas out of the one unhooked because there is a valve in the connector.

If you look you will see a small "nipple".

If you look at the end of the black knob that screws on to the tank there is a valve.

Are both tanks full?
Try turning off both bottles.. Then open a valve on your stove to bleed everything out of the system, preferably with a window cracked open.. After a few minutes, when no more gas is heard or smelt, close the valve on the stove and make sure no others are turned on.. Then go out and open one of your propane tanks.. See if that helps..

There have been more than a few post about the regulators going south.

Replacement is the fix.
