I have experienced similar sounds from the area of the propane regulator. Through the assistance of an RV service manager, I learned that the pig tail propane hoses have a check valve built into the hose coupler. The valves, when defective "churp" like a bird as they "flutter" back and forth! I would replace the hose on the 2nd tank. IF that does not correct the noise, replace the regulator. Hose #1, not involved in the noise issue, would not be defective. Amazon sells an excellent 12", etc. "Camco" brand propane hose. It is rated as heavy duty.
