Poor propane flow in warm weather

I have an A122-BH AFrame. I've been having some issues with my propane this summer. When the weather is warm, and the tanks are in sunlight, I get really bad gas flow. Barely enough to keep one stove burner lit and not enough to get the water heater running (it will poof to light and then go back out, only to try again a couple minutes later).

However, when the sun goes down gas flow seems to pick up again, enough to run everything. Now that the cooler weather is starting to show up, everything seems back to normal.

My internet research seems to find references to poor flow in COLD weather, but nothing about the opposite. I called my dealer and they pretty much shrugged and just said to bring it in.

Before I start tearing things apart and replacing things like the regulator or tanks, I figured I'd ask here to see if people had any ideas.

It must be too early before morning coffee, but I'm not sure what you mean by "internal separation" and what I should be looking at.
