Propane Regulator / auto Switch valve

Can anybody tell me what brand of Auto Switch Propane Regulator that Forest River uses on their Wildwood trailers. I have scoured the assembly and can't find any brand name what-so-ever? Is this an item that the dealer installed and not Forest River? The reason is that I want to get a set of instructions for the thing .. just t have them.. Thank you

The one our Sierra had in it simply said made in china.

The switchover indicator broke off in the cold weather. So I ended up upgrading to a made in mexico Marshall regulator lol. Had to make a new mounting bracket for it too, but it was worth it. Cost was about 60 bucks for the regulator.

The regulator/changeover valve on my Rockwood is an ACR-6 according to the literature that came w/ the trailer.

Instructions???
I've had 3 trailers with 3 different switchover valves.

Basic operation-- with both LP tanks off move lever to point
to the tank you want to be the "main" tank.
This is the tank you want to empty first.

Slowly open the valve on the "main" tank.
See the little window turn green on the regulator.
That means there is pressure in the "main" tank.
Open the "reserve tank.
Go camping.

When the "main" tank runs out the window turns red
telling you the "main" is MT and the reserve is in use.

You should be able to remove the MT tank while the
other is in operation but I once had a trailer that would
leak very slightly out the hose if I removed the MT tank
and did not replace it.
My advice is to swap out the MT tank with another rather
than leaving the hose just dangle with no tank on it.

Good instructions, KyDan. But I always switch the valve to the new tank, just as a precaution before unhooking the empty tank.
