From the pictures, I am a little confused. The left picture shows a green button which I thought indicates a source of propane from the left tank.I haven't had this reg on too long, so I'm not sure how the color changes. Does the indicator rotate from green to red when the tank is empty and the other side of the reg changes to green. Then the directional indicator is rotated to the other full tank where the indicator now shows green at that side. Is my thinking correct?

Regards, Super

The bright green dot is pointing to the tank that propane is being drawn from. When the tank goes empty the dot changes from green to red letting you know the tank is empty and starts using propane from the other tank. You then manually turn the dial to the other tank where the red dot should turn green letting you know you are now using propane from that tank. Remove first tank for refilling and the process starts over. With this type of valve, you leave both tanks open.

I had issues understanding mine! I ran out of propane fully TWICE before I got a tipoff on how to read and understand.

See if this help:
