[When you use all the propane in that tank, the regulator automatically switches over to the other tank and the indicator turns red. /QUOTE]

This may sound like a dumb post, as I'm sure all of us know this, but you have to have the valve on BOTH tanks in the open position in order for the automatic changeover to take place. I'd be willing to bet that somewhere out there in RV Land there is one person, out of the millions that read this forum, that wasn't aware of that little bit of knowledge. And I'd like to think I helped that one person.
I'm on my first NEW TT and I am not aware of this. I do not recall being told this at time of purchase. I just got back from the week-end and left the TT at the dealer because I could not get gas from one tank. I had to change places with the tanks to get gas flow. Dealer says the gas line is bad. I will question the dealer when I pick up the TT. I used the TT last Nov. and needed heat but could not get gas from the same tank. Both tanks were full. Didn't give it any thought at the time. I guess the line was bad then. Will see what dealer has to say about all this.

Still learning

mine looks like this also. the long selection lever points to the source bottle. when in middle draws from both. mine has a level full window, black full and red empty, dont know how well it works. i think weighing is probably best indicator for liquified gases like propane to tell the tank level. we dont really have scales on the tanks though. i normally use one to empty and changover, not the best idea since entraps air , but better than running out of gas totally if i draw from both bottles. If this works different than i have described please let me know a better way to know when to fill one bottle before running out so i know when to switch/ thanks

If the knob selector is facing the trailer, you may not be able to see red/green indicator.

If the knob selector is pointed to the left tank and the tank has propane in it, it shows green on the indicator. If the tank is empty, it shows red. The regulator will automatically swap tanks when the tank is empty. When you view the red/green indicator and it is red, then you can manually move knob to other tank. At this point you can refill left tank.

Above is what I know. What follows is what I think.

Close both tank valves. Let it set for 15 minutes, or open tank connection to release propane, or light stove to use all propane in lines.
At this point, the knob is pointing to left tank and indicator should be red. (Indicating tank is empty because valve is closed.)
Slowly open left tank valve only. Indicator should go from red to green. If it does not turn green then you may have a problem. Try closing and opening valve slowly again. If you open valve to fast, the regulator thinks you have a leak and turns off gas flow. If the tank has just been filled, it may be overfilled.

If it works ok, close both valves again then go to right tank and do the same thing.
