Turn on the opposite side tank & it will auto switch if the primary tank runs empty (nice if you are running the heater in cold weather & don't want to get up in the middle of the night to switch tanks). Indicator will remain red until you manually move the switch to point at the other tank & then the indicator will go back green (unless it's empty as well). You're then good to go to refill the empty tank.

I'd definitely say you have an empty tank.

Safe travels!
I find this very handy. Easy to tell if a tank is low or empty so I know what I need to do:

Propane Level Gauge

I never liked those red and green indicators.

Unfortunately Murphy’s Law states: RV propane bottles only run dry between 2 AM and 3 AM.

Lol, Murphy's Law is right. I wondered why they always seem to run out at that time of day... Crazy
