Propane Selector Valve

Need some advise since this is my 1st TT.

I have a 2014 Surveyor Sport:

? When I walked by the Propane Tanks or the front of the TT, I smelled Propane. Checked for leaks using soap and water, no leaks.

So could this just be one of the tanks venting via the selector valve?
It has been hot here in SoCal this last week.

Also the selector valve has a glass window, so I'm assuming at this point that a Clear glass means no tanks are selected? A Red color meaning that the tank is empty and a green color that the tanks still has propane, Are my assumptions correct ?

In any case Thank You for your replies from a New Be..............

Your assumptions are correct on the color but I don't recall ever seeing it clear. You should not be smelling propane.

I had a leak around the crimp behind the part that attaches to the tank. Same thing, just happened to smell propane when walking by. This was on a very new trailer. Had to replace the short hose from the "splitter" to the tank.
