Propane Tanks

I am looking to remove one tank and take it to work so I can refill it during lunch.

Any special steps I have to take to remove the valve, etc since it connects to 2 tanks? I am guessing switch the arrow to the other tank I am not removing and all valves are shut off ?

Just un screw line and done .
Nothing special otherwise .
They have a stop valve that doesn't allow propane out when line is removed

While this is true, the change out procedure is as you said. Switch to the opposite tank and shut off the valve of the tank you are removing.

Then unscrew the pigtail nut on the tank.
