I do not have the autochangeover either, I just leave one tank turned off so I know I always have a full tank.

My Auto changeover indicates when it switches tanks. All you have to do is peak in the access door ever once and a while and have a look if the indicater is red or not. I just check it every time I pack up at a camp site.

OffTheGround, with your access door I assume you have a 5er. I have to pull off the tank cover and it fits real tight and close to the front of the trailer. It actually rubbs the front cap if I am not careful.

When we run out I switch tanks and immediately remove the empty tank. That way I don't forget to fill it. If we were weekend campers I would probabbly do it differently.

Clutch, I have a X213. Two 20lb tanks mounted out in the open on the tough of the trailer. They are covered with a white hard plastic shroud with a small access door on the top for turning the tanks on and off. I'm just a nice weather weekender so we don't use to much propane, just enough to cook and maybe a few tanks of hot water here and there. Once I notice that the indicator changes, that tanks gets pulled out and fill right away. Like everyone elses concern, I don't want to be left completely empty.

Ok, I just havn't seen a cover with an access door. That would be nice to have.

My last TT had the cover with an access door on top, makes it easy to turn on/off the valves. Here`s one similar
