I think some (most) of the dual tank valves have an automatic feature where it will automatically switch to the "other" tank when one has been emptied. That's a handy thing until it's 3:00AM and 20 deg outside and you realize that the second tank just emptied. I manually control which tank I'm using and when I empty one I will flip the selector to the other tank (and open its valve)....... and hope I remember that I have an empty tank.

When you have to switch the tank over at 3:00 am and it's dark and cold out usually helps me remember to fill the empty tank the next day. When the fridge light blinks in the afternoon and I decide I'll refill the empty tank tomorrow or the day after is when I forget to refill. The 2 X 30 lb pound takes take too long to empty for me to remember how much I have used them and when they were last filled.

I leave the valve on one tank closed so that I know when one tank goes empty. The green/red indicator is not visible unless I take the fiberglass cover off of my trailer. I would also be interested to hear how the regulator switch works as well.

Like a light switch. It is left or right. There is no middle.

Middle Setting

The dealer told us the middle setting is to draw on both tanks, but never to use it because you'll never know when your tanks are out until they're dry. Switching to one or the other allows you to know you're on the secondary tank and that you need to refill.

Part of my morning routine is to take a peek at the regulator to see if it has changed color. When it does, getting the old tank refilled becomes a priority!! I leave both valves on. Makes no sense to run out of propane if you monitor your tanks regularly.
