Trouble again on LP tank not feeding

Replaced one tank line to regulator on left side of unit 31.5 RLDS seemed to fix feed problem bad from factory. Now it is doing it again. Will not feed to switchable regulator. Has anyone had the same problem? Is is a line problem or the in between regulator the red one on the left side or the switch to the other tanks? The lines are about $18.00 at Camper World. I can not believe that the line went bad so soon. Thanks for the help. When I take the tank and move it to the right side manually all is well just having trouble to get it to feed from the left hand side.

I'm still trying to understand why an additional small regulator is installed on one tank, but not the other. It shouldn't be because of the length of the propane line because that small distance isn't going to make any difference in pressure.

Yes thanks for the response the left is the one away from the switchable regulator. I am going to try another pig tale to the left tank tomorrow. The one on it now was purchased from Camping world one year ago. I can not believe that it only would last one year.

Is the red regulator still on the line. if you removed it it will lockout the tank or if the pressure is set to high on it, it will also lockout the tank.I don't think it's the lines giving you trouble.

Try s l o w l y opening the left tank valve to charge the supply line from the left tank to the regulator. Maybe "sluging" the left tank.( causing the internal tank safety devise to think the line is broken and shutting off gas output from the left tank.

Hi All
Yes the red regulator is still in the system. Replaced line today and it works as it should. I seem to remember someone talking about opening the tank slowly. If it does cause the valve to react is there a simple way to clear it out to open again? Thanks for all the response.
