New Propane Regulator

Can anyone provide some tips on changing the regulator? I'd like to change to a auto-changeover regulator. Should the threads be coated with anything?

Use the yellow Teflon tape of a paste specifically for gas service. The water service paste and white Teflon tapes are not suitable. Use the sealant ONLY on the pipe thread connections and not on the tunig flare connections. Use only flare type fitting on the tubing.
