Propane leak

I have 2 propane tanks and the left one makes a clicking sound when in use, and we've noticed a strong propane odor also when it's being used.

I switched to the right tank which works fine with no clicking sound or odor. When I tried to disconnect the hose from the left tank, propane was still coming out of the hose, even though everything was switched over to the right tank.

The hose on the left tank is brand new. We have both tanks shut off and that fixed the leaking problem from the left tank hose.

Any suggestions on what might be wrong?

It sounds like maybe the hose is either defective or installed incorrectly, The clicking sound could be the freeflow valve shutting the flow off. Make sure that the hose connection at the tank is snug , if it is, I would suggest having it checked by a qualified tech before using, and keep both tanks turned off.

Well what's wrong is you have a leak hehehe
Find the leak, or have someone find it. If it's the hose, replace BOTH hoses since they are the same age, and you might go ahead and replace the auto change over regulator.
