We have recently moved into a Redwood 36FB. We have dual, 30 lb propane tanks; both filled when we took possession. As the weather turns colder and we used more propane and ran out this morning (burrr).
I'd been watching the indicator (black vs red) and it seemed to turn over night.
The switch has an arrow on it. Turn it to the left and it uses the left propane tank. Turn it to the right, etc.
This morning, found I was out on tank 1, but the dealer didn't turn on the valve on propane tank 2. I turned it on, turned the switch so it would use the full tank and not only did the furnace not work, the indicator showed the full tank as being empty. Any suggestions?
When I had the first tank refilled the guy (much more experienced with RV's than I) said I should turn the switch down (not right or left) and the system will automaticlaly use one tank, then without manual operation, switch to the other tank. Is that right? Soemone else told me by turning the switch down, it used both tanks and that they'd run out simultaneously; resulting in more down time to refill both tanks. Help?
