LP tank change

Does the 2015 RW have the LP automatic changeover switch or do you have to manually close the empty tank and then open the full tank and manually turn the changeover switch?

It automatically switches tanks when one runs empty provided both tanks are opened, but it does not switch the changeover valve, that's done manually.

It draws from the tank your lever is pointing to first, then the other. If you want to change out the tank that is empty, flip the lever to your full one and remove the empty and go fill it. No interruption in service.

Sooooo... you point the lever to each tank but what does the down position represent?

Draws from both simultaneously, if I remember correctly. That way will run you out of l.p. with no reserve.

Does the red indicator pop up when the first tank empties or does it pop up when both tanks are empty leaving you without any propane?

The red pops up when the tank you are pointing to is empty.

Thanks. I probably had that feature on my Big Country but didn't know how it worked. Sure better than getting up at 3am to switch tanks.

I have had mine set so it will switch automatically but over the course of a month I forgot about it and ran out on both bottles. I prefer to run off one and then manually switch knowing I have a backup, even if it is a 3 am swap
