I will have to look at mine tomorrow. It's in storage. I do remember that it was hard to see and I had to stick my head into the compartment to see it. I'm not sure it is the same as yours. I will let you know tomorrow.

In this picture your black plastic handle is covering it up.

johnboytoo,

Your switchover is different than the one on our coach with the indicator window.

Ours looks like this...

Move the lever with the arrow on it to point to the bottle you are using under the lever is a small plastic window which you can now see because the lever is no longer covering it on mine it will appear empty if you have propane but when the bottle it is pointing to is empty it will be red. By leaving the lever down in the middle you are drawing from both bottles and the red flag will only show when both bottles are empty. Hope this helps

Thanks !
That's the problem - I can't see the window because of the mounting ---
It's mounted within 2 inches of the 40 lb bottle on the right SIDE of the enclosure...
can't get enough of an angle to see it...
had to do gyrations with 10 or so pics just to be able to get the 1 or 2 good pics above

Tmo, I will close both bottles to see if I can tell if the sight glass turns red.......

ontheroad,
mine actually has the little white cover like yours,
but the cover has been trimmed so you can take it off when the dial is pointed straight down- I took your picture and painted the 'slot' in red below:

You should be able to tell if a bottle is empty by leaving it open and turning the valve to the side for that bottle and see if you see green or red through the siteglass (red would indicate that bottle is empty)

Have to say for me the Power Cord reel option and having LED lights inside and outside the coach for all lights would be two fine additions to the Redwood line up of features. Now a days LED's just make common sense for replacement and battery draw.

I installed them on my last one - may have to on this one.

One of my biggest request would be to put a low profile AC on the front of the coach. This would likely give us back a couple inches of clearance and some additional peace of mind. Mine might be a warranty item soon, considering asking if they'll replace it with the Mach 8 low profile unit if I pay the difference...

I had a Dometic Penguin low profile on a prior rig, and it was junk.
