    Things I didn't know I could do 260RD!

    First time out in our new 260RD. Learning new things all the time.
    1. We didn't know there is a coat rack in the upper pantry by the fridge. Took out the upper shelf. Perfect for coats. Plus added push on stick up lights inside each compartment.
    2. We have the 3 recliner theater seats. We didn't know they actually layed all the way back with a little more effort. What a big difference in comfort watching TV.
    3. Didn't know the entry door stayed open with magnets. I knew it was resistant and stayed where you put it but wind will close it. Not now!
    4. Propane tanks have have a gage on the left side.
    5. Figured out what the hole in the side by the entry door was for the tool to lower the spare tire.

    Apparently we didn't get a real good walk thru!

    On the left regulator there are indicators that change from green to red. No actual gages. It should show red when the primary tank is empty. Then move the regulator lever to the other tank as it now becomes the primary.

    Yeah,
    The auto switch over is pretty common on two tank units. It can happen without your knowledge if you don't check it often enough and can lead to 2 empty tanks...I like to know when the primary is empty in a more positive manner.
    Congrats on your 260RD, hope you enjoy it.

    I only have one tank on at a time to avoid getting caught with 2 empty tanks. I just keep an eye on the level to know when it's getting close.

    ^ Same here except when one gets empty, I switch over and start thinking about filling up the empty one...
