RE: Automatic Changeover Regulator not changing over

Thanks to those who chimed in on this thread. The comments are appreciated. I did some more research and discovered that some pigtails, specifically those with the green knobs and sold by Camco, have a device located at the green knob that prevents a sudden large flow of gas in case of a broken gas line. LINK. It looks like mine is said Camco pigtail. I ordered a new pigtail and will replace the driver-side one. I'll post the results after I do this. All ACME Nuts (Red/Green/Black----color just indicates Flow Ratings)) on pigtail have an 'Excess Flow Device' ...trips if flow downstream increases (leak) But can also trip if the cylinder OPD valve is Opened too fast....close OPD/Wait 39 seconds/Open SLOWLY Did you check that 30# Regulator on cross over line??? I've done the slow opening on the tanks dozens of times while troubleshooting the problem. As far as the 30# Regulator, are you talking about the device located in the bay of the driver-side tank bay? I just noticed it last night. If replacing the pigtail doesn't solve the problem, I'll look at that next.

RE: Automatic Changeover Regulator not changing over

The lever should point toward the cylinder you want to empty first. Yes no matter which way it is pointing the propane should flow until both are empty. Don't rule out getting new pigtails. They have a check valve that can get jammed up. Thanks. I just ordered a new pigtail.

RE: Automatic Changeover Regulator not changing over

You are moving the lever to point to the other tank right? Otherwise yes I would replace the dual input regulator. I recommend the Cavagna brand. I'm confused. The lever need not be moved for the auto feature to work, right?

RE: Automatic Changeover Regulator not changing over

My first guess is the valve thinks there is a leak in the line. There has to be some back pressure to the valve for it to stay open. Thanks. Do you know if the safety device that prevents the tank from flowing is located on the tank or in the pigtail?

Automatic Changeover Regulator not changing over

My auto-changeover regulator will not switch sources once the first tank goes empty. The curbside tank will feed until empty, but the driver's side will not flow. I am forced to either lug the empty tank to the LP station or swap the full, driver's side tank over to the bay for the curbside. OK check out my thinking on this: I can rule out the high-flow safety tank valve (on both tanks) as the culprit because either tank works fine in the curbside bay. True or false? If true, then would that would leave the regulator the most likely suspect? Thanks for any help given.

RE: Water heater, anode rod, electrolysis, and teflon tape

The most convenient way found to change/monitor the anode rod was to join the threaded plug for the drain hole and the sacrificial anode in to a combo item. That's why the rod happens to be in close proximity to the threaded drain hole plug. The anode could have been located anywhere in the tank and still have worked well. There is an electrical aspect to sacrificial anode that has nothing to do with threaded plugs. Because the anode is a different metal than the tank,there is a weak electric current in the water which is part of the process.
