Propane regulator


I am brand new to the site, brand new to Airstreams, and brand new to trailer camping. I just bought a 1969 Globetrotter and I love it. The old man who had it before maintained it immaculately, but it does have an incredibly old propane regulator. I was thinking of taking it out this weekend but I'd like to replace that first just for safety.

Is there a particular regulator anyone prefers or works better? I have two short tanks, and all the appliances are still the 1969 versions.

Thoughts? I'd greatly appreciate it.

Is there a procedure or a way to keep the color change function working properly. I recently ran thru a bottle of LP, I knew that it had changed to next tank, but I had to tap the regulator several times to get the green to come back when I turned selector to fuller tank while getting empty tank refilled
