Has anyone else done the same with one or two spares?
Yes, I carry spares depending on when and where we are headed. I usually have at least one (#30) for use with the portable propane fire pit we carry. The second tank comes along in the winter months when we know the squirrel cage heater will be getting a workout. It seems the propane dealers are always in the most inaccessible places or closed when the tanks are empty and freezing temperatures are predicted.

Be sure to have a secure mounting method.

It happened to us also. We determined that it was not the transfer value but the order in which you turned on the propane tanks. The transfer valve has an arrow that displays from which tank one is taking propane. When you first open the propane tank valve you need to turn on the tank that the arrow is pointing at, then turn on the second tank.

Check the transfer valve regularly and when the GREEN indicator turns RED, change the transfer value to the second full tank and then you can fill the empty.

Happy travels.

Thanks for the great tip, and from a first time poster. Welcome. I look forward to hearing more from you.
