I drilled a 1" hole in the front of the cover so I can see the change-over gauge with the cover in place.

[QUOTE=Burloak;54672]Actually you end up taking the cover off even more often to check the auto cutover valve status..

Exactly. Mine is a too-snug fit between my tongue box and the tongue jack so it isn't going anywhere. That said it seems a simple thing to loop a rope through that bottom tab and tie it to the frame.

Why do you have to remove the cover to see the switch-over valve? It can be seen through the lid.......!!!

Exactly! I started to wonder if some folks had been overcome by fumes ;-)

The 21 with dual tanks has the gauge vertical facing the tow; thinking of either remounting when I get mine or a hole with
plexiglass window.

Hmm.. I'm not able to determine the change over valve status (green or red indicator) without removing the tank cover.

I guess there are various set-ups and accessibility. Mine is a 17B with dual tanks. There is the ETI storage box between the trailer and the tanks. It"s easy to flip the little lid and see what's up.

Speaking of propane, has anyone felt the need to change out the dual propane hoses at the switch over valve?
