They're both in a basement which has been in the high 50F range lately. Not a whole lot of chance of sunlight hitting them, but not out of the question either.

Definitely going to get some check valves since they're cheap insurance.

Still want to know how to tell if the regulator is messed up.

Edit: Just realized that the regulator has an aircock. Saw that my LHBS has aircocks that also serve as checks. Are all aircocks also check valves? If so, I should be ok.

If the tank is outside the fridge, is there a possibility of a rogue sunbeam heating up the regulator and causing pressure fluctuations?
I have my tank outside my fridge,but I have everything in my basement .the temps are pretty stable all the time.

Same problem and my tanks are in the same room , the room is cold but has temp changes. Low about 45F to a high of 55F. Doesn't seem like a huge change.
