I have not seen a dual solenoid installation on any boat.
Most installations I have seen use one solenoid and regulator with a T to the appliances similar to that shown below.
Just wanted to mention that the code now, for a two tank installation, is to have a regulator with two gauges, and two hose connections, so that each tank can be individually leak checked. I have a PR-5412 (scroll down).

All your comments about the second T arrangement I agree with though.

I also have the S1-A leak detector and solenoid valve control.
