torriem are you closing your baffle completely on your canola tank? I'm pretty sure mine is open slightly(I have a P1070 to be clear).
If I'm running tank 2 and 3 together, then yes I pretty much close the baffle on tank 3 completely off. There's enough air leakage to pressurize the tank, but since the air is already coming down the runs from tank 2, I don't need anything in tank 3 really. In fact sometimes even if we aren't using tank 2, we'll still put the air we need through that baffle, and then close baffle 3 right off. Works well for us.
Also does closing tank 2 baffle stop air from getting to tank 3? I didn't think so but am not completely certain, the P1060 could be different from my P1070 but I thought it was only where the fan was located and the guts were the same...
Well each tank has its own independent baffle. So shutting baffle 2 will not prevent air from going through baffle 3. Is that what you're asking?
I run a P1060 tank and the way it was explained to me was you need the lightest seed in the front position.
Very good point. Ours is a tow-between, so for us we always put the lightest product closest to the drill, which is tank 3.
I didn't even think of this when answering before.

That's my understanding as well, although like I said, that's for a tow-between configuration I think.
