    Hi XXLS,

    Personally I think if you are just doing single tank back mount you do not need the 5th port.

    5th port would be on the bottom facing down when connecting the first stage to the tank OR pointing to your right side when attached horizontally.

    When I dive single tank, I make the first stage vertical. The two regs come out of the LP ports on the right, the two inflation hoses and HP hose come out of the left.

    #4 is T bone describing my set up, but having the primary reg come out of the 5th port and not one of the standard LP ports.
