Fuel filter light, just changed filter. Please help

My fuel filter light on the dash keeps coming on. It only does so while driving, I just changed the filter yesterday. I put a new selector valve in and dropped and cleaned out the mid-ship tank today. The truck switches from tank to tank fine. Don't know what I've missed or what to do

Your fuel pump may be on its way out. Check the fuel pressure on the shader valve on the filter housing. You can do it with a pencil type air pressure gauge, just wrap the gauge up in a rag or you'll take a diesel bath. You should see more than 30psi at a idle. Less than that and it is the pump.

Ok thanks, I'll check the pressure tomorrow. I'm not having any issues running off the rear tank. So is there anything else I should look into?
