Most aircraft (at least of this era) don't draw directly from wing tanks (as far as I'm aware) but in fact use the wing tanks to constantly fill the main tank until they're empty... so yes leave it on even then.

Vapour lock? Try switching the pressurised fuel tank cock on at altitude ?

Normal level was 20,000ft for pressurisation but it might be worth a try at 15,000.
