Routing to the same IP address via different tunnels.

Not applicable

routing the same IP within a VR via 2 different ipsec tunnels, I currently have a primary tunnel and a backup tunnel built for a customer.  All traffic from this customer comes from the same PAT address to my firewall.  I have 2 static routes going to the same IP addresses via 2 different tunnel interfaces using a metric of 1 for the primary and a metric of 10 for the seconday.  While doing failover testing, when the primary tunnel went down and the secondary tunnel came online, routing still tried to use the primary link instead of using the secondary link.  In order to get traffic flow to continue, I had to disable the primary route before the secondary route took over.  I am looking for a way to make this automatic.

Tunnel monitor allows to wait recover/ fail over options.

Its available under Network -> IPSec tunnel -> advanced options.

Can you check setting up tunnel monitor and use option as failover?

You will need to configure tunnel interface with an IP for tunnel monitoring.
