There have been several instances during our plays where we have exhausted a mountain tile during the Action Phase (Phase 5). This actually happens quite regularly and leads to situations where players have no resources to take. We have only been able to play the 4 viking spot in the Mountain and Trade section which lets you take 2 resources from 4 different mountains once. This leads us to believe we are doing something wrong. We have been adding a new mountain tile during the Mountain strip phase (Phase 11) but have not been replacing tiles as they are used up during play. Should we be? We can't seem to find anything in the rules about replacing mountain tiles outside of phase 11.

You are playing it correctly.

New mountain strips do not come out during the action phase.
They only come out during the "Update Mountain Strips" phase.

One thing I recently realized I messed up in my first couple of games was the number of mountain strips that are supposed to be in play at the start of the game, so you might try double-checking that.

Yes, there should be two mountains available in 1-3 player games and 3 in 4 player games. Note that the latter means there will not be a new mountain added at the end of round 6 in a 4 player game. Otherwise you have been playing correctly. Not that it is not necessarily efficient to hoard a lot of resources, so on the long run you might exhaust the strips less.

Relatedly, also remember that you can buy ships with silver outright, making using wood for them less critical.
