Are you using netkey or klips. If using netkey, use interfaces"%defaultroute"

I am not sure what "more tunnels" has to do with this. If you need more
then one subnet-to-subnet, you will have to configure more then one tunnel.
You cannot "route add" stuff through an ipsec tunnel (unles syou add another
layer of encapsulation, eg use GRE)

If you mean your one tunnel is not workin:
check with ipsec verify.
check that NAT is not natting ipsec packets
