Help with LP Gas Alarm - Tank Solenoid
I just purchased a 2000 CC Magna from an individual and am having problems with the propane system. I attempted to start the refrigerator and run it on LP but it failed to work. The refer works well on 110v. When I first turned on the LP alarm so the solenoid valve on the tank would open it chirped continuously. Since the coach is 10 years old I assumed the alarm was bad and past its expiration date anyway.
I replaced the CCI # 7719 alarm with a Sat-T-Alert 30 Series Clasic LP Gas Alarm. According to the package label and the RV parts store, this is a direct replacement for the CCI. Although this new alarm has no on/off switch like the CCI, when I connected it, the LED came on and turned green. While I was replacing the alarm, I tested the voltage to the alarm and it was above 12 volts. Although the CCI is a 3 wire alarm, while the new alarm is a two wire alarm, the two red wires on the CCI alarm are joined together and connected to the hot lead from the coach.
I'm still getting no propane to the stove and I assume the refer since it won't work on LP. I've checked the wires at the solenoid with a test light and it failed to light. I've looked through the wiring diagrams in my owner's manual and can find nothing on the lp alarm and lp tank solenoid.
Does anyone have any tips that may help me with this problem?
