LP Blocked Problem-2002 Fleetwood Discovery

Just filled LP tank and gas will not flow to appliances. This is the second time this has occured. Technician fixed it the first time but didn't say what he did. Anyone have a suggestion about how to resolve this issue? The emergency shut-off switch is in the ON position.

Probably tripped the tanks internal hi flow cutoff valve.

Turn the gas valve off at the tank.


Go inside and turn the stove on for a few seconds to relieve any pressure.

Go back outside, very slowly open the gas valve. This should reset it.

Try turning off the shutoff switch and then open the stove burner valves.

Close the burner valves and switch it back on.

Going to go try it now.....

Had to toggle the switch to OFF a couple of times before the burners would stay lit but it's working fine now. The refrigerator is working on LP and all burners on the cooktop light and stay lit. THANKS for your solution.

Regulator most likely and not only should you have asked, but watched as well... Just saying that you might have learned something, by doing so.

My bad again, I guess, but it's still makes for a good point for never passing up a chance to learn something.
As for reading all the posts, try doing this over on RV.net and whereas this guy is rebuilding an old Pace Arrow or maybe the thread on Chinese Gensets.....
Never hurts to offer and opinion after the fact, anyway, which may come in handy for next time or for helping out another reader....

Whenever I first turn on the gas valve, I need to turn on a stove burner and hold a match there until it purges the air out of the system and the burner stays lit. Often 30 seconds or more. Then the fridge will work, but not before. Not sure how air gets into the gas pipes.

It doesn't......


What actually happens is when you shut down all propane use the regulator goes into 'lock up'.......then you valve out the propane service valve.
No demand/no flow..no reaction from regulator


When you valve the propane back in....a demand has to be placed on regulator in order for it to react and allow flow thru system
Easiest method is via stove top burners because they are 'manual' ----fridge/water heater/furnace all have controls that will lock out attempts when flame hasn't PROVED it lit.


Once regulator has that demand placed on it and has established flow then the other appliances can get flow thru their lines.




Seems like air but propane has a narrow combustion window so when 1st lighting off stove tops it will take a bit as the system comes up in pressure/flow which then meets the air/fuel ratio needed for ignition
