no LP gas flow...

while driving our coach yesterday, we got a beeping sound and a "no flo" from our refrigerator. I turned on a burner control valve on our gas stove and indeed no gas is flowing.

Seems like the electrically operated gas shutoff valve is malfunctioning??

Any ideas where I should start looking to solve this problem?

Same thing. I kept the stove on with a BBQ lighter lite. After two to three minutes the burner start with starts and stops. It then lite normally. To light the fridge it took over 5 days of start restart to get it working. I'm still working on the On demand hot water. Its as if there was air in the system. I have yet to talk to professional about this.

It could also be a regulator failure. I'm pretty handy, I've done some gas line plumbing in my home, but I don't know how to test a propane regulator. I would not be comfortable taking components off my propane system. I would call in a pro and pay the $$$.

You could try turning off the main shutoff on the tank then turn on a burner on the stove to be sure all pressure is off the line turn off the burner then open the main shutoff very slowly. There is a safety valve built into the tank in case of a leak that may have closed for some unknown reason, I would start looking for leaks before lighting anything soapy water in a spray bottle and start spraying connections or get it to a shop if you feel uncomfortable about doing it.

By saying "electrically operated gas shutoff valve" are you referring to the gas detection system that will turn off you gas supply if it detects gas?

On ours we have had that alarm go off and shut off the gas flow and we have to cycle the power off and back on to reset it. After resetting you can have air in the lines so usually go to the stove and turn the burner on and try to light it with a lighter. It may take awhile before you purge all the air out and the burner stays lit.

Hope this helps.

Yup. I've had that happen before.

Our Damon Astoria has a switch on the control panel with slide switches and the like. This switch is labeled "LP valve"

There is a similar switch in the basement compartment that has the water and sewer connections.

I'm speculating that there might be an electrical fault along that circuit, as we were driving on one of California's rough interstates when the flow of gas was interrupted.

I didn't crawl underneath yet to inspect the gas line coming out of the our ASME LP tank.

If it's an electrical problem, I can probably fix itů.if it's a faulty regulator, that's gonna take a pro.

I was hoping that one of you had seen a problem like this and had gotten it fixed.
