Propane Gas Leak

We just got back from our first trip in the new Knight. NC to NY and back. About 7 miles from home we were getting off the highway onto our exit and I heard a loud beep (smoke detector sounding beep) then I could smell propane. I jumped out of the coach and ran around to the side and turned the propane off at the tank. Everything cleared up. Got home and checked my little grill camping propane cylinders that were in the basement they were all fine.

Turned the main valve back on and after emptying out the coach we were all dizzy and light headed. I turned off the main valve again.

We got the coach from Lazydays and we are still within our 30 day warranty from them.

Just thought I would put a post out about it in case somebody had some quick and safe things I could check...


Thanks,


Troy

Before you do anything like call lazy days....

Check the stove burner knobs.. Make sure they are not off, off on off.

Note: I sometimes make "house calls" to help folks in the campground.. No guarantee save no charge (Donations if you must) That was one of them,, Off Off ON off

Reset to off off off off and the problem went away.

All your propane appliances should be vented to the outside of the coach with the exception of cooking appliances. Since you had enough propane inside the coach to make passengers feel "light headed" I would highly suspect a cooking appliance or it's connections. No guarantee that is the culprit. You could mix up some Woolite soap and water in a spray bottle to spray connections.

The only appliance we have that runs on gas is the cook top. I will have to check it more thoroughly.

I used to have a trailer (PUP) where if somethign pressed down on the knobs, even in the OFF position they would pass gas... I do not think that is the case with you, but.

Put a little soap and water in a spray bottle and start spraying the fittings. If it is there, you will find it.
