My wife turned on the gas around 2:00 PM and when I got home around 6:00 PM there was no smell. I put foaming soap all over the stove as recommended and no leaks. The only item left is the fridge and I DID NOT have the fridge on so my next test is going to be to turn the fridge on and see if the smell is present if it is then it is most likely as "sdennislee" indicated and the fridge is not burning all the propane and needs to be serviced. I will not be able to get to it for a while but will let you know once I have figured it out so that everyone will know.

Thanks again to all of you and stay tuned. If you have anything else to add, please let me know.

ALmost any RV shop can service the refrigerator.

I have the entire propane system checked once a year as part of my maintenance plan.

Hi there one other note for peice of mind might be to check or change your gas detector unit any unit older than 5 years it might not function properly, propane supports combustion from a concentration of 2 to 10 percent in air, it has a relativley small flammable range but fairly low concentation as well, don't wait too long to trace that odour the small leak could grow bigger.
