LP question, Travato

I'm not getting any LP to my stove burners or my heater. Any suggestions?

HI!
Did you give it enough time to purge the air out of the line to the stove?
Has the gas been off for awhile at the shutoff on the tank? It takes some time to purge the air out of the lines when it as been shut down. Do you have a manual shutoff or is it a valve on a switch?

Also, make sure your Emergency Shut Off Switch is in the On position for the propane to flow.

Remember, there is a switch outside and an additional switch inside. BOTH must be in the ON position. If one is off, there will be no gas flow.

Since we're on the subject of propane. I went to have my tank filled. The propane stopped automatically when it was at the proper level. However the bleeder valve which was open never spit out air/propane which it is suppose to when at the proper level.

Any thoughts?
Thanks

So those of you with Travatos, looking at the switch outside, mine is not labeled and is installed sideway unlike the one inside so which side is the on position?

Mine is not labeled either. On page 5-1 of the manual, there is a picture of the outside switch with labels. The picture is shown vertical, but the actual layout on the van is horizontal. Assuming your switch is the same as mine, the left side is the ON position.
Another way of finding out is push the switch one way or the other, go inside and turn on Main Tank Valve Switch. Turn on the stove, if it lights, you have the outside switch in the correct position. If no propane, push the switch the other way.

So i got a call back from a Tech. He said if when you press the right side of the shut off switch you here and smell gas then that is the on position. I think someone said the left side was the on position. So does anyone else here gas comig out the bottom of the RV when you press the right side of the shut off switch outside? Kind of like a relief valve going off.

I depress the left side of the switch to get gas. Look at page 5-1 of your manual. It has a picture of that area, it is vertical so it fits on the page. Rotate the page 90 degrees to the left and it will look like what you have on that panel below the rocker panel.

The tech said "if when you press the right side of the shut off switch you here and smell gas then that is the on position."

Wow, if I heard gas and smelled it I would shut everything off and check for leaks.

In the event you did hear or smell gas in that area, then your overflow valve might be open. That is the valve below that switch.

So I went to Forest City where I bought the Travato. Kind of on our way back to CO. Well there was the Winnebago Rally going on with about 2000 rigs there. Anyways I walked in and told them my problem with the LP and they took my keys and fixed it and I was back on the road in an hour. Wincrasher, you were right it was a blown regulator...Happy Trails!

Awesome! Often a small part causes the biggest problems.

Did you get to enjoy the Rally?

We would have stayed but wanted to stay on schedule to home. I was very impressed with the service at Litchkin, and I didn't feel I was going to get raped or parts stole off my Travato. I never saw so many RVs in one spot. Looks like a great shindig. I guess they have them all year long all over the country.. We'll have to try to catch one. Happy Trails!
