Outdoor Kitchen gas stove question

I have a KZ C281KBH 2018. Just got back from camping a d ttied to use the outdoor kitchen that has a gas stove. Woulsnt work, coild not even smell gas coming through. I checked gas, gas is good. The flexible gas line that comnects to the stove and to the line under trailer has a valve on it to open and close the gas while habimg the flexible line still attached, i turned the valve both ways it could go and still nothing.

Is there a trick to start it or is the something else im forgetting or is something wrong? Of something wrong, what could it be and is an average joe able to fix it?

Thanks

Well, to start with, was there anything else running on gas at the time? If so and it was working normally then you can assume the regulator was working. If not you may have opened the valve on the tank too quickly tripping the flow restrictor.

My flexible hose for the outdoor kitchen has valves at both ends and when the valve handle is in line with the hose it is open. Sticking out 90 degrees from the hose closes the valve.

It also can take a minute or so before gas reaches the burner if you are just turning the gas line on for the first time. I pulled my trailer out of storage last week and it was over 100 degrees out so firing up the furnace to purge the air from the gas lines was not possible. The thermostat would not call for heat. That meant that the fridge cycled and timed out at least 5 times before there was enough gas to light the fridge.

Next time use the stove top burners....ALL on high or even the water heater

Do you have a yellow lever at the back of the cooktop? The one on my outdoor cooktop opens a valve and prevents the cooktop from being able to be slid back in while on.

I tried that but the fridge is on a separate line on the other side of the trailer.

On my KZ TT, the outdoor kitchen has two propane shutoff valves. One under the trailer where the flex hose for the outdoor stove plugs in and a second valve directly up underneath the stove itself. I leave the second one in the on position all the time.

X2...stove top burners are great for purging any air in the system.
