Class A Motorhome Propane Tank

My propane tank will not let itself supply to any appliances. There is a possible solenoid with two wires inline with the tank . Is it the problem ?

Do you know it has a solenoid valve or are you asking? Is the main valve tuened on? Do you have gas in the tank?

The problem could be a solenoid valve, or could be a bad propane regulator, or the service valve may simply be turned off.

There is a safety shutoff that could be stuck on need replacing. High flow shutoff and propane alarm leak shutoff.

If you would place the Make, Model, and Year in your signature it will help us help you.
There are MANY Class As

Welcome to iRV2. The best place for help.

If you found 2 wire near the regulator, there is most likely a sol. valve.
In many MH the switches are in up to, 3 places. The Gas detector can trigger the valve. There could be a switch near the fill, and one inside the coach. Mine is in the One Place Panel.(hall way)

Good luck!

Start simple first. Close the service valve and reopen slowly.If the excess flow is triggered this will reset. The 2 wires on many units are for the level indicator inside the coach. Regulators also fail more often than you would think and are cheap and easy to replace.
