Propane Fill

I have a 2004 Fleetwood Discovery 39 L. I had my propane tank filled today and now I cannot get propane inside the coach. Any thoughts.

Turn the valve back on the tank. Most places leaves it off.

Can't be that easy!..... Lets see the valve seat is stuck closed, it got stripped from the shaft when reopened? ya that's it!
Or like HighBall says opening it too fast will slam it closed.

Maybe try to close the valve completely and opening it slowly. If the valve is open too fast and the flow of propane goes through line too fast it will shut down by itself inside. This is a safety feature on all tanks in case there is a major leak or flow of gas.
Just a thought !!!!

If your Discovery is anything like my Providence, there is a 12v toggle switch at the tank fill that shuts off LP flow. Dispensers turn this off when refueling. Check to make sure it is in the on position.
