Where's the LP Leak Detector?

I'm a newbie with a 1990 Pace Arrow and trying to solve a no propane problem. The tank is 3/4 full, I've opened all four burners on the stove for 2 minutes, I've shut the tank off then opened the burners then opened the valve slow and still no gas. I'm thinking its the leak detector solenoid after the regulator but I'm unable to find the leak detector after crawling on the floor up and down the RV. If you can help me find this, I'd be grateful. Thanks,

Look near the floor about 3 inches up on a wall - there may be a propane detector. If you have one and it's not turned on(flashing green light) you will not get propane. Another way to tell if you should have one of these is to look at the tank itself, there will be a solenoid valve on the line coming out of the tank. It has two wires coming off it. If you have that you also have an LP Detector and it MUST be on to get propane.

Thanks, 4Knights. I do have that valve on the tank with the two wires but looking inside the RV I can't find the detector panel on any wall down near the floor. I started at the door which is where I thought it should be then went to the front of the RV and then all the way back to the bedroom. I looked behind the couch and under the dinette and wonder if its inside a cabinet? Where is yours?

Mine is on the Hallway on the wall just across from the fridge/stove. Yours may look different (color/shape) or possibly under the dinette where your feet go. Or maybe at the door near the step? Call Fleetwood they should know exactly where it is.
You will need you VIN and your FIN. The vin is chassis number, FIN is Fleetwood I'd number- tells you every option and color they built into your rig. Your FIN should be on a plate at the door or near the drivers seat low on the wall or floor. VIN is in same place as a car Drivers front dash look at it from outside looking towards drivers seat.

While you have them on the phone ask for ALL the diagrams/schematics for your coach. I have all wiring, plumbing diagrams and man it helps track stuff down.

Hi, 4Knights,
Thanks for all your help! Mine is also across the stove on the wall. It was turned off and after resetting I was able to light the burners no problem. Now to get the new brake lines put in and take her out for a weekend.
thanks again,
