Propane Help!!

Came back to the coach this evening and no hot water or stove. Dummy gauge on wall reads full. Guage on tank reads the whole way past full.

The little solenoid to the right of the gas regulator is warm to the touch. Am I missing something stupid or are we out of gas?

There is a small square nut just to the side of the tank valve. That is a pressure valve that the propane service opens when filling the tank. Crack that and see if propane comes out or just air. I assume you have tried to relight all appliances and water heater? The gauge sometimes gives a false reading when empty. the only other thing is if it is cold enough the regulator could be stuck

Check the propane leak detector inside your rig. It's (usually) located near the floor, so maybe someone accidentally kicked the power switch to "off."
