Propane not working ...

No furnace, stove, frig, etc. LP clearly not working. First journey ... It's turned on in the coach and outside and has been operating properly till now. Any thoughts of things to check would be greatly appreciated. Maybe something super obvious even that we might be missing. Thanks!!!

Some MH have a cutoff valve just passed the turnoff valve close to the LP tank that can be the problem. My Revolution had one that was tied to the LP sniffer below the icebox (ref). Mine had been removed.

What kind of RV do you have? What does the gauge at the LP tank read? Not the in coach gauge.

When the propane in my then 15 year old coach stopped working It was caused by a bad 2 stage regulator.


Most RV stores/dealers stock them....($25-$35).

Yeah, it really is important to know what kind of rig you are in. For instance I had a damon coach that had a switch in the galley and a switch behind a panel in the below storage area near the servicing point but it was hidden pretty good. Did the problem start after a refill or not.

Rkh are you talking about the level of propane? Couldn't find a gauge out there. We did just refill it, hoping that maybe it was not registering properly. Only needed 11 gallons so that wasn't the problem.

RKH hubby will check further on that to see. Forgive my ignorance but what will the gauge potentially tell us? We know the tank is full. Will the gauge give other info?

If you have no gas into any place in the coach, your problem is external. You are either out of propane, or the valve on the tank is turned off, or the regulator is bad that Mel illustrated.

On my rig for the gas to be flowing:

Propane in tank
12v Battery Switch on
Propane Sniffer/Alarm must be on with a green LED signal light.
Propane valve on the tank must be turned open.

Easiest to light the gas stove to determine if gas is flowing.

If all the above are operational but still no gas

Replace the regulator at the tank.
