We were using our heat pumps until the outside temps were below 36. Below that we were trying to use gas and the temps at night were getting down to the upper teen. No success. Last night it reached a low of only 12 and the furnaces are now working correctly. That why I'm thing I spent the last 6 weeks working the air out. My tank was at 92% when I picked it up. It went down to 48% and I had it filled back up. Anyway, for the present time everything is running fine. We will see what happens tonight.

I have the 2015 version of your rig. Had a similar problem. Would work fine above freezing but shut down or almost down when below freezing. Got an injection of Methanol from my propane supplier and no more problem. Since you are now working at 12 degrees may not be the same problem, but I would still get the methanol. It won't hurt and might help now or in the future. Not all propane dealers do the methanol. My dealer did it for free but $20 seems to be about normal.

I will take your advice. Seems like a good Preventive maintenance.
