Propane not flowing in 2003 Bounder

The propane isn't flowing in my 2003 bounder. I have gas nowhere fridge, stove, hw heater, furnace nowhere. The leak detector seem to be working fine the only thing I can think of left is a fuse somewhere or a bad emergency shut of switch. Anybody know if there is a fuse and where would it be.

Two items:

1) That vintage motorhome may have a propane detector that shuts off the propane. If you look at your propane tank, you may see the solenoid valve plumbed in just before the regulator. This solenoid is controlled by a propane sensor. Look around inside near the floor for a propane detector, make sure the detector is turned on.

2) Your tank may have a high flow shutoff, i.e. if the valve senses a high flow rate, it trips this safety feature and shuts off the flow. To reset it, turn the propane off at the tank. Then open the stove burners for about 30 seconds to bleed any pressure in the line. Turn them back off. Now, very slowly, crack open the main propane valve very slowly.

Your Bounder was manufactured with a CCI 7719 propane detector with solenoid valve at the propane tank.
If you have an on/off switch on the detector it is original.
Turn detector off and then back on, when the detector quits beeping, you should hear a thunk from the solenoid valve. The thunk means the valve opened and the system is working. If you feel the need to hotwire the solenoid, the coil is 9 volts @ 0.1 amps. Do the math and add the necessary resistor.
If your detector has aged out, there are 3 options.
CCI is out of business.
1: Replace the detector/valve assembly with a Safe-T-Alert detector/valve assemble.
2: Remove the valve and replace the detector with an audible alert only.
3: Have your CCI 7719 repaired by Larry @

I have one of Larry's repaired detectors on my bounder and it has worked well for 8 years.
I personally like the safety feature of having the propane shut off if there is a leak and you're not in the area.
