LP gas detector and gas stove

Since my rewiring my 83 Pace Arrow I have discovered now my LP gas detector does not come on and while I was testing my stove to see if I was getting propane that too did not light, so I guess the solenoid does not seems to be activated, According to my propane gauge it looks as if I have at least 1/2 tank,[also the switch on the dash say it is 3/4 full] can anyone tell me how to trouble shoot this system to get it working again before my maiden trip. I let the stove run about 30 seconds to bleed any air that may have been in the system and still it would not light. I had no problem before rewiring the batteries.

I hope this end up being my final problem.

The LP detector may have have 2 wires powering it. One from the house batteries and one from the chassis.
Have you taken it off the wall to check if it is getting power.
Some have a on/off and reset switch on them.
Is it turned off?
Have you tried to reset it?
Are they a solenoid for it on the LP tank?

You have to look for a fuse for your LP gas detector, the detector may have a wire lead off it that may go to a valve on your LP tank that will open if LP detector finds everything OK.
Fuse maybe in 12v fuse panel or behind the detector in wall.

When you bled your stove you should have smelled the propane if it was getting to the stove

Feedback

Thanks for the feed back, now I have not yet searched for the fuse, I will remove the detector wall plate to see if it is behind it, or at least to test it to see if it has power, I do no recall seeing a fuse in my panel diagram. I assume the gas valve must be one to get power to those leads

No I did not smell any gas, as I thought I would.

On that note how accurate are the gauges , I do not really trust the one on the dash, but if I read the glass on on the tank correctly I have at least a half a tank, but then again I have no real experience reading that type of gauge either.
