Jayfeather. No propane at the outside grill burners... troubleshoot advice

Ok. I.have a 2008 30' Jayfeather. My heat works along with my stove top. But I'm getting no propane at the outside grill burners...

I have flipped the propane lever under the rv for the propane supply for the grill but I can't get any propane out of the grill still.

I don't know if the line under the rv is clogged .. (I highly doubt it. ) is the regulator blocking the flow. I'm not sure

My oven also I've never been able to light. I got the rv in 2015 so haven t had it long

Anyone have any troubleshoot advice

First, welcome to the JOF. And don't rule out the line being clogged. Spiders and other little creatures love making their nests in the lines. Happens with my grill supply line at home on a normal basis. Every year I need to check it. Just food for thought. Other than that, I'm puzzled as well.

When you turn on the grill, do you hear anything at the burner, like gas is trying to push air through, or is it dead silent? We have a two burner stove on the back corner, and it takes a while for the gas to finally light. The oven can be a bear, also. Sometimes takes three kitchen matches to finally get the pilot to stay lit. We found that wood matches work better on a pilot, rather than a butane stick lighter. Not sure why. Also, did you get your TT new, or is it new-to-you? Has the outside grill ever worked before now?

What kind of grill do you have for outside? Did it ever work? Does it have its own regulator? If it does, it won't work well, perhaps not at all. We have a Coleman that fits that description (think it's an LXE "Road Trip" model); you can do it, but you have to create your own adapter to replace the Coleman regulator.

A couple of weeks ago we just lit the oven in our 2016 Jay Feather for the first time. It can be a challenge to follow the instructions. You must light the pilot correctly, or you will probably not get the oven to light.

Since it's a 2008, you may be dealing with stuff that's wearing out, needs replacement, or just a major cleaning and maintenance, especially if it did work at one time.

Good luck!

Roger

Spiders inside the line???

So did you have spiders inside your line or just on the inside of the fittings?

I can't imagine how a spider or bug would get inside my line?

I guess they could crawl it the male end on the grill that doesn't have a ball valve seal.

Well where did you find the spider and how did you clean it out

When I turn on the stove I hear nothing

That's interesting. I hear no sound of anything when I turn the burner on.

It's a small grill that sits on the side of the rv in front of the door. Ha ha I wish I could describe it better. I d attach a picture if I had one.

How can I test for propane at the supply line hook up at the bottom of the rv?

There is a spring loaded ball valve on the female connection point I think?

Can I push a screw driver on the ball to check for propane?

Where can I buy a supply line without a regulator if that's my problem

If you use something to push on the ball, make sure it's something sturdy, and won't scratch. That ball is the seal to keep propane in. A better way is to remove the male fitting from the gill hose, and (with main tanks OFF) put it into the female connector, and have a helper slowly turn on a tank, and listen for gas. Be SURE you are nowhere near an ignition source. Your propane is regulated at the tanks on the tongue, already. If your grill has another regulator on it, you'll need to do something different.

Yes my rubber line that goes from rv to grill has a regulator on it.

So I'll have to push the ball.

I can use a plastic chopstick. That shouldnt scratch it.

I'm assuming my rubber line regulator is bad. Will I have to get a new one at an rv store or is there a better place to get one.

You don't need the regulator on the grill hose, if the gas supply is regulated from your main tanks. All you need is a flow control valve on the grill, to adjust the flame. I'm guessing the regulator is also the flame adjustment knob? Another way is use a separate fuel source from the TT, like a BBQ 20lb tank, or the 16.4 oz. propane bottles, if you have the right connection for that.
