Turn a burner on the stove on, go up to the propane tanks and turn the valve off, then turn back on s-l-o-w-l-e-y. Just keep trying, mine sometimes takes numerous tries before it lights. I usually wait until I can hear it coming out of the burner on the stove, then I try the fridge next and it does the trick every time.

have to let any air purge out of the lines. ours takes several mins before the water heater pilot will light. x2 on the opening the valve slowly also.

There is an excess flow valve in the propane line, turn it on VERY slowly..........happy camping!
