Propane quit

We are boondocking and woke up this morning to no propane. The stovetop lights and burns for 30 seconds or so and goes out. If I turn on the furnace while the stovetop is burning, the stovetop goes out and the furnace won't fire. I've changed bottles, opened slowly etc. All of this worked yesterday. I'm assuming this is a bad regulator?

Can you verify you have propane?

Try this to reset the regulator:
1. Shut off the tank valve
2. opening a stove burner on high for 2 minutes to relieve any residual pressure
3. shut off the burner valve
4. open tank valve slowly

Awesome! I learned that trick a few years ago when my propane smoker wouldn't get up to temp. Happy camping!
