gas appliance problems

2007 Jayco 27' camper worked great for first day then the gas oven (burners still work great) won't lite, gas water heater won't lite - can hear clicking but won't ignite (electric still heats water), furnace fan blows but no heat and shuts off after 30 sec to a min. Haven't checked if gas portion of fridge works or not but I do know the electric does. I have replaced (refilled) propane tanks, no fuses have blown. The first day everything worked great and now nothing will ignite on gas appliances(oven, furnace, water heater). Any suggestions for the problem greatly appreciated.

Try turning off the tank valves, disconnect the coupler from the propane tank and then reconnect it. Purge air from line with stove burner. If that does not work it could be a regulator issue. Welcome to the forum.

Sometimes when you turn the propane tank on, the tank thinks there is a leak and stops the flow of propane. Close the valve, open it very slowly and then try lighting the stove.
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D
