The tech said something about a restriction and they had several that did that. It works fine now.

I had a hose plug up a couple years ago. The guy that replaced it, at the campground, said it's pretty common. It must be, I noticed later that many campground stores have the hoses in stock. Something about a one-way valve that gets stuck and becomes a "no-way" valve.

I'd bet it is the flow restrictor in the hose from the tank to the regulator (pig tail). If you turn the gas on quickly the restricter can close and you've got no gas. I just went through this. Sometimes you can tap the tank-end and free up the valve. Unscrew the pig tail from the reg, hook it to the tank and slowly open the tank valve. Should be a little flow, open it more and the flow limiter will kick in. The RV shop will have one for around $20, I got lucky and had one made at a propane shop for $7 !!! IMHO this is a prob not worthy of a warranty claim. If the pig-tail will flow but you've still got no gas then then probably it's the reg. That is a $20 part as well. Again not worthy of a dragging your TT in for service. IMHO for a $100 or less, I'll do it myself if I can figure it out. Mostly it ain't rocket science.

I have a spare pig tail hose. I'll swap it out and see if there is a difference. Thanks!!

Propane tanks have an excess flow shutoff. Sometimes if you open the valve too fast, it senses that there's a leak and the flow shuts off. Try closing the valve, bleeding off some pressure (stove top burner would work), and then opening the tank valve very slowly. That might be your problem.

Had the regulator take a dump on me this weekend on the 5lb tank I use on my 39,000 BTU burner. Would only let a whisper of gas through. Time to watch the roadsides on garbage day!!

Went to a "winterization" presentation today. Presenter seemed pretty knowledgeable. Said 5 years is about what to expect from a reg. They're cheap so a spare might be in order.

I had that problem when I turned on the bottle, hardly any flow, so for the hect of it I tapped the regulator and immediatly got flow...be sure to run your stove for a minute to let air out of the system............

I had one regulator fail in 18 years with our first fifth-wheel. It was quite easy to put on a new one. I never ever had a problem with how I turned on the gas, but that technology might not have been around with we bought our trailer, 1993. Hope our new one lasts longer than 4-5 years, however will have to wait until we pick it up, and go camping, after April 15th.
