Seneca as regulator

I was having an issue with gas leaking after the propane take and couldn't find the leak. So, i decided to replace the regulator. I bought a Enerco model 73827 from camping world. I installed it and my leaking gas problem is solved!! I got to the track for the weekend and now I can't get anything to light. Any ideas? Wrong regulator or do you have to purge it somehow???

Our Senecas have an excess flow device incorporated into the tank valve, any chance it was tripped? Did you try closing the valve, bleeding the line, and then slowly opening the valve again?

Silly question, the tank didn't leak completely out did it?

Does your unit have the gas cooktop or induction electric? If gas, use the burners to bleed the system down. Otherwise I would just loosen the the hose connection on the regulator outlet then retighten the fitting.

If you replaced the regulator be sure when you open the valve to do it very slowly. There is a built in safety in those things that will shut off gas flow if it senses a major change.

Try tuning it off for a bit...wait a few minutes and then slowly open the valve.
