Anyone with propane issues ?

Hi guys, hoping you are having a great camping season.

All of my appliances were working fine until this weekend when we went camping and l tried to use the stove and the water heater but they were dead. First l thought my propane tank was empty , but no. Then l checked all the connections to make sure there wasn't a leak somewhere, everything was fine. Then l disconnect the hose from the regulator, open the tank valve and no gas is coming out from the hose. What could be wrong with the hose? it will be a year old in August.

Thanks in advance, good luck.

Had the high pressure hose on my 2012 replaced under warranty....It could also be your regulator.....following is a guide to see if the vents could be obstructed. If there's is nothing visible...let the dealer handle it. Hopefully it's not inconvenient taking it in.

One last thought....make sure you open the tank valve slowly. Tanks have a safety device that pops-off in the event of high flow (compromised valve or high pressure hose). It will reset if you close the valve and re-open it slowly.

Good Luck

Sounds like you may have activated the safety cutoff. Put it back together, remove the connection to the tank to relieve any pressure, put the connector back on the tank and open the tank valve very VERY SLOWLY. I had this same issue, if this doesn't work then look for spider nests, or just purchase a new pigtail.

Yup, open slowly. Guy at a propane shop told me the pigtail may need a little "rapping" to get the valve to reset.

Remove the tank from the holder and shake it and bang the foot of it on the ground a few times.. the internals sometimes jam on these new tanks... The attendant had to do that to one of my tanks just to fill it...
