08 Rockwood Tent Rig

I have had nothing but trouble out my 08 camper. Dealer fault, though. Just picked it up from 6 months in service at dealer, went camping and the propane will not flow any where, stove, frig, furnace, or grill. tank was filled when rig left the dealer.....any info would be helpful!

Sounds like a regulator problem to me but i am not familar with the FR pop up.Also are you sure the dealer filled it or just said they did .Did you try and hook up a different tank or hook that tank from the camper to a grill or something to rule out tank failure? I am just throwing thoughts out here .There cant be to much to the system tank, hose, regulator and since your not getting fuel to anything it has to be in tank or regulator. Sorry cant be more help but hang tight someone else will post that can be more helpful

Your problem is likely the overflow protection device on the tank, known as the OPD. Try this simple fix: close the valve on the tank, wait a few minutes and the open the valve slowly, slowly being the important part. Open a burner control on your stove and light. It might take a few seconds for the gas to reach the burner. Costs you nothing to try, so go for it.

It could be the excess flow preventer(s). If the valves are opened too fast there is a device that almost shuts the flow from the cylinder off completely. Close the cylinder valve all the way, wait a few seconds then S L O W L Y turn the valves back on. If it's not that try removing the acme nut and replacing it securely. If it's not that, it's more than likely the regulator.
