have you tried closing the tank valves tightly, then opening SLOWLY? its possible the excess flow poppet int he tank valve has tripped and shut off the propane (unless you still have propane at other appliances)

You may have the fan set to low or high and not "AUTO". the fan will run whether or not the furnace is fired or not. If on "AUTO", it will only run when fired and for a short cool-down time when the set temp is reached. Worth checking. One DAV to another.

the furnace fan would not run though, only the a/c fan is controlled by the fan function on the thermostat. furnace fan is controlled solely by the furnace control board and kicks in when their is a call for heat (and should shut off after the furnace fails to light after several attempts)

ok i started the stove it lit for 5 secs then went out. checked tank it says half way in-between 1/4 and 1/2. so i just installed the extend a stay and hooked up the new 100 lb propane tank and it works. i guess the coach tank gauge is wrong.

gotta love working on the coach at 10 pm at night when its 40 degrees out.

yup, gotta love it! LOL

I never trust ANY gauge until i know how well they are calibrated. At least you know now that if its below half shes time to refill!

My 150gal fresh water goes from full to 2/3 within 20gal of usage, sits on 2/3 FOREVER and once it hits 1/3 ive only got 5-10gal before the pump sucks air (it doesnt even hit empty )

Had the same problem in very cold condition. Tank gauge showed 3/4 inside and 1/2 on the actual tank. Both were wrong and simply adding propane corrected the issue. This only happens in freezing conditions for us

We had the same problem back when we first got the coach and were stationary for 5 months. The level indicator in the propane tank stuck said we had 1/2 tank we ran out at 2 o'clock in the morning and 25 outside. That is when I got the extend a stay. and electric heaters. When I drove it to get the propane filled it then showed the correct level. I carry a rubber mallet now and tap the tank and that seems to work.
