Propane problem

I've got dual propane tanks with a Fairview regulator on a small TT we got from a dealer second-hand last fall. All has worked as advertised even up to the first day out this trip. Then the fires went out. Plenty of fuel, green lights indicated both ways on the regulator switch. Wait a little while and the stove will light right up with good pressure for maybe 20 seconds, then die out.

Is this a regulator problem or a line issue somewhere? Thank goodness for microwaves or we would have left early, but I'm parking it till this gets fixed. Any suggestions?

Try turning off pprapane tanks and waiting 30 seconds then very slowly turn them back on.

If this was your first trip check and make sure anything your trying to light doesn't have anything blocking it. i.e. neighbor couldn't get his hot water tank to light. Found out that over the winter cobwebs were built up in the tube. Once he cleaned it out he was fine.
