But I'm sure you addressed it when you said you only have one tank.

I hope this doesn't offend you, just trying to cover all the bases. Did you open the valve on the tank after they filled it? Most stations close the valve but don't bother to open it back up.

Can you get a flame at the stove?

Could be-----------

Could be the "PIG TAIL" line that hooks to the tank. It has a ball check valve inside the line that is known to get stuck. I had to replace mine after doing the exact thing as you. Topped off a tank that was working, after topping off the tank, could not get any gas. Bad pigtail. Try disconnecting the tank from the pigtail. Open the valve on your stove to bleed any pressure down. Re-connect the pig tail, turn on tank valve slowly.

It is a start for your problem!

Try another tank.
Any gas grill tank should work.
Borrow one from a neighbor if necessary just to test.
That way you can see if it's a stuck valve in your tank or
something else further down the pipe

Good luck!

No flame at stove and yes the valve has been opened and closed multiple times now. No gas to stove or fridge. One tank on a 2014 3050S. I'll have to check that pigtail line when I get home. Seems ridiculous to have these problems, should be open and lets go.

What does the gauge on the tank say? Is it full, or even beyond full?

For the gas to work properly, the tank must have only about 80% propane in it. The gauge on the tank will read full when the tank has 80% liquid in it. The other 20% of the tank is room for the propane to vaporize and thus turn into the gas needed to burn. When filling the tank, there is a small triangle shaped valve that the technician is suppose to open (a little "vent"). When the gas escaping from the vent turns to liquid, the tank is 80% full. The vent is closed by the tech and the filling line shut off. If that is not done properly, the tank can be overfilled and have so much liquid in it that there is no room for the propane to vaporize.

You should return to the place that filled it and have them verify that they have not overfilled the tank. Don't try to check the vent yourself. The escaping propane, liquid or vapor, is dangerous. Gloves, eye protection a must. All power must be off in MH. These are the standard precautions all techs should take.

Much of what has been said about removing pigtails, etc., applies more to portable tanks on trailers. You should not have to do that on your MH.

Thanks RvBill3 that is most logical answer so far. the gauge is not past full and my RV dealer topped it off. Apparently I'll have to go back to them.
