Moving the slide out is an interesting idea and may help. However the fridge is not getting gas either so I do not beleive that's the problem

Is your propane detector "on" inside your RV? Some of them control an electric solenoid near your propane tank to shut gas supply if LP detector activates? If you have a solenoid near your tank it should be warm to the touch if working properly. If cool then solenoid is close and gas shut off.

I'm not sure about propane detector. I have the electronic gauge for fill level and a carbon monxide detector inside. This is a motorhome. I only remember seeing a wire for the fill sensor.

There will be a propane detector inside your unit.

I once had a bad regulator that didn't allow any gas flow.

I am betting on a bad regulator.

The propane detector on the Sunseeker is not connected to a shut off solenoid on the tank.

It could be the regulator, but the ones that have been going bad on 1-2 year old Sunseekers (and others) have been outright leaks. Mine went bad when one year old and it was obvious--propane was flowing freely out of it.

The fact that this happened immediately after filling the tank still makes me think it is something in the way the tank was filled (namely, too full).

Apparently something stuck. I tapped around valve etc. with a rubber mallet. Low and behold I got gas...
