In-Line Frame LP Tank Usage

We are trying for the first time to run the stove from the in-line LP tank. I disconnected the portable tank and flipped up the LP cut off tank switch inside the tank pull box. Unfortunately, we are not getting gas to the stove. What am I missing?

We have the two 40lb propane tanks. There have been a couple of posts related to your question. You might find them with a search.

Thanks for the reply and yes, there have been a couple of posts that don't come up right away while searching. Evidently, there is a thumb screw on the big tank that was never turned on by my dealer.

Sadly, you are not alone with the big tank issue. We all seem to find out the hard way. A handout or information from someone at the dealership would have helped me and probably everyone else.

Mine still doesn't work but it worked fine last year. I have to check and see if my detector is working first and then we'll see. Hope for the best.

I had tried everything I could think of but still not LP at stove or furance. Then just last week, I turned on the heat pump and it was working fine. During the night, we lost power so no moe heat pump. I just stayed under the covers until morning. When I got out of bed, I noticed that it felt worm. When I went down into the kitchen, to my surprise the gas furnace was working. I have no idea why.
