Back to your original question. The regulator will function ok without a cap however it is not a good idea due to rain, bugs road crap etc put some tape over it. Also current code requires all permanant systems to be two stage regulation (rv's are considered permanant).
Only portable appliances(grills, fish cookers etc) can still use single stage. So if you replace it will be a twin stage.
I agree with the others recycle your cylinder valve slowly to reset the internal excess flow, if that dosent work you may need to replace the pigtail/pol fitting.
EDIT I can not tell from the picture is this a two cylinder set up with an auto change over ? If so then the auto change over head acts as the first stage.

Regards

Hi, thanks, this is a single tank set up. I did manage to get it to work after turning on slowly.
When did this code come into effect?

Thank you all for your brain storming session. It did work after disconnecting and then slowly turning the bottle on slowly.

Cheers to all.

The two stage requirement was made "code" in the 1997 edition of NFPA 58 which is the rules the LP Gas Industry follows. Beats me how a year old RV could/would be incorrect.

Well this propane issue has bitten me also. I fought this dang thing all weekend on my shake down trip and never did get it to work. Thought I had it once but it just ran for a little while longer before the flow slowly faded down to nothing. After reading several posts here it appears that everybody has done many different things all adding up to replacing every gas fitting and regulator.
