Also if it's my regulator what's the best one to replace it with I may just Amazon prime next day air one to the camp ground.
And before I left I put two new pigtails from mr heater, trailer is only a few years old with less than like 15 trips (trips are not longer than a week)
Your information is a little sketchy at best. I get the sense that this is an outside stove, connected to a quick connect. In diagnosing Lp issues, you have two choices 1. You should be able to tell what the gas pressure is. Its measurment is given in inches of water column ( 11.5" W.C. if my memory is correct. You can find the exact spec.) measured downstream of the regulator with a U-tube manometer. If I've totally lost you, then 2. Replace regulator, usually preset. You can get manual switchover or auto.
I'm really curious though about the Mr. Heater pigtails. I assume this is the male quick disconnect. These I will share the insight of my experience with you. Maybe this will be applicable. Recently, did a bottle to bulk conversion on a Weber Q with one of these Mr. Heater pigtails from CW. Externally, looked exactly like the one that was on my rail mounted stove. It wouldn't go all the way into the female quick lp coupling on the trailer.
After looking at the opening end, I discovered that the stove's coupling had a counterbore in the opening approx. .200" deep and the new Mr. Heater coupling was flush to the end. The i.d. opening was the same.
There is a flow control safety valve in these female quick connects that a) fits inside that counter bore on the pigtail and b) when fully coupled, the depth of the counterbore depresses that valve allowing full flow of the lp, allows the locking mechanism of the coupling to engage and the ball valve lever to be rotated and initiating gas flow. I was able to modify the pigtail myself, not all are equally mechanical. Look at the pigtails online (Camco) and look for that counterbore.
BTW, next time be really specific what kind of unit and details. There's a whole bunch of really knowledgeable people on the thread willing to throw in their $0.02 in
