No LP for stove or heat??

OK, so I am a third owner in an RV I have never used. (2009 Forest River Georgetown 357QS) I picked up the RV last night to load her up today and we are hitting the road for our first road trip this afternoon. The problem is I am not getting any LP to the stove or the heater...and probably the fridge. (connected to electric last night so fridge is cold) LP meter reads 2/3 full yet nothing? Is there a switch I am missing? Is it possible it is empty and my gauge is broken? Or am I just a complete idiot...please don't answer that last part!

No stove, no heat, no fridge and an angry wife will not make for a great maiden voyage. PLEASE HELP!!!

Thanks

Check that your LP/CO detector is working as most units has an electric solenoid on propane output for shut down when detector is off.

First off, not sure about any in-line shut offs with your unit, that would have to come from an owner. If all LP systems arn't getting gas, I'd start with checking the tank level. If your stove has a spark igniter, just use a match to try and light a burner.

Not sure how confident you are around LP, but there is a blow off valve you can check to see if you have gas in the tank, or just get it filled and record the gallons. That way you will know if it was empty, assuming you have the capacity spec.

Fonzie, you are AWESOME!! That did the trick. I am a novice and never thought to check the LP/CO detector since is on ground level. That did the trick, everything works. You guys on this site are rock stars...I had an answer and STRESS reliever within minutes. Can't thank you enough.
