I'll assume that you toggled the switch on inside the docking station, next to the propane inlet. We have a trilogy and I just flip the switch when I want Propane on. When you flip the switch, you can hear the solenoid turn on. If you can't here the click, you probably are not getting power to either the switch or the solenoid. Sorry, I've never had any problem with this.

We do hear a click so I'm thinking we didn't give it enough time or the dealer didn't fill the tank like they said they did (most likely). The propane indicator does say it's full though. We'll keep trying. Thank you so much.

Just a thought. New tanks come with nitrogen gas in them that has to be purged before filling with propane. Maybe that is what the indicator is sensing.

Mounted tanks like that have a float gauge in them so it senses/reads liquid level. Nitrogen is a vapor it would not read/measure that. Hopefully they (the dealer) properly purged the tank before filling with LP other wise it might cause the relief valve to pop. It would also cause a no flame but I have gas/pressure issue. But the OP isnt getting anything if I remember correctly

Problem Solved. Just in case anyone else has an issue, we called Dynamax/Forest River and got authorization to have our tank inspected at their cost by a mobile LPG technician. Turns out the solenoid was fine and after crawling around under the fiver, the technician finally found a thumbscrew valve that turns the propane on/off. This is a very small valve so was not at all what we were looking for.

Thanks for the follow up. I need to crawl under ours and see if I can find the shutoff. May be good to know in an emergency.

I'm having the same problem but I used mine last year and it worked fine. I also had it filled one time last year and still worked fine. Now this spring, i had it filled and I cannot get any propane out of it. I left the stove top burner on for a long time and nothing happens. The Trilogy has a switch that you toggle up to turn on, so theres not slowly turning it on. My detector is working because the green light is steady on and zI tested it, works fine. I read a lot about the thumb screw by the tank but that is only when the LP has not been used before.
Someone suggested that I blow the lines out with an aircompressure. OK, from where do you blow the line out? Any help from any body would be great.

Blowing out the line will not do any thing if you are not getting gas. If the solinoid is not opening your not getting gas. Fix/verify that works then look for the simply stuff. I would disconnect line after the soliniod then quickly cycle the system if you get gas then your issue is down stream, if you dont you need to check power to soliniod, if you have power then you probably have a bad solinoid.

Good Luck

ps I would suggest if you dont feel comfortable doing this check with an LP serviceman or RV tech

Question No gas, no beans

Last year we had gas, stove worked. This year, no joy. This thread talks a lot about problems but no solutions. I'll keep you posted as I trouble shoot this problem.

Status so far is... I have a full coach tank and backup. I have an operating detector with a green solid light. Listening to the stove, I hear no flow of gas, water heater also no gas.
