Please come back and let us know what you (or they) find when you get it fixed.

Just got off the phone with the shop.. The LP detector was bad and has been replaced. No other issues were found.

propane is really easy to smell if you have a leak ! and also - a bad LP detector didn't cause you to lose your gas though ?

Thanks much for coming back and letting us know what they found. We really do appreciate it when we know what the problem and fix was.

When I went to pick up Chole', they did inform me that they did a pressure test and found no leaks and that my fear of the screws we put in the lock box were unfounded. They were a good distance from that line.

And of course if it acts up again she will be going right back to them.

It could have...
Some LP leak detectors are equipped with a gas shut off valve which is plumbed into the LP system so it can turn off the flow if a leak is detected. I would think the OP had this style.

( I know I should not respond again - However , My point was that " Pinn " ran out of LP gas and thought he had a leak , but no leak ! ) and also - the LP detector , hi tech or not will never be the " cause " of a gas leak

And I shouldn't respond again... however... we do not know what the dealer replaced when he told Pinn he replaced the leak detector. It is very possible to assume they replaced the detector and the accompanying shut-off valve. (if so equipped) Many dealers refer to the interior detector (along with the shut-off valve assembly kit) as a 'LP leak detector.'

He run out of LP gas for some reason. Do we really know why?

Back in the old days, there were actually LP detectors that had the shut-off valve mounted on the detector itself and additional plumbing went from the LP supply to the detector and then to the rest of the rig. I have not seen one of these in many years as I'm sure laws have required the shut-off to be located near the tank to protect all of the plumbing.

I agree, just the interior electronic detector itself wouldn't be the cause of the leak.
