Propane

I have no propane to anything/ Tank is 3/4 full. I believe there is safety sw/valve at the tank. Is it fused or were does this wire go / can not trace. The propane safety in coach is OK. (Green)

Have you ever had your propane working or is this the first time using it?
Is the main valve open at your tank?
Do you have an electric solenoid valve at the tank? It should feel warm means it has power and open.
Are you in a very cold area right now?
What does the actual propane tank gauge say?

Let us know what you find.

Gave In

I will do most anything, but gas scares me. Tried all the simple things but no luck. Have a RV guy coming tomorrow (Monday). Will advise.

Great. I understand leaving it to the experts who will find a problem.
I suspect you will find a leaking valve or pinched propane line that is leaking.
I would just turn the tank valve off until the leak or the bad valve is found.

On my Berkshire there is a inline fuse in the coach battery compartment. The shut off by law has to be connected directly to the batteries. If you look at the shut off in the LP compartment you can see what color wire is used. Make sure you look back on the wire as it is spliced in. Then go to the battery compartment and you will see that wire with an inline fuse. Check that. Also have you had a issue with the CO/LP detector in inside the Moho? This detector is what shuts off the LP in case of a leak. Are the lights on the detector? One other thing to check. On the shut off outside on the LP tank there is a shiny button on the shut off. If it has power it will be warm.

Thank u

I could not find the fuse by the battery/ I'm betting that is it. Stay tuned for "humble pie". I have resigned my self to having all propane systems checked. As I said / I hate gas ! I will be leaving on a one year adventure in December. Everything else in coach has been either redone or checked out. I figure cheap "insurance". Thanks to all

This is what my fuse looks like. I was wrong and I apologize. The fuse is in the inverter compartment. Click image for larger version
