propane no propane

Todays problem, We have a 2006 Dynaquest 260, we love this little bugger, just returned from a month long trip, Half way thru we lost our propane to the ref, AND the hot water heater, now the furnace runs on propane and the tank is full I ASSUME that the regulator is working as the furnace gets gas, we have no propane stove, just hot water,, ref.. furnace. Thoughts??

Just to be clear: How do you know the furnace is getting gas? Is it getting hot and running for more than a minute or two? If not, it may NOT be getting gas.

If you're sure that the furnace is running, your description screams crimped line to me. especially since it was working and then it wasn't.

Do you know plumbing routing wise how the appliances are located in the line?
Is it cylinder > furnace > water heater > fridge?

im confused

if you have propane and some things work - then you just have to see if you turned off a gas valve to that appliance or the gas valve in the stove quit working - just unscrew gas line nut to stove a little and see if gas is present.

Here's a crazy for you. May not apply but I've seen some crazy things in TT's.
Make sure you haven't blown a 12 volt fuse. The furnace won't run on gas & the fridge won't run on gas without the 12 volt hooked up.

-------------------------------------------------------------------Gas lines don't work like that , If you have gas ? and the gas tank valve is open - then all lines are open to the different appliances , fuses don't stop gas from going to each place. ( I would check your furnace again for flame and not just heat blowing - this is summer so make sure you have fire there)

on second thought - if you ran out , and then filled up - I just think you have air in the lines , so just keep trying to start things to get air through
