Unhappy couple of problems with my rockwood 2270

Any help with these problems would be greatly appreciated.
1. Not getting any gas to my stove or heater. Propane tank
is full and works.
2. When camper is level the entry door isn't lined up to the tabs that slide over door, and camper top is not flush against door.
One of the tabs has now stripped out of its hole from the pressure of the camper top pulling away from door.
Hope these questions make sense!

Does the water heater work on propane? Does anything work on propane? You said the gas bottle is full, and works, but is gas getting past the regulator in to the camper? Check the switchover valve and make sure it is pointing to the the known good tank, and not an empty one, or one turned off. Good luck.

The new style propane tank valves are sometimes the culprit. Try turning the gas bottle valve off, and then slowly opening it to it's full open setting. There is a safety check valve inside that sometimes will close if the tank is tilted when on. Hope this helps! Randy

At this point you may be wishing to take a hammer to something.
Well, that may not be exactly a bad thing.

I had a twin tank RV with hoses that led to a single regulator. Very occasionally I would get your lack of flow to appliances problem. The fix, which worked every time, was to give the regulator a couple of raps with a wrench or a hammer. More than a tap, less than a blow.

A real old hand told me that the regulator may catch a tiny piece of grit or a small amount of condensation from inside your tank may freeze if it's cold out. A couple of raps could break it loose.

Silly? Yeah. But, it won't cost you anything to try it.

Im not getting any thing past the regulator. I only have one tank so I dont think I have a switchover valve? I do feel like taking a hammer to something so I am going to try the more than a rap on the regulator. Thanks for your replies, any more help will be appreciated.
