Propane grill quit working

Well it only took a month for the propane grill that attaches to the outside to quit working. Of course high winds and cold were on hand, but I had charcoal so we still ate burgers and used the grill to put over the rusted park grill.

Since it uses the quick connects and I own nothing else with these, how can I test that it's the grill and not the line on the RV? I've triple-quadruple checked connections and nothing, it worked great last week...

Well for starters, did you hear gas coming out before you tried lighting it? Was the gas on? Was the cut off on the quick connect turned on? Check the burner tube make sure the vent holes are free and open. Not the holes flames come out of, but the air mixing vent near where the gas passes through the pan of the grill

If you have gas and it is like mine, make sure your piezo igniter connections and itself are good too (or you can try a match).

So the propane tank has an OPD valve. The design of the OPD valve is that turning the cylinder service valve handwheel will not produce any effect if the cylinder is not hooked up to an appliance. Couple of times, on my home grill there was no propane coming out of the tank, even though the tank was full, and properly connected. Turning the valve off at the tank fixed the problem. I once had to disconnect the regulator and screw in back onto the tank, and everything was OK afterwards. I suppose it was a sticky valve. I have since replaced the tank, and no problems since

The quick connect should have a check valve in it take a pen or something like that and press in on the check valve to see if you smell gas. I have had a bad nipple that would not depress the check valve.

I had the same problem. I took the BBQ grille guts completely apart, took a wire brush and scraped every opening. Tested it out before putting it back together and it all worked fine.
