Thanks Brian, but the trailer is only one year old. At first light of day we will go out and try the new gas detector.

I'm ready to go, just have to light a fire under husband......just not outside by the gas leak!!

Could be a fitting or a hose or the regulator itself.
Good luck!
You should not smell LP around your trailer!

Not yet Fonzie. We stopped in Champaign, Illinois and I could smell it coming through the bunkend. We closed up and the campground owner got us a hotel room. He called a repair man and he says he will come out this afternoon.

When I used the gas detector the odor was the strongest at the connection. We are heading back there in about an hour, hopefully the trailer is still standing!

The owner says no charge for last night and he has saved the spot for tonight.


p.s. The campground is D & W Campground in Champaign, Illinois
