Well then start at your propane bottles, disconnect them (both bottles) and make sure no obstruction. Re-connect and make sure connection is tight so propane bottle security valve gets open, open both propane tanks very very slowly. Go to your stove and purge propane until it lights. If that doesn't work then probably a faulty regulator.....also can tap regulator gently in case in got stuck when trying to switch over??

Looking at the inside of an OPD equipped propane cylinder valve
OPD Valve Design
The design of the OPD valve is such that turning the cylinder service valve handwheel will not produce any effect if the cylinder is not hooked up to an appliance. In other words, a connection must be made between the appliance hose end and the cylinders service valve. The inside of the OPD valve is engineered to only allow propane in or out if the internal valve is actuated by being depressed. This OPD valve feature adds additional safety in case the handwheel is turned, opening the valve. For this reason, OPD equipped cylinders will not allow gas out of the cylinder when opened. The same is true for industrial forklift cylinders. Click the photo of the OPD valve (left) to see a larger and more detailed picture of the of the internal flow valve.
See additional OPD Valve Information

After going over all suggestions I'm still without propane. I found that I have a Quick connect just about 2 foot from the regulator under the trailer. There is nothing from the regulator to this Quick connect. With both gas bottles on I used a small screwdriver and pushed in the center spring valve and has no gas at that point as well. :-(

This might sound like a stupid question but are you certain that the person filled the tanks actually fill the tanks? If they do not do it properly valve can freeze not allowing LP into tank. What is the outside temp.? At low temp. propane will not flow properly.

Turn off both tanks. Disconnect one completely then reconnect it. Wait 5 mins Now turn on the disconnected tank very slowly 1/4 turn wait a minute then open slowly. There is a open valve protection mechanism in the tank. When it senses a sudden high flow rate, it shuts off the gas. It takes a while to reset. Since you ran out, the lines in the trailer were empty and when you turned on the gas, it had no back pressure so the protection mechanism thought you had an open valve. The first 1/4 turn when you open it is most critical. Y
