As I was reading the post I was thinking pigtail. I have replaced several and have had the same symptoms you have posted. We now keep a spare for the next time. Seems to happen after a tank has run out. Glad your warm now.

Can somebody clue me in on the issue that the pigtail fixed? I've only ever had Class C's and never dealt with detachable bottles. Looking at a TT now and trying to get as much info as possible. What happened to make this part fail? This is common enough that people carry spares?

Well I'm not for sure why but the hose has a baffle in it as to only let x amount of pressure out. The cause for its failure is unknown but it was a last ditch effort after having filled both tanks, replacing the regulator and trying all the suggestions by other forum members. I'm thinking it could of been as simple as dirt on the tank coupler at the time of reinstall from being filled getting pushed in the hose at the time of connecting. That is only a thought due to me having fire wood trash in the back of the truck and the tank. I will from here out cover the valve with the cap provided on the tank. That should of been the first clue. If it's their there is a reason. I will from here out us it. Lesson learned.......

Any camping will do. :-)

I have seen when I replaced my bbq tank that I needed to unhook it and reinstall it. Make sure the tank valve is completely closed.

Just for kicks, when it warms up, try the pigtail you removed. It is possible that the pigtail is fine, but by removing and replacing with the tank shut off, you reset the tank protection mechanism. I have had to disconnect, wait and reconnect my tank connection if I trip the protection mechanism by opening the valve too fast into an uncharged line.

I have never had an issue fast cracking the valves open even after full discharge of the tank. Guess I will start opening slower from now on.glad you got it fixed and if you carry a back up regulator I'm guessing you're now going to carry a backup coupler as well

I thought we were out of propane so I took the tanks to Costco for a refill. Still full, it was just an air bubble.
