Gas problem

I have a 2007 wildwood sport toy hauler with little pressure at the stove. I have changed the regulator and still have poor pressure. I have checked all the lines and they are clear. if I place the short hose in the tank and turn it on still no gas. Do the gas lines have some type of check valve in it? Anyone have any idea what I should try next

Thank you.

most of the new pigtails have a high flow cut off valve if you turn tank on too fast they will engage and cause the problem. You need to just slowly open the tank valve and should work. Could also have a bad pigtail had this happen to mine..

This is what I've had to do before. Close the valve at the tank. Open an appliance valve to release any pressure. Then make sure all appliance valves are turned off. Slowly open the tank valve. That should solve the problem.
If it doesn't, the fitting before the regulator has a valve that detects excess flow (broken hose) and closes to shut off the flow of gas. A propane dealer can replace that fitting for very little money.
Mine went bad a few years ago, and that is how I fixed it.

You could/should also check the gas pressure. A U-tube manometer used to be pretty cheap. You can prolly get a gauge on the internet chaeply now... assuming you have time/knowledge to check and wait.

Oh, and make sure there is plenty of propane in the tank too. I've troubleshot that "problem" before too.
