Propane problems!

So big question, I come home to my alarm going off in the camper, smells like propane and the connection to the propane is leaking.

Is this a problem with the take or the connection?

This is a 2014 palomino 1251 truck camper and I am hoping you guys might have some ideas but I don't know what to do to start to diagnose this.

Thanks for any and all help! Trying to get out this weekend but can't trust it.

First and foremost, eliminate any sources of ignition. Squirt some dish soap into a cup of water and use a small paint brush to liberally apply it to the gas system plumbing connections - starting at the tank/s. If you can smell it, then the soap solution will bubble when you find the culprit connection. Diagnosis may become challenging if you need to get inside an enclosed underbelly. Good hunting.

Has the tank just been refilled? Even with the New type overfill valves they (Leak?) at times.Most of the time the (Tank/Hose) area is the problem. Youroo!! PS,does your T/Camper have (2)tanks?,if so check the S/Over valve also!
