Propane

We have a full tank but our fridge, grill and stove aren't getting any propane. We have a Rockwood 2716g.

Turn the gas off at the tanks. Select one tank by turning your selector valve on the regulator. S L O W L Y open the gas valve. Go inside and using a gas match try lighting one stove top burner. It can take up to a minute for the gas to purge the air out of the system. Once it is burning, you will be able to light the refer off.

Worked like a charm. Thanks

Any time you turn on propane in a new system or after changing tanks, the pressure in the lines in the RV will be zero. Turning on the tank quickly allows a rush of propane into the lines until the pressure builds. The free flow protector built into the tanks thinks this is a free flow situation and shuts off the propane. Using the procedure above will reset the free flow preventer.
