Exterior LPG Port Not working

Unable to get propane flow from exterior LPG Port to grill, with all hoses attached, tanks full, could there be an air block?

Does your grill have a regulator? If so, that's your problem. The flow from an exterior LPG port is already regulated, so having another regulator at the grill chokes down the flow to almost nothing.

Did you turn the leaver on the quick connects to on?

If you have a long hose, it might take some time to purge the air from the line.

My guess is there is a maintenance shutoff valve that is used to protect against leaks for users that don't use the option. But it is only a guess (appliances are meant to have a shutoff valve where they connect to the supply).

This is the position your port valve should be in. If the lever is at a right angle to the valve it's shut off.

If you are connecting to a grill with a regulator on it, you won't get much propane at all because the port is already regulated.

Last - simple question - are your LP tanks open?
