Longhorn,

Sounds like you have an air pocket in your propane line . Run your stove for a minute or so until it lights and stays lit. Then try your other appliances. It may take a few tries to light them but they will ignite once the air is purged.

Air pocket?

Why would our water heater pilot be lit the water heater working and absolutely nothing else with gas work?

Lewster is right. But purging the air pocket depends on which side of your Airstream the refrigerator is on. On mine, the cooktop & furnace are on one side while the refigerator, oven, and water heater are on the other.

If an air bubble was suspected in my setup, I would start with getting the water heater to light as it easier to get to with a propane match than the oven or refirgerator.

Is it at all possible that any of the in line valves may have gotten closed? Thats the kind of thing that catches me all the time

No closed lines

All the lines are open. But thanks for the tip. I have done silly things like that before.

The refrigerator is the only thing on the curb side. The heater, the water heater and the stove are on the street side.

Thanks.
