The first thing to check is whether or not there are inline valves in your propane lines to shut off the various branches to appliances (there should be) and whether those valves are open to the appliances still installed (and closed for the branch to the heater you removed.) These should be visible under the trailer.

Greetings susans69!

You are likely to find that each LP appliance on your Argosy has its own fuel control valve. On the Argosys that I have seen, there will be a valve below the locations of the furnace and water heater. There will likely be a valve for the refrigerator as well, but I am not certain whether it will be outside below the refrigerator location or inside of the exterior access compartment. The range has individual valves for the pilot light as well as the burners themselves . . . . certain models of the ovens also had fuel supply valves as well (the stovetop valves are located below the surface - - the rangetop should just lift up) . . . if the oven has a separate valve, it can be found either near those for the stovetop or might be near the oven burner or below the entire range itself. Finding all of these valves can be a real headache.

Good luck with your investigation!


P.S.: You might find that the exterior valves will be easier to operate if you give them a light spray of PB Blaster . . . the valves may be well corroded if the coach has sat for any extended period of time and the PB Blaster should be of assistance in freeing them up.
