Lift up the top of the stove and look at the gas connection point. See if there's a shut off there. Mine has a gas shut off under the trailer where the gas line goes into the belly pan.

Open the burners up and try to determine if you are getting any air out of them. If the system has been out of service the lines may need to be purged of air. It should take around a minute with a couple of burners open if system has no propane in it.

You could have a regulator problem. Break a fitting feeding the tubing off the regulator and see if you have flow. Just loosen the fitting until you hear of smell the gas. You might try switching tanks also. You will need to check all fittings opened with snoop or a soap and water solution for leaks.

Selector valve

Gosman
If you have 2 tanks, there is probably a selector valve in between the tanks. You should check to see if the arrow on the knob is pointing to the tank that you have the valve open on.

Just to update on my problem.
I redid all the lines to the Stove and still no good.
when i took off the 3' line with regulator @ Tank I replaced a line without regulator all worked fine, so i guess it was too many regulators.

thanks to all.

Jim

I have disconnectd the line under the trailer and it is getting propane I could smell it as well as hear it , but from that point on up to the stove it gets nothing . Also on the same line that branches off to the other side were it feeds the refrig . It is getting propane , I had the frig running .
I also ran air in the line and can not even here it coming out of any of the burners when turned on .

The tank I was useing , I took off and thought may be not enough propane so , I hooked it up to another trailer and in about 2 mins the sove lite.

Do you think the line could be pluged??????? need some help fast . Thanks All George

Plugged or damaged

Either plugged or crushed (crimped) some where. I would disconnect it at both ends and see if I could push a wire thru it. It's either that or pull the stove to see if the line is damaged.

What did you find under the stove lid where the gas line connects?
