We had a similar problem years ago with one of our former units, and it turned out the regular was mounted crooked. Repair man came out, poped the bottom screw out, leveled it up, put the screw back in, and we were back in bussiness.

There is no shortcut to bypass a bad regulator IMO. I thought the dealer sent you off with all systems working at the get go? A small plug in electric heater or two are good to have on hand for propane emergencies, but obviously you need electric.

Glad you are on the road again!

You can buy a cheap regulator at WalMart or Home Depot to get yourself out of a tight spot should this happen again.

Brevi tempore!
The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......

Suggest that you have a propane pressure gauge (manometer) installed. Mine is installed using a "T" in the gas line to the refrigerator. That way you can tell if the regulator needs adjusting.
