My first thought too. Fortunately an easy fix.
Also moisture can form in propane lines, so once in a while you have to go to the low point (under the belly pan) and open and drain the line. You can even hear the line bubbling if you're outside with the stove top or water heater on.
The chimney can also foul with black oily soot, which does need to be brushed out every once in a while.
I let professionals work on anything to do with propane, and most electrical problems. That said, I'd call around to local propane companies and see if they repair propane appliances - you can pull the trailer to the propane yard, and have them check the whole system stem to stern in about one hour. (probably less expensive than CW or most RV techs too.)
I full time too. We put much more wear and tear on our appliances than most people. After 5 years you're due for a complete propane system check. Get everything back to "like new" condition and you'll be good for another 5 years.
Question. How is your stovetop doing? Slow to light, week flame - that's either not enough pressure or moisture in the lines - because it affects more than one appliance.
