If you have a rubber hose on the low pressure side of the regulator it could be swollen from exposure to oil. Mine was swollen shut.

I've had oil accumulate in the rubber line directly after the regulator prior to the hard copper line. There is a natural dip in the line where the oil collects.
Might try to drain any residual oil!

Congratulation to the OP for getting things to work!
The advice in the quote above is noteworthy. A regulator is a relatively inexpensive and easy part to replace before you find yourself in BFE. I would not rely on a 25 year old regulator and would replace it at my first opportunity. You will find lots of regulators in Airstream's inventory in JC when you attend Alumapalooza. Take the opportunity to make the switch there. Lots of fellow owners will be glad to lend a hand, tools and/or advice.
