Propane Flow

Hello. I recently purchased a 2019 Basecamp X. My wife and I took it out for the first time and now there is no propane flowing to any of the appliances (Truma, stove, or fridge). I’m getting a gas pressure regulator fault on the Truma. I have turned off the LPG bottles, unscrewed the auto regulator. Tried bleeding the lines. Nothing is working. Any help or suggestions would be awesome!

Check you have propane in the bottles. Remove the propane lines coming from the regulator to the trailer. Turn on the propane bottles slowly. If you have no propane coming out of the regulator you have a regulator proplem.

Awesome! Thank you. I’ll try that today and let you all know.

The regulator has a feature that prevents flow if the downstream line is leaking excessively. It sometimes trips. There are lots of threads about this. Sometimes they can be tricky to get the regulator to reset.

If the advice given does not work, sometimes it helps to shut the tanks and remove the tank connections and use a small rod to bleed off any remaining pressure. Then follow the advice given again.

No...that will not determine 'flow'.
You may have a stuck OPD valve.
Turn the cylinder off.
Remove, turn it upside down, then roll it slowly on the ground, reinstall and try it.

"OPD Valve Design
OPD valve looking at connection
The design of the OPD valve is such that turning the cylinder service valve handwheel will not produce any effect if the cylinder is not hooked up to an appliance. In other words, a connection must be made between the appliance hose end and the cylinders service valve. The inside of the OPD valve is engineered to only allow propane in or out if the internal valve is actuated by being depressed. This OPD valve feature adds additional safety in case the handwheel is turned, opening the valve. For this reason, OPD equipped cylinders will not allow gas out of the cylinder when opened. The same is true for industrial forklift cylinders."

If that doesn't work you may have a regulator problem.

Good luck...👍

I was wondering if that might not be the case.

Sometimes the problem is the pigtail coming from the regulator to the tank. Had that problem. Tank was full, no gas coming from the tank. I replaced the pig tail (which I had just purchased new) with another and found that the gas started flowing again. Problem was a defective pigtail.

Update: I replaced both pigtails and regulator and I have great propane flow. The pigtails were brittle. I think someone used armor all on them before I got it. I’m convinced it was the regulator! Thank for everyone’s help!
