My WESTFALIA VW Campmobile has a propane stove with a MARSHALL BRASS Low Pressure two stage L.P.G. regulator. The propane cylinder needs servicing: the filler valve is bent and the outage valve does no longer stop the flow of gas. I tried to find a local business that would service the system, but to no avail. I contacted MARHSALL BRASS 4 times by email, but this business simply ignores my request for information. Please advise. Thank you.

Assuming you are referring to the Coleman Campers Grill Stove which is a side by side grill and stove unit than it is a pretty simple set up. All portable Coleman stoves set up basically the same. There should be a arm known as a regulator that came with the stove. The narrow end of this attaches to the right side of the stove and screws in. Then the propane bottle screws into the other larger end. make sure all connections are screwed together tightly.

Its a safety feature of the regulator. The regulator is designed with a pressure release valve. This has happened to me twice: once with a carbon dioxide tank for my kegerator and once on my propane stove. In both cases I left the regulator (designed with a max pressure rating of X psi) attached to a full bottle in the sun. The heat caused the pressure to exceed the limit of the regulator and the release valve popped. A welding supply store may be able to reset/replace the mechanism but in my case I just bought a new regulator for about $15.
it is not safe to use your 'gas'/'propane' stove inside your tent --- it puts off carbon dioxide and you can't smell it or see it and it fills up small spaces very fast and it CAN kill you. only use it outdoors or if you have a exhaust tube that exhausts to the outside.
Please don't try to use this stove without a regulator. It is extremely unsafe, and not worth it. If you can't find a regulator cheap online (I couldnt find one for less than $30) - just buy a new one. You can find a whole new cookstove on sale for $20-30 at most outdoor stores like Big 5, Dicks, Walmart...good luck!
Buy a new one. do not attempt to use this one again. There could be a pin hole in the propane lines or just a small crack. If you can hear it then there's a problem.
However if you really want to fix this one try putting water on the propane lines and then putting on a new tank and opening the valve. DO NOT LIGHT THE STOVE. where there are bubbles there is your leak. When you find it seal it with a Flame retardent sealent or clamp the line. Also I believe Lowe's sells parts that may work. just find out which line is leaking and replace the whole line.
I highly recommend just buying a new one and destroying the old one. DO NOT just throw it away please. Some one out there will grab it and try and use it. They will find out the hard way and maybe get hurt badly themselves or hurt someone else. Just imagine the guy who grabs it and goes camping with his family. Him and his son start it up. the son is right next to the unit. The guy fires it up and boom the son gets burned. Is it just me or would you feel bad if you knew this guy. I have seen it first hand. trust me it sucks. A buddy of mine did this and his son was in hospital for 3 days. he said he will never do that again.
So for safety sake please just buy the new one. don't take unnessecary risks if you don't have too.
Just where the regulator attaches to the burner there is a small nut that may be loose. If you look closely at this and turn the regulator (stove off and hose detached!) you may see the nut hat turns easily. Tighten it and make sure the regulator does not rotate too freely, but still turns to adjust when attached to the hose or the smaller gas cartridge, if using that. Test carefully after this.
