The pilot sequence is designed to run for 45 seconds. It could be that the thermocouple is not triggering the cycle once the pilot is lit. I am having the same problem and intend to replace the thermocouple and then give it another go. The fridge works fine on electric but stopped working on gas last week.

Your fridge should have a switch for propane/electric/automatic. This is usually located above the fridge door & just below the freezer door. When on propane the gas will feed directly to the fridge there us no need to light it! However the propane needs to feed from the large propane tank usually mounted on the tongue of the trailer to the fridge....this takes some time . We usually light our drove first then wait a few minutes & then turn on the fridge. Please know that it takes a few hours 10-12 fir the fridge to cool down to acceptable temps. Now if u do all the above u may have a blockage (mud dauber) in the propane line - which u can usually access thru the fridge access panel on the outside of your trailer. Bees seem to be drawn to the Oder if propane. Make sure prolate tank is shut off! Take a small brush & clean the inside of the propane line & then start from the beginning.
When the switch is set to electric, you should notice the fridge getting colder in a few hours. Again 10-12 hrs before it us acceptable to place food in it.
When the switch is in the auto mode it will automatically switch from electric to propane when you lose electricity for any reason & back to electric is you run out of propane - or shut it off.
Oh one last thing you must have your battery on in order for the fridge to work!
THESE USE SUCH A SMALL AMOUNT OF GAS ITS CRAZY... I REMEMBER STARTING MINE, MY FINGERS WOULD HURT SO BAD AFTER WAITING FOR IT TO GET GOOD FRESH GAS UPTO THE PILOT LIGHT TO STAY LIT.. THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS BLEED THE LINE OF AIR AT THE FRIDGE. OR SIT THERE FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES HOLDING THE START BUTTON.. YOU WILL SEE THE FLAME TURN FOM A KINDA WHITE TO THAT BRIGHT BLUE COLOR . THAT IT ! THAN IT WILL STAY LIT .. IF NOT THAN YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THE BULB IS IN THE FLAMES PATH. I HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YA.. CUZ PARTS CAN BE KINDA HARD TO FIND, AND THERE NOT FUN TO WORK ON .. JAY THE POOL PUMP MOTOR REPAIR GUY IN LONGWOOD FLORIDA
I'm confused. First you listed this as a propane torpedo heater. Second, it's a problem with and All Pro PK115 T Forced Air Kerosene Space Heater. And finally, you say "propane torpedo lights but doesn't stay lit."
Which is it? To really help you, I'll need the correct manufacturer's name & model number. And whether it's propane or kerosene fired?
A bit more info is needed. What model #, and how old is it? In back, does it have a computer board (underneath a green or black plastic cover, appros 4" x 6")? Im guessing that it does, ('cause you get an error message,) Make sure that you have a good 12 volts going to the board at all times, and make sure that the glass fuses on the board are not blown. If that checks out, than its a real good bet the you have a defective board. For Americana models, you're going to need a Dometic board, and for other models, an aftermarket board will usually do. Althoiugh the OEM ones have a better chance of fixing your problem.
