I have a extend-a-flow hooked to the hogh pressure side the the propane tank in the motorcoach-- camping world did the installation-- but when I test ed the grill out no propane will come out of the burners it does not light.
Is the ixten-a-astay on the wrong side of the main tank regulator? I can send pictures.

I've had this issue a few times. Complete cleaning of the under side of the burner and all components of the ignition system fixes it every time. The slightest bit of carbon build up is the probable cause. I would suggest cleaning the contact with 400 grit or higher emory cloth. This will remove any contamination from the ignitor,
Couple things could be happening here. If you do exchanges, have you used more than one different propane tank since you've had this issue? This eliminates the possibility of a low tank pressure and a faulty tank connection.
Next you need to look over the burners and the propane flow tubing. Spiders LOVE the sweet smell of propane and make their webbing inside the piping that get's the propane up to the burners. At your flow valves/On/Off knobs you'll notice that the propane shoots from the valves into a pipe with an air gap to gain oxygen. Look in there to see if there's any webs. Also should be a gap were that piping meets the burners, so you need to look there too. Depending on the age of the grill, you need to look the burners over. Corrosion & rust can cause the flame/propane holes in the burners themselves to cake up and close up causing much less flaming/heating opportunity. Also depending how much you've used it, it could be grease/dripping/sauce caked up over them too so they may need to be detailed/cleaned. It's not a pretty job, but grill maintenance that should be done every spring. When the burners get caked is when it's really fun and you need to remove them and clean out the holes with toothpicks. Jenn Air makes quality products, but being a BBQ and outdoors, it's just as vulnerable as any other to elemental and use issues.
One last thing to check, some regulators (the disk shaped part right where the hose attaches to the tank) have another air mixture intake there with a screen on one side. Make sure there's no water in it and the opening is face down if you have one like that. Otherwise it's restricting the flow of the propane. I haven't seen one of these in a while, but they're still out there so check it too.
the office that is open on the bottom of the burner sound like a spider has taken home to.. the hole.... This happened to mine. a small pipe cleaner or wire will break it up...try that. also did you feel the top of the tank regulator and see if it has froze. try turning the tank upside down and turn the unit on.... this may also help by forcing the spider debris out.
Ho cold waas it out? remember that when its cold out the presswure of the propane tanks are real low and you have to warm them for the pressure to go up. if your by your car then you can place them inside with the heater going till they warm up ofr now worm them up inside first. good luck
Most propane problems are due to a new valve on the top of the tank. It is designed to only allow a minimal flow until the line is pressured. This prevents fire flair up from broken or leaking hoses. Always turn the bottle on and wait before trying to light a burner. If the burner is on first, the propane will never come out at full flow or if you have a leak in the system, it won't pressurize sufficiently to allow full flow out of the bottle. There is never "air" in the tank.
I just read this online and it worked for me. Hope you have similar luck.
Newer propane tanks contain a self regulating feature that will automatically slow down the flow of fuel if it thinks it's too high. This can be solved by turning the tank valve off completely and disconnecting it. Open the control valves (on the grill control panel) and ten close them. Reconnect the fuel tank and slowly turn on the valve. Now light the grill to see if that fixes it.
