Question about Vacuums
Ok, Lets start at the beginning. First make sure there is propane in the tanks! Gas can leak rom these tanks sometimes at a very small rate and over time they can go empty if there is a loose fitting somewhere. When you turn on the stove is there any air or hissing sounds coming from the burners? Air can get in the lines and when you turn the gas on, you get nothing but air for several seconds till the air bleeds out then you get the gas. Hold a lit match next to the burner and watch to see if there is any movement to the flame on the match, movement would let you know if there is any air coming from the burner, hold it there for a few seconds and see if any gas comes thru and this will then lite the burner. I always have to turn my stove on for a while to get gas thru the lines so the appliances work after the tanks have been filled or after it sits for a while. Once you get gas thru to the stove you can try your heater, this may also take sewveral tries till all the air is purged from the lines so don't get frustrated, sometimes this can take a while! Then the next thing is the water heater, the gas valve on these has a selection for pilot lite, turn the red knob so thet the cut out in the knob lines up with the gas valve and you have to push and hold this down for a minut or longer to get gas to the burner. Once the burner lights hold the pilot knob down for another minute to make sure all the air is out of the system. Once these are done you should be good to go till next time your tank runs dry and has to be filled. If you determine there is gas in the tank but it is not flowing to the appliances, double check all the shut off valves. The tank should have a diagram on the valve to let you know which way it turns for on and off. Do you have a built in tank on this model? If you have the two removable tank set up, make sure the auto switching valve is set correctly and you have it on to the tank that is full. If you still aren't getting gas, try calling an RV dealer and ask them if there is another valve somewhere that might need to be turned on. There migt be a shut off in the line somewhere, but this is not common.
