Default American Cruiser Propane Valve

I have just purchased a 2000 American Cruiser RE2000X and, for the life of me, I cannot find the valve for turning the propane on/off. There is a valve outside in a hatch that appears to be it, but I cannot get any gas for the stove. The propane tank, according to the electronic gauge, is three-quarters full. Is there another valve somewhere that I've missed? Thanks for your help.

You might have two valves - one manual and one electric. The manual one would on the tank and is turned like the valve on a BBQ propane tank. The electric one will be somewhere on the gas line plumbing and it will be controlled with a switch located somewhere else.

I've read that the propane detectors on some older RV's were wired to an electric shut-off valve on the propane gas line. Look on your propane detector for a reset switch if all other switches on and in the coach have been identified. Newer RV propane detectors aren't wired to electric shut-off valve.

Hi Dorains,
So what did you find. We have a 99 American Cruiser and to the best of my knowledge, on ours the manual valve at the tank is the only valve. There is no mention of any other valve in the owners manual.

Hope you enjoy your American Cruiser as much as we have enjoyed ours!
