Default Propane not working

Hi. We have a Coachman Beyond and we have no propane for stove or furnace. The tank has been recently filled, the turn off/on toggle switch is in the on position. It all worked fine a month ago. I have checked for visibly loose wires. Any thing else I could try?

Thanks.

Jeff

The on-off toggle is connected to a relay that opens/closes a valve. If that switch or related wiring is borked, the relay will hold the propane valve closed.

On mine, when I toggle the switch, I can her a distinct 'doink' as the relay opens the propane valve.

The circuit feeding the relay is fused separately.

Thanks for the reply. My toggle switch makes a click sound. I can not remember any other sound. I never really paid attention to the sound though.

The relay is fused separate you mention. I take it it fused somewhere other than the mains circuit panel?

Thanks again for the info.

what year is the coach? and you said the switch makes a sound, is the propane solenoid clicking open?
The newer units got rid of the propane solenoid safety You can bypass the solenoid to verify if it is causing your issues, or maybe your pressure regulator either thinks there was a leak and shut down or the pressure regulator is malfunctioning.
shut the gas off whack the regulator a couple of times, then turn it on real slow.
