LP Gas issues 2013 Winnie View

I have a 2013 Winnie View Profile. I bought it used in 2014. Have driven it across country twice with no problems. I keep it in climate controlled storage. I put a brand new 2 stage regulator on it last year. This is 1st time out this year. I cannot get the propane to come on and stay on. Turned on gas cook top to bleed lines to no avail. Is this a know issue? I notice there are several recalls for crimped hoses but I do not think that is my problem because when it works it works well, Any advice appreciated.
Thanks

The recall on LP hoses was because the hose material broke down in the presence of LP and or the oil in LP. The result was leaking hoses, weak hoses and gunking up the regulator.

If the hoses were not replaced during the recall your new regulator is probably oil contaminated.

Which regulator are you installing? The Fairview ones have a high failure rate. Look into a MEGR-298

Excellent! Maybe the tanks and lines are FODed with a large amount of oil. Or, moisture...
Moisture in the regulator can freeze and damage it. They can inject alcohol into the system to dry and clean it.

If yo get it working, fire up the genny, fridge, water heater and furnace and let them run for awhile to clear the system. Top it up to dilute any crud in it.

FWIW, we had a regulator fail. They replaced the hoses under recall and the second one immediately failed due to contamination. The third remains functional as it should.


Good luck.

if he did that, he would run out of LP in a few minutes. I had the same problem right out of the gate and had the regulator replaced with a good quality one. I wish they had put a much bigger LP tank under the unit 'View 2017 Mercedes'
