OP: Did you get your LP gas working again just by flipping that outside emergency switch to "on?"
My 2004 Itasca Horizon Emergency Switch is not working, but I do have propane to my heater and stove; and I think my Emergency Shutoff Solenoid is stuck open.
Note: My LP Detector was located on the floor (mounted on the side of the sink cabinet) but it is not powered-up. I.e., the LP detector is disconnected. I now use a more modern LP detector.
Just the same, I don't believe the LP Detector has the ability to turn off the emergency LP switch? And I don't think it can according to the wire diagram above. ...Can someone verify the LP Detector can only make noise when it detects LP gas?
I have not checked for voltage to my LP Emergency Shutoff switch or to the solenoid. However, if the power is off, wouldn't that mean the solenoid would close? Isn't this solenoid valve normally closed with out power?
...In my case my LP gas is always "on" in my RV and I want the ability to shut the switch inside my RV, as well as outside my RV, "off."
So what would you recommend:
A) Check power?
B) Wrap on the solenoid valve with a hammer (lightly) to free it up?
C) And if I have to replace the solenoid, do I have to drain the LP tank, or can I just replace the electrical top half of the solenoid switch?
Please post your answers below and in this new thread I opened, because my solenoid shut off valve is stuck open or it's not working like it should.
BTW. I discovered by only by chance. I was installing a t-fitting before my RV Tank Regulator and the hose I was replacing goes to that electric solenoid tank valve the Emergency Switch controls.
