and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

Have you removed the hose off the grill to see if it is getting a good flow of gas! the hose is the only other thing that would restrict gas flow.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Just now did: Gas is flowing, however, how much pressure should I feel? I can stop the flow with my thumb over the end and the tank turned all the way on.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 9 months ago.

your not going to have a lot of pressure after the regulator.

Just make sure the line is clear something as simple as a spider web will restrict the gas flow in the hose.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I should then go from where the hose connects to the feed tubes to the burners with a bore brush or something to maybe swab out the line?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 9 months ago.

a brush or compressed air will work I use a trombone cleaner it is flexible like a bore snake.
