Hi my name is Robert...

If you have an LP detector make sure it is turned ON, go to the main valve on the tank and shut the valve, slowly open it back up, sometimes if that valve is opened to fast the regulator can lock up and you might not get the proper pressures. What I would also do is have the LP pressure checked, it needs to be at 11" of water column and a RV shop that has a manometer can test the pressure and do a leak down test to see if you have a leak in the system. Try and get the stove going if you can before starting the generator, that will help equalize the lines. Hope this helps some, IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert
