All that as changed, was a new lp bottle? Have you checked the hose and the bottle connection? On the quick coupler on the hose, there should be no gaskets or o'rings. All gasket are in the bottle side. If there are extra gaskets or o'rings on the hose nipple end, the coupler will not make up, and a lack of fuel. The beep may be from lack of fuel pressure from the bottle.

We checked the hoses and stuff. If you disconnect the tank or turn it off you get a no fuel error

Do you have pressure to the regulator?

Keep in mind this is one of those fancy units that is supposed to tell you what is wrong. Yes we have pressure

Let me opt out. I am old school. I know how the lp system works, but not the computer! We have to assume you have unit in neutral and all safetys in place. Sorry.
