Hi my name is Robert....

IF you have a LP detector make sure it is turned ON, some will trip the flow of LP if it is OFF. Go back to the tank and shut the valve, slowly open it back up sometimes if the valve is opened to fast the regulator can lock up and you might not get the proper pressure. IF you still have no LP check where the hard pipe enters the RV sometimes under the sink and make sure a valve is not shut, normally it would have a red handle. Beyond that I would have a shop test with a manometer to see what the pressure is, could be a bad regulator.... Robert
