Customer Question

oach house 241XLDT and the propane system functioned normally until had to have R&R of the drivers door, and the remote door key system, so Mercedes did the keys, but had to remove the 2 large coach batteries, from under the hood, part of the dash , and the body shop did the R&R of the drivers door.

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Check to see if the LP detector is off. That cuts off the LP flow. And when you disconnect the batteries, the disconnect solenoid reverts to the "store" position and that would shut the power off. Check those and get back to me. All follow ups are included in our fee.
