Woke up this morning and noticed that our furance was not working. Checked the lp tank and noticed it had run dry in the middle of the night. Switched to the other tank and it wouldn't work either. Now our stove isn't working. Changed out the regulator, filled the empty lp tank and still no joy. Anyone have any ideas on a possible cause and fix?Edited by: Adamsvr

I had to change out the Auto Changing valve last week on our King of the road. I t was leaking on this 5er today.

I'm not sure why no gas is flowing but I'd try turning off both tanks and relieve the pressure by loosening the lp hoses. Then work the switching valve back and forth a few times and lastly open the tank or tanks. Slowly at first then go ahead and open fully. If there's still no flow try working the switching valve back and forth again. If that doesn't do it, it's time for a new valve.

The only problems I've had with my LP is a leaky regulator on the door side tank and once, when I removed and empty tank, gas was flowing out of the hose. I worked the switching valve back and forth a few times and it stopped. I doubt these components are of a quality we'd expect to have in a 100k rig..

I think my 36RL has a bad automatic change over switch. One tank is empty, the other is full but no gas is getting into the coach. If you have an interruption in the LP flow, do you need to re-start or light a pilot for the refrigerator or will it resume operation once the gas flows?

Ours was bad also. Switched it out with one that has a much larger and clearer red/green indicator for how full the lp tank is.

Do you know the brand and model of the switch you used to replace the bad one?

It's a Marshall Gas Control Regulator - Model 254 Automatic LP Change Over. It also has 605H stamped on it. Got it from Sonny's RV in Casper, WYOMING.Edited by: Adamsvr
