How long did you wait? The propane pressure is low it takes a good while to force all of the air out.

Depends on the fridge the older ones had a BBQ type lighter and a pilot push button and did not require external electricity if it has lights on the panel then it does need power. But the flame is small so it will be the last thing to see gas pressure I would not even try until I had a stove flame. I use the sniff test don't try to start the stove until I smell propane then shut off the burner until the propane dissipates before lighting.

Yeah, like mainah said, it can take a while for the air to purge out of the gas line.

It takes quite a while to get my fridge going if it’s been sitting. On my T-1700 the refrigerator is at the end of the line. It will fire up with one to three pushes of the piezo button if it was used on gas the previous two to three days. Takes forever after a week or so.

Just replaced the regulator from the bottle and I think the one it came with was for a bbq, the new one is bigger with 2 parts to it , gas came through instantly, just need to fugue out the hot water system and fridge issue

The fridge ticks when hooked to gas and a 12v battery , it has a push button too , would the ignore be broken or the pilot flame broken?

Not sure about yours, but mine has a little window by the igniter button and you can see it sparking when pressing the button. After the fridge starts you can see the blue flame.

Yeah the old one probably was a single stage regulator anything new will be two stage good upgrade. If your stove lights then you can move on The hot water one is easy because you can see what's going on, you'll need a bbq lighter (long nose) turn the knob to pilot push down the red button and hold it there is a hole with a bunch of parts in it including the pilot if you can light it hold the button down for awhile then release the pilot button the little flame should stay on then turn the control to on it should go off with a pretty big good blue flame. Don't leave it on if there is no water in it. Then move on to the fridge some what of the same drill except you don't need the lighter. Push the pilot button in and then the ignitor it should snap look in the tiny window on the left you should see a flash as you push the button after awhile the flame will stay on then release the pilot button and a blue flame should show in the little window.

I have the day off work tomorrow so I'm going to investigate more , there is a red window that I see a flash that might be it , I removed the grill just under the fridge which has all the gas lines etc . I'll have a look into it . I'm really happy everything works in this camper, just a shame I can't find a manuel .
