Truly, in todayís world, we are limited by costs of tools and possibly skill for technical things. The knowledge is free.

Anyway, for less than the cost of diagnosis, I replaced the regulator and pigtails. I have leak tested it.

The water heater fired up with one click of the electronic ignition. Also, the stove now passes propane where it didnít before. Based on how it now runs, I suspect the regulator slowly died and I did not realize it. It used to fire up immediately. Then it fired up after a few tries.....then not at all. Lol.

The repair took about an hour and that was because I was leak testing. Could have done this on the road but the risk vs reward wasnít worth it. I donít want to play with propane with my fellow campers nearby. But at home I can park it 300í from anything and test all I want.
I feel exactly the same way!
I don't think the techs are any smarter than you or I, just more experience!
With all the internet information available today, we can now benefit from their experience for free & with color pictures.

I've watched dealership techs google how to do a repair and go from it, so, we have that same opportunity.

As far as LP regulators, I was reading a post the other day from one of our members saying he carried a spare regulator with him all time. I had never thought of having one in my spare box but one will be here tomorrow. I've had one fail and replacement is simple and straightforward and doesn't take 30 minutes to do...so might as well have one of them too.
