Three years and counting, 30 years a tent tower.
Two things come to mind but may not be applicable to gas low. (1) Does your system have an auto collision shut off? That can be tripped during a refill. (2) Some Truma regulators were prone to oiling up and restricting the gas flow or shutting it off altogether. Had to replace the regulator on our old trailer tent because of this when regulator was less than a year old.

A long time now
On my previous van there was a button to heat the gas regulator and valve arrangements on my gaslow system obviously for winter use in snow or freezing conditions Bill so they must freeze up I guess it was maybe minus 4 last night

While Propane doesn't freeze until minus 40c , in cold weather and with a high take-off , the regulator can freeze internally, they can collect moisture inside and it is that freezes.. I've seen this happen on LPG fork-lift trucks in winter .. that is the reason some Truma regulators have heaters.

If you have heated it and the problem still persists then it is probably a faulty regulator
