    This is our first night in our new to us van. We bought and had fitted a new propane gas bottle. Cooked dinner using the oven and hob with no problem but suddenly have no gas. Gas is switched on inside and at bottle. One minute gas working and next it wasn't. Any ideas what to do? Luckily it's not meant to be cold as we now have no heating as it doesn't work on electric!

    Check the crash sensor has not popped out. It's a green button on the gas regulator
    Press it back in yo reset

    Is there a reset button on your regulator?
    From memory if Truma it is a green button press n hold for 10 seconds.

    Hi Lizi my only thought is that you have been sold a new but empty gas cylinder,if you remove and lift it up with one hand then most likely empty,a full one would require 2 hands.
    Unless your Charles Atlas. HTHs

    Look at the end of the hose from the gas bottle. That unit is the regulator where the button is if Truma.

    are you on a site with electric hook up? most motorhomes have electric heating and water heating so all may not be lost

    it is forecast colder than I would like to have no heating :)

    Failing that, you may have done what I did not so long back. We keep all our cleaning stuff in a small cupboard under the sink. When I got out the Mr Muscle, I accidentally hit one of the isolator valves, and shut off the gas supply. Might want to check those!

    Where it goes into van there is a yellow switch which is in the vertical position on the gas pipe. Cannot see button unless you mean plastic dial showing green and red on top of bottle which we assume indicates how much gas is in it.

    That sounds like an auto switch over system to me, can you take a pic?
