Why cant I get fuel pressure? Well this one had me running around everywhere! Boy, was I wrong, but only half wrong. Typically that means the electrode is bad and the kit does come with it.
Well this led me down a path of replacing the gas valve in hopes that it was the valve that was causing the low pressure. I did keep the old one just in case. This is a good thing to do anyways when you replace things that may or may not be still in working order. The last thing I replaced was the propane regulator. Pretty inexpensive so I figured, why not?
In a final crazy attempt, I unhooked the propane lines and blew compressed air through them all. Takes only a few seconds to clear the lines. Lots of oil came out by-product of propane and POP, all was cleared out. Nice, clean and blue flame. This past weekend I got to use it for the first time taking a shower and it works beautifully!
So, in conclusion, always listen to your significant other when she says there is probably an animal stuck in the lines. I really hope this helps someone and saves them some money along the way.
Learn from my silly mistakes and enjoy your RV!
