|RV Propane tank would not refill||RICARDO RIOSTIRADO||1-6-09|
|I took my 1986 Coachman RV to a propane company to have my tank refill but they were unable to fill the tank. The tank is empty, completely empty but they could not pump any propane in the tank, what can be the problem?? If any one knows please help me out.|

I had the same problem with my 1987 Pacearrow 2 years ago. I found out that the old valve system has a button on the bottom that needs to be held up in order to fill the tank. I took a large pair of Channel Locks held the button in place so they could fill the tank. This was only a temporary fix. It will need to be replaced. Also most people filling the systems are young now and dont know about the old system.
I eventually went online and ordered a new valve. When the tank was empty I replaced it myself. It was very easy.

|? This can be due to the valve freezing during fill....is the gas going in o so slowly, like 2 cents at a time? Try dumping a BBQ tank in with an open cheater hose....hold the BBQ tank up high and upside down, works no probs then....watch u don't burn yourself when undoing a pressurized hose like that. |
My Sunflyer Itasca has done this twice now. This only occurs when you completely drain the tank, always leave some propane in or the filling will freeze the line due to some residual water inside. Even squeezing some propane in, say a gallon if you can, then drive around for a while and return usually works.
