Went camping a few weeks ago during one of our rare "warm"spells (about mid 80s). Had been driving a couple hours and decided to get the dogs out for a walk. Flipped the refrigerator from battery to propane while I was going to be walking for an hour or two. I could hear the ignitor trying to work, but it never did "catch". Tried a few more times, then just switched back to battery and shortened the walk. Tried the next morning when it was cool and all was fine. A friend just had the same experience with the fridge in her RT 170. Is this due to some sort of vapor lock, or is there something else going on? (propane valve was open and propane tank nearly full) Should we be concerned at this point? We both camp without hookups a lot of the time, and rely on the propane during these times.
I will take a shot at answering your question. Try lighting a burner on the stove to get gas in the lines.
Seconded. A stove burner will quickly purge the lines of air. My water heater is the same way. I just see it more immediately, since it's manual ignition... I have to stand outside with the barbecue lighter stuck up in there a lot longer if I don't purge the line first.
