Turn off the DC, light the stove, does the sound come back?

May or may NOT. The refer uses very little LP while the Stove uses a lot. Doug

OP here
Further info: Noise comes from either compartment, whichever is in service.
Main regulator replaced previously, no change.
Will turn off fridge and check stove this weekend if it happens, it is random both in frequency and intensity.
And yes, the sound stopped immediately after fridge was turned off.

I doubt if it's your fridge. Generally speaking the more use/flow thru a reg. will cause more singing(whine). I would think that your should be able to duplicate the sound using an alternate source of flow as rdhetrick mentioned. Though I've not noticed my reg singing, I do know factually that all natural gas regs sing under use. I may not hear mine 'cause I'm somewhat hearing impair.......well, my wife thinks so anyhow. You can have your pressure checked, or check it yourself for lock-up(no flow) and for flow. Should be real close to 11" water column when flowing. Or you can change it and see/listen if the new one sings to ya.

Update from this past weekend:
Heard a low whine second day in. Shut off fridge, stopped. Lit stove, whine came back. So looks like regulator? That would be 2 bad ones in a row, including original as we bought trailer new.
