2012 Thor Palazzo

I canít fill the propane tank on my 2013 Thor Palazzo, the needle on the gauge is bottomed out on empty and the gauges inside the coach donít get a reading and I know thereís some gas in it because my stove and my heat work can anybody make any suggestions as to what may be the problem Iíve had tried having it filled at two different places and they canít get gas to go in the tank

is it a 2012 or a 2013?

not that it really matters, but I was just curious if they actually MADE a 2012 model...

sounds like you have something blocking your inlet valve on the tank... I'm not a professional on propane since we've only filled ours once in 3 1/2 years and over 80,000 miles, and it didn't seem to be any problem. Could the folks who tried to fill it not give you some kind of clue, since they do this type of thing every day??

Propane Fill

Best guess is the sensor in the tank is stuck. Inside the tank is a mechanical lever that senses the amount of liquid in the tank. If it gets stuck, you gauge will remain at whatever point it got stuck. Empty, half full, whatever. The bad news is the sensor mechanism also tells the inlet valve when it can receive additional liquid. My guess is the gauge is stuck in the Empty position, but the inlet sensor is not operating correctly, mostly likely because the other portion of the sensor is stuck.

To remedy, you must drain the tank. Remove the inlet valve, and on the back-end of that is the fill sensor(basically a floating arm to read the amount of liquid). I would not attempt a DIY unless you are comfortable working with propane. Any reputable propane dealer can fix this in about 30 minutes once the tank is empty. Also, many dealers can reclaim your propane so you are not wasting 50 gallons of fuel.

Good luck.

Thank you Foghorn I did a little research and I am sure you are right. I just going to let the tank go empty and remove the fill valve and go from there. I’m going to look into places that carry the float and/or the fill valve

propane tank are not to be taken lightly, take it to a professional welding gas store and they could fix it or replace it. better than wasting time and a cheap fix
