Miramar gas grill hook up

Hi all,
We are on our maidend voyage with our 2016 Miramar. We've tried using the attached propane line for the gas grill. It has a quick connect site on the bus. There is no gas to the grill. Not seeing any on/off switch for the connection. I'm sure this is an oh duh moment but I can't figure it out.

Thanks for your help.

Our Challenger has a shut off valve just behind the quick connect where you would hook the grill line to. If you aren't paying attention you would miss it. Ours is back behind the RV paneling at the bottom and it is not visible when cut off. There is also a valve at the propane tank itself for the entire propane system but I'm assuming you checked that one. I would reach your hand back behind there and see if you feel the lever.

There is a ball valve at the female quick disconnect on your coach, turn the handle in line with the coupler which is the on position. The hose connecting the coach is long and it takes a little bit to purge the air from the line before the grill will light. I usually turn remove the grates, turn on the gas valve at the coach and grill, hold a long lit butane lighter by the burner and wait. If you use just the piezo lighter you will wear out your finger before you get gas! Be careful because if you let the gas build up you will be rewarded with a huge flame and a thump when it finally does light. Again, takes a while to purge the line of air.

I knew it was going to be a 'well duh' moment. Husband thought it was a bracket.
Thank you very much! We are in business.

Happy trails to you!
