Default 1997 Wanderlodge 43' Problems with LPG

I just got a 97 Wanderlodge 43' with 60,000 miles on it. I cant seem to get the propane on. I turn the switch on the outside at the tank on and the main LPG switch will not illuminate. Nothing to the range. Does anyone have any ideas?

theres a switch at the tank?
I think theres one by the fuel fill neck on the street side.
Then under the cabinets in the toe kick area theres a switch on the Co2 alarm,tur it on and it will make all kinds of noise for a few minutes,then you should have propane.

Thanks Randy

Yes the switch is at the fill nozzle for the propane. I will go look for that Co2 switch.

I just checked and found the carbon monoxide detector and the light was green. I tried to test it and it does nothing. All the switches appear to be on but still no light at the main LPG switch in the cabinet

Light?
LPG switch in the cabinet?
where is this switch?
Maybe the light is burned out?

The LPG Main switch is in the fold down drawer with the pure water and waste water levels. I'm wondering if its the main switch at the tank nozzle that is not working.

Mine has a sequence:

Turn the cabinet switch off
Turn the CO monitor off

With propane manual valve open
Turn the CO monitor on, let it settle down as Randy stated
Turn the cabinet switch on
