Exterior stove won't work

I have a 2013 Kodiak 284BHSL. The exterior stove has never been used. I tried using it last weekend and could not get it to light. I could not hear or smell any gas. I could not find a valve to turn on to allow propane to get to the stove either, if there even is one? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

One of two things come to mind, there is a valve up in the belly pan that is not turned on or they didn't connect it at the factory.

Hmmmm.... I have no problems like that with our 2012. When you connect the hose to the trailer, are you locking it in with the little locking lever after it snaps into the connection? That's what lets the gas thru...

Thanks for the responses.
Dave, I'm referring to the outside stove that is built in to the camper, from what I can see the hose runs from the stove all the way to the front of trailer where the propane tanks are. Are you talking about the exterior connection that allows you to hook up to a grill or light etc..?

Maybe there is a valve I'm not seeing or something got in the line that is restricting the flow. I think I can access the back of the stove by going under the bunk beds. I'll post when I figure out the issue, probably something simple.

On our outside stove it is not permanently connected to the gas line. We have to pull the stove out of the drawer and connect the hose from the stove to the gas outlet under the trailer before it will work. Something about the rubber line leaking in the closed space is what the PDI guy told us. I bet yours is the same way. Feel around behind the stove in the back and I think you will find a flexible line with a quick disconnect fitting on it.

Yeah, this is what I meant. Our hose has to be connected to the outlet under the trailer when the stove is pulled out.

Thanks, that was the issue. My wife was able to get her hand back under the drawer and grab the hose. Once attached the stove worked great!
