Cannot get gas system to pressure up after leak repair.

I have a Terry 5th wheel with the dual gas tanks and auto switching regulator. I had a gas line breakage that I found and repaired. But now I cannot get the system to pressure up. I move the selector to the tank that I want to be the service tank and turn the gas on real slow. But I hear no gas flow or the indicator doesn't turn to green. And worse yet... No gas to the appliances.

Any ideas out there on what I may be doing wrong?

A basic test: After hooking everything up, and opening both tanks, can you loosen the large knob on the tank connection and hear any gas escaping? Should be a small hiss and should be able to smell propane. If no evidence of gas, then the tank valves are not opening. Might need to take everything down to a full-service propane dealer.
What kind of breakage did you have?
And welcome to 5th Wheel Forums.

Thanks but I was just a bit impatient. The system has now pressured up and everything is working great!
