I experienced a similar condition last year, but with my charcoal.
Where I buy my parts for maintenance of our caravan, the technician explained to me ...
The new propane tanks are rendered very safe.
Is, that when there is a very rapid gas outlet there is a valve within the reservoir that partially blocks the gas outlet to prevent a disaster in case a hose breaks.
For my charcoal gas, there is 10 feet of pipe, between the latter and the tank.
He explained that the new tank, open the valve in two stages.
Open it a little, we can hear the sound of the gas that is spreading in the system.
After some seconds, the valve can be opened to the maximum ...
We had this condition, especially because of the charcoal hose is connected directly to the tank and the regulator is attached to the charcoal ...
As the regulator for the trailer is located near the tank, I do not think you would have this condition, unless it is defective and lets too much gas ...?
If it helps you get a good night warm ...
Have a good night,
