Is your regulator adjustable or just the tank?

On my setup, the lp tank has to be turned on only when the adjustable regulator is in the off position. If the lp tank is opened while the regulator is on, the flow is greatly reduced. It has to due with the reg building up internal pressure. I have the same issue on my BBQ grill.

I have the higher flow acme nut and a two stage regulator coming in the next couple days. I will test it when they arrive.

You're describing the same ACME nut excess flow preventor syndrome...

Cheers!
