    The gas regulator on my Hymer has a screw on type connection (pic 1+2) ) Would it be ok to change to this one (pic 3).

    they both seem to say 37mb so I would say yes:BigGrin:

    assuming of course it has the same fittings ie; left hand thread to cylinder

    the bp lite gas cylinder I have does not have a threaded connection. Pic no 3 is the regulator that fits it. There was no gas bottle with the MH when I got it.

    Hi, the difference is one is 1 kg per hour and the new one is 1.5 kg per hour, saying that the one on our van is 1.5 so I would say it would be OK. :Smile: Bob.

    they are both set to regulate to 37mbar so yes, now I understand Shirl you have a bp lite and the reg = CLIP ON fits that so yes ok.

    Regulator

    How old is it (the new one) because it should be replaced at ten years old anyway?
