    Hi All,

    I have a dilemma.

    Replace the long "torpedo" shaped LPG tank that feeds all the appliances (Warm Air/Hot Water/Oven and Fridge) or go down the Gaslow route.

    The Gaslow's would be arranged as a pair.

    Can you get level meters (remote) for them ?Does the t connector have to have a non-return valve in it?Do they do an auto changeover?

    Many thanks for any Pros and Cons you might have.:thumb:

    Steve.

    Replace the tank would be cheaper I would think even though I have a vested interest being a Gaslow stockist:cry:

    Cheers Peter...But would it be my best option?Are there benefits going the gaslow route?I was thinking of removing the on-board genny and utilising the space for the bottles.

    A 40 litre vapour tank is approx £250 +vat and del?

    Do american RV's require a different gas pressure Reg?

    hi, its usually possible to fit any type of regulator to the tank. look on your cooker or something there is probably a sticker stating the working pressure. i prefer to fill my own bottles .cant see the cost of gaslow to be an advantage.you would still need the correct regulator to use them. alan

    Cheers Alan.

    Looks like it'll be a replacement under the chassis then.

    I would proberbly go down the under slung tank, (can you not fit something a little bigger say 60 ltr - Gaslow would give 44ltr)

    I had the same dilema and went the other way and have had problems with the gaslow leaking as a result of vibrating whilst driving.

    The other advantage of a vapour tank is you will free up space for storage

    Cheers Blisters...

    Didn't realise there could be problems with the Gaslows.

    Do you disconnect yours to fill?

    I was looking for a "permanently" plumbed is solution with them.

    My next project is to add either a permanent LPG tank or a pair of Gaslows. The advantage I can see with the latter is being able to transfer them easily to a new mobee when the time comes.
