    I use one of these pushed into the end of the orange gas pipe and fixed with a clip.

    Ebay ref. 221811786612

    Unfortunately, I can't cut & paste the image - sorry

    I'm with Andy. Looks like a Bullfinch point.

    Sandra, it is a Bullfinch connection as per Andy. We've got the same on our AT.
    If you need one desperately I'm pretty sure Caravan Shop does them but better phone (01413395888) Neil first to confirm.

    I use an inline quick release connector too myself
    It saves getting a spanner out all the while to remove the hose for bagging up.

    I would like to buy the water version of this plug as we have the socket installed on the van but it was not available when we bought the van S/H. Handy to draw off water outside to save getting in van or washing sand off feet etc

    Bought one yesterday when we were passing Knowepark. Looks like it will be handy to get an inline connector too. The caravan shop will come in handy.
