    Hi, does anybody know if there are longer stainless steel hoses then 750mm to connect to a propane bottle. The idea I was thinking is we have calor light bottles , but for the same price you can get a 13kg bottle. If we had a longer hose we could stand the bottle on the ground outside the van and use it that way for when we are camped for a longer period. Cheers:Smile:

    No need just use one of these

    The Gaslow Reserve Cylinder Connection Hose enables the connection of a reserve cylinder to the Gaslow filler point.
    Perfect if you are on site and don't want to move your caravan to find a filling station.
    The hose screws into the internal thread on the Gaslow Fill Kit.
    The other end of the hose connects directly to any 21.8LH cylinders or our range of Gaslow 21.8LH Adapters, so you can connect to all European cylinders.
    The gas will be drawn from the reserve cylinder, through one of the refillable cylinders to the regulator.
    Note that it will not transfer liquid gas into the refillable cylinder, so gas from this cylinder will only be used if the refillable is empty.

    EDIT I bet you don't have refillables :Doh:

    or fit an external bbq point and make up a connector hose with a suitable regulator one end and a bbq plug the other. very simple and no locker door being left part open in bad weather. just fit a suitable regulator for whichever cylinder you choose whether uk calor or spanish etc

    We was wondering about the locker door and how to keep it shut a BBQ connection makes more sense. :thumb:

    You could just drill a hole in the locker floor and fit a bush to pass the hose through.
