    I think it is 70mm but should be on the instructions that you got with it, or on the website.

    I'm having GasIt fitted this week and couldn't find any fitting instructions on their website.
    Could anyone post a link please?
    Regards

    thanks for all your replys found the gaslow instructions one question is it ok to put external fill point going into gas locker instructions say put it low down but seems to me it will be hard work bending down to the side skirt aprrox 1ft off the floor ,seems easier to have it higher up and go straight into gas locker as it is vented so any lost gas will escape through the floor, what height have you put your filler at ?

    The pump hose is quite bulky. I think you will find that in use lower is easier

    I fitted a bracket on inside of gas locker for mounting the fitting. Thereby doing away with cutting a hole in the MH panel. Also, if I decide to swap the MH, I can remove the system and refit in the new vehicle.

    horshamjack how high is your fill point from the floor just it looks quite high is it a good height for the gas gun ,and can you tell me how is the body off the fill point secured to the side off your motorhome pic off back would be good as i cnt see how you secure the bacl as my side walls are about 400mm thick and outer partoff fill point will not connect to the front part without very long screws

    Only an observation, but putting the fill pipe through the garage is not good practice.
    High pressure hoses should be situated externally to the vehicle interior unless routed through externally vented ducting.
    This is an LPGA standard.

    Looks more like a gas locker than a garage to me!
