    Reading a thread on Facebook about a guy who may/may not have a faulty regulator (Truma) on his van.
    It lead me to do a bit of a search and in another story I found someone similar, low pressure and they thought it was the Regulator. The guy unscrewed the hose from the regulator coming from the bottle to check if he had gas coming through.. (At this point I think he had put out his Cigarette !!!)
    NOTHING, NO GAS....

    And the explanation....
    Hoses are either straight through or have a safety valve fitted.
    A coloured label on the hose indicates what type it is..

    YELLOW LABEL = Straight through..
    WHITE LABEL = safety valve fitted...

    I NEVER KNEW THAT, so thought I would share the knowledge.. :)

    Yeah, I think mine had some sort of ball bearing arrangement stopping the gas returning to the bottle. (maybe)?
