    I have a 2 x gaslow large bottle system with a fitted fill point in side of vehicle.

    I need to remove bottles to insulate back of storage area. The bottles are both nearly full.

    Do the bottles have a non return type valve on the filler side of things, so that when I undo the connecting hoses I wont lose all my gas?

    Thanks in advance for the replies

    Yes they do. You might lose a little residual from the fill pipe itself

    Yes the bottles have a non return valve and so does the filler inlet. Be prepared for a release of gas when you unscrew the hose it can hold a fair bit of gas at high pressure.

    Don't forget to keep your mouth shut when unscrewing valve's and wear eye protection as well or at least keep your eyes shut ????????????????? as gas will come out at fairly high pressure maybe Regards Garry Flatpackchicken
