    I serviced my fridge today and all was good.
    However I noticed the date on the pig tail hose connecting my LPG bottles to the regulator
    was date stamped 2009. It is recommended that these be changed every 5 years.
    This got changed as part of the service.........so all is now good and ready for
    our trip to France.

    As part of a garage clearout, I chopped the metal ends off a 2004 Pigtail.
    I have to say that I've either got a very blunt Hacksaw( I haven't) or that 5yr 'rule' is profit creation exercise on behalf of the manufacturers.
