    Hi all,

    My RV has a gas bbq point and I need to know what connector I need.

    Attached are some piccies.

    In addition I can tell you that the point is connected after the domestic gas tank regulator and is therefore low pressure.

    It appears to have three sprung ball bearing retaining balls and no thread.

    Does anyone know what connector I need to put on the end of my cadac gas hose?

    And where to get one?

    Thanks

    Bryan

    Hi Bryan have just had a look in the RV 2008 catalogue given to me by Steve at Mobile RV Maintenance. There are some hoses that appear to have the male connector end that might fit your socket. I cannot see these close enough to be certain but you could give him a ring or try one of the other RV parts suppliers in the UK who I reckon would know what you need

    Yes, the coupling shuts off when you disconnect the male fitting.

    If you cannot find the correct male connector it may be easier to find a new complete coupling ..

    Try googling .. Quick Connect LPG fitting

    Hi Brian

    I have a spare male connector, i will bring it to Peterbro, but this was fitted in uk so may not fit but will bring it to try, these coupling work exactly the same as quick release airline couplings that you get on compressors etc.

    Cheers
    Mick

    These quick release fittings are notorious for leaking, we use them all the time in the garage (different size) and only for air, but leak they all do after a very short time from new
    UK legal?? check with Dunc
    But then again I sell the "proper ones" so I would say that wouldn't I:Doh:

    Good point Geo

    Quick release couplings for compressed air shouldn't be used for LPG. only use ones that are sold for LPG duty.

    I would also replace the female, buy as a pair, then there is no change of the seal leaking or a mismatch.
