We had one fitted and I say fitted as I could have done it, but playing with gas I thought need some sort of back up.
We use it all the time when the safari room is up. Pay someone to fit it and give you peace of mind that it is done right.

I don't know where piece of mind I have had two jobs done in the past by so called professionals. Damp check being one van one year old told tested and perfect(( had to go back to swift damp as a sponge took five months to repair)) next had sat-dish fitted noticed clothes in wardrobe wet(( fitter did not seal entry hole for cable)) so don't want any more professionals at this time. There most be some good ones out there but unfortunately I don't seem to get them.

In my MH all the appliance pipes are mighty thin. Look like they are sized for the job.

But I did have a blanked off outlet on the 4 switch main gas manifold, added extra tap and BBQ point. Job's a good 'un.

I used this one, a seriously proper job connector.

That's the exact one I have bought. The pipe for my fridge is 8 mm and has a single joint compression fitting just where I want it to be I was going to remove that and replace with t- piece so I think it should be ok.

Got a BBQ point fitted and it is a great job. No more need to carry out gas cylinder - however, getting someone to fit it means that the system can be pressure checked to make sure there are no leaks.
Go for it.

fit it yourself, pressuirse the system then spray some water with washing up liquid in it and check for bubbles, or you can buy a can of proper leak detector spray, which is essentially the samr thing but around a fiver.

Feel sorry for you as that would piss me off lots, however in Spain I have no problems finding professional people ( all be it Spanish people as the "Brits" rip the "Brits" off ).
Here in Spain when I have the yearly check done without the correct paperwork for gas/electric etc they will not pass the MH.
