Is this something that can be added?? I have just purchased a Burstner and I believ it is an option. Think it is TopTron system. Can I source this or something similar to fit ? Has anybody done so. Also looking at LPG. Dealership fit GASLOW and want £950.00 to fit 2 x 11kg bottles. GAS IT I can purchase 2 x 13 Kg bottles with fill auto shut off at 80% and bluetooth for £500 plus fitting. Any opinions, and can CPU be fitted...

Thanks

Why not just turn the gas tap off before you set off anywhere and save yourself £900 odd quid.
Its not like your missus will be cooking dinner while you drive to site 😁
They want the £950 to fut the GASLOW LPG system inc parts not the Crash Protection Unit...

Given that the base vehicle heater only just manages the cab anyone travelling further back will be very cold. If it's an A class the heating is often needed even if there's no-one further back.

The Truma Duo valve with crash protection is about £200, very easy to fit. If your Gaslow bottles are the R67 with built in ani-rupture valves you won't need the anti-rupture pigtails at £35 each.
If you don't want auto changeover the single Truma valve with crash protection is about £120.

In other words, your dealer is ripping you off. They're charging you about £300 to screw a regulator to the bulkhead and lift two bottles into the cabinet. Tell em to take a hike.

Gaslow twin 11kg should be no more than £699 fitted, some dealers want £1,300. I see you are in Essex, there is a fitter here that has a testimonial from there, have a look no connection to me just googled for you, full system fitted is less than £699 https://www.rhinoinstalls.co.uk/Gaslow-Refillable-Gas-Cylinders-Twin-Bottle-Kits

Crash system with same guy is around £200 fitted! probably get a deal with both fitted at once https://www.rhinoinstalls.co.uk/Truma-DuoControl-CS
Seen and heard alot about Rhino installs......
