Hi Slickmouse,YES that's a BIG NOOOOO You should also line your gas cuboard in metal with plenty of holes in the bottom,gas being heavier than air so if you have any leaks it vents out of the bottom :winky:
Not questioning your ability :ROFLMAO: but are you sure you should be messing with the gas bits ??? or was it a lpse of memory asking such a question :thumb::Doh:

Some of us have large LPG tanks mounted on their side under the motorhome, but these are special vapour draw-off models. Other than the take-off pipe drawing from the vapour space at the top instead of liquid at the bottom (you need to look inside to see the difference), they look identical from the outside and the filling procedure is the same as those fitted to LPG-powered cars.

i once shook an almost empty calor bottle attached to a superser portable heater to 'agitate' the dregs.:Doh:

never again........the heater was still lit and i couldnt put the fire out cos of the liquid gas in the pipe.:Eeek:

not only does it flare up but it spits burning gas everywhere......new lounge carpet required. :Blush:
