    Hello. Please help. I have recently acquired an autosleeper (1998 model) equipped with two butane gas bottles. How is it recommended to store these in winter? Are they OK left in the gas bottle storage cupboard ? I understand that Butane freezes.

    I would suggest that you visit your local Calor dealer then you won't have any problems. ::bigsmile:

    Leave them where they are, it's not a problem if you're not using the van.. but it if you are, then as Don hinted at.. change to propane .. :winky:

    Hi,
    As already mentioned leave in Locker.
    When people say the gas freezes, they don't mean it freezes solid like water to ice, they mean it just won't 'gas' and stays as a liquid.
