Gas Leak?

Hi everyone,

 

This isn't a problem, most of the time, as we usually have electric hookup, but, I follow the airshow circuit all over the place and, a lot of the time, you're in a farmers field with no mod-cons at all.

 

When I turn the gas, to the fridge, on, under the sink, it hisses and the smell of gas is incredible. I'm guessing it's leaking ;)

 

Is this something a DIYer can do or is it best to get a gas pro on board?

For insurance purposes I believe you need a gas safety cirtificate, this can only be issued by a qualified gas engineer. I'm guessing you are not too worried about that in this case but as you are asking I'm guessing you don't have the appropriate test gear.

Personally I would get somebody to check it for you, it won't likely be expensive in my experience.

An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.

Agree. ...leave it to a professional. .........as someone who lost a van because of a gas leak I wouldn't be too casual about it!

Definitely get it seen to by a properly qualified caravan gas engineer. Look around at your local mobile engineers and ask specifically for the right kind of person. You may be able to do a deal whereby you can have the 'van serviced at the same time, maybe save yourself a few bob. ...Peter

Hope you take all this advice. You can't mess with gas.

If you need to ask questions about gas . .......get a engineer to check it out.

To be fair, you're all kinda going the way I was thinking. I'm more than willing to get a bloke in, I was just after you more experienced folks input, which I thank you for! :)

If you are on t'internet where you are located, the NCC web site shows locations of approved caravan workshops. These guys are familiar with LPG fittings and carry spares.
