Hi all, i a Question that needs some sort of relavent answer.I have a Motor home & as i am not retired yet & do not get out with it as much as we would like.We started having problems lighting the gas burner on the stove seemed not to be enough gas.Weekend over tried to light the said apliance this afternoon as well as the hot water to no avail,gas flow problem i think .Took the gas bottle out & connected it to the bbq ,it fired up ok.Do the regulators play up, so to speak (kark it) as i have never had a problem like this with gas or regulator's if nobody is qualified to answer i do understand as it is a specialised field. thanks for your input or non input & have a good evening.Bob.

Was it made by man.......? Yes they can fail.

Just check the inlet to the regulator. There is sometimes a gauze filter that can clog up. I had a spider stuck in one once. Also, do you have a gas fuse fitted? you may have triped it.

Hi Bob
The gas jets in the stove can also glog up if you get some dirty gas. If it is a Dometic ring and they will tell you the number of the tool you need to take the jets out with You can buy it from Bunnings. Also I have a cigarette filter in the line just after the gas bottle to catch the dirt.

My son bought a second hand but fairly new 5 burner bbq recently. The owner said it didnt operate very well. Gas flow was poor . A new regulator was fitted and problem quickly solved.
