LPG Dual stage regulater has any one had truble with them ?

I bought a new van in January 06 and I have replaced the regulater 3 Times. They work for a wile and then block up. The regulater is installed above the gas bottles.

I have been told it is a falty batch of regulaters or contaminated Gas.

Givern that I have had three lots of gas bottles from diferant sorces I dont think it is the gas.

If it is the regulaters CAMEC in brisbane have sold 1475 of them since January.

Please help let me know if you have had this problem or the answer to this problem

THANKS

This has been discussed on some of the caravan forums and some people are pointing the blame at the flexible stainless hoses from the bottle to the regulator. It appears that in some instances the gas has been having an effect on the internal rubber of the hose (questionable imported hoses) and this reaction has been causing a lot of the blockages. Some have replaced the stainless hoses with either a gas hose available from all car LPG fitters or a copper line. I would be more inclined to use a dedicated LPG flexible hose rather than risk a copper line fracturing with vibration.
Regards Andrew.
ps: installing the regulator above the bottle/s is also a good idea.

That may make sence.

Could you tell me how to access the caravan forums so I can find the right brand of hose to buy I wiil look to see if the hoses that are fitted to my van have the correct Australian Standed marked on them.

Thank you, now you have me thinking.

BBB, one forum which is pretty good for caravans is
caravan forum
You just need to join up to be able to post questions. Notice though, that they quote
