A week or so ago there was a thread on here about gas fittings; quick connect/release types.

Now, do you think I can find that damn thing in the archives or back pages???? Not on your nelly!!!!

Does anybody know the one I'm referring to and could maybe give me a thread number please??

Thanks

I saw a grey hose in a local heating and cooling retail shop today which had a bayonette type fitting like the one shown in the photo on that previous post. The hose with fitting was $67-. The female fitting on the other end was about 3/8" or so (maybe 1/2") and i couldn't tell whether it was left or right hand thread.

However, they didn't seem to have the other fitting (wall mount)..... but there was only one bloke serving in the shop and he was busy with another customer, so I couldn't ask him anything.

I guess the other option is to just use air fittings (a different sort to what I have as my standard air fittings) and paint them orange (which seem to be the standard for LPG)? No reason why this shouldn't work is there? Flamin hard to believe those fitting s would cost so bloody much though....that's crazy!!!!

Thanks Roachie

You can get them at Reeces plumbing and I gather others. You see them used on Rennai heaters and the like.

Lyndon, as you are probably aware they come standard on the Tvan, have you tried them to see where they source them from.

Thanks Shaker, just checked their website and it looks like their product under the heading of "SPARES".....item number SP-7.... is the way to go. They look like normal air fittings to me, but I've sent them an email asking who their stockists are or better still, do they do email ordering (their website didn't have an online shop etc).I would prefer this type of fitting before the other (domestic heater type connection) if possible.

Cheers

Hi Roachie,
My Challenge camper has one fitted. Check with Garth at their factory at St Marys (SA) where he gets them - he's always very helpful.
Cheers

Gday Mr Roach
That photo shows a "TEMA" coupling that can be picked up at Pirtec or Enzed or any good hydraulic supplier. They have two seals in the coupler , but check first if legal. We dont want you flying without a licence and a big burning rooster tail.
