Hello all from the UK,
Country Coach 2005 Allure - now resident in the UK / touring Europe & N. Africa
I am in the process of replacing / re-positioning my propane regulator
(as due to bad manufacturers installation, the regulator and adjoining hoses had filled with 'heavies' (LPG 'oil') and was making the good lady ill when the furnaces were used - not surprisingly
My present hoses date from 2003 to 2005 - the regulator dates from 2001
Propane (LPG) regulations "on this side of the pond" recommend hose replacement at 5 years and regulator replacement at 10 years
My gas engineer has refused to test / certify my repairs - due to the age of the hoses and his / the insurances implications of so doing !!
He did admit not knowing the construction / life span of US hoses - and based his refusal on UK specifications
We have agreed to make separate enquiries in advance of his next visit
What are the recommended hose / regulator replacement periods in the US please ??
Can someone point me towards something in writing ??
(I suspect that hose / regulator replacement is not something that is normally considered - but in our ever increasing litigious society - I thought it worthwhile getting my alterations 'gas checked' - bad move !!
Best wishes from the UK
