Title: LPG System Recon
Post by: Pimp Wagon on April 07, 2021, 03:54 PM
When we looked at PW before purchase the seller was able to demonstrate the water heater, stove, furnace and refrigerator without issue which was good.  Turns out after getting down and dirty and checking it out after purchase that that funky odor in the van was not the toilet flapper seal but every LP fitting leaking confirmed by bubble testing. Remaining LP of course leaked out and when we had it inspected by Big Box RV of course they said they could not test the system as is was out of LP and they could not fill it cuz the tank had not been certified recently.  Knowing now that ASME tanks are fixed and do not require certification, I still get why they wouldn’t want to fill a potentially leaking system in their shop.  I’ve poked around locally and have not found any leads on someone that can really get this done on an older system correctly..... any direction would be much appreciated... thanks Bill

That is a difficult situation encountered by owners with that set up.
I'm thinking maybe consider seeing if converting to a standard set up is possible?
 Hm?
