Default Which Regulator - Propane Red Cylinder

Hi Folks

Just spent my first 3days at the caravan, really enjoyed it and heading back in September for a week.

Bit of advice if I can,
Currently there is a small orange Butane Gas bottle connected outside, I want to change this on my next visit to a Larger Red Propane Cylinder.

The Butane bottle currently just has a push on regulator which wont do the Red ones. I see there are 2 versions of the one I require.

Reca, Capacity 1kg/hour, Pressure 37 mbar, Inlet Pol nut, Outlet 8mm Nozzle.

Reca, Capacity 4kg/hour, Pressure 37 mbar, Inlet Pol nut, Outlet 3/8" Bsp female.

The tank will be at the end (behind) the caravan, with about 3-4m of Gas Hose to the inlet on the side of the caravan.

Which Regulator would be the correct one to buy.

Thanks

Hi there,
The best regulator to fit for a static is the 4kg/h as this keeps pressure better whilst appliances are in use and keeps the system within the permitted pressure drop allowance.
As fgor the hose in England 3-4m id not allowed with 1.5m being ideal and 2m being the absoulte maximum. I dnot know the regulations in Ireland but I would double check with a local LPG gas engineer.
Hope this helps
Ian

Thanks Cara, I thought the 4kg one would be better due to pressures, thanks.

Will have to check the lenght of hose out, though most on the site have their tanks at the back, though I havent seen there connections into the caravan as they have skirting on etc (I do not, yet), but my connection is on the side in the middle of mine.

Thanks
