I'm blond, well what is left of my hair is blond... thanks
Reading your post. Please make sure you do have natural gas, just because you have piped gas doesnt make it natural gas. majority of the time if your on a holiday park it will still be LPG even if piped as it will come from LPG tanks sited somewhere on the park. This is exactly the same as bottled gas just bigger versions.
Check with the park first, but I`d put money on its LPG. Its a common mistake a lot of people make.
As for fitting a new fire, once you`ve checked that you have the correct gas supply you can then look for a replacement fire, Widney and Spinflo are you best options for caravans, stay away from flueless fires and I wouldnt use any other type personnally.
Hope this is of some help
talking about replacing gas fires, i am considering changing my gas fire to an electric one, would i be able to fit any electic fire from a diy store,as long as the measurments are correct of course
Yep, should be no problem (check with your site if it okay though). If you have a hearth then a freestanding one will work fine, if not, then you may have to attach to battons. One thing to remember is to get your old gas fire disconnected properly and the gas pipe either removed or capped. The flue can be left in place.
