BBQ point on warwick

Post by Abbenesse on Wed Apr 26, 2017 10:26 am

just tried to use the external point and found no gas reaching the cadac BBQ. The pipe is clear as I blew through it and the cadac has no blockages. When coupled thehose to the valve and turned the gas on no gas escaped into the small bowl of water in which the open end of the pipe was sitting. I do not think that there is an internal shut of valve and my thoughts are going towards a fault in the Truma unit. What are your views on using a little LPG grease on the male connector to try and clear the valve. Have not used the external valve since last summer but never have really BBQ in the depths of winter.

I presume the main shut off valve is not turned off - probably in the wardrobe although I don't know your van at all. If you have had a habitation check in the meantime it could have been left switched off. It happened to my tugger friend and he was baffled for days when his fridge wouldn't work! scratch head

Can't imagine a tiny smear of grease would hurt anything if you are careful to keep it away from the orifice.

There is an internal shut off valve under the seat/bed below the wardrobe.

Has anyone an idea where the internal shut of valve is on the 2014 Kemerton ?...though at present I have more important problems to consider after my accident yesterday, resulting with a large amount of damage to the rear near side lower corner of the vehicle. Scuttled our holiday plans & definitely an insurance job.
