External BBQ point 09 Warwick

Post by Jez on Fri Jun 16, 2017 1:25 pm

Please can someone advise me on the correct regulator for connecting my Cadac safari to the external BBQ point on my Warwick? My previous Van was a bayonet type but this looks like a push on fitting but can't find a dedicated cadac regulator to fit it.
Many thanks, Jez

Our warwick duo is from 2010 so if yours is the same,
The bbq point is already regulated you will need one of these

Thanks for the quick reply. I can't find a way of sending a photo but are you saying you would attach and detach the hose every time you use it? I've got a fitting on mine which looks like it should come off because I can't open the gas tap with it on but I can't see a way of doing it! I will try to sustain out sending a photo as its more obvious what I'm trying to explain.
Thanks

Is your connector released by pressing in a little collar with your thumbnail?? If it looks like this, that's probably how it is released, but if your gas outles is made by Bullfinch it will be a different system.

Difficult to describe, but if you have a fiddle it should become apparent if it is one of those. Thumbnail each side, press in and the fitting will probably fall out.

Sorry - may have just added to the confusion as I don't know which system they fit on your van. shrugg

This is the fitting on ours, the brass part with the numbers on moves to the right the release but only when the valve is in the off position. The isolator valve for this is under the bench seat under the wardrobe. Any questions just ask. The part mentioned above just pushes in and locks in place.

Hi Jenny and Peter
Mine is identical to your photo, the valve is turned off like yours and I tried to move the brass fitting to the right as you advise. The fitting won't budge its as if there is pressure behind it, the valve under the seat is also turned off. Is there anything else you need to do to release the fitting? The Van is booked in with Autosleepers next week for an unrelated fault, hopefully they can take a look at this too. Thanks for your help.

It will only move back if there is a connector inserted to release it.

Sorry that's confused me again, does the hose to the cadac go directly onto the fitting you mentioned that slides to the right to disconnect it or is there another fitting needed that isn't shown in your photo? I am feeling extremely thick at the moment as I can usually sus this sort of thing out but there is nothing at all in my Autosleepers owners manual and I do believe this is a standard feature on Warwick.!

One end of the hose connects to the Cadac; assuming that the connector that end is attached to the hose by a jubilee clip, the screw end of that connector can then be screwewd to the cadac and tightened. I tend to undo the hose from the cadac every time when dismantling, because it's easier to store the hose separately.

The other end of the hose should have a male connector attached to it by means of a jubilee clip. That male connector inserts into the socket illustrated above in jennyandpeter's photo. The collar on the socket will retain the male connector in place in the socket. The Cadac is then ready for use, as soon as the supply tap is opened.

To disconnect the male connector after the scrumptious meal, turn off the tap; push the collar away from the male connector; the male connector will then dislodge from the socket. As jennyandpeter say, the collar will only move when the male connector is in the socket; when it's not in, the collar doesn't move.

I suggest to try it, with the gas supply isolated via the inside tap within the van. When you've seen and felt how it works (it really is easy - no struggling or force involved) then go live.

That's making sense to me now, so I will get a male quick release connector. I guess once that's inserted the brass fitting shown in the photo releases to allow you to turn the gas tap on?

Yes!

I don't know if your Cadac is new, but if not it might be worth replacing the flexible gas hose by which the Cadac connects (as described above) to the van. You could pick up a pipe when buying the male connector. The pipe should have a date printed on it, laterally. Can't recall if it's the expiry date for safe use, or the date of manufacture. I went to Go Outdoors, and they cut me the length of pipe which I wanted - about 3m so that the BBQ was far from the van. That was before I'd ever used the Cadac. In practice you don't need that length for heat protection, and indeed I think it exceeds the recommended length. But I prefer it!

When you've enjoyed your first sausage, thank the Forum!

Great, thanks to you all for the help and advice. I have reserved a fitting at Go Outdoors and will replace the hose as you have suggested.
