LPG Query

I have a Tribute 669 with an underslung LPG tank.
Recently returned from a trip where I had an issue with the gas. This is a new vehicle MAY 19
Problem was the gas pressure suddenly became variable , from flaring up suddenly to very low pressue and then going out altogether, it then seemed to fix itself BUT then happened again next time I used it.

Anyone any ideas why this should happen, it had previously been ok

Maybe a fault in the regulator or the cooker. Either way just have it checked out.

The problem is likely to be that if it's intermittent the mechanics or whoever won't be able to replicate the problem and therefore won't be able to offer any certainty as to what's caused it or how to fix it. Keep your phone handy and video it if it happens again. Half the time with intermittent faults I get the impression that because they can't replicate it they don't believe it happens and dismiss you as some kind of nutjob.

Back to the dealer as a matter of urgency would be my advice.

Canít be too careful when it comes to gas


Oh and welcome to MHF

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

If the tank has been even slightly overfilled and liquid has been sent into the regulator, it could be contaminated and cause diaphragm damage. Possibly a new regulator.

Welcome to MHF.

Everyone's advice is good, particularly Mrplod who advises you to go straight to the dealer you bought your van from. A warranty repair is free.

You don't give your approximate location, but if you are lucky enough to have bought from JohnsCross Motorhomes in East Sussex they will have you back on the road in no time.

Just as a matter of information - when filling with LPG you should NOT keep going past the first cut-off of the pump. They stop at 80% fill for safety reasons and you shouldn't try to squeeze more in.
