People will even trip over something which isn't there, so I'd opt for a longer hose and have it flat on the ground, rather than a short un which ain't, if I was to BBQ which we don't

Gas point, habitation door, awning all on same side of van, will need to climb out the window or come out the passenger door and take down the awning if using a 1.5M hose. BBQ wouldn't be under canopy or drive away awning, but would be way to close for comfort.

Thanks for all your responses - looks like I might go back to carrying a gas container �� - at least I can move it around as before to suit the wind conditions . Can't understand why these bbq gas points are fitted as there are safety issues if under awning and also hose being too short ����. Just seen an advert by a company who fit gas points for bbq's - might give them a call when back in UK to see what their stance is on the subject.

Thank you all for taking time to respond.

Regards

Cant you just fit a longer hose to your BBQ? Simple to do.

Ours is at least 2m (if not 3) so I can move the BBQ under the canopy if wet; outside if dry; and around the back of the MH if needed depending upon prevailing wind.

I bought the hose off a large dealers with a huge shop and another one off another specialist caravan accessories shop. I asked the same question and was told 2-3 m is more than fine.

It works well with good pressure and I have not once tripped on it (nor has anyone else) even with a beer or three on board

Ours is about 2 metres, enough to get it on the big table outside for cooking a meal on, under the awning or not as the case may be.

Don't forget, 5 years is the recommended life for the orange high pressure pipe, even if you are using it for low pressure feeds.

I sometimes wonder about the sort of stuff this site discusses.

To be fair there are folks who aren't as experienced as others (I'm not suggesting that the OP falls into this category btw); or see things differently. Also there are people who give duff advice as well (even those in "the know").

Sometimes we cant see the wood from the trees as well.

I have posted stuff and asked questions and then thought...what a tool I am for asking that when the answer is obvious

I love the fact that we can all ask stupid questions and get a mixture of very patient responses and banter

...and any discussion is better than no discussion at all I reckon
