Default Gas: copper pipe to rubber tube connection

what is the best way to connect a rubber pipe to a copper tube?

I've got the copper pipe in place but need to fit the regulator at one end and the cooker at the other, is there some special fitting that I need?

oh, and it's 10mm copper pipe.

Cheers
Pete

you need a barbed connector and two worm drive clips (jubliee clips).

more info if I can find a link on the way

This will also conform to the gas standard (as far as I know; I know the boat not caravan standard) as it is the low pressure side.

here is a 8mm connector this needs then to be converted to 10mm tube assuming you got 8mm BS 3212 / 2 hose

two 10mm hose connectors and jubilee clips as its a low pressure install , but to conform to regs you shouldn`t be able to access the bottle from inside the van

awesome have you read the habitation and EN gas reg's for motorhomes? Really hope so I have so many questions please please start a thread

BS3212 / 2 hose at 10mm can you please please please post a supplier as well as for barbed connectors ?? thanks

Also could you please please please let me know the point in both the recent gas EN and the old BS PD in which the outside van access occurs. I know it appears in the habitation reg but how does realate as all see is the contradiction in terms of the encloser vs sealed locker and elsewhere

Solder a 10mm olive on the tube 5mm from the end and then hold the pipe on with a fuel pipe clip.
