    LWB Garage (All Versions)
    Hi I have an underslung LPG tank install near spare wheel and a HSE2000 heater underslung beneath the drivers seat, and a BBQ point to the rear of the van. For various reasons I have decided to build a "pod" at the rear which will allow the hob and sink to be pulled out when required. 2...
  2. Sub. pump for tap

    T4 Conversions
    Morning folks, hope you're all well and keeping your distance! Full lock down in France, so tackling some jobs. The submersible pump for my sink unit has died and I need to disconnect the gas hob to get to it (or maybe work out a way to take off the water tank?) Anyhow, I've come across the gas...

  4. Propex 1600 compact heater

    eBay Listings
    If Carlsberg sold secondhand Propex Heaters, this is probably the best one you'll see for a very long time. In fact, if you've been thinking of buying one for a while, then now's the time to do it - whilst the sun's splitting the pavements and nobody's thinking of preparing for winter. At least...

    Hey Everyone I'm looking for ideas on how to connect a calor gas bottle on the outside of the van to a stove on the inside. I've seen conversions that use a bbq quarter turn type connector, which sits behind a square plastic flap on the side of the van. I'm however wondering if anyone has an...
  8. Exhaust gas temperature sensor fault.

    General T5 Chat
    Following on from my "service in Cardiff" thread I actually read the fault codes instead of just clearing them and hoping the fault goes away. This is what vcds has found. Shop #: WSC 00162 210 60081 ASAM Dataset: EV_ECM20TDI01103L906022GH 002012 ROD: EV_ECM20TDI01103L906022CH.rod...

    T4 Conversions
    Hi there, I am looking into the various options for cookers in my van conversion. I am designing the unit so that the cooker sits in a type of sliding draw that will pull out the back of the rear side unit below the open tailgate. Our main reason for this is to avoid doing all the cooking...
  11. Catalytic gas heaters - why not?

    General Van Chat
    Look like the ticket for me because they are mobile and most of all CHEAP. I know they eat oxygen and release water vapor.. But how dangerous are they realy? If I open the window? How much open? If I just run the fan from the T5 to provide (cold) air circulation with the contact on, would that...

    Having read various differing views on gas safety and requirements I thought I would ask the experts. An article in MMM Motorhome Monthly Magazine a few months ago provided the contact list and this is what I sent on the 19th March: It was sent to these people : [email protected]
  16. Gas Cylinders - to seal or not to seal

    T4 Conversions
    I am currently nearing the end of my first T4 conversion and have come across a bit of a query in relation to whether it is mandatory to have a sealed metal gas locker to store the gas cylinder in?
