RV refrigerator vs heater LPG pressured3 by Bruce G
Post New Message Recently, my Dometic refrigerator decided to take a dump and drip out the very naughty green liquid. An RV mech. replaced the coiling unit and got my fussy refrigerator back to working order. When he measured the LPG gas line pressure he found it to be 12.4 inches of water column instead of the recommended Dometic value of 11.0. He replaced the regulator with a two stage unit set at the corrected level and we were on our way.
Lo and behold the first place we camped we needed our heater and now it will not light, going off after a minute. I suspect that it needs more LPG gas flow to operate. My new regulator is adjustable but I do not have a meter to adjust it. Should I attempt to adjust the flow level up or is this a sign that the heater now needs a new part as well?
