Watch this quick video showing you how to connect the gas to your stove
Setting up your gas stove for the first time is not difficult. Platinum Camper trailers include 9kg gas bottle holders as standard (some two) – You can purchase gas bottles from service stations, Bunnings and most camping stores. Here is a quick guide on how to connect it to your camper trailer for the first time.
Step 1 – Make sure your gas bottle still has gas. The easiest way to check is to give the bottle a shake – you should be able to hear the gas moving around. If this doesn’t work, you can also try hot water. Just grab a jug of hot water and pour it over the bottle. Run your hands down the bottle until it feels cold, and that’s the level the gas is at.
Step 2 – Place the gas bottle in the supplied holder.
Step 3 – Connect the gas bottle to the gas regulator – this is located near the holders. Ensure you have a good connection, turn the gas on and make sure it is not leaking.
Step 4 – Using the supplied gas hose – connect the stove to the bayonet fitting on the camper trailer.
Step 5 – Connect the other end of the hose to your stove.
Step 6 – Turn on the desired gas hob, and press down on the knob to ignite the stove. You may have to hold down the knob for a few seconds while it warms up.
Note: It sometimes takes a few moments for the gas to come through all the lines – give it a minute. And please exercise caution at all times when dealing with gas.
