Propane System

Our propane system supplies power to our Dometic Cooktop as well as our Propex Heater. The entire system is located under our kitchen cabinet, with a sealed and vented locker to store the propane tank.

The Propane Locker...

Through research, we learned that it is very important to have a sealed and vented propane locker. Propane is heavier than air, so you want a place for it to escape if you have any leaks. Our tank, solenoid valve, and regulator are all in the sealed locker. We have a 3/4 inch hole cut through the floor of the locker and van as an escape route for any leaked propane.

Supplies we used

We used flexible copper tubing along with flare and NPT fittings for the majority of our propane system.
