Have your gas installation regularly checked for leak density and durability.
We recommend that an annual inspection of installation in the motor home, and every 10 years an inspection of the gas tank.
This inspection includes your entire gas installation, (LPG, Propane or Butane).
The following elements shall be checked:
- Quality and durability of assembly;
- Control of the materials used;
- Control of leakage;
- Control of protections;
- Conformity of installation and assembly;
- The LPG tank and its elements (electric service crane, automatic 80- fill limiter, …);
- The flexible pressure lines;
- The gastight box (if any);
- The LPG filling line;
- The LPG pressure line.
This inspection can be carried out immediately while you wait.
For this inspection there must be gas in your tank.
10-year inspection of the LPG tank
The 10-year inspection shall also perform a pressure test on the tank, in addition to the elements checked during the annual inspection.
The following parts shall be replaced during this inspection:
- Filling hose;
- All flexible pipes (rubber pipes).
Sensitive connections are also renewed.
During this inspection, the tank shall be disassembled if it is attached to the tank. A pressure test is carried out on the tank.
It’s best that the tank is empty when you come by. If there is still gas in the tank it will be let out.
It is necessary that the motor home is left for 1 day (day A, day C pick up).
Another possibility is that the tank will be disassembled on day A while you wait, and that you will continue with the motor home. On day C you can then come back to have the tank reassembled. This way, you don’t have to miss your motor home for a single day.
Also for propane or butane
The inspection is not only recommended for LPG users, but equally good for those who cook or heat on propane or butane.
You will receive an inspection report from each inspection, with any recommendations that may promote the safety of your gas plant.
