Using BP Gas Light for caravans or motorhomes - weight is crucial so the
cylinders are half the weight of the steel equivalent. You can also see
the gas level and so plan ahead on the move.
There are three important things to know when you are considering
using BP Gas Light with your caravan or motorhome.
1. Which BP Gas Light size will fit in my caravan? Different makes
and models of caravan and motorhome fit different sizes of BP Gas Light.
BP Gas Light is available throughout the UK in the 10kg size. The 5kg
size BP Gas Light is currently only available through some Truma
stockists. To find out more, use our Bottle Finder tool or call our
customer services team.
Please check your manual or contact your manufacturer to find out which
size will fit your caravan or motorhome.

2. How do I secure the cylinder in my cylinder compartment? Some
cylinder compartments have mouldings or brackets on the floor of the
compartment that are designed to fit steel cylinders. You can buy a
plastic bracket to fit in your cylinder compartment which will hold both
BP Gas Light and steel cylinders safely and securely in place.
3. How do I connect the cylinder to my caravan? BP Gas Light is fitted
with a 27mm clip-on valve. This is much safer than traditional screw fit
valves because you instantly know when you have fastened the connector
securely rather than messing about with a spanner. However, many makes
and models of caravan and motorhome are not fitted to take 27mm clip-on
valves. A simple adapter kit is available through most Truma dealers.
