Greetings. I've just bought a Romahome, based on a 1995 Citroen C15 van. It has a gas cooker, and a fridge which I think can also be powered by gas. But I have no manual or instructions.

Can any Romahome owners help me to work out how to use it? If I open the valve on the gas cylinder in the little cubby-hole on the outside, should the cooker then work just by turning the burner ring controls on? And what about the fridge? There are controls down below it, including what looks like one for lighting the pilot light, but I'm reluctant to fiddle too much in case I blow up myself, the van and half of Wimbledon Park.

Thanks for any help!

Hi andrewjc ... welcome to Ukcampsite ...... the gas you need is Campingaz .... our Romahome is a little older (well quite a lot)

With our van if you drop the front of the sink .... there are 2 red knobs one says Fridge the other Cooker - they need to be turned on too ........

With the Fridge you need to turn the knob and push ignition and count to about 30 .... you may have repeat theis many many times lol (ours can take 10 - 20 minutes at times) ....... if you look inside the fridge - there should be what looks like a clear bung ...... that is where you will see if the pilot is alight

Will see if I can find our instructions and copy them for you - but for now hope above is of some help

Cas, thank you, that's brilliant! I wasn't expecting such a quick reply. I will try tomorrow, perhaps after getting a new gas cylinder, as I think mine is almost empty.

Hi andrewjc ...... it's always handy to have a second gas bottle (which will lay on it's side in the bottom of the cubby-hole..... they are expensive to buy (and around £15 for a refill) ........ we managed to get 4  bottles from the tip for £5 ...... one was more full than empty

To check how much gas you have in the bottle ---- slowly pour boiling water over the bottle ......... and where the frosting looking level is, is where the gas comes toooooo

Hi Andrew, I get advice here and the small motorhome site.  I enjoy both of these sites a great deal.

You should not store the gas bottles on their side, also using bottles from tips is very dangerous, You need to make sure that they are pressure tested. One way round this is to use LPG, you need a special cylinder that can be refilled, its brand new with a 10 year life span, you then get the relevant adapter for europe, italy spain etc.

If you travel alot this is the most economical way of doing it, because unlike when you take an empty cylinder in, you are just topping up the gas in your existing cylinder. Also saves having to take 2 cyclinders around with you. Only problem is with Spain as LPG is very hard to find - just make sure you have a full tank before you enter the country

I know this was not the initial thread but hopefully is helpful

New to this but I have slightly different query. Have replaced old regulator and hose for campingaz 907 in my 1992 romahome but package says not suitable for caravans? Any idea why anyone it's exactly the same as one I've replaced! Any advice greatly appreciated I'm supposed to go away tomorrow!

Check with supplier, but I think it might mean "not suitable for caravans fitted with a bulkhead regulator" (as all current ones are, as far as I know) which of course need a high-pressure "pigtail" hose between cylinder and regulator.
