Hi. The 1 burner and fridge run off the same gas bottle in my camper. The burner flame is low and someone suggested it could be that the milibars on the gas bottle regulator are too low to pressure the gas through enough.
Can anyone tell me how many mb's are needed please?

Used to be Butane 28mb and Propane 37mb I think with each having a regulator screwed to top of gas bottle.

Now they have a universal regulator fixed to the bulkhead in the gas locker with a specific (to the gas type) pigtail connection to the gas bottle.

Regulators can fail over time.

If it is a bulkhead fixed regulator these are set at 30mb which works propane and butane gas just a different pigtail hose for whichever gas you use.

It could also be the valve on the bottle, or the isolating valve that are not fully open, or even the bottle being almost empty.
