I'm replacing the whole lot on the Sovereign.

Soft copper tubing is fine.

Compression fittings for LPG lines should "NEVER" be used.

Flare type brass fittings are always used for the LPG lines.

Lee.

I wrote the vast majority of that article.

Airstream modified that article, adding to the errors that was in the original article.

As an example, the very last paragraph, is grossly incorrect, which I did not write.

Airstream has been advised of these errors, and the incorrect paragraph, and will have the entire article removed, corrected, and then republished.

I personally advised Airstream of the problems and they assure me that it would be corrected, but would take a while to accomplish that.

Since that article is still in their web site, I will ask them to remove it, until the necessary corrections have been made.

I suggest that links to that article not be made again, until the corrections have been made.

Further, Airstream did not ask me if they could copy what I wrote, which is another issue.

Andy

Underside Detached copper lines

Good idea, I'll mess around and come up with a solution-right or wrong. Galvanic corrosion makes sense as the culprit WHICH I thought had a lot to do with electrical current-(as in Marinas), so the inert rubber or other object makes sense. The older Spartans keep all their propane lines inside-more dangerous perhaps, but less vulnerable. Each of my propane appliances have seperate T-valves-(cut-off), this includes the furnace, Dometic Fridge and the Hot water heater. The copper is old and swollen, but heavy duty. I will try and show my work with a picture or two-Thanks for all the sensible help suggestions.
