Copper line repairs and/or replacement
Gentlemen, I believe that we can all agree on one thing if nothing else. The trailer/mh owner has every right to do as he/she pleases as to the quality of repair or replacement that they choose to do or feel comfortable with on their trailer or motorhome! With that said the issue here is Safety FIRST! It goes without saying that old piping on old coaches/motorhomes is a safety issue and should never be taken lightly. If it were me, I would opt to change all the old copper out for new. As was previously stated...you never can know the amount of propane, the usage llevel of appliances, nor the road miles that are on the old piping. I also will say that replacing this piping should be best done by a professional. I'm sure that there are propane dealers that will take on the replacement of these line and connect all appliances for a fee and will stand behind their workmanship. Then too, you can always have an Airstream Dealer or other RV dealer do the work. Either way it screams to be done right by someone who knows how to deal with propane systems. Shelling out the dough to get it done the right way may not be fun but neither are funerals. So save a life or two and spend the money to have the job done right and save your piece of mind. mho...
