Hi Keith, I have managed to get the petrol heater installed so many thanks for your pictures and helpful advice [THUMBS UP SIGN]

My next request is if you could show the details of your Gaslow cylinder install.
I’m aware you have the R67 2.7kg cylinder of which I have just purchased and was wondering how you refill it, is it via the remote fill point that Gaslow sell or do you take it out and get a place to refill it for you?
Also how is it secured to the van and plumbed in?
My idea would be to hole saw and fit the remote filler point to the LHS front wheel arch. I would like to fit a accessory point near the slider door for a gas bbq with a quick fit connector.
I am not copying your Syncro build honest lol!
Cheers,
Mike.

Ok thanks, it’s probably this Tapatalk app, great for posting up photos but no so good at other stuff. I look via normal web browser cheers.

Good install. I like the strap and brackets at the base to stop it moving around.
I will add a vent in the floor and buy a fill adapter.
Are some garages against the public filling LPG directly into the cylinder?

This is a nice little box I heard about on the Westfalia Refuge, the MAX004 case - https://www.trifibre.co.uk/product/max004/

It fits under or in the wardrobe perfectly, I removed the feet from the bottom to get it under. Before that I was carrying an old socket set with loads of Imperial bits I never used. I ordered some socket rails which fit great in the box. No rattling with the foam insert too :mrgreen:

Thanks for that - I don't do farcebork, so it's really helpful when tips like this get reposted on here.
