Where in BC can I have propane line fixed?

Hi everyone,

I have spent the summer restoring a 73 Boler and the project is coming along nicely!

I installed a Danby bar fridge in place of the old broken ice box that was originally in the Boler. I then cut a hole in the exterior wall and installed a vent. Since I had to cut out the vent from the outside, I could not see inside and accidentally cut in to my flexible copper propane line while cutting out the vent hole.

Though I feel like an idiot for cutting in to the line, I would really like to have it fixed. Does anyone know a place in the lower mainland, BC that I can get the Propane line patched?

Thanks in advance everyone!

Hi,

Darcy (user name: biggoolies) in Surrey takes his Bigfoot to a shop that does lots of work with Bigfoots. These guys understand fiberglass trailers and should be able to help you with your propane line.

Here's a link to Darcy's profile page:

Hope this helps.

Hi If you don't want to travel too far you can have it done at Travco in Burnaby. I would advise installing a brand new line because you don't want any unnecessary fittings inside the trailer. Otherwise there are plenty of RV dealerships in Langley that can do the repair.

Hope that helps.

Does the work NEED to be done ar an R/V dealership?

Wouldn't any good qualified gas fitter work?

They are, afterall, still certified.

If for a lot less $$, I'd go for that!

Propane Line

I had my copper tubing replaced locally in Calgary by an RV dealer. It was badly banged up and one of the nuts was cracked. Since my trailer only has the cook top the line was about 10 feet long. I took the old line to the shop so that we would get the length right. The fellow that did it for me flared the new tubing and put the new style, thicker nuts on it. He also ran it through a length of hose that I provided to protect the copper from rocks etc. I paid for the copper tubing and fittings, he did the flares free. Saved me having to buy a flaring tool.

Call Escape trailers - they will work on all makes of fiberglass trailers.

They also make flexible propane hoses, quite commonly available, that have pretty much replaced copper lines in recent years. They are much easier to install, and they don't suffer from flex annealing fatigue common to copper tubing that is subject to abnormally high vibration and shock (like in a trailer application).
