Hello to all.

I finally signed up. I discovered this site last summer when I was dreaming of downsizing back to a Boler. Last fall I found a Ď73 Boler only 8 hrs away to buy. I recovered the cushions and made new curtains, and we enjoyed it on a number of short trips this summer. We havenít used the propane yet. Iíd like someone who knows what theyíre looking at to go over it for me. I also need to overhaul the electrical, but Iím looking at going solar anyway. A couple of the windows leak. Iíve got some more reading to do - can I recalk or do I have to take them out and replace the gaskets? Iím enjoying planning and working on my new to me Boler.

My parents had a Boler. My husband and I bought a Boler when we were first married. We outgrew it, with 3 very tall kids, and foolishly let it go when we bought a larger trailer.

The kids are all grown and out on their own. I couldnít be happier to be back in a Boler. Room enough for us and even a couple of grandkids when we get a chance.

Long story short we have an 18í Bantom Trail Lite for sale. Great trailer! But itís not a Boler.

What is the issue with the propane?

If it is verifying the integrity of the propane hook-ups:
A. make sure that all hoses and piping are in good shape. No cracks, sharp bends, crushing or splits. Replace where needed.
B. all junctions are solid: from tank to regulator; from regulator to the splitter junction to the stove (and fridge (if a propane fridge)) Tighten and/or replace where needed.
C. Take the Boler outside and hook up the propane tank. Using a partner, open the propane and using the sniff test, check for leaks. Fix as needed.
D. turn on the stove and listen for the sound of propane flow. You should also be able to smell it.
E. if you hear nothing and all else checks out, you will need a new regulator.

You are wise to have a professional look it over and do the proper tests.

Review that information and you will see that the following is not sufficant to be safe. Heck, Nick didnt even mention using a manometer.
