RV Repair in NE recommendations please

I know we are supposed to be doing most of the work ourselves, but some of us know when we are lacking the right skill sets and are willing to pay for the work.

I have an 84 U-Haul CT. I would like to have the old iron pipes removed and replaced with up to date pipes so that I can feel safe about using the stove. The original set up included a heater, fridge, and stove. Now only the stove is still there. The pipes look okay on the outside, and I have used the stove since I bought it but have only camped in it a handful of times so far.

I am seeking recommendations for an RV repair place in New England/Northeast that you have had good luck with and are willing to work on our beloved fiberglass trailers.

I adore the U-Haul group on facebook, but this time I need to reach out to a bigger community. Thanks for your time.

Sharon

Thank you for three excellent suggestions. I am sorry to be late responding, I was out of the house all day. Gerry I did get your pm and thank you. I will write tomorrow. No rush on my part, I am just thinking ahead for the spring.

black pipe

I bet that black pipe is a standard length any handyman or plumber should be able to replce it for you if needed. in my scamper I can see where it comes in and the trail it takes to the stove.

you should only have on or 2 joints get yourself some soapy water and spray around with the gas on. I doubt if you see any leaks!

The Home Depot in N. Conway will cut and thread pipe for you. Just inspect the thread after they do it. I was doing gas install projects on 5 cabins and had all my pipe cut custom sizes but the cutter for the 3/4 inch pipe had a bad tooth so the thread wasn't any good. I saw it before too many were cut. and they got another cutter.
