Sorry, I am prob in wrong forum, but could not find what I was looking for. I have a travel trailer and the lp pipe that runs from the LP tanks to the hot water tank, fridge, stove, and furnace (all split off main line) is rusting really bad. I want to replace the main line (the split offs are copper, but main line is steel) and would like to use a non-metallic type of pipe. Is this feasible? What kind would work? Need a little guidance here for safety reasons.This message has been edited. Last edited by: ARCHER,
I don't think there is a true non-metalic gas line available. There is a flexible rubber coated line that is commonly used for residential construction.
Since there are some unique stresses on a travel trailer, I would check with a local travel trailer dealer to see what your material options may be. I do know that steel lines are used as opposed to copper since the softer copper can eventually break if it flexes enough.
i give out a lot of advice on this forum..and enjoy doing so.
but gas is the one topic i will tell you to have a pro do it.it is to dangerious for a diy job.
bite the bullet and call a plumber to install new piping in your trailer.
Frodo, tks, I agree 100%. Gonna check at RV dealer to see what they may have to say about it. Again, tks for the advice.
