By default, the grill runs off small canisters.......
Now these canisters sell for about £5 each and over the weekend a canister lasted me just 3 meals! It was always the plan to ditch the canister idea, but going through them at that rate has hastened the fruition of that plan.
The idea is to get one of these conversion pipes
And as I already carry gas around with me I see little point in carrying another large bottle, so I now need one of these fitted to my van
It's an external bbq point that enables you to run the bbq off the caravan's gas. The part retails at £45 but it is not possible to fit it as DIY for two reasons.
- I would probably make a hash of it, cutting a hole too big and having leaking gas pipes.
- Without it being fitted by a National Caravan Council approved workshop the warrantee on the caravan would be invalidated.
A large mobile company was contacted next who confirmed they could do the job for £94. Great I said, when can you do it? Late August was the reply!!!!!
I have now arranged for a local independant engineer to do the job. He has quoted me £84 and can do it this Saturday afternoon.
Like the title says....... It pays to shop around.
