- Due to the modern design of the regulator, you will most likely NOT have to cut and re-flare your lines for installation.
- There is a brass two-into-one T-fitting into which your copper lines thread. You'll need to keep this T-fitting and reuse it when installing your new tank.
- When removing the lines and the splitter from your old regulator, you can utilize a pipe plug to stop the flow of LP before removing the old tank.
- We recommend having your new tank professionally purged before the first filling. Please contact a local RV shop for purging.
- Likewise, any leftover LP in your old tank should be professionally purged.
WARNING: When attaching fittings to the regulator, be sure to support the regulator with a second wrench at the end you are attaching the fitting. DO NOT hold the opposite end of the regulator while torquing down the fitting as this can crack the casing of the regulator (see images).
