Propane locker removal

I need to change out the thru fitting into the propane locker. I can access the back of the fitting via an opening in the trash receptacle. But, it would be very helpful if I can remove the propane locker itself. It looks as if it is sealed down with silicon and the drain can be unscrewed from inside the locker. Can somebody verify this? I'd hate to cut away the silicon seal, then find there is another gremlin holding the locker in place.

Thanks.

Perfect. Thanks.

Does the drain connection just unscrew inside the locker and then it all lifts out?

Re: Propane locker removal

Thanks Darksyde. I saw the access from the trash opening. Do the panels just pull off? I started a light tug on an edge and was afraid I'd bend and crease the panel.

Also, did you feed both your stove and oven propane lines into the locker? I have a European version with a single copper line going to the stove/oven and split at the stove. One option I have is to run two new lines, and potentially a third for the barbecue at the stern. How does everything fit in the locker? Seems like a tight fit.

Thanks!

Re: Propane locker removal

When we replaced the gas-lines last year (out of date), I looked at putting in a line from the locker to the BBQ. After checking it out with the gas-fitter, decided it was more trouble than worth.


Ended up mounting a separate Gas Bottle on the Stern (in a small locker with Drain), dedicated for the BBQ. Works well, and means I can turn it off at the bottle when not in use very easily.

We left the gas splitter under the stove, but we did fit an Electric Solenoid in the gas locker, and remote switch for it near the stove. Ours (2011 Model) didn't have one as standard.

Given how much we use the over, (none/never!), Probably going to pull it out. Will remove the splitter then and just have line direct to the stove.

Photo's in my other thread 'Refit for a cruising boat'.

Regards

Mark.

Re: Propane locker removal

Finally removed the locker. Had to cut away the seal holding the top edge down, PLUS 8 screws, two on each edge, hidden beneath the rubber lid seal. Drain came out as expected, just one center screw.

All sorts of gyrations and tools used to break the silicon seal.

Ill update with pictures once the project is finished.
