Gimeg rubber propane hose
This gas hose by Gimeg is 1.5 metre and made of rubber. Keep in mind that gas hoses are sensitive to UV light, especially those that are made of rubber. This means that gas hoses used outdoors may require more frequent replacement. Are you connecting a gas hose inside a vehicle? Then make sure the hose is installed in a flowing bend. If it is bent too sharply, it can rupture. Rubber hoses always need to be accessible for monitoring and replacement.

Check your gas hose
For your own safety it is important to check your gas hose annually. You do this by bending the hose and pulling it straight. Do you notice any tears? Then it needs to be replaced. In general low pressure hoses need to be replaced every three years, while high pressure hoses require replacement every five years. The gas hose shows the production date, so you can check how long you have been using the hose. When you are connecting the new hose, you can use water and a bit of dish washing liquid to check for any leakage. If bubbles appear, there is a leak in the connection. Make sure this is resolved before you start using your connection.
With this rubber propane hose from Gimeg your gas installation for camping will be complete. Remember that safety always comes first. The gas hose needs to be connected by an experienced technician and needs to be checked for leakage before using your gas installation.
