Installing GasStop

Duration: 2:45

GasStop is just what it sounds like. If there’s a major leak in the propane system in your camper it stops the flow of propane. What great peace of mind. It’s easy to install and also tells you the fill status of your propane tank BEFORE leaving on your trip. It can also be used to detect minor leaks in the propane system in your RV. Visit GasStop’s website for more info.

    I have a 2 stage automatic changeover LP valve for my 5th wheel camper. Should I use the “Gas Stop” valve at the propane tank or after the 2 stage changeover valve? I am not sure if the “Gas Stop” would get a false reading during the changeover process and assume there is a leak due to low pressure?

    Read the user reviews. If you use your RV in sub-freezing conditions, this may not be the product for you. The pressure gauge is no more reliable than less expensive gauges in cold weather; but more importantly the initial big draw of a RV furnace starting during sub-freezing conditions can trigger this device. You’ll figure it out when the RV gets cold enough, and head outside to do a reset. And it will continue to trip each time the furnace starts. Many fall hunters routinely use their RVs with ‘crisp’ temps at night. While we use our RV seasonally in the south, there are still a few weeks where night time temps cab drop into hard freeze range. My propane tanks are outside the travel trailer. If a leak is internal, my RV has a alarm. If the leak is external, propane is heavier than air and will settle to ground and assuming there is no flame or spark outside the RV, the propane with dissipate with any breeze.

    My Alaska cabin was trashed by a grizzly last Fall. The propane was off at the tank. The range and propane fridge were destroyed. Both were on the same line. I am worried that during the times we are away resuplying should the same happen and the fridge line was torn off while the range pilot lights were on, the fire resulting woul totally destroy the cabin. Would this device react sufficientlc quickly to prevent the fire?

      Hi Stephen. This is supposed to shut off when a line is open and gas is flowing too fast. There is an excess flow valve inside that allows gas through but only at a certain rate. Once it gets too high, the valve closes preventing gas from flowing. If there is a break in the line this is supposed to shut down the whole supply to prevent gas from leaking. This sounds like something I would recommend for your issue as it could help prevent a gas leak from animal destruction.

    I would not rely on that gauge to tell me if my tank was full or half full. It’s a pressure gauge not a volume gauge. Propane like any liquified gas exerts the same pressure as long as there is liquid in the tank. So your tank may be almost empty but still read in the green depending on the temperature of the liquid and the environment. If you want to know how much is the tank take it off and weigh it.

    If you have two tanks on your trailer will it monitor both at the same time or will the gas stop have to be taken off the empty tank and installed on the other tank? Having two tanks means there’s a switch over valve from the empty tank to the full tank which is done manually by hand.
