Re: Sattler RV stove info

Man I cant find a thing on that make of stove on the net. But as it says on the model plate install according to the clearances recommended and install as you would any other gas stove. It probably is equipped with soft copper tubing I assume? Then you can use compression fittings to tie it into your gas system as you would with any other. Just make sure you take the time to check every fitting out with soapy water to see if you have any leeks. You can't be too careful with this. Once you are sure you have done things good and proper like make sure all the valves on the stove are off and leave the bus for awhile. Give it an hour or so then open the door and see if there is any smell. And don't forget to buy an alarm and install it. Your life could depend on it.

tells you about how old your stove is Just follow the installation instruction of a newer model and keep the clearances as printed on your stove decal.

NEVER USE COMPRESSION FITTINGS for gas!!! Use flare fittings with forged flare nuts.......personally I wouldn't even use copper tubing myself (because of road vibration). Run black iron pipe & stainless flex connectors. And FYI, never use copper on natural gas, it will eat it apart from the inside-out.
Sure am glad I haven't quite got to this part in mine. Was my book wrong about compression fittings? And why?
