Nope no idea of anyone.

Not knowing where leak s is I'm assuming "O" ring or maybe a tap
Only thing I thought of..... Is  Smev not part of the Dometic crew?..(common parts used?)....

Apart from caravans/campers would they not be used in Marine applications .... local ish chandlers for Diy parts or pointer for someone same as any caravan dealer/service shop might

I looked up a couple of Smev/Dometic marine dealers.  Offering some spares but I couldn't find and seal kits.  Riduculous prices too.

Might be worth asking:-

Re: Gas Sevicing

Cheers for that. I have seen a couple of them but missed the Falkirk one. Its looking like a new cooker as i am sure my twist on/off valve for the grill is shot. The sites i see for spares they want in the region of £50 add the hour labour charge then whatever else it may want i am in new cooker territory. I see the same one without the grill going for £120 as they are new old stock. Got a winning bid on one just now what is new but guy changed his mind mid build so fingers cross i get that cheap.

So why is smev so popular, is there no competition is unless i buy old from the 70's everything new seems to be smev.

Scrap all that ^^ dono who he is. Slavering git big_smile

Being the kind of guy who hates admitting defeat and not wanting to part with good beer money i thought i would give this a last look. Undid the cooker and took it out what is a pain and its pop riveted. Upside down on the floor where i could see and hear properly i turned the gas on and sprayed the underside of the cooker with soapy water. Not a bubble, not even a hiss then after a break in the passing traffic i hear the hiss but its coming from the bottle. Odd so having a closer look i discover this

Luckily i have a spare so swapped them over and did a bench test and all seemed to be well with no hissing from bottle or cooker. Result big_smile
