Mismanaging propane can be an explosive mistake. Don’t let this crucial, but often-overlooked, maintenance item cause your RV trip to go up in flames!
We’re doing something a little different this week. By necessity, our videos are usually edited to a reasonable length. If they weren’t, you’d be hanging around with us for hours on some of our more involved projects. Today, we’re taking advantage of both the importance of the topic, and the speed and ease with which it can be completed, to bring you our first real-time DIY video.
In the actual time it takes to do the job of replacing our outdated propane detector (did you know that they MUST be replaced at certain time intervals?!) we shoot an entire video, almost completely unedited. This will show how quickly and easily this important job can be done.
If your propane detector has been “out of sight, out of mind” let this be a reminder to check it, so you don’t end up like the RV in the video! ????
