Re-plumbing the Force 10 stove
When we installed the Foce 10 stove we plumbed it up using pipe tape. One day we were at Downwind Marine talking about it and Criss mention we should have used gas pipe tape (yellow). That the pipe tape (white) will start coming apart after a couple years. OK never knew there was such a thing. So it has been more than a couple years and our Trident gas sensor alarms have been going off too often.
We have three.
One under the stove
One in the bilge
One in the lazerett where the propane locker is going to go
Debbie took this on as smaller hands are better here. She first had to remove the stove cover that slides back. The un-gimbal the stove so it could be tilted forward.
You can see whats left of the old pipe white tape - not much
You can see the beautiful hand holding the fitting :)
The yellow pipe tape
All done - You can see the sensor at the bottom Hmmm need to vacuum that area
Now lets see if the alarms keep going off?
