Mobile Caravan Gas Certificate

Mobile Caravan Gas Certificate Brisbane Gold Coast Sunshine Coast - Caravan Inspections Checks 


To make your caravan gas certificate easier on the day it is a good idea to run all the appliances, to make sure everything is in working order for the inspection. If an appliance isn't functioning correctly let us know and we will get it fixed.

- When using any Gas System you should pick the biggest and easiest appliance and run that first e.g. the Cook Top or Stove as you can purge the stale gas through the lines easily.

If your caravan was not manufactured in Australia it is a good idea to look at the appliances closely. It will need Australian compliance for each appliance to pass the inspection along with a compliance plate for the installation

The POL valve was originally designed as a metal to metal compression seal, this type must be done up fairly tight.  
However, some connectors are now manufactured with rubber O-rings to further improve the seal. If the O-ring is cracked it will need to be replaced.

In Queensland you are LEGALLY required to supply a Caravan Gas Certificate when transferring ownership or registration details of a Caravan or Camper Trailer. It is the sellers responsibility to supply these certificates when offering the unit for sale, however in real life it is often part of the buyer/seller negotiations who will pay for the Gas & RWC Certificates to be issued.
