The bottle holder is secured to the a frame of the caravan via bolts or welding and must with stand 5 times the weight of the bottle in all directions. Additional insulation between the gas bottle and holder shall be provided, most swap and go bottles come with it.  

Gas Leak on POL fitting.

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.

These Fridge vents are fitted to most Jayco Campers manufactured prior to 2012

e.g. Eagle, Swan, Penguin, Flamingo, Dove

Having this vent open does not comply and must be capped off to meet compliance.

The Vent on the Left has been capped off from the under side. 

Here is the inside of a cupboard where the fridge is, you can see the new piece of MDF that has been cut to suit a hole that was there. Now the fridge has been room sealed correctly
