LP Gas Container Overfill

Never allow your propane tank to be filled above the maximum safe level as indicated by the fixed liquid level gauge.
Do not allow the visible gauge to be used for filling. Overfilling the propane container above the liquid capacity indicated on the container, could allow liquid propane to enter the system that is designed for vapor only creating a hazardous condition.
The following warning label has been placed by the propane container.Jayco Alante 2023 LP Gas Container Overfill User Manual 02

Propane Regulator

Warning
Propane regulators must always be installed with the regulator vent facing downward. Regulators that are not located in baggage compartments have been equipped with a protective cover. Make sure the regulator vent faces downward and (if applicable) the cover is in place to minimize vent blockage that could result in excessive gas pressure causing fire or explosion.

Single stage regulator
Some models are equipped with a single-stage regulator.

Two-stage regulator

The two-stage regulator has the only moving component in the propane system. Its sole function is to reduce the pressure from the propane containers to a safe and consistent low operating pressure. The first stage reduces the container pressure to 10-13 lbs. The second stage reduces the 10-13 lbs. of pressure further to an operating pressure of 11” W.C. (water column) or 6.35 oz. of outlet pressure to your appliances.
The second stage is adjustable and will need to be adjusted by your dealer or qualified pro-pane service technician for optimum performance (this adjustment should always be made with a properly calibrated manometer).

If the pressure is too high, it affects performance and safety; if the pressure is too low, your appliances will not operate correctly.
If your recreation vehicle is equipped with the “automatic” two-stage regulator, with both cylinders full of propane, turn the lever on the regulator towards the cylinder you wish to use first. This will be the “supply” cylinder and the other the “reserve”. Slowly open both cylinder valves. The indicator on top of the regulator will turn bright green. When the cylinder becomes empty, the indicator will change to bright orange. Turn the regulator lever to the side of the “reserve” cylinder and the green signal should return. You may now remove the empty cylinder to have it refilled without interrupting the flow from the full bottle. After filling the cylinder, connect the pigtail hose and slowly open the bottle valve.
Refer to the manufacturer’s pamphlet included in your warranty packet and follow all safety instructions and warnings listed.Jayco Alante 2023 LP Gas Container Overfill User Manual 01

Propane Use and Safety

  1. Propane is a colorless and odorless gas that, in its liquefied state, resembles water. An odorant (usually a sulfur compound) is added as a warning agent. If you smell propane within the vehicle, quickly and carefully perform the procedure listed on the propane system label. This label has been placed in the vehicle near the range for models equipped with a propane system. When a propane container is low, there may be a concentration of an onion or garlic-like odor, which can be mistaken for a propane gas leak. After the propane container has been refueled, the odor will usually disappear. If not, turn off the valve(s) and have the propane system inspected by your dealer or qualified propane service representative.

Propane Leak Test

Leaks may be found easily with a soapy water solution. Do not use a solution containing ammonia or chlorine when locating leaks. These products are corrosive to copper gas lines and brass fittings, which could result in the deterioration of the copper and brass components. Apply the soapy solution to the outside of the gas piping fittings. If a leak is present, the soapy solution will “bubble” at the leak point. If a leak is indicated, shut off the propane system valve(s) and contact your dealer or qualified propane service representative immediately.

Never use an open flame to test for a propane leak. Do not check for leaks using products that contain ammonia or chlorine; these products can cause cracks to form on the metal tubing and brass fittings.

Using the Propane System
Use the following steps for propane operation:

  1. Close ALL burner valves, controls, and pilot light valves.
  2. Open the main valve in the propane tank slowly to avoid a rush of propane vapor through the excess flow valve, causing propane to “freeze-up.” Should you experience propane “freeze-up”, close the main valve and wait 15 minutes before trying again.
  3. Listen carefully as propane begins to flow. If a hissing noise is heard for more than one or two seconds, close the main valve and contact your dealer to have the propane system tested.
  4. Light the appliances as needed and directed in the appliance manufacturer’s owner manual located in the Warranty Packet.

Keep the propane container valves closed at all times unless you are using the propane gas system or are having the propane container filled.
Make sure that you read and fully understand ALL safety requirements for handling and operating of the propane system.
The propane system must be handled with care. If you have any questions or concerns, consult with your dealer and/or the specific appliance manufacturer.

If you have double cylinders on your recreation vehicle, use only one at a time. Otherwise, the propane supply will be drawn equally from both cylinders until the supply has been totally exhausted. Using one cylinder until it is empty and then using the second cylinder will allow you to fill the empty cylinder at your convenience without running out of propane.

Cooking With Propane Gas

Warning

  • Do not turn gas range burner controls to ON and allow gas to escape before lighting.
  • Do not use portable fuel-burning equipment (i.e., wood and charcoal grills or stoves) inside the recreation vehicle.

Unlike homes, the amount of oxygen supply is limited due to the size of the recreation vehicle. Proper ventilation when using the cooking appliance(s) will help avoid the danger of asphyxiation.
It is especially important that cooking appliances not be used for comfort heating, as the danger of asphyxiation is greater when the appliance is used for long periods of time.

FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.
These warning labels are located in the cooking area to remind the user to provide an adequate supply of fresh air for combustion.Jayco Alante 2023 LP Gas Container Overfill User Manual 03
