Default Rubbing LP gas line pics added

Just picked up my new X160WB last weekend. Sold Aliner Friday afternoon, picked up fun finder Saturday morning, only a few hours of trailer withdrawal.

Sunday started putting insect screening on upper frig vent and I found the LP gas line to the stove top, rubbing against the heat baffle above the frig and below the stove,The short line also ripped the heat shield from it's mounting.

I took it back to the dealer Tuesday and they did a nice job fixing it. We looked at another X160 they had and that one was rubbing also.

I think this is something 160 owners should check. Can't wait to get it out camping

First picture is the heat shield pulled down from bad routing of LP gas line, I added tape to stop rubbing

Second picture is the way it should look, the gas line is on the left and over the heat shield to the stove

Wow, that could have been a disaster. I don't have a 160 but I'm going to check mine anyway. Thanks for posting.

Default gas line

I have a new 189fds, and I will check mine out as soon as I know what exactly you are talking about, and I have the photo reference. Am I suppose to put a bug screen up somewhere? I was reading an RV magazine that had hints, and here is a great one I am going to do. You get a little mesh filter and put it on the end of the fridge hose and another hose (can't remember which one) anyway the reason is to keep the bees from starting a nest in the hose. They suggested to glue on the filter, I plan to use a zip tie. Thanks for posting the photos. Anyone want to buy a T@B? sbb 8 nights in 2010 with 3 more coming next week.
