Take care with portable gas appliances
2 May 2017
We Kiwis love a road trip, and heading off on holiday with the caravan.
Remember, though, never to use portable or mobile gas appliances, such as gas lanterns or cabinet heaters, in caravans or motorhomes. These appliances significantly increase the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Camping appliances like gas lanterns are designed and certified for outdoor use only.
Cabinet heaters should never be used in a caravan or motorhome as they are high capacity appliances and require greater air volume than is available in most caravans or motorhomes.
