Yes you have some good answers sent in to you.
My advise is as the rest have said.
BUT stop using it before you blow yourself up.
We had one come in for repair also but I can't remember what it was.
So go back to whoever is nearest you

The link needs to be http not ftp (at the start).
However, these regs apply to houses and specifically exclude motorhomes. (p7)

It would be nice if the people who put these regs online would do the same for the motorhome gas regs.

And it's not much good for general installations either as the current version of the standard called in law is the 2013 version. (The 2010 version may be used until the of the year).

I'm tempted to say something about pirating movies, music, etc but I think I will refrain.

Was that a snipe at me Minnie? :?

Personally is still can't see. Why there are rules we must obey, but have to pay to know HOW to obey... :-T
Seems like a really bad way for the (informed) consumer to be sure the installer has done their job properly too :-T

Not you in particular, just folk in general who take things that other people (such as installers) pay for. :)

I agree in principal that where a standard is called in legislation there should be a system where people can at least view the standards. The National Fire protection Association in the USA publish the American gas and electrical codes— including NFPA 1192 which is the caravan code. Once you have registered on their website you can view their standards but you can't print. The window you view the standard on is sized so that you can't see a full page at a time and need to scroll down.

This is what Standards NZ should do — it is a compromise between the public's right to know versus protecting the intellectual property of the standards body.

The alternative is to put all the perceptiveness into the actual regulations which are freely available. But that means the "rules" will then be driven by an office in Wellington rather than the industry consensus of a standard—which would you prefer?

Actually, yes! I'd far rather an independent body set the standards, than the (effective) Union of the industry... Thus the rules on things like installing your own solar would fit the law, (under 50v DC) not the industries idea of the law?

In gas, this would be the Califont inside ... Which Challenge Yachts insists IS legally allowed, though the gass installers argue over...
