Propane Conversion

Mark Erdos
 

 

Cream Puff was converted to a USA propane fitting long before our ownership. In getting ready for the Pacific, I understand we will not have access to propane nor USA fittings since most of the islands are French.

 

Can anyone recommend where and what to buy that would enable us to convert cooking gas to the French system. (I probably should have thought about this while in Martinique). We currently have access to Amazon (USA) as we have a guest (aka mule) arriving who can tote stuff for us to Panama. Or, we can just order from Amazon/eBay Europe

 

I am thinking this might work but not having a French tank to look at I am unsure: https://www.ebay.com/p/Tank-Adapter-ACME-Propangas-Gasflasche-Campingflasche-LPG-Autogas-Camping/18006219633?iid=272888174834&chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=272888174834&targetid=474173630789&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=2840&poi=&campaignid=1669934834&mkgroupid=65058350339&rlsatarget=pla-474173630789&abcId=1139296&merchantid=6296724&gclid=Cj0KCQjwsvrpBRCsARIsAKBR_0IOdmlLIs7msQF0NVSSsq_paqcVHY1jmMe7oi6RpC4ZYq3TE031dsUaAjS8EALw_wcB

Do I also need to replace the regulator?

 

Thanks!

 

 

With best regards,
