The to-do list for today listed the 12 volt LNG Propane gas switch, detector and solenoid diagnosis for the stove and oven aboard Encore. I almost ordered a new solenoid before the trip, but am glad I held off. Seems the weak link in the circuit is the detector/horn (top right) and has unfortunately been re-engineered by Trident Marine. I’m sending an email for advice but like most out of date components, suspect they’ll want me to install a new setup?

For now, I’m glad the solenoid still works so I’ve disconnected the gas detector … let’s just hope we don’t go BOOM! We’ll see.

  • Well … at least they replied:

    Rich,
    The gas control system you have is an older model, which we stopped producing 10 years ago. Therefore, we have no replacement parts or repair parts. We have since produced a new gas control system but these parts are not compatible with the old system. We have no help for you, sorry.
