my journy dl 2001 winnie the pooh...! most everything has broken on it. is a bad year.
problem: propane fill assembly leaks
the bruner tank company is gone long time ago. another company purchased something from them but does not have anything left.. no parts, no drawing..
so we removed the fill assembly and float.. it is called a Brown-Valve. it is a standard
acme fill with check valve float that goes into the tank top. this assembly bolts with 4 bolts to the stainless tank flange.
Here is the problem. there is a speci
al O-ring. flat-flat type. 1.54" ID by 2.02" OD and it is 0.10" thick but is 0.23" inches WIDE!!
any one know where you can get this O-ring.. it is not on any standard list.
suburbon propane company happen to have some when i went there to get the
tank fill purged. .he had the o-ring he said. so we put one on and bolted it up.
but it turns out it did not bolt flat flat against the flanges.. and again it leaks.
so i dumped the propane and will see if suburbon has another one. and try to get
the company name that may still make this special size o-ring. suburbons o-ring
is brittle, old, and does not seem to seal.
dont know how many winnies they used this bruner tank upon.! but if you have a winnie pusher 2000 to 2005 you may be stuck with this problem.
