I have a friend who would like some recommendations for a local Canberra or Queanbeyan plumber who does water and gas plumbing in motorhomes or campervans.
They brought an Atwood 32 litre hot water service and want it professionally plumbed. They know enough to do the water, and have asked for my help with that but they won’t touch the gas.
Probably a wise thing given gas’s ability to explode and suffocate. He has called a plumber before, but that plumber didn’t even know the difference between 4 eighths and 5 sixteenth pipe, which is a small but significant difference.
That plumber piss farted around for over two hours, cut the end off an existing gas supply pipe which would have been perfect for attaching a flexible hose to the stove then when my friend pointed that out to them, the plumber started to insult him saying my friend was an office worker and didn’t know what he was talking about.

At that point both me and my friend asked that plumber to leave. It was obvious that he really did not know what he was doing, and that he was damaging what was already in place.
So, we need a plumber in Canberra who can and has plumbed caravans, motor homes or campervans, is confident in plumbing gas appliances in those vehicles, can also do water pipe plumbing and has polite customer service.
