Dear RV Doctor:
I have a gas leak in a stove/oven around one of the compression fittings. I have done everything I can think of to fix it. Can I use some high-temp silicone around the tubing on the outside to fix it? —Bob E.
You do not want to use silicone; it will not eliminate a propane leak. In fact, no sealants are permitted at all on propane gas flare fittings or compression fittings. Sealants are only applied to the male threads of pipe fittings, and most certainly, not silicone.
