68' Overlander: What line from regulator to main supply

I am replacing my ancient regulator (which leaks when I switch tanks) with a new Cavagna automatic two tanker. I am also replacing the rigid pig tails with modern green handled rubber ones. All of which I have on hand. I also would like to replace the semi rigid line from the regulator to the main copper supply trunk line with a modern equivalent.

My question is, what is that line? I thought it might be a domestic appliance gas line (yellow Home Depot type) but that doesn't seem right. I realize there is a simple answer, but I haven't definitively found it on line. Here are photos of the whiteish line I am talking about. Thanks for weighing in!

Ummmm... that looks a lot more like a water heater connecting line that the previous owner jerry-rigged. It is, in my ever-so-humble but occasionally correct opinion, very UNSAFE!

I'd do some more research on getting the correct propane-rated line. Your propane distributor is the best place to start.

Seriously, they'll custom-make a hose for you.
