Advise for updating/replacement LP Line and Regulator

I replaced my refrigerator with the same brand and same size on my 1975 Argosy 20ft MH and want to also replace my Lp gas line and regulator. What size do I need and where would you recommend to purchase. Camping just around the corner! Thanks

If you are replacing the gas line you will most likely replace it with soft copper. If so you will need a flaring tool to make the flares on the pipe. Depending on how many things will be on the gas line. If you are supplying a heater, ref., and stove you should run a 1/2 in. line from the hose coming off the regulator and branch off with 3/8 in. to each item.

You can buy the copper and tool at any Big Box store or plumbing supply dealer.

I would check with a propane supply house for the regulator for reasons of cost. If not there any RV dealer will have it.
