Propane Hose Replacements

What site do you guys go to for rubber replacement hoses with fittings for the LP tank to the regulator? I'll be replacing my regulator and should replace the hoses at the same time.

Even from a dealer the hoses aren't terribyly expensive...

And I replaced Regulator without changing hoses, and had to then go to a shop to find the propane leak that my handiwork had created.. FLexing and removing hoses (that were elderly..) created a crack and led to the small leak I could smell but not find..

Yes you will want to replace them also. Mostly so you won't have to get a wrench out every time you want to fill them up.

Click here to see the hose flaired end.

Click here to see the hose straight end.

Click here to see the Regulator.

Is there a source for the old style hard lines? My 67 has one hard(metal) and it is much nicer than the rubber line. The sun does not rot it like the rubber line. Thanks, John

It would require plumbing tools or a plumber to make those these days.

Diesel1,
If you want to do hard copper lines from the tanks to the regulator you can get all the soft copper coil pipe, brass flare fittings, and flaring tools that you will need at Home Depot, Lowes, or the like. Some people shy away from propane line repairs, but it is relatively simple and if you take your time they are perfectly safe. If you tackle them yourself just remember to leak test any new connections with windex or soapy dishsoap water. Any leaks will appear as growing bubles.

Thanks for the links for the flexable LP rubber hoses. Once I get those parts ordered and installed, I'll be just about ready to hit the road again.

Thanks, I have the flaring tools but the one original line I have is not flared. It has a neat little machined fitting that looks to be silver soldered to the line, then the acuall threaded nut rotates behind the soldered fitting.The end that goes into the regulter does not turn on the line, it is soldered fast. It is a very tidy setup. Adios, John

Hard copper lines, connecting the LPR regulator to the bottles, was outlawed many years ago.

Primary reason was fatigue cracking.

The rubber hoses should be replaced when there are "ANY" signs of cracks in the rubber.
