Where did you find that yellow propane extension hose? i went looking for one at my local hardware store, but they only had 1/2" and 5/8" fittings on the end. I think I need 3/8.

Please note that the yellow flex gas hose shown in the photos is NOT rated for RV use. It is only to be used in fixed installations, such as a home, where there is no ongoing movement as you have in an RV. It is very thin, and the vibrations of the RV will cause it to crack or break off. Conventional copper, with flare fittings, is the only thing that should be used and rather than a flair nut coupling a new piece of copper should be run to the exterior in one piece with the only flair connection inside at the furnace itself. The coupling should be outside. You ask "why"? The flare nuts have a tendency to crack and then the pipe will leak. The fewer the better inside.

I am not crying "wolf" here, this yellow flex pipe is not a supply pipe that should ever be used in an RV.
