Reese Dual Cam & pipe

I'm was planning on installing the Reese Dual cam on my 2005 CC28' and when looking at a 2004 today I noticed the copper Propane line runs along the underneath of the a frame. The chain mounts that get screwed in are supposed to saddle up underneath the frame where the pipe is. Has anyone installed this on such a unit and did you have to relocate or move the LP pipe to do so? I did not have this problem on my '67. Thank you

I just installed a Reese dual cam on my 31' International. Had to change out to flex hose from the regulator to the gas line under the trailer.
A bigger problem is now I cannot get my Airstream Aluminum tank cover over the gas tanks because the saddle brackets are in the way.

gas line

Nav, do you have any pics or advice on switching to flex line? Where did you connect back to your copper line under the trailer? I'm wondering what I'm getting into ....if its using a wrench to connect/disconnect or if you had to cut pipe. If you used the dual cam with the screw (bolt on) from the sides I'm surprised the saddle interferes. Sorry you have to deal with that, maybe I will too.

I installed the HD Dual Cam on my Classic 25 without any problems. I simply removed one clamp from the propane line and installed the Reese parts. My only problem is that the chain brackets are back a bit too far because I have been too lazy to go get some shorter cklamp screws. There is no interference with the tank cover.

Tin Hut, Sorry, no digital yet. Had to cut the copper pipe based on the length of new rubber hose, which brought the new flared connection a few inches along under the bottom of the coach.

dual cam

John, did you have the chain brackets/saddles that are screwed into the frame or the ones that have the ubolts? Thanks.

I have the HD Dual-Cam in which the arm mount is screwed to the frame, but I am still using my old Drawtite chain tip-up hooks that clamp to the frame. There are no U-bolts. There was no problem in installing either one. With one clamp removed, the propane line could be easily moved down out of the way.

I installed the new Dual Cam HP on our 2004 Safari. No movement of the line was really needed. I did push it out of the way while installing, but as far as removing clips, relocating lines, etc....survey said....buzz....nope.

Engineering is fine and it works well.
