Propane Pigtails Source
 
Need some help. I searched and read through a number of posts about the pigtails running from my automatic propane switchover to the 2 30# tanks on my trailer. Still can't find a source. I need a replacement for a Marshal Gas Controls Flexible Hose Model A4 PN HP424, 12 Inches. If anyone knows where I can find this please let me know. From other conversations it sounded like Airstream can't supply them so I didn't really check. Will try tomorrow.
Would appreciate hearing from you. DH

You will not find that exact part number. Since Marshall is now Marshall Excelsior, the numbers changed. No longer USA made.

What you need to know before ordering is the type of connection threads into the regulator (NPT or reversed flare)

The connector nut to the tank is Acme.

When I changed mine I used hoses a couple inches longer than the originals. This made alignment easier when connecting and disconnecting when refilling the tank.

This is the brand I used because they are made in USA. (and Canada) And, they have all of the built in safety features (see video at weblink below)
Maybe this is what you need? https://www.etrailer.com/Propane/MB-...100473-12.html

ps:
The rubber diaphragm inside the regulator has a life limit. If 10 years or more old, time to change

I looked up my order. This is what I used:

:) Hi, the local propane store made new hoses for me.

I bought new ones a couple of years ago from an eBay vendor. I had no trouble finding what I needed.

The problem seems to be 1/4 inch flared vs. the stock 3/8 flat connector to the regulator. How did you all manage that? With some sort of adaptor? I haven't seen anything on this yet. Thanks again. DH.

Done. I gave up and went to the 1/4 inch with and adaptor. Finding the right adaptor was a real chore. Most people can't figure out the different types of threads. DH.

Ok, I see you found a solution. I was about to recommend your local 'fireplace shop'; I've had a few projects and they were most helpful.

(Our house is plumbed for propane for the range top, for an outside firepit, and will soon have the fireplace converted.)
