Propane hose swelling - because...

... inquiring minds want pictures!!

This is (probably) the original regulator-to-copper propane hose from a 1978 Tradewind.

The gas flow had essentially stopped completely; I had never heard of a hose failing by swelling shut from the inside.

But it did!

Big shout-out to Genes RV & AC Repair in Mesa AZ for sending a quick and smart mobile technician to find it!

Emphasis: All pictures are of exactly the same hose - just different locations on it!

The new one is guaranteed for five years, if I remember right...

He just said, "They do that sometimes..."
