Ok, that worked. Lol. My first picture upload.

Anybody know the details on this hose?
Im getting symptoms of the oil clogged propane line. Weak range top.
Changed out the range top regulator already.

This hose looks like it might be a low spot where oil and stuff might accumulate.

Ok I will bite


Your having Flow problems, and you have replaced the Low pressure regulator at the tanks already? And now you suspect the hose under the tank bracket connection from copper to the reg is restricted or plugged ?

I guess it's possible, can you flow test it?
Remove it and blow it out?
Not a licensed gas guy so can't help you.

But you could make a water column gauge and test flow in the system up stream and then work back from the tanks.

10 year old rubber in the propane system? Time to replace. Pigtails and hose from regulator get old and cracked. My ‘07 just got a new full set this year as a precaution.

OP:
I was kind of asking “what is this” because I want a new one.
Anybody know the specifics of this propane hose?

BTW, i did disconnect the low end and a few tablespoons of oil fell out. Its not pipe thread on that end. Its the other one... flare? Rounded face iirc.
Pulled it apart a couple weeks ago.

Yes Ultraclassic, I am chasing a propane loss of pressure without owning a meter. Although i have discovered one plumbed in behind the refrigerator.

The tank regulator is only like 4 years old. So after i drained the hose and kinda blew out the lines (canned air. Lol) and that didnt work, I started eye-balling the tank regulator.

So I whacked it.
I opened the cap where the spring adjuster is and jazzed that up and smacked it around.
Pressure came back. Lol

What is this?

“Percussive tuning” as we used to refer to this practice in the Navy technical rates.

A properly delivered kick using a heavy steel-toed boot to deliver the right impact to just the right spot on a recalcitrant computer could do wonders when delivered by a smart tech. I was the only one that could reliably pull this off. (I also knew EXACTLY where the loose cheap connector on the core memory was lurking)

True story, got a brand shiny new computer system on board the ship that even came with all the tools, spare parts, and test equipment. I opened the tool box on the first day and found 7 different kinds of fancy hammers of all kinds, from a soft rubber one to a two-pound sledgehammer. Used every darn one of them to maintain the mechanical and electrical bits of the system.

Yes. Lol. I got a little percussive.
Things are breaking too fast for me to fix them.
