I came home the other day and found that squirrels had chewed about 3 feet of my propane line on my month-old TT. The hose runs from the regulator back under the camper and it's 20 feet long. I repaired the 15 feet that runs under the trailer. My problem is that I now need 5 to 6 feet of stainless steel braided propane hose 1/2" diameter with 1/2" flare fittings (one side male, the other female).
I want the braided line so the critters don't destroy it and waste another 40lbs of propane. I can only seem to find the hoses with 3/8" flare fittings and I want to match the new hose to what I already have. We have a trip coming up and I need the propane to work.
Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks,
John

Hire a 12 year old with a 22 or you will be fixing it again.

The black pipe is a future project but it’s the short hose I’m having trouble finding. The existing has 1/2” fittings and I don’t know if restricting down to 3/8” will affect the stove and fridge further down the line. I’d get one made but I don’t know where to go.

Go to your nearby propane dealer. They can make up what ever you want provided it is legal for propane.

Maybe you could use two 3 foot dryer connectors. Scroll down on this page to dryer connectors and they have multiple lengths to 5 feet. You may have to adapt ends. I'm sure there is something out there. Good luck.

Damm, if you had only got that on video! Love to see the face of that little bugger when that popped!!
Not braided, but perhaps your local welding supply house will have propane torch hose and you'll only need barb's and clamps for the splice. If we're lucky, California will not have messed with what they make welding torch hoses out of, unlike edible hippie hoses they have in vehicles now.
But do be careful "rigging" up a hose for flamable gas. [emoticon]

Thanks for the replies. The propane dealer that I have used for 30 years is no longer around. They were always my go to and I really didn’t know of any others. I found a couple between home and work so I’ll try that tomorrow.
Thanks Again
