Keep out of sun, wrap with tape or aluminum foil.
Remove stress on hose from sharp bend if possible.
If you can't bend the hose to put it on the tank easily, it's too sharp a bend.

Thanks everyone, these are BRAND NEW. It’s a 2020 and always under a cover. As a matter of fact, this was fine two weeks ago when we last camped. Just funny.

Buy pigtails made by Marshall Excelsior. They will be USA made, including the hose. I buy the steel braided version. You probably have the hose with the reverse flare on the regulator end, and probably 15 inch.

15 inch, green nut, steel braid LP tank pigtail

Better have them made by local propane distributor, they will use better hose.

I didn't know you can have these made locally. I'll check into it.

Thanks!

Looks like something hit this to me? With plastic still on the tank something fell on it or hit it?

That's damaged, not a failure.

No need to rush out to replace it - the pigtail from the other tank should reach if you run that tank empty.
