Propane Crossover line

I have a Camco 4 port connector with a 12' rubber crossover hose for propane grill. The hose connection end that screws to the 4 port connector, at hand tight, decided to start leaking at the threads. The leak is small. The hose has a small oring and a flat rubber seal. I cannot find new seal and oring locally. I called Camco today to get replacement parts. They told me that they don't have any parts because the hose comes from China pre assembled, so when I get back to Michigan in March I guess I will start the search for comparable seals. Anyone ever look for and find the needed parts? Maybe Tractor Supply or Lowes.

Try pipe joint compound from Home Depot or Lowes. I always give the threads and seals a coat of compound when connecting an external tank. (Even when the hose is new.) It keeps the seal from drying out, you don't need to make the connection so tight, and makes the removal easier. This would probably work even if the seal and oring were completely missing.

I prefer the brush on type. The stuff in the tubes will seperate and becomes a runny mess. The bottles can be stirred with the brush if it starts to separate. Just apply a generous amount on the male end, snug up the connection, wipe off the excess with a paper towel, check for leaks with a soap and water solution and you should be good to go. A bottle usually last me a few years.
