I need to relocate my propane tanks a few inches forward. There are a couple reasons for this.
1) The vinyl stock cover hasn't fared too well and needs replacement because it rubs up against the retaining bracket for my W/D hitch, so it's just been shredded. This also causes the retaining brackets to, IMHO, put too much pressure on the tank itself and 2) if I'm going to replace it, I might as well get one of those hard plastic covers that will last a little longer and look nicer.
Unfortunately, the stock hose is too short (looks to be maybe 30 inches or so) to handle the increased distance AND the need to run vertically under the cover's side, so I'd guess I need to get one that is about 42 inches to account for both moving the tanks a few inches, and making sure it's long enough to come in to the new cover from the bottom. I'm guessing that non-custom lines probably come in 5' lengths, which I can work with.
Anyone know what type of hose I might need to get?
I see the following on Amazon, and I'm guessing one of these is the proper replacement/extension:
Amazon.com: Camco 59883 5' Propane Appliance Extension Hose - 1/4" Male NPT x 1/4" Female NPT: Automotive
Amazon.com: Camco 59045 5' Propane Extension Hose: Automotive
(I don't want to call my dealership - they frankly treat customers like crap and give condescending answers to any inquiry - they only stay in business because they are the only game in town)
