good point..be sure they are rated for high pressure lp. these are teflon lined, but they were very vague as to spec.

The hose you show is the same hose used on race cars for brake hose. SS cover over nylon core, very durable, you can get various hoses and fittings at "aeroquip" and other race hose suppliers.

Went to the local Propane Store / Supplier, where my tanks get filled, and bought SS steal hose with the correct fittings on the hose. Did not have to have one made.
It does keep the squirrels from feeding on the hose. My tanks and hose are behind close doors ont the 5er and the squirrels still can find them.

Squirrels? Seriously! I know ground hogs will eat the hardware but squirrels usually just mess up their accommodation with produce. Fascinating...

BTW, the SS hoses also keep the ultraviolet off the hose. If exposed to sunlight that is the most damaging thing long term...

Rodents (squirrels) WILL eat through the braiding. I know this for a fact. I have hard-piped many a customer's gas grill due to this.

kandl - down here is SW Georgia, squirrels will eat the plastic off the wiring in the outside building if it is exposed where they can get to it. We have had a couple make the mistake eating plastic off both wires and those we find, fried.

Seriously Squirrels.

Come to think of it...

A very long time ago, while on business at Tyndall AFB, and while sharing some cold ones with a MSgt that was posted there, we somehow got onto the subject of destructive critters and he was impressing upon us how squirrels in Florida were more destructive than alligators. We thought it was a cute story but soon after returning to the frozen north, forgot all about it.

Dang! He was right all along.

That's crazy! I wonder if they're reacting to the mercaptan in the gas.
