Propane hose with tank cover

Probably a no brainer.... I just purchased a propane tank cover and was wondering where people put the tank connection hose (since it will not allow the tank cover to go on.) Do you just let it dangle, cable tie it to something, completely remove it, make a cutout in the tank cover, etc.....??

Is this cover for your frame mounted propane tank or a "free standing" tank? I have two 20# tanks on my TT and the cover slides over with no issue. The hose is routed downward so it does not interfere with the cover.

It is the tank it came with on the front (a single tank). It has a bracket holding it to the frame. The line from the TT comes straight across to the top of the tank and hooks on. The line isn't long enough to go down and up from the bottom of the cover.

you could get a propane extension hose. and then run it down and back up

Or get a longer feed hose that allows it to down and back up

That might be the easiest way to go. Thanks for the advice!

My regulator sits much closer to the tanks. The cover fits over everything. Maybe you could modify the bracket to do this.

Surprised Forest River didn't give you enough slack to put the regulator beneath the cover. I have the same cover on my trailer, but for double tanks. The switch over regulator all fits beneath the cover.

I bet if you unbolted the regulator from the trailer wall, you could snake it under the tank cover and bolt it to a frame piece. Nothing to buy.
