LP gas line to tank

I have to replace the gas line from the LP tank to the regulator on the pup, this is a 2012 Rockwood 1940. The line cover is frayed and I don't want any problems. The manual states this is an Acme QCC1 type...I found a Camco item that looks like the one but I am bothered by the reviews. Can anyone suggest a good replacement? I believe this is a 20" line. Sorry for those of you that are cold weather bound, we had a great outing in central Florida.

Don't know where your at but, your local propane or natural gas shop could make you a exact replacement. I would go so far to call Ace Hardware....

X2 on a local propane or natural gas shop. They should have all the fittings necessary and make it any length you need. When we had our pup I had an extension hose made because I wasn't crazy about using the RVQ outside grill connected to the side of the camper.

gas line

Thank you! The line is NOT a custom one! I simply want to replace the stock one that goes from the popup to the LP 20 gal. tank. The Forest river manual does not specify any part number except the aforementioned "acme QCC1 type". E-trailer.com listed the Camco one, but it has a lot of negative reviews.

propane line

So I find the threaded barb end to the regulator is 9/16" NOT the 3/8"!! The valve side with the hand-tightened knob fits fine. My pup is a 2012 so what gives? Must be a reason that is the standard equipment size, both hozes are 1/4" I.D. Thank you realebill for the Sturgis products site- the hose I am replacing is also a Sturgis, but they don't list any with that size barb end! Other than a fabber shop (miles and miles away) any suggestions? In any case, I tested the propane operation of the 3 way frig and it works great, much colder than on the A.C. mode and I set it on medium. Thanks again to everyone, this is a great informative site! I love my pup, I don't envy much those big motorhomes, this is nice and cozy and economical for my family- we plan on extensive use this summer so I want to prepare early. Like you, Wiscampsin, I am not crazy about using the stove so near the pup, so I take a Coleman stove I can setup more remotely and it is a good simple backup. I had a full 20 gal. tank to begin the season last summer, and we used the pup stove a lot, and it still has a lot of gas.
