Outside grill line too short on Rockwood HW276

I just purchased a 2016 Rockwood HW276. The gas line outside is about 6 inches too short to attach to my outside grill. Has anyone else had a similar problem? Anyone know how to fix it easily? I would assume this should be under warranty. Thanks!

The hose from the popup to the grill is too short.

True but if under warranty why should you have to fix it and pay for it too. But my dealer is 5 minutes from my house.

Add 8 inch's of pipe to the end and then reattach the hose.

Why put yourself thru the aggravation of dealing with the RV dealer?

That's horrible! I wonder if it's just kinked or caught on something inside the compartment.

Sometimes, we want to cook further away from the camper so I found this 10-foot gas line extension on Amazon...currently going for $24.72.

I'm not sure if the link will work, but it's called
Camco 57282 10' Propane Quick-Connect Hose

If it's a quick disconnect hose then you can get a short(36" QD hose and just daisy chain the two.
