Look for stainless steel braided gas hose. You might have to go to a gas supplier to obtain it but I doubt the squirrels will be able to chew through it.

A tank is around 150psi. 1st stage of the regulator takes it to 10-15psi. Second stage is around 0.4psi for low flow appliances in the TT. Any hole in the line past the regulator is a low bleed.

Well, let's try this: I came up with a super idea (really?0 for something to cover my LP hose from the regulator to the body of the camper which hopefully will deter the squirrels from chewing on the LP hose. I found a washing machine discharge hose that fit over the LP line but would not fit over the hose clamps I used to patch the two places. I laid the washing machine hose next to the LP hose and marked the washing machine hose where the clamps and connector were. After removing the hose clamps the washing machine hose slipped over the female end of the LP line and the rest of the LP line all the way back to the first clamp holding the LP line under the TT, approximately six feet. I then cut a slit in the washing machine hose to access the connectors, held the slit open while replacing the hose clamps on the LP line. After getting the clamps installed I covered the slits with electrical tape and covered the end of the washing machine hose where it met the female end of the LP line to keep rain out. IF the squirrels choose to chew into this washing machine hose let them have fun. The $8 for the discharge hose is a lot cheaper than a new 1/2" x 25 foot LP line ($180 the best I can find).
