Flex-Tech Supply Line

One of the main supply lines on my Coachmen Chaparral has been damaged. It is 180" long and is made by Flex-Tech as an assembly, the assembly has two manifolds that it is attached to on either end of the coach. My questions are as follows:
1. How to break the male fittings loose from the manifolds? Left handed thread or right?
2. It appears that the fittings are solid pieces and not a slip joint(for lack of better explanation). So how to reassemble if I get a new assembly.
3. If they are solid connectors how were they assembled at the factory?
4. Can the hose be repaired at the damage area?

Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Should be right tightly and lefty loosely. Only the portable tank connection is different. Looks the same as adding an Extend a stay kit. Regular pipe thread brass fittings.
Propane shop could probably make a new line or repair that one correctly.

Figured it out. I will now be able to call Flex Tech, with label in hand, and order the replacement hose.
