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!

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.

Thanks for the link on the gas hose. I had questioned about using the grill so close to the camper so we got the longer hose. Now we have both and like the options.

In my Rockwood they coiled up and fastened the hose to the wall behind the fireplace, I uncoiled and and it is plenty long enough now.
