Thanks

Thanks for all the help. I think I will try the Camco evoflex with a zero g for long hookups. I will add a 90 connection and a quick connect. That should fix it.

I have no faith in lock washers. I like to add back-up by double nutting. I have had problems with the nut backing off with a lock washer. Not so with an extra nut on the bottom.
