Default Fixed my propane leak

I finally located and repaired my propane leak. (2000 RT 190 Pop) A 4' rubber hose leaked near the end fitting, replaced it. The regulator was bad also. Pictured is the new regulator being tested with a leak "sniffer".

I can't imagine where a four foot rubber propane hose would be in a Roadtrek. From what I see of your pictures you do not have the auxialry propane outlet with second regulator and quick disconnect. The rubber hose is between what two points?

Propane regulators should be replaced every 10 years the regulator vendors say.

Just wondering.

Easiest explanation:
hose 1 = propane tank to "wing" shutoff valve next to fuel inlet.
hose 2 (my affected hose) = "wing" shutoff valve next to fuel inlet to LP regulator.

May we suggest replacing the second hose, too, rather than wait till it leaks?

Propane hoses are time limited as are the rubber parts in a propane regulator. Probably responsible for your leaks. I expect you knew this but some may not.
