You have a point there Phays.
I tend to forget that when I tighten a propane connection I, being a bit paranoid about leaks in that system, tend to tighten it to the best of my ability....
True story: I once changed tires on a Ford F-350 custom (10,000 pound opiton) and tightened the lug nuts using nothing more than the standard 2-piece wrench ford bolted to the fender.
When that tire picked up a nail we were close to the contract tire store so we limped in, and the mobile tire guy there put his big, and I mean big, air wrench on that sucker... Took forever to get the nut to turn (or so it seemed) I'd tightened it a good many foot pounds of toruqe more than his wrench could un-wrench (Well you hammer long enough and it gives)
That's how I tighten propane fittings too.. TIGHT!
