Help with Propane Gas Line to Stovetop

My husband accidentally put a staple through the gas line from the propane tank to the stove top in our 2015 36LA. It is a 3/8" hose with female flare connectors at both ends. I called Tiffin and they are no longer using that hose and told me that I would have to find some place that would fabricate it. I asked her about the size of the fittings and she said she didn't know. First time that I have called Tiffin and they were of no help and the woman I spoke with was not inclined to help. I finally found a place online that had the hose, but there are several selections for the size and type of end connectors. I know the type of end connector, but not the size. Does anyone know what size of female flare connectors I would need for 3/8" hose? I am not sure if 3/8" on the connector refers to the end that connects to the hose or the size of the opening of the connector.

Ok, I'm going to go out on a limb here , and ask if you've removed the hose and taken it to a local RV supply store ?
This is low pressure hose and should be available , just about anywhere that deals in propane systems.

We removed the hose. Unfortunately, there is no local RV supply store in west Miami. That is why I am trying to purchase online.

In Las Vegas we have a company called House of Hose. They can make any hose. I'm sure you have a hose supply house in your area. Just take them the damaged hose and tell them what it's for. They can repair or make a new one.

Bring it to Lowe's or Home depot hardware department - they have a fitting size display that you can actually screw the piece into to get the proper size to order online.

I moved from Miami several years ago but there two RV supply places I used, K&K that was on Sterling Rd in Hollywood and Campout at SW 240 St and US1. A bit of a drive but either will probably have the hose you need or can order it for you. Good luck.

If it is a copper line and I assume it is just go to a home improvement store or a propane company and buy a coupling, then cut the bad place out and reattach with the coupling.

Take it to West Marine. They carry propane hose with the 3/8 flair fittings.

You could also try Suburban Propane. Gas fittings are left hand thread to prevent from being connected to anything but gas lines.

I don't think left hand threads is the case anymore. The old POL nut is left thread but most of the other threads are standard SAE or NPT.
