Gee.. I fully agree.. on mine the plug is firmly in the socket as it were. And of course I said that way up-thread.

Remove hose, replace with plug which can easily be seen in photo hanging right where it should be when the hose is in place.

And you are right, the dealer should have done that, and explained the use of the system. The Prior owner should have done it before turning it over to the dealer (Of course then we would have had a "What is this hose for" post) So there is lots of blame to go around.

But the O/P needs to remove the hose and put the plug in place.

The OP decided to remove the Extend-a-Stay, but just in case some other members search on this, here's an edited picture pointing to the plug many others have been pointing out:

The hose unscrews counterclockwise and this plug screws in (it's got normal threads, not some special counterclockwise thread gas thing).

I've been using the same thing for years except I leave my hose hooked up all the time. I have a female POL Cap on the end that goes in the propane bottle. When I hook up the bottle, I turn off the main tank, unscrew the POL Cap and connect the hose to the bottle. Even with the leaky check valve in the hose very little propane escapes while I do this.

That was my next question, who has the thread type and size, so thanks. I will be doing the same thing.

The dealer never should have let the unit off his lot with that hose hooked up. The hose should have been removed and replced with the plug.
