Which LP Hose to hook up external bottles

Stay-A-While Deluxe from Camping World is installed.

The purpose is to hook up portable 20# LP tank so we don't have to move the
"beast" every time we need propane. This is NOT to use with BBQ grill, we will shut off main valve and turn on portable tank.

PROBLEM: Hose is too short -- only 5' that came with the kit.

1) Is there someone that makes an extension to the hose we have? If so, where would I find it? Is it safe to extend a hose?

2) If we need to order a complete longer hose, what do I order? Any suggestions of where I should order it from?


Thanks guys!

When I needed a longer hose on mine, I went to a local propane service office. It took them less than 10 min to make a hose up the exact length I wanted and the price was very reasonable.

After 45 years in the pipe trades, teaching for 25, I can assure you Teflon tape is just fine for joining gas pipe. Pipe dope and Teflon's purpose is that of a lubricate, not a sealant.

2X on Glenn and Kathy's post #3. Take in the hose that is too short so they can see what each end is to look like.

They are lubes, agreed... However, I really meant to make sure the Dope or tape you use is for gas (yellow - high density) and not simply Grey or the very common White Tape.
