Help replacing LP gas connector

I have a 2009 Fleetwood Highlander popup. I'll save you the long story, but I need to replace a small coupling that connects the pigtail from one of the tanks right where it goes into the Tee and joins with the second tank (this might also be the regulator). After over a dozen stops at local RV dealers, Camping World, gas companies and plumbing companies, no one has been able to tell me the exact name of the coupling or where to find it. I even contacted Fleetwood directly who kindly informed me that they do not provide any support getting replacement parts for their own products. I think this might be called a 1/4" inverted male flare x 3/8" Acme nut, but am not sure. This piece is pretty small (less than an inch long). I've attached a picture showing the broken piece in two parts next to the end of the pigtail it was attached to.

Can anyone tell me what this part is called and ideally where I can get a replacement? Thank you so much in advance.

Take the broken piece apart and carry it to Lowes or a Mobile Home Parts place. Get a fitting that will fit the hole and adapter for your hose.

Thanks for the suggestion. To clarify, I have taken the part to Lowes, Home Depot, True Value, several RV dealers, several gas companies and several plumbing supply stores. None could find a part (or put together several parts) to match it nor could any of them tell me the name of the part to Google it online. I have given up on expecting to find a local store that carries it. I am holding out hope that a smarter person in a forum like this can recognize the item.

The only other thing I can suggest is a new regulator, tee and lines to replace all. May have to fabricate a bracket

hose connector

Are you sure it is not just part of the hose. you need to take hose and all to find the correct stuff. Any mobile home dealer will have that hose.
