This is where my propane lines go to different appliances. If you look at the fitting enclosed in the bluebox please give me some suggestions on how to lossen the fitting going into the box. I can't bear down on it extremely hard because I am afraid I am going to rip the whole thing off. But I cannot even budge it.. Also what type/ size fittings on on the end of that hose..I need to block that end off to narrow down a leak.. Thanks all

Looking at it, I would try putting a big crescent wrench on the manifold (or vice grips if it's not square on the back side. And then you can pull or push against that with the wrench on the fitting.

"Flare nut" wrenches will reduce the chance of stripping the "nut" on the hose.

I was looking on a forrest river forum and someone had posted a photo of his manifold, he stated that those fittings are "fixed connections" In the manifold and that in order to unscrew them you have to take the manifold off and turn manifold. I thought these were swivel connections? If not then unscrewing them would be impossible while on the coach. Any idea? Thanks

OR disconnect hose at the appliance so hose can be turned

S/B 3/8" fitting
*remove the plug on manifold and check size

Many newer manifolds are push to release and the mechanism is very hard to see.
