Hi Guys!

Tanda, I don't have a part number. I drove to out local dealer, he only sold them in a set (a male and a female). Given they are sold together, I knew they were compatible, so bought the set for $36.

Came home, and started to switch the RV female, to install the new one from the set I just bought and thought,,,, wait let me try the new male I got, just for giggles. Plugged it in to the female on the coach that previously was not working, and Whaa Laaa I got gas!!! The new male I just bought in the set allowed gas, the ones I got with my kit (hose and male fittings) to hook up my grill did not.

I took the males (1 I had just bought that worked, and 2 I had purchased from amazon with my hose kit) and compared.

The difference is the one that worked with the RV female, the tube the gas flows thru in the male was smaller. The one of this type I have, looks like there is a sleeve inside the male fitting tube. This inner sleeve, catches on the little plunger in the female when you insert and open the plunger/valve.

I just learned from you guys the names and part numbers. No mention of that on the package I bought. He just sold them in a set, only had 1 kind.

I went to the store thinking the female was bad, turned out the male fittings I had were not compatible.

Tim, for me the correct ones are "Model 5LPN". The one you need depends on your RV. As Lloyd said, they look different. Apparently, the 5LPN male will work with the 250 female, but the 250 male will not work with the 5LPN female. Since I didn't know there were 2 different kinds, and it's made me crazy for the past 2 weeks, I'm posting photos to save others similar frustration:

Yes, that is it!! Great job with the photos Tanda!

I thought this was going to be a 15 min job, 1/2 day later and I had gas flowing, but was still scratching my head!

Live and learn. Hope this thread helps others avoid the confusion! Your pics will be very valuable!

I am cooking with gas now!
