Regulator and hoses

I am going to have change the hose and regulator on my Hunter Compact ii. I picked up a new tank along with new regulator. Came with hose attached. The connector from the new hose is a 3/8 and the propane pipe on my camper is much larger. Can anyone tell me what type to buy and were to get it??

The connector I have is to small does any one know if there is a adapter? Before I can get the camper license I have to have the Fire Marshall inspect it. I already know my tank is way to old. I'm am just bummed ..why can't things just go smooth?

Hi Deborah,

The adapter that you need is a brass fitting that can be found at a hardware store or Home Depot. Take the new part with you and a photo of the connecting pipe on the trailer. They will give you the proper adapter and teflon paste to seal it.

On my Compact jr. the pipe under the trailer is 1/2" (NPT) National Pipe Thread. My trailer has a hose with 1/2 female NPT on one end and the other end fits the regulator. I was in Lowes Sat. looking at gas fittings and they should have what you need. The gas fittings were in the heating department at that lowes with the winter gas heaters not the plumbing section.
Take your hose to Lowes or your local gas supplier and they should have the fitting you need. Also use pipe dope or teflon tape for gas and check for leaks on all the fittings after you are done.

A "Farm & Fleet" or "TSC" store has a wide selection of propane brass fittings and hoses. The prices are usually good, too.

How in the world can a new tank be way to old?

Did you buy NOS?
