    my 1996 lhd hymers gas supply is provided by 2 calor propane bottles each with their own red regulator connected via orange flexi hoses and a threaded t piece connector to a single metal gas pipe in the gas locker. i have noticed that the flexi hose is now showing signs of cracking [the date on it reads 2005,which is when it was imported] i am having trouble finding replacements because of the metal threaded ends , the local caravan /motorhome dealers have lots of fittings but nothing that fits! has anybody had a similar problem ? if so where did you get the hoses from in the end. failing that i was wondering if i could get new hoses made up using the original threaded ends ? can anyone recommend anywhere ? cheers garry

    Down this end of the world I've used a firm called pressure lines they make hoses for hydraulic plant took old hose they matched and made new.
    Have you anyone doing that sort of thing near you.
    They alternatives on ebay were horrendously expensive.

    Try BES in ~Birmingham http://www.bes.co.uk/index.asp they are a plumbing supplier of ours but they sell a great deal of LPG equipment.
    They may well have the hose you require.
