    Propane fitting leak

    I have a 2017 Reflection 303rls. The 96 propane line that runs from one tank to the other has a leak at the passenger side female fitting that screws into the 90 degree male flare fitting that comes off the red regulator. How do I access that hose? From the front compartment or one of the side basement doors. Or do I attach a line to the hose and pull it through to the other side?

    Thx Mark

    I resolved the problem. First the GD parts dept sent me a diagram of the propane line, the fittings on the line did not match. After attaching a rope to the propane line, I pulled it through and was able to see the sticker on the propane line which did not match the number the parts dept gave me. I went to THE PIT STOP in Quartzite and they made me the line which now works perfect.

    Thanks for posting. I have often wondered how I would replace that cross over propane line it it ever started leaking. I'm not sure how to gain access to it or if it is clamped to a wall so it wouldn't just pull out.

    I have replaced the red regulator once and the cross over switch main regulator several times.
    Now I don't move the switch lever on the main regulator when a tank runs out, it is always pointing to the passenger side tank. I do it this way because I have found the more you turn the selector lever, the more the main regulator tends to start leaking around the top where the lever is. On the switch over lever on the main regulator , there is some kind of shaft seal or O Ring in there that starts leaking. Since I stopped turning the switch over lever on the main regulator, I stopped having to replace the regulator because of propane leaks.

    Steven@147, if you ever have to change that 96 line just peel out the grey spray insulation, the line sits in a 2 square tube with no connections in the tube, then attach a small rope to the end of the propane line and pull it through, keep the rope in there until you get the correct fittings, then attach rope to new propane line and pull it through.
