Project completed.

I picked up a regulator from Tractor Supply Store (I had a store credit there I've been searching for a way to use). The RV dealer in town keeps a large parts inventory. I know I paid more for the hoses, but on the plus side, I KNOW all the fittings are correct, and he even showed me where to put the LP gas sealent tape. (I would have assumed every connection, but I was wrong, it ended up only being where the regulator screws in).

Took the threaded rod off, and put the whole smash together.

Next week, I'll go back and get the fiberglass / plastic propane cover he has. Again, it a couple dollars more at the camper place, but he said if it didn't fit, he'd take it back opened.

My propane tanks hold downs are like these google photo imagee. I have the bar across both tanks under the wing nut. This is where I have drilled a hole thru both the wing nut and the bar to use a long lock shaft to better secure the propane tanks from thief.

My regulator and propane selector hangs off the other side side.

Here's what I'm dealing with. Added the correct mounts now the cover won't fit due to the lines being to short. I either need a longer bottle hose, or a longer regulator supply hose and move the regulator under the cover onto the supplied mount. It's currently mounted to the camper front and will leave 4 holes. I can't find the correct sized supply line to the regulator anybody know what size it is?

That is an interesting dilemma.

How time / money do you want to spend?

Cheapest option is to find the supply hose. (Mine was 11 dollars), and relocate your existing regulator to the included stand. Use a little sealant to seal up the holes. (Silicon? I'm sure people have opinions on what's best for your material). At this point, your Bottle hose might be TOO long, so you might need shorter one. (So maybe NOT the cheapest option)

Easiest option is get a longer bottle hose. The bottle hoses appear are more expensive. (The 18" inchers I got were like 15 dollars, but I see on Campers world 30 inches for 20 bucks) (Finding those hose seems to be really hard, so maybe NOT the easiest option)

Expensive option is:
Thow away everything and do what I did (All of my stuff was broken, so I had to anyways). New supply hose long enough, to put a new auto change over regulator on the mounting bracket (Some of the regulators are already mounted), and two new short pigtails. I got 18", but if I did it again, I'd go with 12".

Here's the only supply hose I've found online:

Don't know if that's long enough.

I bought mine from a local RV dealer's part shop.

So what the RV Dealer taught me, Flare threads do NOT need LP pipe wrap (Yellow Tape). Pipe threads DO need LP pipe wrap. For me that ended up only being the regulator.

Don't forget to check with a soapy solution looking for leaks when you're done.

Oh, to replace everything, it was about $100.
