LP hose melting

I have a 2013 Greyhawk that the main LP hose from the tank to the distribution block was ran right next to the exhaust system and it melted. luckily I caught it before it actually started leaking. I found it when my water heater was not getting any gas. That turned out to be from a kink in the gas line coming from the distribution block.
Has anyone else had such an issue?

I live in the TT world. But as an amateur mechanic, running a propane line within 6" of the exhaust system strikes me as an NHTSA level recall item.

Maybe nudge the RVIA.

Or am I just too much an alarmist?

Have you checked to see if there is a recall?

You may have a one-off manufacturing mistake - but if a whole run of these were manufactured this way I think it would have triggered a recall. If not, I agree with Mike - it should have!

I checked for recalls and found none, I think I'll email Jayco and check with them.
