Need info/opinion on slideout kitchen

I am looking at class Cs and am a bit leary of getting one with the range in the slideout. My concern is the movement of the range connection tubing -- more chances of things happening to the tubing and gas connection. Thanks for your assistance.

I have one in a slide on my fifth wheel and it is attached to a swinging arm that looks to be very secure.

I have never heard of anyone having a problem with the flexible supply hose.

Don't worry

I've had several RVs with a slide out kitchen and the propane hose serving the stove and ice box moved and changed position when you operated the slide. In all cases I could look under the slide and check for wear on the hose. I've never seen any wear that concerned me. But it's a good thought process you have, keep that attitude, check things periodically, you will me fine. Once I was out fishing and came back to find a squrial had eaten through the hose from my 20# propane tank to my Weber Q2000 and my tank was empty. I worry more about varments than the engineering design of my RV. LOL.

On my Heartland Bighorn the kitchen slide had the stove and frig and we never had a problem in 5 1/2 years.
