The short propane hose from the changeover valve to the tank on the passenger side of our Cyclone is leaking from the rear of the knob. When I plug in the part number listed on the tag at the Fairview Fittings site, I get a range of products that are close, but based on the description, none of them have the right-angle fitting like the one I'm replacing... any clue on how to order the exact replacement hose with the right-angle fitting? Thanks!

If you have a CW or RV dealer near you, take the hose and have them match it up. If there is a place near you that makes machinery (hydrolic) hoses, they could either fix yours or make you a new one. Have you called HL and with your VIN# asked if they have one in stock??

You might try a place like Tractor Supply or even a good sized hardware store. Propane hoses, fittings, regulators etc are stocked by a lot of different stores

The fitting on the end of the hose should come off. Looks like a standard 1/4" pipe thread elbow.

Gas piping has specific teflon tape as well.

Or, Oatley now has a universal HD tape.

Duane, you rock! I thought that the right-angle fitting was all one piece and crimped on, but the right-angle is an adapter that threads on... a piece of cake to replace, thanks!
