Today we're going to be taking a look at the MB Sturgis Propane Hose Assembly. This hose is typically used on RVs and travel trailers to connect a two-stage regulator to the permanent gas piping system. The inner diameter of the hose measures 38ths of an inch. It's a thermoplastic construction that's strong, durable and flexible. On this end we're going to have a 1/2" female flare swivel connector. On the other end we're going to have a 3/8 " MPT connector, that's stands for Male Pipe Thread. This assembly measures 48" long. The hose features a temperature range of -40* Fahrenheit up to 140* Fahrenheit. Maximum pressure rating is 350 PSI.

Great service and high quality merchandise. Those are the reasons I use etrailer for my parts.



by:

It is nice to get the hose I needed with the exact fittings so I didn't have to source adapters, etc. Good quality and fast service. What is not to like?



by:

Went on with no issues. Good quality. I replace regulator while I was at it. Should be done every 10 years


Comments
After 1 year still doing its job. The hose that connects to the nipple does not swivel which make it a pain to put on. Other than that Im glad I got ir.

I think the pricing was excellent the delivery time was probably better than anyone else I have dealt with. And I loved that I was kept informed of the status of the shipment and order. Great company I will definitely be using again and highly recommend.


Comments
The product is continues to be excellent

I needed a longer hose to complete my conversion from single to dual tanks on my camper. The hose appears to be of good quality.
The staff at etrailer is great! Very helpful and courteous.
Will continue checking here first for my needs.


Comments
No complaints. The hose integrity is still good. No cracks or leakage.

by:

Reasonable price, super speedy shipping and perfect fit. My only suggestion would be to show a ruler/ measurement on the product photo, confirming the diameter of the ends. The female end actually measures 3/4" inside diameter, which threw me off a bit when replacing my old hose. Had to run to Lowes with the hose to confirm my old hose was actually 1/2" female fitting.


Comments
The hose was an inch longer than the old ones. Was a bit of a trick to position the propane tanks so they attached cleanly and the bends in the hoses didnt rub on the cover while traveling. Otherwise, they have stayed in good shape and working as expected.

Product was as advertised. The only concern was the long delivery time, two weeks. That wasn't so horrible in and of itself, just that I buy a lot of items on line and most cases the delivery time is much shorter.

An interesting aside and no reflection on e trailer it turns out my ancient travel trailer (1969) had a different saw gas pipe where gas service enters he trailer, but the counter lady here in Tucson had the right adapter for 5 bucks. Which works out fine. I believe she said the trailer side is 1/2 inch pipe thread and the hose is 1/2 inch propane thread, but she had the adaptor so I'm a happy camper. Sorry for The t.m.i. Maybe next customer with ancient vintage trailer may benefit from my tale.



by:

Every order I have placed has been what I've ordered and either arrived on time or early. Also Customer service is outstanding. Thank you e-trailer for being my go to site for everything trailer or RV.



by:

Exactly fits like my old part



by:

Great fit great price



by:

After a year of use, the hose emits the propane smell. It is enough to smell it from inside the RV. I must now replace the hose.



by:

I recently bought a propane hose 3/8 male to 3/8 female from etrailer. It will be used to go from a 100 lb. propane tank to a copper house feed. It fit perfect but what impressed me was how well it was made and best of all it was made in America. Definitely built to last. Helpful people to work with.



by:

I purchased this hose to connect a 5 kw Honda gen set to a 12" (low pressure) propane regulator. This is the ideal combination of components for this application.The slightly larger hose is needed (1/2' vs. 3/8") to act as a reservoir given the lower pressure fuel supply. 3/8"mpt is a standard for the regulators.

A well constructed hose, ideal for the application.



by:

I love the web site. I could see a 360 view of the part and easily get all of its specifications. I was sure the ends were the right ones to fit my trailer. There was even a short video about the part. The price was very competitive and once I ordered the part, it was shipped right away. I chose the economy shipping and of course, the Post Office misdirected the package and it took 2 days longer than expected to arrive, but if I needed it faster, I could have chosen an express delivery for some additional cost.

I needed a replacement hose because rodents ate through my old hose. I wonder if this part is less palatable to rodents?


Comments
you might consider some of our wire loom # 39035. This is a 10 foot section of it, and it is 38 diameter so it should work for your propane hose, just cut to fit. Maybe if there is one more layer on there it may make it less appealing to the silly critters.

John was very quick in answering my questions.He suggested the parts I needed and I bought them. Delivery was fast and everything worked as planned!!

I used this on my food trailer. Unfortunately it wasn’t big enough to handle everything. This was caused by a lack of research on my behalf

Works fine, has to cover it with a SS flex sleeve, squirrels ate the first one. I've been trapping them and sending them to squirrel heaven ever since.



by:

Speedy delivery and service as always. Wyoming winter caught up to my outdoor projects so the planned installation has been moved to the spring.

This product has been worry free for a year now, no cracks,no leaks,no problems.

Christian B. has been extremely helpful through the process of parts ordering.

I actually purchased this hose for a vacuum/pressure rig for casting resin in a pressure vessel. This hose was the only one I could find that had the proper ends to work with both the vacuum pump and the vessel, and it works perfectly!



by:

Updated all the lines on our 20yr old camper so far no complaints with the new set up ...



by:

I search all the sores around me for this size no one had it. I order Sunday got it Wednesday. Put it on perfect. Will definitely order from them again.



by:

etrailer is great. They have great product descriptions and review videos so that I know exactly what I am buying and how it will fit my needs
I recently received a propane hose from etrailer that had been mis-packaged and therefore was the wrong length. They quickly sent out a replacement hose and now I have what I need.
Thanks a lot to Bryan and the crew at etrailer.



by:

Just bought a used 5th wheel and hose was leaking and went to local rv repair shop and was out of hose. I ordered it and saved money and was delivered quickly and I would recommend them......



by:

Propane supply hose delivered in 2 days. Haven't installed it yet but it looks right. $15 less than the RV store (the only sticks and bricks store I could find it). Squirrels chewed the original so needed a replacement. Thanks etrailer.

  • Extension Hose for Dual Propane Tanks After Regulator on RV
    We have a large selection of propane extension hoses which I have attached for you. In order to find the correct one we would need to know what type of fittings you need on either end. If you do not know what type of fittings you need then you will want to take a look at the attached help article which explains all of the different types. The back check valve you are referring to is usually built into the leader hose that connects the tank to the regulator so you do not need an additional...

    The MB Sturgis Propane Hose Assembly - 1/2" Female Flare Swivel x 3/8" MPT - 3' # 100383-36-MBS does not come in a 12 inch length. We only have the 3 foot already mentioned, 4 foot # 100383-48-MBS, and 5 foot # 100383-60-MBS. The only hoses in the 12 inch length are the pigtail hoses that connect the cylinder to the regulator.

  • Is Propane Pressure Before Regulator High Pressure Propane
    The lines and ports that would mount before your propane regulator would be unregulated propane and not high pressure as high pressure propane is regulated just to a higher pressure. Low-pressure propane burners regulate gas intake to about 6 ounces per square inch, whereas high-pressure burners regulate gas intake to between 1 and 60 pounds per square inch. Pressure in a propane tank regardless of size can range between 100 and 200 psi typically.

    MPT is a male connection with NPT threads (national pipe threads). They basically just drop the "National" portion of the name on these parts and replace them with the male or female designation. The MB Sturgis Propane Hose Assembly - 1/2" Female Flare Swivel x 3/8" MPT - 4' # 100383-48-MBS you were looking at has a male NPT fitting and would require a female NPT (FPT) fitting to connect to.

  • Recommended Propane Hose that Runs from Regulator to RV
    It sounds like you are just needing a hose assembly like the MB Sturgis Propane Hose # 100383-48-MBS. This 4 foot long hose is designed to connect a 2-stage regulator to the RV's propane system. It features a 3/8 inch Male NPT at one end that will connect to the regulator and then a 1/2 inch Female Flare Swivel that will connect to your RV. You will just want to verify the type of connection you need on the RV end. Another common connection is a 3/8 inch female flare swivel. If this is...

  • Comparing High and Low Pressure Propane Hoses and Thermoplastic Versus Rubber
    Most RV propane systems use a low pressure regulator because the appliances are low pressure. You can check the information stamped into your regulator to determine if it is high or low pressure or offers both. High pressure regulators are usually 30 psi, such as # 108072. Hoses for high pressure systems are built to handle the higher pressure. Many hoses do not specify if they are high or low pressure and can generally be used for either system. The fittings on each type may have different...

For hoses you will need a 3/8" MPT to attach to the regulators and since you mentioned 1/2" the 3' Propane Hose Assembly # 100383-36-MBS comes with a 1/2" female flare swivel on the other end.

  • How to Correctly Measure a Propane Hose
    In order to correctly measure a propane hose you will need to measure end to end (fitting to fitting). The propane hoses we sell are by the foot so this may make it easier to determine what you need. It is also a good idea to get a hose that is a bit longer than what you need to account for any errors during measuring. For example, the MB Sturgis Propane Hose Assembly part # 100383-48-MBS is 4' long end to end. I have attached a list of our propane selection for you as well.

Additionally, since you've said that the piping side is larger it sounds like you're looking for the # 37207-31445 which has a 1/2" Female flare connector on one end and a 3/8" male NPT on the other.
