This propane hose is ideal for travel trailers with a split-tank system. This kind of system features 1 cylinder on the driver's side and 1 cylinder on the passenger's side of your trailer. This hose connects the cylinder on the passenger's side to a high-pressure regulator. An additional hose (sold separately) will then carry the propane from the high-pressure regulator to the 2-stage regulator on the driver's side of your trailer.


MB Sturgis RV Type 1 Connection

Compared with other Type 1 connectors, this dark green MB Sturgis Type 1 connector provides the highest flow rate possible before going into bypass mode. As a result, this pigtail will help to ensure that your propane setup will be able to power all of your appliances, even if they require high-pressure gas.


Type 1 connectors go into bypass mode if the flow rate surpasses the maximum flow capacity for that connector. When maximum capacity is reached, a ball inside of the fitting will push an internal spring down and press firmly against the bottom of the fitting to shut off the flow of gas. This MB Sturgis dark green Type 1 connector not only provides a higher flow rate compared to cylinder connectors of different colors, but it also offers a higher rate when compared with dark green cylinder connectors from other manufacturers.

Product was what I expected. The only issue I had was with the Etrailer Price Pledge.Took numerous emails and phone calls to get it straightened out.

Glad I found e-trailer. These lines were just what I needed to replace old cracked lines. I hadn't been able to find the proper length and fittings anywhere else.

FIVE STARS!! This pigtail propane hose was delivered very quickly...and the price and quality is awesome. I was camping with my grandchildren a month ago and called an RV center when I discovered I could not use my propane stove because the onboard hose had a leak in it. Local RV center wanted $30 for the same product. I'm very happy to have found what I was looking for at etrailer. NOt my first order with them and won't be my last.

One of the original pigtails was leaking at the tank connection after only 6 months. I decided to replace both of them. They were 12" long and I felt too much strain was placed on the fitting, so I opted for these 15" ones. I'm very happy with the quality of the connections and the flexibility of the hose.

I bought this to replace a pigtail on a 2 year old travel trailer that had a slow leak in the swedge next to the tank connection. The factory pigtail was ridgid, soft copper bent easier . This pigtail is very flexible and of course does not leak . I will be buying another to replace the other pigtail even though it does not leak at this time.

I loved the handwheel on this hose. It threaded easily and seated with little effort. However on the first tank change, the super stiff hose spun on the barb fitting and started leaking around the crimp right away, just like every other hose. I wish somebody would make a flexible hose that didn't leak at the crimp.

Very happy with the products I've received. As good as you can get before going high dollar. The company response is awesome with easy ordering and billing. The only shortfall I've found was a delay in shipping due to back order of one item, with no notification to me. My inquiry into this was met with prompt response and service. Thank you.

  • Replacement Propane Pigtail Solution for RV 15 inch
    Thanks for the picture! Based on what you sent in the MB Sturgis Pigtail part # 100473-15-MBS that you referernced will fit and work well.

  • Propane Hose with 1/4" Male Fitting Does Not Fit Regulator with 1/4" Female Fitting
    From the picture that you attached it looks like the regulator has a 1/4" SAE inverted flare, like the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator # CAM59005 does. This means that only hoses that have the 1/4" male inverted flare, like part # CAM59053, will fit. Since the MB Sturgis Propane Hose w/ Back Check # 100473-15-MBS that you purchased does not have the inverted flare you will simply need to remove the fitting that is currently on your regulator and install the Sturgis...

  • Should Pipe Sealant be Used When Installation Propane Tank 1/4 MPT Pigtail
    Yes you should use some kind of sealant on threaded fittings whether it is the tape or pipe dope. Using the white Teflon tape will work well on installing the propane pigtail top the LP regulator. Just wrap the tape on the threads only.

  • Length of MB Sturgis # 100473-15-MBS Propane Hose
    I had specific measurements taken on the # 100473-15-MBS hose for you. Overall from end to end it's 15-1/2 inches long. The rubber portion is 11-1/2 inches and it's 14-1/4 inches from the outlet end to the end of the hose where it connects to the ACME nut.

  • Availability of 15 inch Long Propane Tank Pig Tails
    I understand what you are saying and I think you are on the right track. A bit more length from the pig tail would allow the rubber line to be able to loop so that it could tuck down better. We have 15 inch pig tails like part # 100473-15-MBS or even 2 foot long sections like part # 100473-24-MBS.

  • Replacement Propane Hose for Marshall HP424
    According to my research, the Marshall HP424 does have a Type 1 connection (which connects to your propane tank) and a 1/4" Male NPT connection (which connects to a dual-stage regulator). So the hose you mentioned will work as a replacement, and there are a number of different lengths if you were in need of one. - 12 Inches: MB Sturgis Propane Hose Assembly - RV Type 1 w/ Back Check x 1/4" MPT # 100473-12 - 15 Inches: MB Sturgis Propane Hose Assembly - RV Type 1 w/ Back Check x 1/4"...

  • Propane Regulator for MB Sturgis 100473 Propane Hose
    Yes, you can use the MB Sturgis 100473 hose with a replacement single-stage regulator, which is what it looks like you need based on your photo. For the regulator you will need the Camco Single Stage Propane Regulator # CAM59013. Then for the 100473 hose you can choose the one you need based on the length: - 12 inches: MB Sturgis Propane Hose - RV Type 1 with Back Check x 1/4" MPT # 100473-12 - 15 inches: MB Sturgis Propane Hose - RV Type 1 with Back Check x 1/4" MPT # 100473-15-MBS -...

  • Troubleshooting Propane Regulator That Only Works on One Side
    Start off by checking your pigtail. If you change your switch so that it is turned towards the side that isn't working and then swap your pigtails as well this will tell you if you need to simply replace a pigtail or if your have a bad regulator. If you find that it works when you swap the pigtail as well then you just need to replace your pigtail. If your regulator has the gold fittings on it where the pigtail attaches then you need part # 100575-12-MBS. Otherwise you would need part...

  • Pigtail Replacement for 2009 Jayco Jay/flight G2TT
    It appears the part number you have listed may be a Marshal brand, we do not carry this brand but do have high quality components available from MB Sturgis. The length of hose needed, thread size and type are required to ensure a proper fit for replacement. We have the MB Sturgis, # 100473-12, a 12" hose with the needed Type 1 - Male on one end of the pig tail and a 1/4 Inch - Male NPT on the other. See the attached product review video. We also have the same hose but in a 15" length...
