  • Pigtail hose connects your dual LP gas cylinder setup to your regulator
  • RV Type 1 ACME fitting provides a high flow rate before going into bypass mode
    • Lets you power all of your RV's appliances at once
  • Internal back-check on Type 1 fitting prevents gas from leaking out of the connection at the inlet
  • Stainless steel overbraid protects the hose from damage

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, the flow of gas through the fitting will be completely shut off. The maximum flow capacity for this dark green Type 1 connector is 200 SCFH. When the gas in the system reaches this level, a ball inside of the fitting will push an internal spring down, pressing 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. The MB Sturgis dark green Type 1 has been tested to ensure that it hits a maximum of 200 SCFH every time.

My pigtails are only a year old but I was changing out a tank and heard hissing. When I put everything back together it was fine. No way I wasn't going to replace but wanted an upgrade. These pigtails appear to be better made and installation took minutes. Time will tell.

These propane pigtails are exactly what I've been searching for. Made in the USA was plus. I didn't want to trust the "cheaper" offshore brands for our trailer. Many of them have the black knobs, which aren't appropriate for anything but a BBQ grill. They were priced right, and arrived when they were suppose to. I'm using them to replace the original pigtails that came on our trailer. I chose the stainless braid in case critters decide to try them for lunch. It'll deter them from ruining a perfectly good camping trip. The old ones will become spares, in case someone else needs them to save their trip. Thank you, etrailer.


Comments
The Sturgis stainless steel pigtails have been functioning flawlessly for a year now. The chipmunks and squirrels cant chew through the braid, which Im sure disappoints them immensely. Theyve been a great upgrade to our RV, and I recommend them to anyone looking to replace the pigtails on their camper.

The pigtails on my propane tanks were the originals (10 yrs old) and finally sprung a very small leak. It was time for replacement and research showed me the Sturgis stainless sheathed one's were about the best money can buy. I was impressed with all the features built in...….especially the safety features. Also the price was right. I have ordered from etrailer in the past and I am still very happy with the turnaround time to receive my orders......not to forget the super friendly and efficient staff. You folks have an intimate knowledge of all your products which serves the customer well. Keep up the good work !!


Comments
The pigtails were constantly in service for 3 months over last summer with absolutely NO problems. I put my trailer in storage on my property up North and the product, according to my daughter still looks like new. I will be returning in the fall of 2020 to take the trailer out of storage, but knowing the quality of the products from etrailer, I expect no problems.

My old propane pigtails on my pop-up camper had become old and brittle plus I thought it was about time to replace the old P.O.L. fittings with the newer, much easier to use Type 1 Acme fittings. I chose the MB Sturgis pigtail since it is "assembled in the USA" and looked like a quality item. I decided to spend a few extra bucks on the stainless overbraid for added protection. These hoses arrived quickly, installed easily and worked fine. I'm sure they will last for many years.

Jury is out on how long this will last but it looks like it's very well made and my expectations are high. It's installed in the propane locker of a 32 foot sailboat.

Propane hoses were about 7 yrs old and were leaking,this was an easy fix thanks to ETRAILER Fast delivery and easy installation just make sure you order the right fittings to accommodate the valve on your trailer.

Very nice upgrade from the standard type hose. Well made by Sturgis in USA


Comments
Working great. No more leaks, expect these hoses to last a long time due to the stainless braid standing up to sun exposure much more than regular rubber hose.

After one year of use (both summer and winter) it preforms as it did on day one. No leaks, no deformed hoses. Good product.

They worked on excellent. I ordered the first pair too short came to a friend that used them. Now my propane lines are nice and flexible and easy gets a tanks in and out. If these ever got hard like the original ones dead I would buy them again.

We purchased this pigtail in conjunction with a MB Sturgis regulator. Both are rated for higher flow than the regulator/pigtails installed on our Nash trailer. We had been having problems in the late fall/early winter with the factory installed regulator locking our propane tank out when the furnace and refrigerator were on. So far the MB Sturgis combination has worked well and we don't have the middle of the night panic when the heat goes off at 0F but we still have full tanks of propane. We also like the stainless over-braid on the pigtail. Less likely to kink or abrade.


Comments
The pigtail and MB Sturgis regulator have both functioned without fault at lower ambient temperatures. So far, no propane shutoffs in the middle of the night even though the tanks were full. I believe the regulator and pigtails supplied by the trailer manufacturer were the cheapest possible and this not intended for cold weather use, even though the trailer is 4 seasons rated.

Prompt delivery. Items in great condition. Although item 100833-12 had the wrong end fitting on it for an RV propane hook-up, not the same as existing one. Had go to RV dealer 15 miles away get 1/4" Inverted Flare × 1/4" MPT fittings for each hose to make them fit. $4.95 for the pair. Product description didn't reveal this discrepancy. Now all is well, "I'm a Happy Camper" no propane leaks.

My inlet regulator size is 3/8” not the standard 1/4” size. Most companies, including etrailer, do not have a 3/8” inverted male flare that is 12” long. A 3/8” male X 1/4” female flare adapter was needed to connect to the 1/4” pigtail. It is always a pleasure working with etrailer.

Braided hose fit like original without any problems accommodating the required bend. Just installed so only four stars at this time. Am hoping for longer live than OEM. Original was five years old and US made by Fairview. Outer rubber was cracked and started leaking. Always had hard plastic cover on tanks except when changing.

Purchased two MB Sturgis Propane Pigtails with stainless overbraid. Item was exactly as described on etrailer's website. What I like most about etrailer is the range of products they carry along with the very detailed information\photos/videos about their items for sale. Many internet sellers have skimpy details which makes it hard to assure yourself that you are getting what you need. Their prices are also very competitive. Shipping is quick and service, if needed, is great.

it seems to me etrailer only sells quality. pigtail was made in usa, easy to install and NO LEAKS

After returning the pigtails I bought elsewhere (because they leaked right out of the package), I bought these. They arrived quickly and were easy to install, and most important of all, no leaks.

Ask the Experts about this MB Sturgis Propane

  • Recommended Type 1 Propane Pigtail with Dark Green Connector
    It sounds like you're looking for a Type 1 propane pigtail, which are available in 12" with part # 100833-12, 18" with part # 37207-30735 or 30" with part # 100575-30-MBS; these all have the dark green Type 1 connection that you're seeking but they do not come in a 10" long version. For the 1/4" MIF to 1/4" Female MPT adapter you can use the # 402258-MBS which does not have a back check, or the # 204120-MBS which comes with a back check. There is not a Female MPT to MIF adapter available,...

  • Pigtails Needed to Connect Dual Propane Tanks to Regulator on Travel Trailer
    For a typical travel trailer propane setup you will have 1 of 2 pigtails. The first will have the Type 1 connector (with the green cap) and the other has a 1/4" MPT fitting like what we find on the pigtail # 100473-12. I believe this is what you currently have but I think the end you're seeing looks like the MB Sturgis Propane Adapter Fitting # 204120-MBS and I think the white plastic piece is part of the back-check. The other type of pigtail that we see has the same Type 1 connector,...

  • 12 Propane Pigtail
    If you have a 1/4 Inch - Male NPT, I suggest the # 100473-12. If you have a 1/4 Inch - MIF, then I suggest # 100833-12. If you have brass fittings in the inlets on the regulator then you most likely have the inverted flare.

  • Regulator for Gas Fireplace that Needs 11 inch Water Column from Two Propane Tanks
    The 11 inch to 13 inch WC requirement you mentioned is standard LP like what the regulator part # 37207-31525 you mentioned provides. This regulator was designed for dual tank setups like you have too and automatically changes between the two so it would work great.

  • Is Teflon Tape Needed To Seal the Propane Regulator
    Yes, you will want to use some sort of thread sealer like part # LT37482 or pipe tape like part # A05-0265 on the NPT fittings inside of the MB Sturgis Single Stage Propane Regulator part # 108072. As a general rule, all NPT fittings should have some sort of thread sealer or pipe tape on them. Not to confuse you but some supply hoses (propane tank to regulator) like part # 100833-12 come with an inverted flare fitting and if that is the case then you would also need part # 402258-MBS...
