Compatibility of Longer Propane Pigtail Hose on Aliner RV


I would like to move my propane tank from the passenger side to the driver side on my Aliner RV. I am going to mount a second tank on the passenger side for the generator. How do I determine if the MB Sturgis #100473-36-MBS is the correct hose. It should be long enough I just need to know if it is compatible with my sysrem. The information on the current propane hose reads: ANSIZ 21.81CSA6.25 Cylinder Connection Device, 200KBTU/HR, MAX W P 250PSI, Model AJT-T. I uploaded a picture of tthe current connection.

The MB Sturgis Propane Hose w/ Back Check - Type 1 x 1/4" MPT - 36" # 100473-36-MBS is a great replacement for the part you referenced but it isn't quite as high a capacity. Nothing in a traditional RV will require the 450K BTU lines and your regulator will reduce it to likely so the 400K BTU pigtail will work just fine as a replacement.

For instance an extremely common regulator is the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks # CAM59005 which will reduce the BTUs to 210K per hour.
