Needing 36 Inch Braided Acme to 1/4 Male Flare Propane Supply Pigtail


I am looking for a propane tank hose. I need a stainless steel braided 36 long 1/4 flared male for my Winnebago Intent. I understand the green and the black knobs are not the same size. The hose I have now has a black knob. How do I know which hose to buy


Expert Reply:

The black and the green knobs on the pigtail are known as ACME connectors. The ACME connector has a safety feature that shuts off the flow of gas at a certain flow level. The black and dark green knobs fit the same thread size, but the black are connectors are rated for 70,000-100,000 Btu per hour. The dark green are rated for 450,000-500,000 Btu per hour.

I spoke with my MB Strurgis representative, who tells me that the # 100833-36 pigtail would work perfectly for your Winnebago Intent. The pigtail features an ACME type 1 connector at one end to connect to your propane tank and a 1/4 inch male inverted flare on the other end. The 36 inch long hose has a braided stainless steel overbraid to protect the hose from damage.

I've linked to a product description video for the # 100833-36 MB Sturgis Propane Supply Pigtail.
