Default Re: Rubber LP generator hose leak

My propane system now passes the leak down test!
Replacing and re-routing the hose to the generator fixed the problem.

Footnote:

To further illustrate the incompetence of the Airstream upfitters/installers.
I found teflon tape on the flare fittings they used...

Copper Handbook

"No material (e.g., pipe joint
compound) should be applied to the
mating surfaces of the flare fitting and
the flared tube end before attaching the
flare nut to the fitting body."

Page 53 - Copper Tube Handbook, put out by the Copper Development Assn. http://www.copper.org/publications/p...e_handbook.pdf
