When you have it apart take a close at the threads and see if they are in good shape.

Gas certified pipe dope is better than gas certified tape. But, remove it. I like Permatex.

Ok I goofed with my last response so it went to a wrong thread. or at least it appears that happened.

Looks like a brass to steel coupling. the two metals have different coefficients of expansion as they get hot/cold. so the connection can fail under pressure.

I'd replace the steel parts with brass and the proper tape.. Precise length is not important only the diamater and thread.

Second that looks to be a "Home brew" Fix for a problem that likely did not exist. Some of the Home brew things I've seen seriously scare me.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

A fellow camper was ready to replace his fridge when it stopped working. When he disconnected the propane line oil ran out. Fix the leak and replace it. It's good insurance.
