I'm basically looking for a hose that has each of the ends from the fitting in the pic. Preferably six to ten feet long. I've looked and not had any luck.

I want to start using a 100lb propane bottle for cookers around the house and need a long hose to hook to it.

Try your local propane dealer. I just ordered one about 30' long from mine. If you try elsewhere be sure it is made for propane. You cant just use any kind of pressure fitting hose. The propane will "eat" the wrong hose from the inside out. Im sure I dont have to tell you what happens then. Shocked

I got mine at Do It Best Hardware store. IIRC it was around $30.

I prefer the heavy duty hose with quick connect ends. ( think air comp. lines) about .75' at propane dealers here but really handy for multi purpose use...

I'm not having any luck finding the hose as I described above. You guys are saying that you bought one just like I want or similar?

Thanks tcoop4899.

If you don't mind me asking the price and if your hose looks like this? Just want to make 100% sure before I try to buy one that I can't see first.

Please read PMPNLT650pxOTLS!

Then read this one too! Wink Laughing Wink



I took out enough from your picture to make it fit the size requirements, then realized I'd cut out the size!

Thanks for your speedy action, there I was changing things and taking "15 to 20" foot out of your image, only to find you had already shrunk it enough! Razz Laughing Shocked

Stainless I will take some pics of it this morning. I have it attached to a 100lb tank with a weedburner on the other end that I use for cleaning off the grates, burning out the excess grease and starting the fire in the firebox on the cooker that I use at work thats in my avatar.

I did find someone to do it but shipping is as high as the cost of the hose. Been debating..

You can get one of These and have it sent to Here for pickup. No shipping charges. And you can do the ordering online. I use them for lots of little things (If I'm not in a hurry) because they're closer than HD or Blowes.

Sometimes shipping prices are more than what the product is worth. Sounds like Bugs has found you a good solution.
