I had to change over from tank 1 to tank 2 two weeks ago. When I did, I noticed that the pigtail started to leak at the fitting conected to the regulator. I closed the tank immediately. Last night I replaced the pigtail and did the soap and water test. It checked out.

But, how do you get at the fitting and hoses to check the connections at the appliance?

We have a two burner stove and oven. I loose sight of the supply hose after it leaves the propane locker. I imagine it runs through the lazzerette, than into the cabin and behind the stove.

Do you soap and water the whole supply hose? Just the fittings?
