Looking for propane regulator cover

Something that I thought existed, but I can't find now.

I recall, but it could be a figment of my middle-age mind, a nylon fabric cover that goes over the propane regulator/valve to protect it from dirt and debris. I've come across hard plastic covers, but I like the simplicity of a fabric boot over the regulator.

I know most of you have propane tanks mounted in protected locations, but on my teardrop my propane tanked is mounted on a bracket on the side of the trailer, so I want to cover the regulator when towing the trailer.

This is the closest thing I've found, it's a cover for the regulator for a Powertank, but it's sized to go over the Powertank handle too, so it's rather large.


Another possibility is a small neoprene pouch designed for camera lenses and such.

Try a Pre-filter sock from K&N, UNI or the like. Many different sizes available.

Another item that may work is a cover for a bicycle peddle.

If you have an old wetsuit and a tube of marine goop laying around you always fab your own.
