propane hook up

Just thought I'd post this. I have posted my complete DIY van on my thread east coast build out. I had mounted a manchester propane tank under van in which my buddy who is a plumber attache line via black pipe from 2 stage regulator thru bottom of van into bed box with a manifold supplying each propane fed appliance. I have replace my regulator once already due to leak outside, Ive driven across country and many trips over last year aprox 15,000 miles. I felt the black pipe was too rigid and application causing stress to regulator. I was correct. I took it to an Rv place. They attached a flex hose from two stage to the black pipe and a mock up shield till i make a thicker gauge one. Pic doesnt show hose but thought if anyone else is doing it themselves they may want to go this route..Hope it helps anyone out there.
Cheers

Re: propane hook up

Looks like a good modification. All the regulations talk about using rigid pipe under an RV, but the only thing I've ever seen is hose. Seems to work.
