Defect SummaryVehicle description: fifth wheel trailers equipped with slide-out rooms that house the kitchen range and refrigerator. a liquid propane (lp) gas hose connects the main lp gas manifold to the gas fired appliances in the slide-out room. the connection of the hose to a tee in the refrigerator compartment puts a rotational stress on the crimped connection between the fitting that connects to the tee and the hose itself.
Consequence SummaryThis condition can result in leakage of lp gas, increasing the risk of fire.
Corrective SummaryDealers will install a manifold that will go into the refrigerator anchoring this to the floor, then attaching a hose with a high compression end fitting to a brass fitting. the hose will then flex side to side rather than rotationally.
