I have a 1999 Monaco Diplomat, and I have a leaking propane fill hose. I need to remove it from the fill connector to the tank.

My question is, if I remove the old hose, will propane leak out, or does it have a built-in "check" valve to prevent the escape of the gas??
This hose is only about 3 ft long, and has half inch flared fittings on each end.
I am concerned in removing the fittings, since I have a full tank of propane.

Thanks.

Isn't there an isolation valve at the tank? This is what I have closed prior to any type of work on my propane system. Also, I would never depend on a safety device(I am assuming you are referring to the OPD valve) for my protection, as this hopefully would work but I sure would not want to bet my life on it. Best to get some info on your specific system or have someone who does do it.

I'm sure there is a shut off valve on the tank.
Have never seen a tank with out one.

First I don't understand what a "Propane fill hose" that you are talking about. When they fill your tank they hook up directly to the OPD valve. Is the hose you are talking about connected to the regulator?

The OP obviously has a "remote fill hose" system but Iam pretty sure from memory that the valve at the tank is a one way valve so should be no probelm replacing the remote fill hose even when there is LPG in the tank

I have seen 1 or 2 units the tank was mounted in between the frame rails and had a hose from the fill connector to the tank. I would take it to a certified LP repair facility and have them replace the hose if there is no shut-off valve at the tank.

Monaco puts in a remote fill connection that is connected to the tank by a 3' hose. Most all Monaco's have this. Adjacent to the filler fitting is an electric switch to turn off the gas. The electric solenoid valve is attached to the outlet of the tank.

However, I would crawl underneath and reach up on the tank and turn off the manual valve before changing the hose.

The manual valve your refering to is the outlet valve!! It will have no bearing on the replacement of the remote fill hose.The remote fill hose will hook onto a one way fill valve on the tank.

Maybe on your Monaco coach (?). But not that way on mine (2001 Knight).

I have two manual valves. One on the inlet and one on the outlet.

I have a 2002 Monaco Diplomat and my fill hose started leaking when we tried to fill it this past weekend. I cut off the electric switch and removed the hose this afternoon, no problems. Any ideas where I can source a replacement hose?
