Re: 60's Magic Chef RV Stove Question..
I hate to tell you guys, But copper is NOT supposed to be connected to the appliance. Nor is that rubber hose that got posted. The rubber is a flex line to connect the propane bottle. Gas and propane appliances are supposed to be connected using a stainless gas flex line. This prevents the flared copper connections from fatiguing and failing.
We use propane here on the farm in 4 buildings. Every year someone, or something bumps a copper line and causes a leak. It's always the flared fitting that fails. Do what ever you can to make sure there is no sideways stress, or movement on the flared fitting.
