Question/help with gas hose

I also had a new gas hose made up for my grill, the inside of the new fittings on each end of the hose are smaller than the old hose would this hurt the flow of gas, or should it be ok to use??????

I'm no expert, but I would guess that the i.d. would'nt matter as long as the fittings were the right size, that is to say that they screw together tightly and don't leak.

If in doubt, check with whoever made up the hose for you. Or call Hank Hill at Strickland propane (do I watch too much TV?)

I'm no expert either, but I would think it would mean you would not get the same volume of gas to your burners. It might be a safety thing they now have.
It might also be that they grabbed the wrong fittings. Propane requires larger orifices than natural gas. Maybe the hose fittings are different, too.

It will be fine. There is so little actual gas flowing through it the diameter of the hose is of little consequence.

I would test the connections for a leak and then try it.

Me too. Mix a little dish soap and water then apply around fittings with valve open.
