Any good camping store will have them. You could also try Bunnings.

Be aware that there are maximum leagl lenghts that certain gas hoses can be made to.

I tried to get hold of one to reach from the gas bottles in my CT to the pull-out kitchen and couldn't find one long enough in stores.

Even the local gas people who make hoses up refused to make one over the legal maximum.

Sorry to hijack the thread - I was at one stage looking for a longer hose to go from my gas on the camper trailer to my tailgate kitchen. I saw a guy at a campground with one once. When I couldn't find any over about 1.5 mtrs I realised maybe they dont do them that long as they probably would hold a lot of gas when burner is turned off... don't know if that is a problem?

Anyways last week I saw a post on exploroz of a guy who's camper trailer burnt down completely destroyed within a couple of minutes. Cause, faulty connections on hose/gas bottle- flame from burner went down the hose to the bottle within split second. After reading that I have taken advice of a few posters saying dont leave the bottle on the camper when connected to cooker. I can see sense in that, I'm going to take the extra minute to get the bottle off the camper when using.

Which is why I use a Gas Fuse.
Anything untowards happens the Gas Fuse imediately shuts the gas off at the bottle.
Not that expensive and if it saves your families lives and/or your trailer, well worth the investment I think.

Never heard of them - I will do a search - cool thanks. And I also have to pick up a fire extinguisher.

And a fire blanket too is a good measure.
