Flap Inside Rubber Hose

I have seen this many times. If the crimp fittings are not properly installed the fitting can cut the hose as it  goes into the hose causing a flap. I have seen it mostly with hydraulic hoses but LPG hoses are about the same.

And now you know the rest of the story

And the winner is...a new hose. I took the whole set up from hose from Scamp to the regulator, the new regulator, and hose from the regulator to the LP tank to a local heating and cooling contractor. I also took the old regulator to check to see if it still was working so I could keep it as back-up. A new hose from tank to regulator solved it, but the "rest of the story" as Paul Harvey would have said, was that the new regulator doesn't work. 

Glad I didn't toss the old regulator and I've learned a few things in the process of troubleshooting. I also have a functioning stove so that is what counts!
