Hose maintenance

How often do you change your propane hose for the glory hose?
I used American hose so you know what I am talking about.

I get hinky about it if it shows any signs of cracking anywhere. That's true of electrical cables on transformers and SXCR's too.

I recall "Sod's Law"

"If you disturb it, it will break."

Thanks for the nose lifetime estimate. The hose is there and we tend to forget it can dry rot

Enough of this tasteless HiJack.

Keep your rubber hoses out of the sun, away from being abraded and do check them frequently. This applies to electrical insulation on cables as well. Cool and Dark...
