    Hello! We have a 1997 Coleman Seapine. We've had it for a few years but haven't used the stove outside yet. I was finally able to find the replacement bracket for the stove but when we tried to connect the stove to the quick release it won't fully connect because it seems to be caught on the frame of the camper. My husband tried to fix it but can't seem to figure out a good way. He's afraid to change the direction of the line too much. Wondering if any has had any similar experience and/or ideas about fixing it?Thanks!

    Here's how it looks right?

    You have to push in the Knurled knob on the connection out and then stick the hose in deeply. Then pull back the knurled knob until its seated. Test that it's seated well by pushing in and out on the hose. It should be in there tight
    Here are more photos at this link.
    There is danger if the hose is not properly seated. You could have a gas leak that explodes causing death. Always test and ensure its well seated. See pictures of what an improperly seated hose looks like at the link
