Propane pigtail that does not leak

Though not actually full timing in our Montana 3813MS, we do have it hooked to shore power throughout the year for guests. I have purchased tw0 12 foot pigtail propane hoses in the last year and a half to use with a 100 lb tank. The first hose was purchased June of 2022; Propane Supply Hose # CAM59033. The second was purchased November 2022; Camco 59035. Both hoses have checked and leaked. The hoses have not been installed with tight radius turns and have not been in the sun.

Has anyone had success with a different brand or style of hose? One of my choices was to purchase a Gas Stop pigtail as reviewers say they have a better crimp coupler on the hose. I do not know if the rubber hose itself is better.
They do not look to provide a 12' hose. I had also thought of installing copper tubing or semi ridged aluminum flexible hose from the changeover to the tank.

I use a. 100lb portable tank on my hunting cabin. I use flexible corrugated stainless tubing that I purchased at Home Depot. Iíve had the same line for 10+ years.

Some years ago, prior to having a hip replaced, we had a large propane tank set next to our rig, and the propane company made up a hose to connect to the rig. The hose never rotted. The tech said many of the cheaper hoses are made with a plastic material, not a quality rubber cover. Your best bet would be to take one of the hoses that have failed to a propane supplier and have them make a hose with the same fittings and length. It likely will last you a long time.

I just purchased a second 12 ft hose for the Blackstone because the new previous 5 week old hose leaked like crazy at the connection to the built in regulator. Zero quality on any of them.
