    So does anyone know what exactly the issue was with the hoses?

    I'm curios because as I was cutting the ends off for the recall, i noticed that I cut through one hose like butter. The other was a real pain to cut - which more closely aligns to the videos you see of people simulating hose failures.

    Replacement hoses seem to be thinner, more flexible, and with higher quality fittings. If danicorp has gone out of business, this must be costing someone a tidy penny.

    DGX replaced my hose, 3 day turn around, no problem. :thumb:
    I called them because my primary LP hose was from another supplier but it was within the date range. Seemed reasonable that it was from the same mfg.
    They were very helpful and professional. I was happy to buy that replacement hose through them as well.
