Looking at a site it recommends changing the Regulator every 10 years and the hose every 5.
 
The hose on the 320 is not very long and there are no visible signs of wear and tear.
 
Does any one have a view as to when they should be renewed?
 
Many Thanks

Hi, I changed mine ( both the inside and outside hoses + regulator) and they were in good condition too but..better safe than sorry. You can find all you need @ SVB (make sure you get the right type).

Mine looked OK, until I removed it & started flexing it & noticed tiny hair cracks. I know that this is only the outside, but, hey!! It only cost a couple of 's to replace, so why even query it? Just do it. The same for the regulator. Why even take the risk if recommendations are that one replaces them with properly marked items at 5 & 10 year intervals. (I change my hoses at 3 years)

Some of my DIY seems to work on the principle that I get it right the second time, so I stay away from through-hulls and gas work.  I had the system checked over and items replaced by

He did a very thorough job, checking the system with manometers. One thing he did do was replace the rubber pipe connection to the stove with a reinforced hose, as it can be caught by the stove when the yacht is heeled.
