- Replace the connect tubes with the screw connectors that I heard from somewhere else already have regulators built in?
- Looks like I may be ok without removing the regulator on the grill.
- Be sure to confirm that all methods and materials you use are compatible with your equipment and abilities.
- Thank you for the great idea.
- Is there a way to clean it?
RV Propane Tanks
Spray all the connections liberally with the soapy water mixture to ensure there are no leaks. This connector does not look like it will work on my class A rv with a built in under floor tank. The one on the grill is built on, and not easily removable without modification.

If so it might be a more elegant solution. Glad to hear our videos have been helpful. Just keep an eye on the tanks when one goes empty simply flip the indicator over. The other end runs to your stove. Replaced the T and this one has worked great.
Up until today, we seemed to be having a constant gas supply but, now I'm doubting that. When I took off the cap it popped. If this takes some special equipment or technique, maybe you could make an instructional video? Many motorhomes have a means of opening a vent from the furnace or even a dedicated zone from a hydronic heat source to provide warm air down there whenever the heat kicks on. Hope this helps get Robert on the right track, too.
Having to get up in the middle of the night to turn a cylinder on is a heck of a lot better than getting up in the middle of the night to find you have no propane at all with no way to get it. There is a slight variation in the connectors that prevents the flow of propane if a low pressure male is used with a high pressure female or visa versa. That way I'll always have a full bottle available. How great is it to be able to eliminate a redundancy, while improving functionality and reducing costs. Mix a small amount of dish soap into a cup full of water, and very slowly pour that soapy water over the cap, being sure it runs down all sides.
We're happy with the techniques and products we use, but be sure to confirm that all methods and materials you use are compatible with your equipment and abilities. Thank you, Gentlemen, for the reply. He sure isn't helping his rep with bad info like that.
The connector on the pup looks like a quick connect hydraulic fitting to me. Do you have anything about awnings, how do you hook up etc in the rain. The last one that we used to help us was the replacement of the large air filter on the engine. We decided on a foot hose to allow us to set the fire pit a good distance from the motorhome.

- Assembly takes a few minutes, and requires only basic tools.
- We did that several times, and then left it to dry for a while, so the alcohol would evaporate after having broken down the oily residue.
- Dual Propane Tanks and Valving System.
Heater version of the T Valve. Seems like the whole propane feed system is just messed up. Did you have to replace the regulator on the grill or is there a way to clean it? Oil can indeed be a problem. It's possible that you are opening the valve too quickly and engaging the flow limiting device.
Connecting an RV to External Propane
With the automatic changeover, many people are not diligent about checking their propane levels or they simply forget to monitor it. My small napoleon bbq has the pressure regulator built into the flame controller so a bypass is not possible. If you find a spot that you think is blowing bubbles, pour some more over to check.
Should I get the fixed or adjustable model? What appalling to me that I mentioned this to Winnebago Aspect group on Facebook and no one cared. If not available from Amazon, do you have another source?
How To Hook Up External Propane Tank To RV Step By Step
This is about what I want for my pop up. Using your links below the video, I ordered all the parts from Amazon. However, I won't go quite so far to say that his advice was completely wrong. In other words, do they not only have different shaped ends to prevent them from being connected to a high-pressure connect, but are they also built to lower standards? It will absolutely work with your grill, Tim, hot chicks just as it works with ours.
The first thing we do in situations like this is determine if we have propane flow and ignition. Follow the links below and you will be well on your way to propane supply utopia. One real beauty of those quick releases is that they shut off the flow of propane upon disconnection from the other side, which makes turning off the propane at the tank unnecessary. But dragging around a pound propane tank to fuel the thing seemed ridiculous when we have propane right in the motorhome.
A brief guide on RV propane for beginners
My camper came with a quick connect propane line that goes to a gas grill that mounts to the side of the camper. My concern it in putting the Tee between the tank valve and the switch operated shut-off valve. However once you decide to go with the high pressure connectors you are committed to them and they are not that easy to find.
It still gets hot enough to grill a thin steak or burgers. Did you first shut off all flow from the propane tank or does the shut-off valve not open, regardless of the valve arm position, when not connected? Or, should I use the regulator system and just keep an eye on things. None of the destiny series came with a regulated high pressure port, instead they came with quick disconnect low pressure just like the inside.
Ive been looking into this idea and was wondering where I would be able to purchase parts. Now I am wondering if I should buy new extension hoses as well has I noticed oily residue extruding from the ends. They are greatly appreciated! There should of course be no propane coming out around the cap, since the valve is closed. Session expired Please log in again.
An unfortunate costly mistake by earlier adaptors. Unscrew the big nut off propane tank, install new tee. Tried again without tape, still leaks. Is there some kind of secret to getting this T adapter to not leak?
There is plenty of pressure from the tank to run both simultaneously. Simply hook the tank to the gauge, lift the tank off the ground, and look at the reading. The best thing to do is just hook the grill up with its regulator in place and see if it works.
But the psi adjustable regulator should work just fine. It does cool, even with the sputtering flame. Without installing your connection, I would have never known. You guys are unbelievable! This part has the check valve, so now I can leave the regulator and fittings connected to the main propane tank and just screw on the hose.

One thing that people may also need to know is that some propane appliances such as some stoves and lanterns that you might want to hook up this way do require high pressure. So after regulator replacement, tractor hydraulic etc. All inside appliances in a camper are low pressure.
If so tben you need a tee or seperate tank. So far the mod has worked flawlessly, except for a failed regulator which was replaced. Wrap each joint in thread tape, and connect one end of the hose to the fire pit. Then, in a well-ventilated area with no other open flames, insert the flow plug into the quick-connect sleeve, turn on the gas valve, and light the fire pit. In reading all this over, we want to clarify our understanding of the connections just a bit further.
