WAYNE - NO DEAL, BUT I WILL BUY YOU LUNCH IF YOU CALL ME WHILE IN YAKIMA.

LYLE, I HAVE NOT DISCUSSED ANY OF THIS STUFF YET BUT PLAN ON IT SOOM - MAYBE TODAY. THE HEATER DRAWER IS THE RESULT OF ADDING A NEW 3KW INVERTER AND MOVING IT TO THE TOP OF THE BAY - STREET SIDE. THAT ALLOWED ME TO REMOVE THE FACTORY PARTITION AND OPEN UP THE BAY. I ADDED THE SLIDE AND CUT OUT THE STREET SIDE TO ALLOW FOR MY LADDER. 'LOTS OF EXTRA ROOM FOR MY INVENTORY/INSTALLATION STUFF.

Vagabondman -

Great photos! This is a little off topic here, but I have a question about one of the photos in your gallery. In the photo titled "MORE LOUVERED FLOOR IN PROPANE COMPARTMENT" it looks like you have tapped into your propane line. I would like to do something similar to power my gas grill, but it looks to me like the Extend-a-Flow (and similar systems) is meant to hook up to the POL connector on a portable propane cylinder not a motorhome-mounted ASME tank. Please tell me what you used.

PAZ,

I WOUND UP GOING TO THE LOCAL PROPANE DISTRIBUTOR AND GETTING THE "T" YOU SEE IN THE PHOTO. THEN I RAN A HIGH PRESSURE LINE THRU THE BASEMENT TO THE AREA I WANTED (RIGHT REAR BAY UNDER VACUUM) AND CONNECTED TO A PIECE OF BLACK IRON PIPE FOR STABILITY. THEN INSTALLED A GAS VALVE AND QUICK DISCONNECT THAT GOES THRU THE FLOOR TO MY BBQ. BBQ RUNS ON THE HIGH PRESSURE FROM THE TANK. ORIGINALLY I TRIED TO RUN THE BBQ ON LOW PRESSURE AND WOUND UP DESTROYING THE REGULATOR BY DRILLING IT OUT. LIVE AND LEARN THE HARD WAY.

Vagabondman,

Thanks, I'll check with a distributor as soon as I get the chance. My propane tank is on the curb side, so I'll be able to use the extension with the grill right where it attaches.
