Adding line to propane tank

Looking to stop carrying a 10lb propane tank for my camp chef grill. This is what I have. Can I use that T with the plug in it? It is after the regulator and the grill has a regulator also.



Looking at something like this

I don't see a T in the picture. However, in general, you need to add the BBQ Grill connection before the coach regulator since the BBQ Grill has its own regulator. Kind of like this picture:

Ther plug is above the two wires. Looks like a 3/8x1/4 bushing then a 1/4 plug. That's the reason I'm asking is because the plug is after the regulator. I guess it would be regulated twice using that plug.

The commercial Tees usually have some safety features built in. That is one reason I bought a Stay A While Tee for my unit. Besides the grill port it also has one for an external tank so I don't have to move my motor home to get propane. It came with both hoses.

mike, here is what my set up looks like. the t had been there already i just added the valve and the quick disconnect so it serves two purposes - for bbq, and for "extended stay" if need be.

Good set up. Now, on the other end, if your grill has a regulator it will have to be removed to allow sufficient pressure to the grill.
I set mine up with a Quick Couple on the end of the hose at the grill in addition to the tank. The valve on this coupler, available at any BBQ store, will only turn on when it is fully coupled so no chance of an open connection.

As I see in your pic the added quick connect would only work in a BBQ it its regulator was removed and am not sure if you could use the quick connect for extended stay. If I see it right the "T" is after your regulator. If you put an external tank at that location you would be putting full propane pressure to your RV and could have a major issue with your RV. The way around that would be to use a regulator at the external tank when you hook it up for extended stay.

I'm only using mine for my outside stove. I have no interist in a extenda stay. As it is I only fill my coach propane tank every two or three years.

correct. on my napoleon grill, no regulator.
i didn't know there is such a coupler out there, but i guess the hand valve is more secure

a standard propane tank has a pressure regulator. with a hose to connect the standard propane tank to my quick connect port, the propane is already in reduced pressure state which is just like coming out of this onboard propane tank.

Just to recap Mike, did you get the answer to your original question?
