Extend A Stay Question

I have an EAS that I used for my Baby Q. I've purchased an RV Lot and do not want to drive to refill the tank. Is there a hose I can purchase or have made that would allow me to use an external tank? This EAS only has the port for a grill, etc., I'm thinking I could run off the external tank or at least refill the house tank.

Stay-a-while

I think the product you are looking for is called "Stay-a-while," also made by Camco.

I did a quick search and found hits on Amazon (of course).

Is this what you are wanting so you can set up an external propane tank and run the grill from it?

If you have a Tee fitting that only supports an external grill, you have the Extend A Flow rather than Extend A Stay. Two different products. E-A-S has a port that allows a gas line to feed IN to the coach LP system and another that allows gas to flow out; The E-A-Flow product only allows gas to flow OUT.

Extend a Stay

This is the one you want. It comes with the hoses too. It is a 4 port adapter that fits between the tank and the regulator. It has one port for propane out to your grill, and one port for propane in to run your RV from a 20 lb (or larger) tank.

It is what I have, and it works.

It must be an Extend A Flow. I called a local LP dealer and they said the could make a hose..so I'll see. Txs

Since you now own the lot, would you consider a larger tank and monthly / yearly delivery?

Only allow seasonal tanks, only using for the water heater. I've got a tank at the house for my gas logs I never use and its full! Could convert to electric but not sure I want the hassle.

Marshall brass made two different uints

The Extend-a-flow had fittings that matched your tank (POL) one female one male, and a Quick Disconnect

The Extend-A-Stay (Like the Stay-A-While) has those 3 fittings PLUS a 2nd "inlet" a small fitting with a plug in it, that takes a hose from the luggable tank.

The Extend-a-flow is recommended for trailers with removable tanks, Extend-a-stay for Motorhomes with fixed tanks.

Propane is a bit like Electricity (Though there is a small exception for luggable tanks)

NEVER use an outlet as an inlet

I have asked this question before and received one answer that matched what I was told by an RV shop. I have an electric shutoff and apparently electric regulator. I was told by the shop that I could not - or they would not - install an Extend A Stay due to the setup. Anyone else have the same experience or know otherwise. The switch looks like this. Sorry it's the only pic I have gotten around to taking. Need to poke around and see what else I can see.

OP - Thanks for letting me ride along on your thread for a minute. Like I said - only got 1 reply last time I asked so don't think this will lead to a hijack.

Edit - wow - posted upside down. First time for everything.

The problem with the electric shut off valve and the extend a stay is that you now have the regulator "A long way" from the tank valve, this puts stress on things and the dealer may be worried about either the valve or the E-A-S cracking under the stress... Many add a support bracket for the regulator when installing an E-A-S... I did not.

But I don't have the electric solenoid valve either.


NOTE: I said "The dealer may be worried" I did not say that worry about this was warranted (or not) only that he's concerned about his liability if it happens.

I do not know how strong those thigns are.. I suspect "no problem" but... I'm not the one doing the install.

I went ahead and purchased a 4 port and hose to replace my EZ Flow. Txs for all the input.
