The reason for the larger grill . We do a lot of tailgating at NASCAR races .
I got a 20' hose which should keep it far enough away from the RV.

LP for grill

First off your hose will be carrying high pressure gas to the grill. One would have to leave appliance reg on the grill.
Better to tie in after the tank regulator and remove grill regulator.
Much lower pressure running through extension hose and less gas escape when disconnecting hose. IMHO being in the gas industry for 36 years.

If you look at the beginning of this thread . I thought so also . But this was the only solution I was able to find pieces for . Some people thought after the regulator the pressure would be too low with the longer hose for the grill to operate properly .

If you keep this set up (tee before the regulator) verify the 20' hose and its quick couplers are rated for high pressure LP. Most extension hoses and QC are low pressure. The price for high pressure QC alone runs around $24 at our local RV shops.

While I somewhat agree with the potential issues in the pictured installation, regular leak check maintenance would mitigate the possibility of problems with leakage. Also, using these setups is generally a temporary situation which further lessens the concern. However there is another reason to pipe as pictured. There are some of us who use 20# cylinders as an aux input source for the RV. Since the small cylinders do not have an integral regulator, this piping allows an aux cylinder to pipe through the system using the onboard regulator before distribution to various appliances. The separate source also allows the RV to remain set up and the aux cylinders can be swapped out as needed. I have found that onsite propane delivery is very much hit and miss in some areas because the delivery truck doesn't want to be bothered with a small volume sale. Taking down the set up and running the RV out for a propane fill and setting up again afterward is a pain.
