Camco quick disconnect with shutoff valve. Part number 59853. It will have 1/4" NPT fittings and includes the male end. Google the part number for plenty of vendors.

Why a suggested 40lb max on the size of the supplemental external LP tank? Could a larger, say 100 lb tank be adapted?

Dumb Question ?
I ordered the correct hose.
Its cold here in central Indiana -will leaving the remote tank next to the MH in this cold weather have an effect on the propane for just running my heaters or should I place it on blocks of wood and cover somehow ?
Thanks

I've used 100 pound tanks, even two tanks hooked together, as long as you have the correct fittings.

This will work just fine.

I do have a question for the gurus though. Don't mean to hijack the thread...but.
I have an extend-a-stay tee on my mh tank. When I hook up my aux tank, will the "appliances" suck out of both tanks if I don't shut off the main tank?

Yes, you have to close the valve on your main tank.

Be very careful using vent free heaters inside an RV. They dump large amounts of water vapor into the air and can cause condensation problem.

I figured I needed to, but thought I'd confirm it. Thanks.

Hooked up my remote tank yesterday and ran my heaters while I worked inside last night- all good and works great.
Thanks for the great advise and the part number for the correct hose. Hope the Wifey doesn't want to barbecue anything on our grille.I borrowed the tank.

You're Extend a Stay fitting has a large knurlded knob that can be used to feed a grill, if you have the hose.
