There several suppliers (Marshall Brass, Mr. Heater, Camco) of TEEs without a hose and of kits containing a TEE and hose(s). I don't see much difference between the various brands, so I would pick the one with the best price.

There are several versions of the TEEs and kits and the choice depends on what you want to do. The 3-port TEE is used to connect a gas grill to your RV's LP tank. The 4-port TEE can be used either to attach a grill or to attach an auxiliary LP tank to your RV's LP system. The kits include both a TEE and 1 or 2 hoses.

Don't know about the other brands but the Marshall Brass Extend-A-Stay has check valves so you can disconnect the external tank from the hose and open your motor home tank and not leak propane.

Consider adding a brace to support your regulator if you install one of these. There can be quite a bit of vibration going down the road and cause the fittings to loosen. Happened to me.

I just bought a Stargi Stay QD model to replace the older leaking extend a stay that came on my motorhome. It has QD fittings plus manual cut off valves for quicker hook up and the hoses seem to be of high quality with better quality crimps than you typically see on mass produced BBQ hoses.

Seconding what Pete says above about adding support for the Tee/regulator.
This is a picture of the 1 X 4 I cut as a slight press fit under the Extend a Stay Tee. I put a little silicone adhesive under the bottom end of the wood.

Well, as you pointed out Mr. Heater and Camco both have offereings that are, near as I can tell, and I've looked very close.. IDENTICAL.. My guess.. Patent expired.

By the way.. I'm am kind of a "Supporter" of Marashll Brass growing up, as I did, just two townships SOUTH of Marshall and often visiting there.. Marshall has one of the oldest Traffic 'Round-a-bouts" in the country.. The Brooks Memorial Fountain is in the center,, Marshall was considered as the Capitol of Michigan (Lost out to Lansing) and there was an Official Residence built there... Complete with escape tunnel.. My mother worked in Marshall for many years. It is also known as the Christmas City, taking great pride in their annual Christmas decorations and celebrations.

And one of the finest restaurants in Michigan. Is in Marshall.. Schuler's. If you are driving a house there is a church just south (As in across the street) where you can park during the week for Lunch or Dinner/supper.

Ah, I see. Used to be Marshall Brass. Guess they spun off that portion as "Marshall Gas Controls". Thanks for the update.. Will remember that. Thanks.

The link you sent me was Amazon dot com. Doing some research I found marshallgascontrols dot com, but no compay info, no "contact us" no "About us" links on that page... They did list several CAMCO items though
not sure that is a real company.

It appears that they have changed their name to Marshall Acquisitions, Inc. and sells to the RV industry and Amazon directly. Marshall Gas Controls is a subsidiary name for marketing the products. See HERE
