Extend a stay propane kit

Want to hook up external tank for coach heat and BBQ. Looks like I have 2 kit options. Extend a stay and stay a while deluxe
Is there any difference except the 20 bucks or so.
Thanks
Bob

From what I have been able to determine (And I have done some research) If there is any difference it is not major.

Many, myself included, have the Extend-a-stay.. I believe the Stay-a-while is basically the same thing. Just double checked. and on paper. No difference save price.

I can not speak to the quality of the Stay-a-while save to say Mr. Heater has a good reputation.... I can speak to the quality of the Marshall Brass unit I have. 1st rate.

I'm guessing that "No siginficant" difference will extend to quality as well.

I have a Stay a While that has worked fine for nine years.

However since a mechanical engineer I hired right after he graduated from college became the engineering manager for Marshall, I would have bought the Extend a Stay if I had known at the time that Marshall made it.

I have the Marshall Brass Extend-A=Stay and have moved it to my second motor home. One of the things I like about the Marshall Brass unit is that it has check valves in the connections so you can disconnect the external tank and open the valve to the main tank and there will be no leaking through the hose going to the external tank.

I added a brace to help support the regulator after installing the Extend-A-Stay. The added extension with the installation of the Extend-A-Stay may lead to excessive vibration at the connections to the main tank. When I installed my first one, the connection at the tank vibrated loose while traveling on a rough road and caused a leak. After attaching a bracket to support the regulator I've had no problems but I do check the connections frequently while traveling just to be sure.

Good idea!
I also added a brace. That Tee hanging out there was too much weight to suit me. I used a piece of 1X4 cut so it was a sleight press fit between the Tee and the metal shelf beneath it and put some silicon adhesive caulk under the wood. That has worked fine for about 7 years.
