Grill Adapter/Connector

Is there an adapter or connector that can be attached to my main propane tank so I can connect our grill without carrying additional 20 lb. tanks? I already have a hose extension. Chuck

Yes there is. It is a Female Quick Connector that goes on the hose and couples to the male end on the grill. It is designed such that you cannot turn on the propane until it is coupled.
I have mine teed into the 1/2" pipe that supplies the fridge which is after the regulator. If your grill has a regulator, you need to tie in before the reg OR if you go in after the reg as I did, you need to remove the reg on the grill and install the male connector.

I understand the quick connect and see that it has an on/off valve. But what about the T when this isn't connected? Chuck

I have a gas valve tied into the tee on the 1/2" line to the fridge. I put this in just in case I need to remove the extension hose for any reason and don't have to shut off the valve at the tank.
The extension hose is tied into the gas valve and stays in place. The quick couple is on the end of the hose and as said previous, gas will not flow until it is coupled and then the little black handle can be turned on to supply propane to the grill. PM me if you wish and I will send you photos and a drawing.

There are kits made for just this purpose. A "T" that goes in before or after the regulator. Before if you needhigh pressure and after if you need low pressure. The test is, does your grill have a regulator. If yes before if no then after.

I have a device called an Extend-a-stay, made by Marshall Brass.
Sadly it is no longer made but there is another device,, I think it is sold under the Mr. heater and/or Camco labels which is identical IF you ask any OLD Rv store clerk for the Extend-a-stay he will know what it is, Younger pups ask for the Stay-a-while.

It has.. Gas inlet (POL on mine) and outlet (POL)
Gas inlet (Designed to work with a short extension hose supplied) for feeding motor home from external tank
Gas Outlet (Quick Connect, looks like the top of a throw-away bottle)
for use with 10' Hose also included.. Get 2nd hose Hose has the same "outlet" for a grill designed to run off a bottle you may need an additioal adapter (RV stors will have) this one connects to the hose and has an ACME fitting to match the hose on the grill.

Be Happy! It's still made, available, and for sale! However, there are now many more competitors!

Check out page 123 of their Full Product Catalog, under Camping Tees.

Or, Page 12 or their RV Parts and Accesories catalog.
