We have a 2000 Country Coach Intrigue with a large horizontal mounted propane tank. We would like to run our gas BBQ off the main tank instead of buying the little green bottles.
I found on the big tank a fitting that is the exact same as that on the little bottles but need to put a shut off valve between the fitting and the 20' gas line I had the local propane dealer make for me.
I would like to use a minimum of fittings to reduce the potential for leaks.
Does anyone have any ideas where to find the proper valve?

Amy Ann, I always run grill off the main tank. Saves the space of carrying the small bottles. The adapter and hose can be bought at Camping World or most any dealer with a decent supply store. It isn't hard to hook up, just make sure you put the adapter between the shutoff and the regulator not after the regulator. There should be instructions that show you how to do it. It only takes a few minutes to install the adapter. Then you just hook up the hose when you want to use it.

THIS is the one I have. It not only allows you to add an external tank in case you run out and can't move, but it also includes a 12' external hose for grills, gas campfire, etc.

You want the DELUXE version what does both.

Amy Ann,
What Jeff posted might be the best choice, for you. It is a kit and comes with the parts necessary to connect an external tank.

To run external appliances from this setup find the nearest propane dealer. Ask them who the supplier is for propane components. Go to that store and tell them what you have and what you want to do. They will be able to provide the components to hook to the Extend a Stay and run a line to your external appliance(s). This will be some connectors and a long hose or two. To get everything right the first time, consider taking the Extend a Stay and an external appliance to the store so they can see what their components will be connecting to.

I found a local to me store and their skill is so valuable, their location is in my toad's GPS.

Each external appliance will need its' own regulator.

did mine last weekend and be sure to use a spray bottle with soapy water to test for leaks. Mine had a few, but a few more pounds of torque with the wrench stopped the leaks.
Very simple to do and maybe a 5 min job.

Just installed mine. Took about 5'. Usually measure how long something takes by how many beers. Hmmm, beer and propane, didn't think that they would mix well Had the beer while cooking on the grill.
