Extra Propane tank

I have seen an extra propane tank they call a boonbubby (20 gal.) connected to the main 40 gallon tank of a class A motorhome. We would like to add this feature to our motorhome. What's the best and safest way to go about doing this. We want it so we can extend our boondocking if the weather turns ugly...Thanks for any help from all you boondockers that seem to know so much...Kathy

The Extend-a-Stay type adapter between regulator and onboard propane tank. I like MB Sturgis QD(quick disconnect) model.

There used to be a device called an "Extend-a-stay" alas. Marshall brass no longer makes but there is now called "Stay-a-While" by one of the portable heater companies,< most RV Stores will have them and the better ones will know it by either name.

This hooks between the main tank and the regulator. It provides both high pressure inlet and outlet,, With check valves and safety devices.. I have one. Very nice.
Home is where I park it!

Had one installed a few weeks ago. Works like a charm. Amazon also sells them.

Had the Extend A Stay on our 2000 DSDP, and used it as the rig had a propane generator. Transferred it to the 2002 DSDP and never needed it. Took it off when we traded the rig.
Like a lot of other stuff, we don't need it in the new rig. Going to have a BIG garage sale later this year with all that RV extra stuff.
NO, I won't sell it till the garage sale!
