propane T-valve

Hello everyone, looked around and couldnt find any info that answered all my questions and thought maybe some full timer came up with a good un.

What is the best way to hook up my outside gas grill.

A) Is there a T valve hook up on the kitchen slide?

B) Do I have to run a hose from my propane tank through the coach to the grill?

I have an 04 Dutchstar with 4 slides. Thanks, all answeres are welcome.

Hi dportem,
I don't know if it the best way, but I installed and extend-a-stay on the coach propane tank. One does need to run the hose under the coach to get it to the passenger side. However, the extend-a-stay allows different auxiliary supply/appliances to be connected. Go to Stay A While Deluxe - Item - Camping World to read about the attachment. Go to to see what my setup looks like.

Propane Tee Valve

dportem - FYI -there is another company offering the same T valve setup- - this T valve is installed between the tank (or cylinder) valve and pressure regulator on your RV (on the high pressure side) - many of the newer RV's (motorized and trailers) now come with this type of port/valve in the propane delivery system for this purpose- if your tank is on the opposite side of where you want to have your grille its possible to have an RV dealer tap into the system ( if the propane piping is near that location) and install another port (the system has to be pressure checked after for leaks) -if not then you can purchase a longer hose to reach the other side or wherever you want.

I have the Marshall Brass Extend A Flow Plus and then I bought another 12' extension hose from Tweetys. I haven't had a chance to use them yet.

The Extend A Flow comes with a 12' hose, but that's not enough if you want to grill on the awning side.

For trailers with removable bottles. The Extend-a-flow linked to above

For Motor homes with mounted tanks.. Extend-a-stay (The Extend-a-stay adds the ability to use a portable tank to extend your stay before you visit the propane place)

NOTE: I have seen folks hook an external tank to a motor home using a straight "T" fitting.. Frankly.. THIS SCARES ME since if you don't have the external tank hooked up you can vent propane and go KABOOM if there is a spark.

The Extend-a-stay.. Has safety devices to prevent this.
Home is where I park it!

I don't do enough cold weather camping to justify the Extend A Stay's extra cost. The description of the Extend A Flow indicated that newer, built-in tanks require the Extend A Flow Plus and not just the Extend A Flow, so I got the Plus.

I won't know until next month if it works.
