Propane fire pit connection

I have an LP fire pit with a hose that has a regulator at the end of it and the connection for a 20lb propane tank. I would like to connect that hose to my RV propane tank to which I have installed an extend stay T connection before the RV LP regulator. Is there a way to make a safe connection from the Fire Pit hose to the RV connection?
This is the adapter in my RV LP tank (I also have the 12ft hose):

This is the fire pit hose end.

Your connector from the fire pit should connect to the top adapter the small adapter is to connect a 20 lb to the rv if you are low on propane. the fire pit hose the regulator goes to the top adapter the small end goes to the fire pit could be a tight fit to get the regulator on most adapters that fit the top connection have the regulator at the other end like your BBQ

Simple, go to Amazon and look for "Propane Adapter".
You will need something like this..... https://www.amazon.ca/Backup-Disposa...70_&dpSrc=srch

One thing to remember is those fire pits use a lot of propane, so don't run out if you need propane for your fridge.

I've used my propane fire pit since March, about 25 nights with it on high, probably averaging 3-5 hours a night. My propane went from just over 3/4 tank to 1/4. I was surprised how frugal it is, we only use propane for stove top and occasionally the frig other than the fire pit.

I got my connector from Amazon with a 25' hose. The previous owner had a male connector on the propane outlet on the RV, so if you opened the valve you had a major leak, not sure what he was thinking.

Here is what I rigged up to connect our fire pit. I wanted to make sure I had a valve inline to turn off the propane. The end connector is a "throwaway" type for the small tanks, but there is an adapter that goes on it for the larger tank connector.
