Propane adapter?

I have an Extend-a-Stay on my onboard propane tank. It has only one hose which Ive used with a BBQ tank to run my coach. Can it be used to fuel a small BBQ grill from the onboard tank or does propane only flow in, not out?


If it will flow out, can I use this adapter to fuel the grill that was designed for the 1# bottles? Now I wish Id bought the 2 hose package.

For the propane tee (and hose), which manufacturer and part number did you buy (or have installed)?

In addition to the inlet and outlet ports of the tee, does it have one or two ports?

You should be able to use the fitting listed in your first post, assuming you already have hoses and grill that it will mate up to. Though note I had 2 similar adapters, and on one of them I had to drill out the orifice pin-hole up one size to get enough gas flow to operate the grill on high.

The thing to remember is that the propane coming out of the extend-a-stay is unregulated......it comes out at full pressure so if your BBQ has the regulator built-in it will be fine. You mentioned that you use 1lb bottles so you should be fine.

If you are trying to use a BBQ that has the regulator at the tank attachment and you plumb the hose directly it will have too much pressure.....if you have this kind you will need to make a connection after the regulator.

Propane adapter?

I use our onboard propane tank to fuel our BBQ. I followed the RV Geeks video on YouTube when setting up my system. My extend a play fitting is placed in line after the propane tank cut off valve and before the regulator. The fitting I have has three legs. One that is the in coming gas line from the tank. A second that is an out that passes propane to the coach regulator. The third leg is an out that Ive to fuel my BBQ. Because this is a high pressure line, I have a 20psi regulator attached to this third leg. My gas hose extends over to the door side of my coach. I BBQ from that side.

I guess there is technically four legs. That is the one that allows you to insert another propane source to your system. Ive not used that leg yet.

My BBQ (Weber Q) has a regulator. It cooks just fine. Not sure myself if I should remove the BBQ regulator. If it aint broke, I usually opt to not fix it.
