I've been wanting to do this for over a year now. The applications look real easy for a trailer. I've got a MH though. Any thoughts on applying a "T" fitting to the main tank with the same ease & safety as a portable tank? So far I'm leaning toward putting a shutoff after the "T", then a quick disconnect. Then attatching the 12' long flexible hose with a 2nd Quick disconnect. I've never seen these 12' long hoses anywhere. Are they available at most RV stores or do I need to have one custom made?

The bbq department at Lowes carries a 10' natural gas hose for $35 with 1 quick release fitting that I am attempting to adapt as you mentioned. Keep in mind there are several thread types and you need pipe sealant on all the joints and the quick release has a flow direction on it.

This has turned out to be much more of a project than I imagined it would be.

Easy on a motorhome

I just completed this on my MH. All you need is an Extend-A-Stay fitting & an appliance hose. Plan ahead & buy a long hose. The 5' one the salesman handed me barely clears the curbside awning. Note the unusual kink in this supply line between the fitting & pressure regulator. I'll be replacing this as soon as I find one. The fitting allows me to hook up a smaller tank should the main tank go empty.

Additional information

The Extend-a-Stay fitting has 2 connections. One is for an external LPG supply. The other is for connecting the cooking grill.

Sure. Works great. I added an RVQII to my A/S, tied in at the LP run heading to the water heater. RVQ has its own 1/4 turn valve/quick disconnect so no trouble. It also has its own regulator. Hang the grill on the side of the camper and cook.
