Buddy Heater Install

Having a gas line installed to use for a Buddy Heater. The shop is telling me that the trailer appliances are "low" pressure and the heater is "high"
pressure. Requiring a new line by passing the regulator. True?
If this has been addressed before, please direct me to the post.
Thanks, Dan

From the owners manual:

•GAS PRESSURE AT HEATER IS REGULATED AND FIXED AT 11” W.C. WHEN USING A REMOTE HOSE CONNECTION DO NOT REGULATE OR REDUCE PROPANE TANK SUPPLY PRESSURE TO HEATER!

The Big Buddy has a low pressure input port and if I read the documentation correctly, it is rated for use in a RV if you follow their procedure

I have a portable Buddy. This heater has a regulator built in. The Big Buddy would require an external regulator. Assuming a remote fuel source. Hope I have this right. Thanks for the input. Dan
