LP tanks

I feel silly having to ask this question but this is the place to ask it. Are the LP tanks for the outdoor grill the same as the ones for RV's?

Same fuel, same connector, different size.

Yes, except RV people often prefer larger tanks.

Previous posts at AIRForums guided me to install a Y-fitting on my tanks. I now have a secondary hose from my Safari's tanks that allow me to run a propane grill (minimal draw) off my main trailer tanks. Pictures to follow... Don't have the Airstream in my icy driveway at this time of year.

I'll try to post them here later in the week.

Bob, where did you connect the "Y" fitting that you installed for your outside connection?
I've been thinking about doing just that on ours.
Is there a quick connect fitting that can be used or do we need to use the standard BBQ thread fitting ??

You can get it in a package including a hose. It is called Extend-A-Stay. I think I got mine at campingworld years ago.

I added mine under the A Frame.. there was already a connection there. Finding the proper connections was a major pain.

This is after the pressure regulator, so I also removed the pressure reg. from the grill.

There are two ways to do this, Timmah's is perhaps the better way. The extend-a-flow places a T in the high pressure line before the regulator and works with a somewhat wider selection of propane grills, but is more fiddly because liquid propane tends to accumulate in the hose.
