off the top of your head ... propane

So, as I make up my list of things to bring camping, I notice some duplication... in addition to my two 40lb tanks, I also have a 20 lb tank for my Fire Dancer campfire and a few 1 lb tanks for my Kenmore tabletop grill. Hummmmm - I know I can get some adapters but, after 20 minutes of searching, I'm more confused.

I'm looking for an adapter & hose for two seperate uses: (a) to use the Fire Dancer & Grill via a portable 20 lb tank and (b) to use them both via my AS 40 lb tanks. Do I need two adapter/hoses?
  • The grill has a fixed regulator (well, it will come off with a wrench & pursuation) in which a 16 oz canister mounts.
  • The Fire Dancer has a regulator affixed to the 10' hose that secures to a 20 lb cannister.
  • My 40 lb tanks have the OPD valve, but no (QD or otherwise) adapters in place.

BTW I got a hold of the guy doing the control panel. He did forget about it but is going to do it now and he has your address. He will mail it to you and include his address so you can return payment.

Custom Parts If Needed...

can be purchased from MB Sturgis. I had Sturgis make up a hose for us that connects to the 40# tank, allows me to connect a propane fire and a grill simultaneously, while still allowing the 40# tank to feed the trailer.

The whole set-up cost me about 1.5X of the PPL parts mentioned in post #2. But I have 50 ft. of hose that I can route just about anywhere. If I can find some pictures I'll post them later.

Sturgis has some off-the-shelf fittings and hoses for RVs but I opted to call them, sent a sketch to them, and they provided exactly what I wanted.
