Getting the most from your propane tank

Sometimes cooking in a small space with only a single burner can be a real pain in the rear to put out a decent meal and keep everything hot at the same time.Not to mention the added smell to a confined space.
I went to a speciallty hose and fitting shop and had them make a 15 foot long hose that connects to the propane tank and has an adapter for propane camping appliances like the coleman stove with 2 or 3 burners.
I figured compactness was important and carrying around several bottles of propane was a waste of space for those who like to cook outside of their BaseCamp.
You could carry this concept out even further with a Tee fitting for other propane appliances.
I believe there is a quick connect fitting underneath the BaseCamp with a diverter valve for this purpose.
