Question asap-Newbie-100lb propane old valve 2 new adapter (ODP)

Hello all,

I'm a newbie to this forum as well as to having an Airstream.

Are there adapters so that I can use these two used propane tanks which have the old style valves with the OPD kind of valve that is on my newly bought Argosy?

I sure hope you all say 'yes' since I've already spent $190 filling them at Ace hardware on my way home from the purchase. Unfortuantely, I didn't realize this was a problem until I later saw this new OPD valve system on my Argosy when having a recent visit to the restoration guy's shop who is working on my rv.

If so, what is the term or name of this adapter so I will know what to search for online or when asking face to face in the local hardware stores?

Please help asap since I would like to start using these larger tanks in the next week or so when my trailer will be ready and sitting on the driveway.

Cheers!

Brian

Either valve should hook up to the regulator. The old valves had only internal threads, the OPD usually have both the internal and external threads. You just need the proper hose to connect the tank to the regulator. I currently have one old valve tank and one new valve tank on my Liner.
