Propane connections for auxiliary devices

I am new to AS. We have a 2007 25 safari SE. it does not have a low pressure disconnect and I was thinking about adding one. After reviewing all the threads I am now thinking of just using a 1 input and 2 output high pressure Y and connecting my grill or generator directly.


I know my auxiliary devices wont automatically switch over when the tank is empty and I will have to manually switch the auxiliary devices. Any other down side to this method?

Trying to keep it simple.

Thanks in advance!

I do not know your setup but we are talking low pressure here, downstream of the regulator. So when you switch the regulator to the other tank, manually or automatically, your low pressure piping is switched.
I use my LP connect almost every trip but have never been bothered by disconnecting the grill when I want to run the generator. I am not even sure of whether you can run a device in addition to the generator simultaneously. If you had a regulator on the generator and ran it off a high pressure T, I am sure that would never be a problem. But mine works fine off the low pressure connection on the trailer.

My grill and generator both run off of low pressure. I put a T fitting in where the flexible hose from the regulator connects to the copper tubing to the trailer and mounted a quick disconnect there. I don't think you could run the generator and anything else that needed much flow at the same time so I just disconnect the grill and connect the generator when I use the generator. Of course you have to have a generator and a grill that run off of low pressure. I think most of the generator conversions do, but some grills want high pressure. To use one of them you have to remove the grill regulator.
