Most places consider these to be a barbeque rather than an open fire so they can be used where you cannot have an open fire.

If I could jump in here with a couple questions that would be great!

I also have an LP fire Pit and I'm trying to figure out if I can run it off my Exterior "A-Frame" Port. Now I'm aware that the port is what they call "Low Pressure" and I'm assuming what that means is the port is already Regulated at the tanks. So one would need to make sure you are NOT running second regulator at the fire pit. (Right?)

In my case, my original fire pit hose has the regulator at the end that would normally connect to a tank. So am I correct in assuming that I could substitute the original hose with a longer (non-regulated) hose I should be good to connect to the A-Frame Port?

In the end, I would like to get to the curb-side of my coach so this new hose might need to be 20 - 25 Ft. long. Is the length going to be an issue?

With luck someone can shed a bit of light on this

If the device is down stream of the tank mounted regulator, you should be able to run it off the low pressure side. Residential systems have two regulators, the first one drops the pressure to about 5 psi and the second one drops is to 10 inches of water or something like that. Your low side is the 10 inches of water. A high demand device may need the 5psi supply. You will have to try it. You could also put a gauge on the line.
