    Cinn WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT? TIPS AND TRICKS :
    December 3, 2019Has anyone attached an external propane tank to their *motorhome* for boondocking long periods? My 18 gallon propane tank doesn't last as long as my water tanks, and it's inconvenient to have to move sooner just for the propane. Any detailed tips, photos,...  more

      Aladyfromtx December 3, 2019 I swapped my 20lb tanks for 30lb tanks. When I'm at my home base, I have a 70lb tank.

      Tina and Eugene King December 3, 2019 Cinn I have used a 100lb  . I tied it up and just hooked one of the hose to the tank.  Most places require you to have a external carrier to transport.

      SouthParkSteve December 3, 2019 Up here in the mountains, local propane companies will deliver a 125 gallon tank (similar to a residential propane tank, but about half the size) and keep it full for those staying in their RVs for the winter.  There is a product called Extend-a-Stay...  more

      Robbie & Alice December 3, 2019 Hey Cinn, I use Extend-A-Stay and swap bottle(s) instead of using the motorhome tank.

      Stuart & Patti December 3, 2019 Yes I have a 100 pound bottle connected to my motor home at this time I use the extend a stay and have hook up for a bar b que or other things that will connect to hose which you can get different fittings on the end of hoses

      Cinn December 3, 2019 Is the Extend-A-Stay something I can attach to the tank myself, or does the propane guy do that?

      Jim & Sharon Ham December 3, 2019 Marshall Brass Company makes a complete LP kit called Extend-A-Stay with proper fittings, hoses, etc.  Shop Amazon or Camping World online for selection and prices.  It does require some hefty wrenches, thread sealer, and leak detector fluid for...  more

      Mke & Mary Edwards December 3, 2019 This is how I did it.  Be sure to use hose that is good for LP gas and a shut-off valve. You will also need a regulator, I have a one that is for a gas grill and it works fine.

        Mke & Mary Edwards December 3, 2019 Also, remember to get a tank you can handle (mine is 40lb weighing 70+ lbs when full) and in transport the tank must be "Upright, Secure, and Ventilated".  Yo cannot legally transport one in the trunk, laying down.

      Benji December 3, 2019 I like the BBQ sized tanks because you can exchange them at any big box store I carry a spare one to tide me over

      AZRickey December 3, 2019 Take a look at camping world for a Stay Longer Propane Adapter Kit. This kit allows you to temporary add refillable tanks to your RV without disconnecting your main tank.
    • Cinn
      Jeff and Sandra Doan December 4, 2019 I bought a manifold from Home Depot ($20) and attached it to my RV after the regulator. I use a Flexible hose to a 250 gallon propane tank. The flex hose is available from Amazon for about $65. "GASPRO 24 Feet 1/2 ID Natural Gas Hose, Propane Gas Grill Qu...  more

      The Rolling Stones December 4, 2019 You go through 18 gallons (72 lbs.) of LP before you use up your Fresh Water and fill your Gray & Black Tanks while Boondocking?  Hmm, something doesn’t sound right.  We had a propane coach years ago and spent most of the winter in it (Illinois)...  more

      OurMobileBackPack December 4, 2019 I installed a extend a stay on our RV it took about 20 minutes, easy install. I did post a video on this awhile ago on my youtube channel. Our channel is named our mobile backpack

      Andy & Maureen T December 4, 2019 Yes, we have. It's called an "extend a stay propane kit." We got ours at Camping World. You do not need to add a regulator, and it is very simple to installl. Here is the link for CW:    www.campingworld.com/stay-longer-propane-adapter-k...  more

      Todd Ramsay December 4, 2019 You use 18 gallons of propane that quick your furnace is either set to Hell and you grill alot or you may a leak I would have all your lines checked. Seriously..

      TheClearyClan December 4, 2019 We have a 2010 Gulfstream Yellowstone, a 32 foot Class-C. We have a 7 gallon built-in propane tank. Our heater can drink that tank down to near empty in four days of mid-thirty degree Fahrenheit weather. Our rig is in no way a four season camper. On the o...  more
