kit to add female quick connect to existing line

I am looking for a kit that will allow me to cut an existing rubber propane line, add a T and a female quick connect.

All I have found so far are systems that T at the tank, not into a line.

Any suggestions?

Auto parts stores have all sorts of T's for fuel lines, etc.

Hey Old Coot Not sure of the laws in NC but in the great white north if you cut a propane line and add a fitting it must be retested and tagged by law. ( you have now manufactured a new line ! )

Turbs I believe the OP is talking about cutting a propane line in half and adding a TEE fitting

We bought one of those "kits" from CW that was supposed to be one of those easy connections. I wanted the quick connection to add an external large LP tank for winter use so it would be easy to move the camper. Since the big tank has a regulator and the on unit tanks have regulators, I wanted to tee into the main line after the on unit regulators. After many trips to different gas supply companies I was able to obtain the fittings to obtain my objective with no leaks. Point is, don't expect those "kits" to be what you may expect them to be or do what you want without modifications.

Our Class C already had the Tee, but the quick disconnect we bought at CW doesn't seem to fit, feels like the female end is too short for the male, but I haven't been able to find any shorter male connectors.

when we were in Idaho had the local propane company add a quick connect to our MH. He added it right before the regulator so we could dis-connect from the big tank and travel. One thing I was thinking about is our detector goes off approx. every 30 days and kills the propane with there flow device and another member said that he took out the auto shut-off which activates by the detector when it goes off. I have looked at it and it looks easy enough. or by past and connect the red wire to the cylinder wire so it stays hot all the time. I replaced the detector approx. 1 yr ago for doing the same thing its doing now.
