Propane extension line

I have a Solera and wanted to hook up to the house tank but cant figure out how. I see something below the tank but the fitting wont fit. I got the 12 foot cable from Camping World but am new to Motorhomes and clueless.

IF your home is LP Gas you would have to connect between the house regulator and the house. The quick disconnect on your rig is low pressure. I strongly recommend that you contact your LP supplier as they are ultimately responsible for your system even if you own the tank. You could also connect tank to tank before the high pressure regulators but again please contact your supplier so it done safely

gasman, I 'think' the Op is referring to his permanently mounted LP tank on his Solera as the 'house tank.'

He simply wants to connect a hose to that tank which he purchased at Camping World but the fittings are different.

I'm sorry I can't be of any help. I do not know what the fitting or the hose connection he is referring to looks like? Possibly pictures would help?

Propane line extension

I had this same challenge: wanted to run my gas grill off the RV line, and have the gas hose be long enough to get me out from under the awning. I bought the longer gas line at CW & figured out the connections.

I've attached pics to show how I do it. The pics show
1) the RV's gas feed that I want to connect to "as it normally is"
2 the RV gas feed when prepared to accept nozzle from gas hose
3) the male nozzle on the gas hose that you'll attach to the gas feed
4) the gas hose attached
5) very important! the RV gas feed with the valve open for gas flow

then, working the grill end
6) the female connector end of the gas hose
7) the female connector attached
8) very important! the valve open so gas can get to the grill

Hope this helps!
