OK, I saw another Forester the other day with an auxiliary tank connected to it so I thought I would give it a try. Thank You Fonzie

with the belly tank and all , it kind of sounds like you are set up for liquid and not vapor-------the 20# are vapor only---------I know when I hooked my liquid propane generator to a 20# keg it only ran for a minute or two then died
Might be worth checking out

propane problem

When I had the extend a stay installed on my class C I was advised that it was necessary to open the valve on the second cylinder "SLOWLY" . That if you opened it to fast the safety device would see it as a leak and shut down the flow.

temperature is not the problem....I wish it was 60 here!!!! Is your propane gauge aftermarket or built into the tank? I had problems with an aftermarket gauge on my backyard grill. Just didn't let the gas thru. Try removing it if you can.

My understanding that that T in the line is for a BBQ or some other device its an outflow connection and not a connection to connect incoming. On our Class A I have a extend-A-Stay installed and it was installed before the regulator and is a quick connect. You have to turn off the main tank and then you can connect the aux tank. I have ran our MH off a BBQ 5# tank and has worked great. I think you need to talk to a Propane specialist.

After a little more research I have found out that what I have is called an extend-a- stay connection which is made for connecting auxiliary fuel tanks to your RV system. It also has a connection for connecting a grill. I still do not know why mine is not working. ANY SUGGESTIONS. Thank to everyone
