My family was in the propane business for @40 years. Here in Tx., any modifications to the propane system on a trailer, other than what came from the manufacturer, such as installing a direct high pressure line from the rv tanks for hooking up to a grill, stove, ect., is considered against the law according to the Texas Railroad Commission. The 20lb bottle with the tree and hose attachment is what we use.

The Tx Railroad Commission is the governing body over LP gas systems here. Sorry, should have stated that earlier. May be different in other states, but you may still want to check on the legality of modifying an existing an already inspected and approved system. May save a headache or ticket later on.

I am just wondering "who" is going to know you changed it ? Or "added" to it .
Gee I would hate for the ole train conductor to pull me over and check my gas plumbing on my 5er .


"By the way sir your camper made 14 states away wasn't supposed to have this here fitting that wasn't previously inspected by my coal shovel guy" " I got the non existing propane blue prints out from forest river and see this here fitting isn't on it" !

Oh boy its going to be a long weekend for me ........

sorry but I am on a roll!

have a great day

I'm not saying that a state trooper is going to pull you over because he notices a new gas pipe on your trailer. But TT's here are required to get state inspections every year, probably in Iowa too, and one thing that they inspect here is the LP gas system, both for safety and modifications. Now, is the local dealership where you get it inspected going to write you a ticket? I doubt it, but they probably won't give you an inspection sticker either, and troopers will write tickets for that. I had actually thought about running a line with a quick connect on it for my Coleman grill and camp stove under the Wildwood we had, but my FR dealer was the one who reminded me of the regulation against it.

Has anyone run a hard line from their tanks to (wherever) and just put the same kind of fitting that's on the top of the tank? Forget the "quick disconnect"-by using the same fitting that's on your tank, you could hook up a full sized BBQ grill, or the hose that adapts down to the small cylinders for the tree/lantern/portable stove, or a turkey fryer, or anything else that normally hooks up to a LPG cylinder. Yes? Good idea, bad idea, will the RR Police come after me? (Sorry dude, I'm also a train guy, but that's just too funny!)
