I suggest putting the 20 or 30 lb tanks into a milk crate. Much easier to move around, and to keep it in one place. Make sure it's stored upright, and outside your passenger compartments. Ensure the gas outlet has a plastic cover as well.

I use those tank feet sold at CW to transport my cylinders in the bed of the TV. They're very light and prevent the cylinders from tipping over.

Places like Harbor Freight Tool have kits (a hose, valve and fittings) that let you refill the disposible gas cylinders from the larger 20# tanks. This greatly reduces cost of using the small containers -- and save you trash the empty cylinders (which the garbage men refuse to recycle in my area - guess one too many went KABOOM).

I have a question on LP tank pressures:

I have a TT, has two 30 lb cyl with reg/changeover valve manifold that is connected to std appliances, ie furnace, hw heater, stove, refrig.

quesiton:

LP tank pressure can vary with outside temp; 10-150 psi and then regulated down to 11 in water gage press by the reg/changover valve on tt , correct?

Now my question: small appliances, grilles for example are designed for low pressure operation i guess, since they all seem to have built in reg, having a 1 lb cly inlet to the reg, i assume the output from the reg is about 11 inches of WG pressure, ie low pressure.

with this said, if i got a 20 lb cylinder, i should be able to connect the hose adapter kit from camping world to the unregulated outlet from a 20 lb tank and go into the regulator supplied on the grille and it should work ok, correct? would would the low pressure hose arrangement work for this, or does it have to be a high pressure hose arrangement. btw , what is the definition of low and high pressure

thanks

Outdoor grill

We have the same TT '09 LE 29BHBS with no outside grill. I chose CW's stainless Steel mountable grill and LP Quick connect hose. Waiting on it to ship. Haven't had our TT out yet due to NE Ohio weather (4"-5" of snow) but anxious to go. Thanks for the tip on whether to tap in to existing TT LP line or bring a 20# tank for grilling. The later sounds like the best!

You can use the hose adapter kit from CW to connect the 20lb bottle to the grille and it will work. It will need to be the one used for propane, high pressure. The built in regulator on the grille will drop the pressure to the correct pressure.

High Pressure: Prior to reducing regulator, Low Pressure after regulator.

Propane is classified High Pressure Gas. Natural Gas is commonly classified as Low Pressure 1/4 lb. unless it's a 2 lb system then it's classified as High Pressure. Both require regulators to reduce pressures to correct operating pressures. Propane 11" Water Column, Natural Gas 3" Water Column based on a U-Tube Manometer.

Thanks for the advice. Since my post, my Olympian grill and LP hose quick connect has come and I think I will buy a 20# tank to use with the grill.
