Extend a stay?

Has anyone installed an extend a stay (propane tee) on a Sunseeker? When I asked our dealer he said we didn't want to do that. No reasons given.

Thanks,,
Shirley

I ordered one on Friday. Have not received it yet. I do not see any reason why it would not work on a sunseeker.

I plan to add one this coming season. When I discussed it with my dealer they did not have any negative comments regarding it.....

I put one on my Forester and even did a video on it. I use it every trip with a 20 lb lpg tank. I also connect my BBQ to it. One of my best upgrades. Works flawlessly.

Just put one on our 2017 2800qs it works great. It is easier to refill a tank than to have to totally decamp and refill on board tank then reset up.

We paid a mobile rv repair to install ours as we were in a rv park aand out of propane. Looks to be very easy, just do not our tighten the brass fittings and be sure to use a leak tester on all fittings. Our repair guy found a leak at the distance valve that he had not even touched. I was watching and he checked for leaks before starting and after the install.

Extend a stay?

Very easy. Even though I have winterized, we like to keep a little heat. Using extend-a-stay and 20lb BBQ tanks as I type this. Just check for gas leaks and if you used pipe tape, get tape for gas.

I put one on my 2860DS and run a Coleman dual burner stove or a Weber BBQ off of it. No problems yet.
