you mean like this?

DozyAnt 4 Feet Propane Adapter Hose 1 lb to 20 lb

ah, I see what you mean. We use that adapter to connect the grill to one of the RV's tanks directly, so the RV's regulator isn't an issue.

I really don't want to carry another 20lb tank. Right now I carry 4-5 of the 1lb bottles for a Dyna-glo heater. The idea was to use what I already carry. I could connect directly to one of the 20lb tanks.

Could not resist hijacking the thread, sorry, attached is a picture of our first DRW f-350 460 automatic, dual fuel gas/propane. They pulled completely different on propane, I know there was a loss of HP but I thought they pulled the hills better, great at lugging, the RPM's would drop but it just continued to pull.



No, I don't fill 1lb bottles.

NO WAY am I refilling 1lb bottles, my life/limbs are worth far more than a $5 (even if it was $500) bottle of LP.
