Connecting Two Propane Tanks
by Michael (Chico, CA)
Question:I have a 10 gallon propane tank bolted under the frame of my motorhome and it isn’t large enough for fulltime RVing. It would be a major undertaking to replace it. I was wondering if I can attach two tanks together, to increase my capacity? I was thinking of using a removable BBQ tank and hooking them together with a propane-rated hose…only when parked, of course.
Answer: What you propose is a simple addition of a tee adapter fitting to allow you to operate two tanks. This is common practice for some RV’ers.
Amazon is your best bet for a tee adapter that will solve this problem for you easily. Caution: Please be aware that whenever you deal with propane there is always a danger of fire or explosion. Unless you are familiar and comfortable working with a fire or explosive hazard please leave this to a professional.
