True, and that's what I use.

On the other hand, Larry asked specifically about using the quick-connect in the first post, and mentioned that he was considering a connection at the tanks in post #7... that option is already in the discussion.

Example: Brass Tee w/3 Ports and 12' Hose

I like to KIS.
I agree. Works great. Takes maybe one minute to screw on hose. Works without fussing with any regulators.

thanks for all this information. I continue to read every post with interest.
I'm asking Liz to read the entire thread and make a final decision.

FYI - I was orientated to use the quick connect because we paid for it as an option. And I don't like the idea of dragging along another propane tank when we already have two.

Got that right Brian. I transport mine inside a 5 gallon bucket with a screw top lid purchased at Lowe's, though when I went to both Lowe's and HD in Canada, did not see the screw top lids. Not sure if they are sold in Canada. Holes drilled in the bottom of the bucket for venting. It does make it easier if the TV is a truck. But I like the tanks size, it's weight, and the $ savings (cost me @ $3 to fill it last time, and that was before propane prices dropped) that I would find a way to bring it along if I didn't have a truck. About the only thing I use the disposables for now is the Coleman lantern, and I do not use that often. Last time was maybe 2 years ago.

Take note that BC Ferry has a restriction on the number of propane tanks you can have, so when asked, I say I have two. I do have two, on the tongue, and a 10 lb. inside the trailer. Not sure what they would do if you said you had a half dozen one pounders.

The only place I've seen the screwtop lids is at the local canoe place. We bought them for multi day canoe camping trips.

They are very very good, and you can sit on them as well.
I think they are 5 gallon..

Well, well, what fortuitous timing I have! I also have the outlander fire pit and want to use Bailey's quick connect! I was just gonna swap out the fireball hose with the one ETI provided! And that sounds like it would work! I got lost reading all 5 pages of posts, so correct me if I got that wrong. I have the correct thread tape for gas - after insisting to several Home Depot workers that such a thing exists and I did not want regular teflon tape and yes, I know I am a female and I know what I am talking about.... So my assumption is that the tanks have the regulator needed and removing the fire pit hose regulator is fine. Thanks for the timely thread!!

Works fine off the exterior propane connection. No messing with fittings everything is the right size.
