Using an External Propane Tank
Running out of propane in an RV is not fun.
First, you have to find a nearby (hopefully) business who has a propane refill station. Then you have to “unhook” your RV from electric, sewer, satellite, etc connections, pull in the RV slide outs, and drive to the refill station.
Did I say it’s a PITA? It is.
To avoid this I had a local propane dealer install a “Propane T” on our RV propane tank that allows us to hook up an external propane tank.
Very handy. Instead of taking our RV to a local propane station, we can just connect a small propane tank — which you can buy nearly anywhere — to our big tank.

Well that sounds wayyy convenient. What’s a PITA?
Pain In The Ass
Took me a bit but I finally figured out what PITA stood for (before I read your answer to Mary.)
We need indicators on our tanks when they’re getting low and keep a spare in case we run out while grilling. Next we need an old lady friendly way to install that tank under a grill.
