Fitting Diagram

Make camping more fun and relaxing. Moving your 5th-wheel camper or travel trailer once you've gotten settled at the campsite is a real chore. No one wants to have to pack up, unplug, and go refill the propane cylinders, just to come back to the site and set everything up all over again. This Sturgi-Stay T-fitting lets you connect an auxiliary cylinder to your setup using a fill hose (sold separately). As a result, you can run your appliances off of the propane in the cylinder rather than using up the LP gas from your trailer's setup. When you run out, just refill the auxiliary cylinder and hook it up again.


The disposable cylinder port on the Sturgi-Stay provides a connection point for a small, portable appliance or propane tree. This way you can power a grill, heater, or other accessory without needing to use a 1-lb throwaway cylinder. Simply attach an adapter hose (sold separately) to your appliance and then to the disposable cylinder port on the T-fitting.

Review from a similar Sturgi-Stay in Propane


What I like about this tee compared to other tees on the market is that it has quick disconnects instead of dedicated fittings. Depending on the hose I use, I can connect one or two external LP tanks - for that extended park, without having to move the coach to get the tank refilled. Or, I can connect an external appliance, like my portable LP grille, when I'm on a camping trip. And I don't have to leave the hose attached to the tee where it might accidentally fall down and drag on the ground. When I roll I can just detach the hose and stow it in the basement. Word to the wise - there's not much room in the LP tank space, SO I recommend getting the hose you want with a 1/4" MPT on the end that you'd want to connect to the tee, plus a Sturgis male quick connect fitting that also has 1/4" MPT. Connect the two together with a regular 1/4" FPT 90 degree elbow. That allows connecting the hose in a tight space.

My RV sits for long periods. This part keeps my LP going by allowing attaching an external portable LP tank. It enabled us to use our RV kitchen while we remodelled our home kitchen.

Very pleased with the propane hose and fittings I have received from etrailer. The quality of the items seems excellent. The price was very competitive and the items were delivered exactly when they said that they would be. I will be installing these items on my motor home so that I can hook up a B.B.Q. and a campstove.Very happy with the products and service received from etrailer and would feel very confident recommending this site to anyone.

So disappointed. Paid extra for Made in the USA and now one of the cut offs is leaking. I contacted CS only to find out that this product has a 90 day warranty. I guess American quality and workmanship isn’t what it used to be.

Review from a similar Sturgi-Stay in Propane


I used this product to attach a 12' propane hose from the tank on the drivers side of my 2017 Winnebago Forza, underneath to the awning side of the vehicle to power a fire pit. I took The plastic cover off of the tank regulator, unhooked the regulator, and installed this device between the tank and regulator, then re-installed the plastic cover drilling a new hole to install. (The fire pit has it's own regulator). Very easy to do, no pipe dope or teflon tape required. Counting getting under the MH to strap the hose, It probably took about 45 minutes to complete.

This product lived up to my expectations. I am a seasonal camper and I used this product to connect a 100lb tank to my Travel Trailers LP system. I was able to use my existing dual 30lb tanks as well; this provided me enough LP for most of the season which was my goal. This was while using the water heater, refrigerator and furnace in gas mode. Which saved me considerably on my electric bill. The price was less than that big box Camping store. I am very well pleased and would recommend this product.

Good company to buy from. (first time, but not the last) I think the gas regulator the camper came with never worked right sense it was bought new. First time it has worked right. The original one was mounted wrong from the factory. Parts got here quick, good packaging to keep from getting damaged in transit.

I needed both these units to enable auxiliary propane to be used as opposed to driving the rv for a propane refill all the time Class A thru C RV manufacturers should install these items at the factory. My opinion foe what it's worth.

  • How To Connect Portable Fireplace/Grill To Port On Side of Trailer
    I do have an option to use the portable fireplace with the trailer but to the surprise of most, you cannot use the quick connect fitting on the side of the trailer for most fireplaces or grills for that matter. The reason for this is because most of these grills and fireplaces are designed to be attached directly to the tank which is why they have a built-in regulator. The quick disconnect port on the side of the trailer is already regulated and you cannot use two regulators in-line. Therefore,...

  • Why Does MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting Have Male and Female Threads
    The two threads you pointed out on the MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting for Type 1 Valve # 103612-MBS are on the outside a Type 1, ACME fitting and on the inside a POL fitting. A POL fitting is commonly found on the ASME tank used on motorized RVs to connect the propane tank valve to the RV regulator. Before the introduction of Type 1 fittings, POL fittings were the standard fitting for all propane tanks. Now, both types of fittings are featured on DOT cylinders. The POL fittings are...

  • How To Attach Grill To Quick Connect Port On Side Of RV
    I do have an option for you but most propane grills have built-in regulators and the quick connect port on the side of the trailer is already regulated. Therefore, you'd need to use a tee to splice into the propane supply before the regulator. The MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting part # 103612-MBS for trailers or part # 103602-MBS for motorhomes along with a hose like the MB Sturgis Propane Adapter Hose part # 100284-144-MBS (confirm grill connection type) will work great.

  • Tee Connection for Feeding Propane to Both a Grill and Heater
    The MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting for Type 1 Valve - 1/4" FIF and Disposable Cylinder Ports # 103612-MBS would be what you are looking for. This is a tee that has a port you can run to your BBQ grill and another you'd run to the regulator which would then run to your heater.

  • Recommendation for Adapter Fitting and Hose for Small Propane Appliances
    A vertical regulator can be up to 45 degrees as can a horizontal regulator. You don't want to exceed that on either one. Your horizontal regulator will function fine as long as it is within that 45 degrees. For your application, I recommend the MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting for Type 1 Valve - 1/4" FIF and Disposable Cylinder Ports # 103612-MBS along with the MB Sturgis Propane Adapter Hose for Small Appliance - Disposable Cylinder Ports - 12' # 100284-144-MBS.

  • Solution for Supplying RV Propane Tank to Grille with Regulator Built In
    The issue would be that you have two regulators feeding the grill. What you'd need is a tee installed between the RV regulator and the tank so that you can feed the grill unregulated propane. To do that you'd want the part # 103602-MBS for if you have a POL valve on your tank or part # 103612-MBS if you have a Type 1 valve.

  • Pigtail With Excess-Flow Valve For Connecting Auxiliary Cylinder To T-fitting
    I do have an option for you but the JR Products Propane Hose part # 37207-30605 does not have an excess-flow safety device. I recommend to use the MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay Propane Fill Hose part # 100019-15 instead because it features a ball bearing in the POL fitting that requires a certain amount of pressure to allow gas to flow. If there is not enough pressure for the ball bearing to press down it will not release the propane which means you have a leak somewhere. This pigtail is 15...

  • Can the Big Red Portable Gas Campfire # CAM58035 Connect to Low Pressure Connection on Trailer
    I spoke with my contact at Camco who said that the Big Red Portable Gas Campfire # CAM58035 is only compatible with an auxiliary propane tank and should not be connected to your low pressure propane connection from your trailer.

In order to hook up the generator without disconnecting either tank you'll want to add in a T-connector in-line with one of the tanks. If your generator uses a Quick Disconnect fitting you can use # 103613-MBS or if it uses an inverted flare use # 103612-MBS. Both of the fittings...
