Propane Tee Length - Most Compacet Tee.


We want to add a propane tee to our 2019 Winnebago SunStar LX 30T. We had purchased one for our old rig, a 2007 Winnebago Outlook 31C. It was a Camco unit that was longer than the existing space that was available between out tank and regulator. I had to remove the regulators from their cover and had them in space behind the tank to make the tee work. I would prefer to not do that with my new Class A. Can you recommend a propane tee that will work without all this modification?

There's no doubt about it, those propane Tees take up some space and create awkward connections. The MB Sturgis # 103602-MBS would be as good as any of them if those are the connection types you need. Are you adding a Tee for an outdoor grill? Do you need gas that comes after the pressure regulator?

Maybe a better idea is to follow your gas line after the regulator. Most likely there is a hose after the regulator that runs to 1/2" iron NPT pipe that then runs under the coach and goes to the areas that need serviced. I would find a place along that pipe where there is an elbow and replace that elbow with a Tee and to the now extra opening add a bushing to take you down to 1/4" then attach the Camco # CAM59853 quick connect kit.

NPT pipe and fittings can be purchased at any big hardware store. You will also need the "yellow" pipe thread sealant for gas fittings like the JR Products # 37207-30025 tape.

You could then use a MB Sturgis 100304-120-MBS to run from your quick connect to your grill. There other lengths available, like the 4-foot # 100476-48-MBS.

This gets the mess out of the propane bay, gets your connection closer to where you need it, and is quick to setup and take down.
