Thanks! Picture would be a big help.
Do you know if they make some sort of gasket I can use to fill in hole through botton for hose. I will have to drill a one inch hole for the heater buddy hose as well as the stove hose.

Floor
Ok I got busy, but I still have the 3burner. I'll get at it tomorrow.
For the floor I'd do one hole, and a deck plate or some sort of port with door/lid. If it's in an area that doesn't need to be flush, I'd use a wire inlet. I think I even bought one to do mine, just haven't done it. Yeah I'm slow.

Thanks. Will look for that. The hole will be on the floor in the point of the v nose.

:thumbsup:

Perfect! Thanks! I will look for that. I am not going to do a quick connect for heater buddy and just try and use the hose I have to save money as I am starting to get tapped out. I found a spot that works perfect where I can mount plus also pull out to move around if needed. The hose can be hidden in a bottom shelf.

Just need to find right fittings and hose for the stove and I can get er done!

Thanks again!

MrBo, Howdy;

You'd be better served by going to one of your local Propane dealers. Take both
ends and the pieces you are attempting to join into a working unit to them and
allow them to set you up. These are supposed to be the "Pros" let do their 'thing'.
The fittings they have available are not normally available to ACE and other corner
hardware stores.

It can be called many things.
Look for RV power cord access port, hatch, or power cord door.
For fittings my local hardware would have more selection than a propane dealer- oh wait! They got propane too.

That sounded like Hank Hill talking 'bout propane and propane accessories. Strickland Propane and Thatherton Fuel are only still operating in Texas I believe.
