Janifer:

Yes, I unscrew the quick disconnect (male) fitting in order to use a disposable bottle.

The 'hi side' means the heater plumbing bypasses the 'Casitas' regulator. In the photo the line comes from the propane bottle, to the 'tee' before it gets to the regulator. If the 'tee' were on the other side, downstream of the regulator, it'd be on the low pressure side.

JJ,

In Don's picture, the tee is in the line from the driver's side tank to the regulator. It's before the regulator, so it's the high pressure side of the regulator. It will only work from that one tank.

PCD,

Neat set-up. Did you have any problem running Mr Heater from the low pressure propane other than it not working when the propane was low? Have you ever pressure tested your built-in regulator?

Ohhhhhhh, by either bottle you meant either BIG bottle. Morgans right on. In winter I keep the 'fullest' bottle on that side. Summer, mox-nix.

mr buddy

:wave Hi there Pineconedon.
we like your hook up. we used the old furnace line (eliminated the furnace) and put in quickconnects. but that means we have 5 feet of hose we are walking on. so we think we'll copy you.
