Propane Hose and Accessories in Calgary Needed

I'm looking to add a T connection to my propane tank, then a propane tree accessory.

My goal is to have the propane to the Boler always hooked up. Then when I'm camping I can screw on the propane tree to the tank and hook up my bbq and a lantern.

These propane accessories seem to cost an arm and a leg through coleman or box stores. Can anyone who's done this in Calgary or alike point me in the right direction.

Cheers
Rusty

Rusty, I would highly recommend Fairview Fittings. When I removed my regulator from my BBQ to set up with a low pressure valve, and need all the fittings to hook to the trailer quick-connect, they had everything I needed. A well stocked store, and decent prices too. LINK

Just a suggestion,
We travel with a spare tank in a milk crate with a propane tree. That lets you have your lantern and cooking anywhere on your site. Plus you always have a spare tank in an emergency.

Thanks, That is a good idea, but I want to keep my equipment down to a bare minimum. I'm only doing short weekend trips this summer.

Cheers

Use the 1 Lb. green tanks then. 1 for the stove, 1 for the lantern and 1 spare.
We've got a Coleman Stove/Grill/BBQ that takes one. Our lanterns will free stand on a single small tank.

I have used a hose on the high pressure side of the regulator, for stoves and BBQ's for years. It all packs up smaller than a couple of those tiny bottles, and is way more cost effective to use. I had used the small propane bottle in a crate before, but always found it in the way when it was not needed.

Like everything though, there is no one method that works best for everyone, and how they do things.

(I do sometimes keep one or two of those small bottles handy for quick stops or use away from the trailer)

I was contemplating doing the same thing, but the expense just wasn't worth it to me, I also couldn't find an appropriate "T" to use from the campers tank I wanted one with two male ends (large thread), I know what your saying about the $$$
