Need some advice from any propane experts out there. I have propane in my house for the gas range and fireplace and also have a quick hookup in my garage for a BBQ. I have a MR. heater 40,000 BTU LPG heater that I have a tank for but wanted to just get a coupler to use the hookup in the garage. I walked into a local place that deals in propane and when they asked me what I wad trying to do, they said I can't because it would not work do to different pressure. They explained that the house tank has it's own regulator so if I hooked up the Mr. Heater to it, it would give little heat. I asked how a BBQ can hook up to it and he said yes but no to the heater. I didn't feel armed to have an educated discussion on it so I just left.
After leaving, I was thinking why can't I just use a hose without a regulator for the heater? Would it not be regulated by the propane from the house tank?
It sucks having another tank going when I have a large tank full for the house.
