|Propane Help Please||Richard||2-27-05|
|Hello and thank you in advance. I just purchased an 85 GMC school bus with a 366 gas engine that was factory converted to run on propane. I plan on gutting it and using most of the space inside to carry my things to move across the country and then finish with a simple camper conversion. I also have a tent trailer that I plan on removing it's sink/stove unit and possibly furnace to place in my bus. I plan to run as much as I can using propane since the bus has an enourmous supply already onboard. Is it safe to tap into the main lines and run some sort of a splitter? I have not seen many schoolies running on propane and that seems a bit odd since so many rv appliances use it as a fuel. I am picking up an inverter to charge my laptop while we drive so we can watch movies at night, and getting one of those coolers with a built in cooling system. I do have a ac power system in the trailer (outlets, breaker box, etc) that I will place in the bus. So I will only have power when I can plug in, but the whole inverter / battery business sounds time intensive and expensive. This may just be my perception. Thanks for any advice or information. I will post some photo's if anyone is interested. -Richard :(|

|Running a splitter should not be a problem, just be aware that you need to have a way to shut off any branch you add and preferably have some sort of automatic shut off. Saftey first.|
Hope that helps!

|The propane lines that run to your motor are a liguid feed.There are outlets on your tanks that specify vapour or liguid.You haveto empty your tank and screw in a valve and regulator to supply your fridge and stove.They are not really that expensive, and always check forleaks or get a pro to do it--even better...|
