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...
