I've always heard about and talked to those who have done it but they were able to just call the local propane dealer who would lease them a tank, bring it out, and connect it. I don't recall any DIY'er going it alone.

all u need is the transfer hose that goes from the valve on your 100lb bottle to the fill valve on the mh most likely lay the 100 lb bottle on its side we used this method when filling a vehicle that had run out of fuel
only using a 20lb bottle

We have our 100'er fed in through our split distributer (for two independent tanks) using the standard quick disconnect seen on grills. I did buy my original hose from my LP dealer for $30 but have since seen them at Tractor Supply and on Amazon. Personally I would not build my own though; I am a little old school believing somethings still require an expert.

Also don't forget 100'er are reversed threads, seen a few RVers fight with this, including myself... LOL!

Just pick up an "Extend-A-Stay" adapter, and run your hose to it, and Bob's your uncle.

A good down comforter is one of the best things we have bought for the motorhome.

I'm 63, and think the cuddling sounds nice, but electric heater is even better! Or electric blanket.

I believe propane tanks must be used in the position that they were designed to be used in. You want the gas vapor to burn in appliances. If you lay a 100 lb tank on its side you take a chance of the liquid entering your system. I'm sure there are more knowledgeable folks here to help you out. We lived in a 5er for a winter and I used a 100# tank in the upright position with a stay a while kit from the local RV supply store. Worked great for us.
