This is not an endorsement for any of the above.. Make sure the one you get comes with hoses. (I'm not sure about Advernture RV as it did not mention it on the page.
The Extend-a-stay not only allows you to provide propane to the motor home FROM a portable tank but allows you to run your grill off the motor home tanks.
It also has check valves to prevent loss of propane from the main tank or back flow into it from the aux tank.
I recall it has an excess flow valve built in too but I can find no documents to support that.
I know I like mine.
