External Propane Hook Up


New member
Hello - Hope someone can help me. I am the new owner of an 85 Vanagon and the previous owner had taken out the internal propane tank and simply installed an external propane line which screws into a regular propane tank. This way when you stop / camp, you simply take out the tank (housed in a milk crate) outside and screw it in to the external line.

Is this good? I mean I never heard of this being done before and I am hoping to get some feedback from seasoned Westy owners.

Come on over to The Samba and you will get tons of information on this subject and on the subject of heating. Unfortunately;not much in the way of participation on this site...sad but true.
