MB Sturgis Propane Fittings - 103612-MBS

  • Tees
  • 1 Inch-20 - Male
  • Type 1 - Male
  • 1/4 Inch - FIF
  • MB Sturgis

Hook up an auxiliary tank to your RV to provide propane in case your primary runs dry during long campouts and get extra versatility in your propane system. Provides you with a #600 (1"-20) outlet for cooking without disposable cylinders.


Features:

  • T-fitting lets you connect a backup auxiliary cylinder to your fifth-wheel or travel trailer propane system
    • No need to break up camp to go refill your onboard tank
  • Type 1 fittings install in-line between your tank valve and pigtail to your pressure regulator
  • 1/4" Female inverted flare inlet lets you hook up a pigtail attached to your auxiliary tank
    • Close the valve on your ASME tank to run appliances with an easily refillable DOT cylinder
    • When valve on your tank is open, can function as an outlet to run an appliance
  • Male #600 (1"-20) port attaches to extension hose to fuel appliances
    • Eliminates need for wasteful disposable cylinders that quickly run out of gas
  • Durable brass fittings approved for LP gas only
    • UL and CSA certified
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Temperature range: -40 F to 350 F
  • Maximum pressure rating: 250 psi


Note: When using quick-disconnect ports for cooking, bear in mind that the propane pressure is still high, as the Sturgi-Stay is installed before the regulator. Outdoor cooktops, grills, or other appliances will often require a regulator. Check your equipment to see if one is required.


Fitting Diagram

Make camping more fun and relaxing. Moving your 5th-wheel camper or travel trailer once you've gotten settled at the campsite is a real chore. No one wants to have to pack up, unplug, and go refill the propane cylinders, just to come back to the site and set everything up all over again. This Sturgi-Stay T-fitting lets you connect an auxiliary cylinder to your setup using a fill hose (sold separately). As a result, you can run your appliances off of the propane in the cylinder rather than using up the LP gas from your trailer's setup. When you run out, just refill the auxiliary cylinder and hook it up again.


The disposable cylinder port on the Sturgi-Stay provides a connection point for a small, portable appliance or propane tree. This way you can power a grill, heater, or other accessory without needing to use a 1-lb throwaway cylinder. Simply attach an adapter hose (sold separately) to your appliance and then to the disposable cylinder port on the T-fitting.

Review from a similar Sturgi-Stay in Propane Fittings


Arrived as described. Disappointed to discover that etrailer.com does not carry mounting brackets for their regulators, but I welcomed the opportunity to dust off my diy skills. Note the bailing wire. Super pro! Also, if anyone knows what happens when one uses a vertical regulator horizontally, I'm all ears.


Comments
Thank you for the review! It looks like the vent placement is one the main differences in the two kinds of regulators. They are placed in such a way that debris from the road will is less likely to clog them. When using the vertical regulator horizontally, the openings are more likely to get clogged which can be a safety issue.

Review from a similar Sturgi-Stay in Propane Fittings


This is my second purchase of this product. The valve works as designed and saves a trip to fill the on board propane tank in the Motorhome. It is easy to install. I am planning on using this one with a Webber grill with a built in regulator. Highly recommend if your interested in using portable tanks(easy refill) with a fixed or built in propane tank.

Well I needed this in a timely manner! So I haven’t been able to install at this time. Shipping sucks with etrailer! You should just buy from [online vendor].

Review from a similar Sturgi-Stay in Propane Fittings


A couple years back, I purchased a different product off the “A” place. It had constant leaks, and the 1/4 inch pol soft nosed connection to the extend a stay tee, was very difficult to seal. Even the cheap, plastic hose broke at the tee end. A lot of propane leaked out over time. Not enough to smell, but soapy water, lots of bubbles. Contacted etrailer, they recommeded this product. First, the tee is made in the USA unlike the cheap Chinese crap I previously purchased off [online store] Second, the connections in this are different, and created a solid seal. NO LEAKS! Third. The two ports are quick connect, saving having to wrench them on and off as I had to on the other model. Fourth, customer service is and always has been first rate at etrailer.

So, overall, etrailer rocks! This is a great product. Saving a couple bucks at the”A” place cost me a lot more than if I just used etrailer in the first place. THANKS GUYS!

Very pleased with the propane hose and fittings I have received from etrailer. The quality of the items seems excellent. The price was very competitive and the items were delivered exactly when they said that they would be. I will be installing these items on my motor home so that I can hook up a B.B.Q. and a campstove.Very happy with the products and service received from etrailer and would feel very confident recommending this site to anyone.

After using for the past year I am still very happy with this product.

I have purchased from etrailer before but not anymore. Received an item that is not the same as pictured on their web site. They show two peices I received one. Can not use this item. Now they want it back with me paying for postage which is more then the cost of the item. Bad customer service.


Comments
I am sorry to hear that you are missing a cap. There must be a misunderstanding as we do not charge return shipping for defective items. Customer Service will reach out to you.

Review from a similar Sturgi-Stay in Propane Fittings


What I like about this tee compared to other tees on the market is that it has quick disconnects instead of dedicated fittings.
Depending on the hose I use, I can connect one or two external LP tanks - for that extended park, without having to move the coach to get the tank refilled.
Or, I can connect an external appliance, like my portable LP grille, when I'm on a camping trip.
And I don't have to leave the hose attached to the tee where it might accidentally fall down and drag on the ground. When I roll I can just detach the hose and stow it in the basement.
Word to the wise - there's not much room in the LP tank space, SO I recommend getting the hose you want with a 1/4" MPT on the end that you'd want to connect to the tee, plus a Sturgis male quick connect fitting that also has 1/4" MPT. Connect the two together with a regular 1/4" FPT 90 degree elbow. That allows connecting the hose in a tight space.


Comments
My RV sits for long periods. This part keeps my LP going by allowing attaching an external portable LP tank. It enabled us to use our RV kitchen while we remodelled our home kitchen.

Review from a similar Sturgi-Stay in Propane Fittings


This product lived up to my expectations. I am a seasonal camper and I used this product to connect a 100lb tank to my Travel Trailers LP system. I was able to use my existing dual 30lb tanks as well; this provided me enough LP for most of the season which was my goal. This was while using the water heater, refrigerator and furnace in gas mode. Which saved me considerably on my electric bill. The price was less than that big box Camping store. I am very well pleased and would recommend this product.

  • Why Does MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting Have Male and Female Threads
    The two threads you pointed out on the MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting for Type 1 Valve # 103612-MBS are on the outside a Type 1, ACME fitting and on the inside a POL fitting. A POL fitting is commonly found on the ASME tank used on motorized RVs to connect the propane tank valve to the RV regulator. Before the introduction of Type 1 fittings, POL fittings were the standard fitting for all propane tanks. Now, both types of fittings are featured on DOT cylinders. The POL fittings are...

    The MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting for Type 1 Valve - 1/4" FIF and Disposable Cylinder Ports # 103612-MBS would be what you are looking for. This is a tee that has a port you can run to your BBQ grill and another you'd run to the regulator which would then run to your heater.

  • Recommendation for Adapter Fitting and Hose for Small Propane Appliances
    A vertical regulator can be up to 45 degrees as can a horizontal regulator. You don't want to exceed that on either one. Your horizontal regulator will function fine as long as it is within that 45 degrees. For your application, I recommend the MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting for Type 1 Valve - 1/4" FIF and Disposable Cylinder Ports # 103612-MBS along with the MB Sturgis Propane Adapter Hose for Small Appliance - Disposable Cylinder Ports - 12' # 100284-144-MBS.

    You do not need to do anything to the MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting for Type 1 Valve - 1/4" FIF and Disposable Cylinder Ports # 103612-MBS to prevent propane from coming out of unused ports/connections. They are sealed until a hose or accessory is attached to it.

  • Solution for Supplying RV Propane Tank to Grille with Regulator Built In
    The issue would be that you have two regulators feeding the grill. What you'd need is a tee installed between the RV regulator and the tank so that you can feed the grill unregulated propane. To do that you'd want the part # 103602-MBS for if you have a POL valve on your tank or part # 103612-MBS if you have a Type 1 valve.

  • How To Attach Grill To Quick Connect Port On Side Of RV
    I do have an option for you but most propane grills have built-in regulators and the quick connect port on the side of the trailer is already regulated. Therefore, you'd need to use a tee to splice into the propane supply before the regulator. The MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting part # 103612-MBS for trailers or part # 103602-MBS for motorhomes along with a hose like the MB Sturgis Propane Adapter Hose part # 100284-144-MBS (confirm grill connection type) will work great.

    I spoke with my contact at Camco who said that the Big Red Portable Gas Campfire # CAM58035 is only compatible with an auxiliary propane tank and should not be connected to your low pressure propane connection from your trailer.

    For a regulator you can use the Camco automatic changeover regulator, part # CAM59005.

In order to hook up the generator without disconnecting either tank you'll want to add in a T-connector in-line with one of the tanks. If your generator uses a Quick Disconnect fitting you can use # 103613-MBS or if it uses an inverted flare use # 103612-MBS. Both of the fittings also...

    I do have an option to use the portable fireplace with the trailer but to the surprise of most, you cannot use the quick connect fitting on the side of the trailer for most fireplaces or grills for that matter. The reason for this is because most of these grills and fireplaces are designed to be attached directly to the tank which is why they have a built-in regulator. The quick disconnect port on the side of the trailer is already regulated and you cannot use two regulators in-line. Therefore,...
