I am planning to install a Propex HS2000 in my new to me Hawk Shell. I intend to mount a 5lb or 10lb tank outside on the back driver's side of the camper. I am thinking it easiest to have a connection from the tank to the back wall that I can remove in summer (when I don't carry the tank) and when I am driving. Then on the inside I will have a line that goes from the back wall connection to the heater.
1. Does this sound like a sound plan? If so do any of you have a pictures of this type of system installed? I have found a couple examples online but not exactly what I am looking for.
2. Any suggestions on the connection for the propane at the back wall? I guess I am looking for some sort of propane specific through hull connector.
3. Is there any reason the use hard copper lines on the inside instead of flexible lines? It seams much easier to install and connect the flexible lines.
4. Are there any gotchas related to the regulator that I should be considering? I assume that it will need to be on the exterior and would probably be a part of the connection from the tank to the back of the camper.
