I am considering buying a gas/propane fueled Chevrolet van. Has anyone ever installed a Little Giant Heater to the existing propane supply, or would there be a need to have a separate tank installed to supply heater?
My question is, would there be enough pressure to supply both the vehicle engine and the heater unit?

Have you contacted a fuel heated truckmount dealer with this question? I'd give TCS in Atlanta a call and ask them. They're a good crew that should be able to answer that question.

We used to have a lot of those years ago. I worked for a company that had duel fuel vans and we ran lg's from the vehicles propane tank. Not sure how it was hooked up. I think it was a separate supply line and regulator from the top of the tank.

Best to see a RV guy who does tank certifications. They should have everything you need. I believe the old units we used had a vapour connection that was separate from the vehicle connection. Not teed. It came from the top of the tank.
