    Can THis appliance be run off my 500 gal propane tank? Under FAQ I found this

    "Question:
    Can I hook my Big Buddy to my regulated propane source in my mobile home, or RV?

    Answer:
    If your propane source is regulated you can hook it to the unregulated quick coupler connection on the left hand side of the heater using our # F271802 hose and quick coupler connection."


    Also in manual it says it "may be operated with (1) f271802 hose assembly connected to a regulated (11" W.C) propane source OR F271803 hose assembly with 11" regulated with acme nut"


    I thought it could only be run off a 1lb or 20 lb tank.

    Thanks

    So, as long as the pressure is the same, the propane source doesn't matter. The threads into a 100lb and 20lb tank are the same. I don't know about a 500 gal tank.
