    My propane regulator has the old style POL connector, so I need a wrench to attach it to my 20 pound tank. I want to remove that POL fitting and replace it with a modern Acme nut. I noticed that they come in different colors, based on capacity. I'm not sure which color I need, but I believe I need the light green one, which is rated at 200,000 BTU. My pop-up has the usual stove, fridge, and furnace. Any insight on this would be appreciated!
    Thanks, Andy

    Well I believe my furnace of my 2800 sq ft house here in MN, where it will sometimes dip to -30 degress actual temp is like 80KBTU, so I think you're pup is good with 200K lol

    any color will work, black is 70-100KBTU and that ought to be enough, RVs usually have green on a pigtail with the regulator secured to something.

    I used black
