Propane cook stove

I'm planning to install a new cook range in my hunting cabin. I note that the stove has a regulator of its own. To connect it to a 100lb propane bottle, what else do I need by way of a regulator at the bottle?

ThanX, Jim

Propane cook stove

Got high capacity regulator installed at 100lb tanks location. Less than six foot to range which I plumbed with black iron 1/2" pipe. No issues. I pressurized system and it held steady for 20 minutes. Yellow shut off ball valve on inside wall and 18" flex hose to back of stove. Stove came with kit and instuctions to convert to LP. No issues. Stove top and oven work fine even with both going at same time. Now I'm on the hunt for a 2 tank setup so I can install a second 100lb bottle. Any thoughts as to should the 2-way switch be automatic or manual? Bottles are located on southern side of house tucked well up under eave, even so I plan to build a simple "shed" to keep bottles looking new longer. ThanX, Jim
