This made me think that the 20lb end was not going in far enough to engage the valve on the tank.
However, after doing about 1 hour of research, I found a factoid on the propane check valve, which is required on all propane tanks after 1998.
According to this article (just search for "reset propane check valve"), what happens is if you have a high-pressure line hooked up to the propane tank and just "quickly" open the valve on the tank, the check valve will "burst" (open) and gas will not be allowed through the tank into the line. (I think the tank thinks there is nothing connected to it, so the valve shuts off the gas)
Once this happens, you need to "reset" the valve:
a. Turn off the valve on the tank, leaving it connected to the heater/grill, etc.
b. Disconnect the hose from the propane tank, but not the appliance.
c. Turn on the appliance (or leave it running before step a), and let the pilot light or burner stay lit until it extinguishes (This will purge the remaining gas from the hose.
d. TURN OFF THE APPLIANCE.
e. Hook the propane tank back up, ensuring the valve is closed.
f. With the hose now hooked up to both the appliance and the tank, SLOWLY open the propane valve a 1/4 turn, and you should hear the hose pressurize. This has told the tank that there is something hooked to it, and the check valve did not engage.

For those of you who are leaving low feedback scores because the ends of the hose are not correct for what you’re working on, is that really a fault of the hose? Not really understanding that. My suggestion is to ask first if you are unsure. There is plenty of info on this hose all over the internet. It is sold by many dealers. So you don’t need to make the mistake of buying it incorrectly and then blaming the hose for not having the ends you needed. Hate to see an excellent product like this degraded because of a consumer mistake.
This hose is all you need. You don't need anything else. You don't need a regulator. However, adding a fuel filter wouldn't be a bad idea.
Both ends of this hose are suggested to be hand-tightened. Fine. However, I couldn't get mine to pass gas. The fitting going into the heater needed another 1/8" of turn at which point the gas flowed freely. Apparently the fitting is quite sensitive. This required a wrench as I had tightened it as much as possible, by hand. You may, or may not, need to do this.
The hose itself is of good quality, and so are the brass fittings. Nevertheless, the hose needs protection from abrasion and assorted abuse. As a reminder, recall that the fitting going into the propane tank must be turned counter-clock-wise to tighten, as opposed to normal threading which is turned clock-wise to tighten. Finally, remember to turn off the gas at the propane tank, and letting the heater burn off the gas in the line, so as not to turn the Plasticizer in the hose into gunk, which would clog up your heater.
(There is another hose, without the Plasticizer being sold by Mr Heater, but of course, having no Plasticizer, that hose will be stiff as heck.)
