Little Red Campfire adapter to big tank

Has anyone come across an adapter for the Little Red Campfire that will allow me to hook up to my Forester's propane tank? I have the Extend-A Stay fitting on my motor home's tank and can attach my bar-b-que or a portable tank. But the Little Red Campfire comes with a portable tank adapter as shown in the photo. Maybe change out the hose itself, but it needs the regulator?

Are you hooking up before or after your trailers regulator?

It's not a trailer, it's a motorhome with a built in horizontal 12 gallon tank. The Extend-A-Stay is between the tank outlet and the regulator. As you can see there is a regulator on the Little Red Campfire's hose.

Yea depends on what your extended stay connector looks like. From the sound of it you will be hooking up before the regulator so Tombsy is right if you have the mini adaptor available on it then you just screw the campfire regulator on to that adaptor. If not you may need both that and this.

dbledan, That looks just like my Extend-A-Stay. Looks like I need an adapter with 2 brass ends. Just saw one at CW for $65. May work, but I want to see if there is something cheaper. It would give me a lot of extra hose.

The one Tombsy sent the link on was only $25 and you could get a small hose extension as well. You may be able to get a Y adaptor as well but those are $25 too.

Good luck hope it works out.

I was able to buy an adapter for my gas fireplace on Amazon. If you are tapping into your RV the gas is all ready regulated so you need to eliminate the regulator on the fireplace. Same situation for my Coleman grill. Just check the fittings and match them to the hose.
Sorry reread your post, sounds like the extend a stay is an input for your system to allow connection of an external bottle. Match the fitting then put an in line regulator to the same spec as the one on the fireplace and you should be good to go.
