LP Quick Connect to Coleman

I'm looking for some info about connecting my TT's LP via a quick connect to other propane accessories that do not have the quick connect parts. What fittings do I need to, say, connect my back porch grill to the campers supply? What about a Coleman style disposable propane can set up?

You could start with something like this.

http://www.amazon.com/Camco-59123-Pr...YCT1XD77G17CT1

Remember the propane on your RV has a regulator already. You might have to remove the regulator from your grill.

That is exactly what I'm looking for!! I wish it didn't cost 60 bucks, but, after the trouble I've had finding something for this issue, I'll take it!
Thank you!!!

Try the camco #57282 10', go to hardware store get a brass hex bushing 1/8 NPTF x 1/4 NPTF. Take female quick disconnect off the hose. Carefully remove pressure regulator from grill. ( I did this on a Weber Q, should be about the same deal) Using teflon tape, wrap the connections. If, down the road you might want to go back to the canned fuel, get a brass 1/8NPTM x 1/4 NPTM nipple and put the regulator back together with the female quick connector you removed and you should be good to go to reconnect bottle/regulator assy.

You have to remove the regulator from the Coleman stove if you want to tap in to your RV propane. I think the Camco item goes before the regulator if so your Coleman will work. Sometimes there is a room problem with these

This is what I did for my Coleman roadmate which is what Jeff64 is describing I believe and it works perfectly and only cost about 10 bucks or so.

Try Lowes in the BBQ dept. Prices are pretty reasonable.

Looks like you removed the regulator. Now tap in to the RVs propane line (after the regulator) get a male and female quick disconnects and start cooking.

Use the yellow Teflon tape made for gas, the white is for water lines.
