You do not need a regulator the gas your using is already at reduced pressure so the control valve takes the place of the regulator.

I bought a hose from Camper world and tried it on my coleman propane stove this past weekend. It did not work, I had to use the small cylinders. I suspect the regulator on the coleman stove was the problem. Is there anyway to get rid of the regulator on the stove since the camper supply is already regulated?

Someone stated they got it to work on their Coleman Roadtrip grill which is what I have. They just removed the regulator that screws into the back of it and connected the hose right to it. If I find a hose I will let you know.

It depends on what you're planning to use at the end of the extension hose. We looked into the possibility of either a high-pressure extension or a low-pressure extension to run our Weber Q-220.

I did a lot of research on the various RV newsgroups and found quite a few reports of problems. A recurring one was that the RV's regulator wasn't sensitive enough to keep the grill temperature within reasonable limits. One poster said he couldn't get the grill below 600 degrees.

I wasn't comfortable with having a 15 or 20' hose with high-pressure propane in it. My final solution for out Weber grill was to buy a "squatty" 10-pound cylinder that has the same base ring size as the 20-pounders. I then bought a "base stabilizer ring" from CW and bolted it down to a stow-bin floor. I keep the 10-pound bottle about half full, so it's not a big deal to move around. I pull it out of the stabilizer ring and set up the Weber wherever is convenient, with the 10-lb cylinder hooked up.

Works a treat and no concerns about long HP gas hoses.

I just have a cheapo walmart stove I have had for years that I use to do messy frying outside. Guess I will just use the propane bottles.

I have never used the camper propane hook up, and probably never will. I carry a separate 20lb tank, a folding picnic table that does not have the benches attached, use a "T" adapter that i picked up at Wally World, set my grill and propane stove on the table, the tank under the table, and run both the grill and stove from the one separate 20lb tank off of the "T" adapter. I did have to get a second adapter to hook the grill to the "T". I prefer to cook outside, and away from the camper if possible. About the only thing I could see us using the hook up on the camper for might be a propane fire pit to set under the awning for chilly mornings, when it's just me and the wife.

These are the items I use to hook up the grill and stove to the same 20lb tank, and it works pretty well.

Coleman 111390 Propane Tee-Bulk Adapter: Marketplace : Walmart.com

Coleman 1-Pound Propane Tank Adapter - Walmart.com

Coleman 8' Propane Hose - Walmart.com

And if you want to run a lantern off the same tank, so you have light at your cooking station away from the camper, you can use this in place of the "T", and put your lantern on the top.

Bingo, I use the same setup from my tent camping days!
