Coleman Roadtrip Grill to RV Low Pressure Line

The attached picture should make the connections clear.

The original question was connecting a Coleman ROADTRIP Barbecue directly to a low pressure RV connector, not all Coleman barbecues.

The Coleman ROADTRIP has a regulator that has to be removed in order for the low pressure gas to function in the Roadtrip model. Then, the connection to the ROADTRIP is a special Coleman fitting with a built in check valve, this is not available at Camping World. If you have a Roadtrip model you must take the fitting off the Coleman regulator and adapt it to the quick disconnect hose that is available from Camping World. Then your Coleman Roadtrip barbecue is ready to go !!!
You wouldn't happen have the part numbers handy would you?

Thanks,
Kevin.....

I got the fitting aimed so that the gas bottle cover still works. Very well pleased how it all turned out.
Here are a couple pictures of how we were able to make our Coleman grill work.....With the grill connection between the bottle and the rv regulator.

Trying to make it CLEAR

HI 23CSP,

You wouldn't happen have the part numbers handy would you?
Thanks,
Kevin.....

Hi Kevin,

I am assuming you asking me this question about "part numbers"????

The above picture I posted of the hose that connects a Coleman Roadtrip barbeque with its regulator REMOVED is a home project, not a part number off the shelf.
The step process of this project would be:
(a) What kind of connector is on my RV? Often a quick dis-connect fitting. Go to Camping World and buy the propane hose that will fit this connector, the other end has to be removed and re-built.
(b) The other end of the hose is a complete build. What ever connection it has will have to be removed and fittings purchased at a propane service centre to adapt to the Coleman final "check valve connector". The published photo in the above post shows an elbow, then a nipple and then the Coleman "check valve connector" that was removed from the Coleman regulator.

If you are not comfortable breaking the regulator connection, purchasing proper adaptor fittings and properly making these connections, then it is best that you use the Coleman Roadtrip with a propane tank as designed.

Bob has away to do this above as well, but you will have to buy and build, these hoses will not be a part number off the shelf. Coleman wants you to return and buy their little 6 pack of propane bottles at Walmart.

Ken,

I've got no issue tearing things apart and rebuilding them.. My Gulfstream Visa has a 250 low pressure quick disconnect female fitting mounted from the factory.

I was curious if you had the hose, 90 fitting and adaptor part numbers you used.

I was going to buy those parts and buy the male 250 fitting to connect to my trailer. I was then going to pull off the coleman regulator and connect the adapter to it, the 90 fitting to the adapter, the hose to the other end of the adapter and then connect the 250 male fitting to the other end of the hose and I was going to be done...

Thanks,
Kevin.....

Hi Kevin,
Yeh, I picked up the parts from a bin and said "yes, that's what I need". Sorry, part numbers would not even be known by the owner of the shop where I purchased my hose and fittings. I suggested Camping World because I know they carry these hoses, but the fittings are a good hardware store or gas service centre.

Here's a hose that I put together for my Coleman Roadtrip Grill:


I have a "T" one end so I can connect multiple items at the same time. The male and female quick connects I got from the RV dealer as the ones at the LP shop were just a hair different and did not work. The other end is the brass coupler that I unthreaded from the Coleman Regulator Assembly.

Here you can see how it connects to the back of the grill:


I am getting a second hose made up for a friend and I will get any part numbers that I can in regards to the elbow and the connectors.

Dave.

I realize this thread is quite old. Last summer I upgraded to a TT with LP quick disconnects. I've been wanting to make this conversion as well. However my local Home depot couldn't help me find the appropriate nipple to convert the Coleman grill side fitting to something NPT standard. Can you tell me what the threads on your nipple are so I can build my own adaptor?

Thx
-John
