Just trying to eliminate the extra tank. I really don't want to run another hose directly from the mounted tanks if possible.
As others have stated, your coleman stove (and other brands) usually has a pressure regulator built into it. When you use the low pressure outlet on your trailer (which has been run thru it's own regulator), then there isn't enough pressure to run the Coleman.
What you have to do is:
1. Run a line directly from your tanks (or a distribution tree), then hook it to your stove...where the Coleman regulator will then make it low pressure.
2. Somehow take out the Coleman built in pressure regulator, then find all the fittings necessary to connect your RV's low pressure line directly to the Coleman stove (thus just utilizing ONLY your RV's low pressure regulator. This can only be done if the grills regulator and flame control aren't in the same control, which some are. I haven't really looked at my Coleman to see if they are built-in together.
Both can be done, but # 1 is the easier to do and find the parts for.
Low Pressure stoves like the RVQ, Camco Olympian, and similar, don't have a built in regulator, and are designed to operate directly from the RV's low pressure line.
