This doesn't really answer your question but....
My 2000 Coleman Westlake had an external gas disconnect that bypassed the regulator up at the tanks. I got an extension hose to run our Roadmaster grill from the camper gas line instead of using the small bottles.
The downside of this arrangement with high pressure take-off ahead of the regulator is that the now-standard regulator with built-in switch between tanks and pressure gauge doesn't work so well with a take-off in front of it. On the Coleman camper, I manually re-attached the output lines to the other tank when the first ran out.
Frankly, using the camper gas line was more hassle than using the small bottles (in our usage situation). Even powering a grill, the small bottles were good for at least a meal each. Portablility with the small bottles is/was a big plus for us. Could locate the grill anywhere on the site we wanted to use it.
With a 2 burner stove that does all our cooking the bottles typically last 2 or more long weekends (cooking and hot water for cleanup 2 meals a day for 3 days).
Since I have the outside shower on the A122 (never used as a shower so far), I am looking to mod that a little to use as a hot water dispenser for dish washing/cleanup instead of a kettle on the stove.
just my thoughts and experiences
