Question adapting camp stove to accessory propane hose

I have a new forest river hard sided pop-up with an accessory propane hose on the side to run the BBQ grill.
I would like to adapt my camp stove (that uses 1# propane bottles) to attach to this accessory propane hose.
Anyone know a simple way to do this, as with a simple adapter?

This has been discussed numerous times on this forum. The answer is no. The bbq grill connection is already regulated to a low pressure - typically 7-10 psi. Your campstove tank adapter has its own regulator to utilize the high pressure of the 1 pound tanks.
Campstoves generally need a higher pressure than the 7-10. The only solution would be to run a high pressure line directly off the TT tanks back to where you need it, and then adapt that to your campstove regulator. I'm not sure running a high pressure line that far is such a great idea.

I just bought the 25ft heater buddy hose and steal the connection in one of the two tanks. Was not worth the effort to modify the grill.... yes it was able to be dobe but it was some redneck engineering.

My local RV store had an adapter kit to do this. It consisted of a hose to connect to the low-pressure connection on the trailer and a regulator shaped valve assembly for adjusting the gas. It replaces your current regulator assembly and 1# propane bottle. I considered it but the $60 or so price tag and the declining health of my grill made me think, 1# propane bottles may not be such a bad idea after all.
