Can I run my propane fire pit from my grill connector on the side of my camper?

I have one of these -

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008JORKP2/

I would like to be able to hook it into my camper to use the 30lb tanks on the camper, rather than having to haul a separate 20lb tank with me.

Would I be able to remove the regulator from my propane fire pit and connect it to the quick connect on the outside of my camper?

Or, would the camper regulator not feed it enough? It sucks propane pretty hard. On high it will burn through a tank in about 6-8 hours.

If you removed the regulator on the fire pit, you might be OK. May just not burn as high as when connected directly to tank.

Little Red Campfire

I have a Little Red Campfire, which just like yours just a slightly different design. It will not work with the grill connection as that has already been reduced to low pressure. Removing the regulator, will also remove the flame adjuster, thereby eliminating any means of adjusting the flame.

Yes it will work. Remove the oem hose and regulator the get a longer hose (i recommend 3/8" id) and the necessary quick connect and you are golden.

That unit has the flame adjustment on the side of the unit, not on the regulator so it will work fine.

Enjoy

It should work fine once you remove the regulator. I am using mine on my trip right now. DW says to start a fire so we can sit outside so I fire it up. After ten minutes, I'm cold- going back inside! Turn the switch and goes off- no waiting and no water to douce good wood.

My campfire has been converted and works just fine! I had the regulator removed since no point in regulating the pressure twice.
