I had the same problems with the grill hooked to through the TT.. Even bought a different grill thinking that would solve the problem. Wrong. Just not enough pressure because of the regulator. Bought a Weber grill and folding stand. Also got a small 5 # tank and hose. Works great. Keep a 1# can of gas in case the larger one runs out.

A none rv bbq is high pressure an external rv bbq is low pressure. Your stove in your RV is low pressure.
Be careful!!!!!!!!!

I use a Coleman stove on portable cylinders. In 2 years of use I have gone through 3 tanks. The cost of all adaptors and hoses has no payback for the cost of disposable cylinders, I do use orange drop and recycle the cylinders as well. I bought them at Walmart 4 for $9.

(it use the green 1# disposable bottles)
If yes, how?

That will be VERY useful to me.
Thank you.


Here it is:


I carry a separate 20 pound tank for my grill and Coleman stove. The second and third show the hose hooked up to a "Tree". The tree has 2 sections of pipe and you can place a lantern on the top. I got this when I was tent camping and is great when no electric is available.

Thank you everyone for your comments!

Thanks to you I have learned that the Pop-up has low pressure propane system (at 11psi), while the Colman is using a high pressure (at 16psi).

I have decide not to do anything, and just keep it the way it is as the 1# green propane bottle usually last me a few camping trips anyway,
and the price of the hardware will never justify the hassle.
Also I will be safer that way too.

As my daddy bumper sticker says:
KISS! (Keep it simple, stupid!)

I own the same Coleman tree and love it. Do have one problem though.

I can't find a hose that screws onto the tree and has a snap on fitting to fit on my grill. Can anyone help me? Don't need a regulator cause grill is high pressure.

extenda flow

there is a product , though a little behind the times, that might be the ticket for you. it comes with the old pol fittings, that is the drawback, that and if there is physical room at the tank for it. the pol fitting on the tee will screw into the tank but youll need a q-spud adapter to hook the original tank hose to the tee. then youll have a 12 foot hose to go to the appliance. they need to make these with the new acme thread connectors, which they may, but i couldnt find them.
