Question Exterior camping stove instead original Exterior Grill?

My 2008 Rockwood Pop-up came with exterior grill, which can be attached to the outside wall and plug to a propane hose.
I never used the grill so I gave it to my brother (he was very excited).

Is there any way that I could plug my Coleman camping Stove instead?
(it use the green 1# disposable bottles)
If yes, how?

That will be VERY useful to me.
Thank you.


Here it is:

This is a common problem. The disposable lp cans are high pressure and the RV line is low pressure. Most, if not all stoves that use disposable lp cans won't work off the low pressure RV line. Not sure about your Coleman.

I am going to go with an adapter to refill my 1# bottles directly from an lp tank.

That's a bummer.

Is there a way to connect a T fitting to the 20# propane (before the regulator), one side will go to the Pop-up system (as it was setup originally) and the other to the outside wall where the grill hose use to be?

*trying to think outside of the box here....

You can buy T's that allow you to connect a hose that would go to your stove

Theoretically possible, but unsafe. You do not want a high pressure LP line in or under your camper.

Vibes beat to the punch with a tee at the tank and a flexible hose to the stove. These parts are easily available at Amazon.

Another option ($$$) is to replace your Coleman with a 2 burner stove that operates off of a low pressure line.

To be safe, you need to remove the regulator from your Coleman.

You gave away the BBQ and now you want to replace it? Are you planning to use the coleman on a table with a hose connected to the gas line? Go here to start. You can call them about fittings.

Sorry.You want a stove not a BBQ. You may be able to use the gas BBQ as a stove though.

I use my Coleman Road trip grill with an adapter plunged into my trailer auxiliary propane quick connect with no problems. Just adapted the quick connect line to small green tank fitting & hooked it up, works great. Seems safe enough, burns the same as on the green disposable tanks.
