Hooking up camp chef stove to quick connect

I saw camp chef sells an 8 foot hose to hook to the camper quick connect. I would like to do this with mine but I would like a longer hose. My question is how long of a hose could be used? I would like to get one 15 to 20 foot. Would that be too long?

I've never seen one that long. Guess you could couple two together.

Just bought two of these to go from the middle of my trailer to my back bumper. I will post pics of my bumper mount when I get my unit from storage yard this weekend.

I carry an extra propane bottle for my portable stove. I did not want to cook too close to my rig or have a hose for people to trip over.

Anyone can use 3/8 brass coupler fitting and join as many hoses together as they wish. However some jurisdictions have codes that limit the length of flexible hose. Usually it is usually limited to about 3 to 4 feet.

I bought a 10 ft hose today at Lowes for $20. I plan to use it for a ventless heater that currently has two 4 foot hoses joined by a coupler. The flexible hose is necessary to snake around some furniture.

Don't mean to thread jack but, this is along the same line. Where can I find an adapter (if one even exists) to go from the quick connect to a gas fryer hose end like you would connect to a 20lb propane bottle?

Most for the hoses available to the RV/Consumer market will be either 1/4" ID or 3/8" ID
with 3/8 being the most popular. Usually you can look in the end a figure it out. There are charts available to size them one location is HTTP://www.regoproducts.com/lpg/lpg-...iterature.html Select serviceman's handbook L545. or Pm me and if I have time I can check it for you.

RickV Most deep fryers/turkey fryers are high pressure and you would need to connect between the cylinder and RV with one of the extenda type tees and use the fryers regulator and hose.

Hope this helps
