I went ahead and ordered the "Big Red" campfire, along with a 4ft pigtail quickconnect hose, and a 10ft quick connect extension hose with an on/off lever (which I hope should be good for flame adjustment)

Should all be here Friday, so may be able to test it out over the weekend, weather permitting

An on/off lever on the outside connection on the 5er? Maybe I was reading wrong but have never seen an on/off lever on one.

The outside gas line is low pressure. If connecting something that requires a high pressure line most just remove the regulator off what they are connecting. Say you are hooking up a 2 burner Colman stove, remove the regulator from the stove and you are good to go. You use the controls on the stove as normal.

Sorry if I misread something and am off topic.

I haven't seen one either. The only on/off lever for our outside grill is on the grill propane inlet.

However, I ordered the hoses linked above, one to replace the hose with regulator that comes supplied on the campfire (which has a regulator and adjustment dial), and one as an extension for hooking into the camper quick-connect. That extension has a control lever, which should allow us to adjust the flame on the campfire.

I'll hopefully get to check it out over the weekend.

The lever on the RV hose is to keep someone from seperating the quick coupler while the barbe's on....do a test...try to uncouple it with the lever on...

so it's a locking lever, not a flow lever ?!?
If so then I guess I need some other adjustment valve, though I guess if it shuts off the flow before allowing disconnection then in theory it should still work just fine for limiting the flow to the firepit.

Any ideas ?

What was the fix ?
An inline adjustment knob ? If so how/where did you attach it ?

If the lever valve on the hose doesn't work (which to me looks like it should), then I'll just get a 3/8" gas ball valve, and fit it at the campfire end i guess (unless the quick-connect on the other end of the pigtail is removable)
