Propane Stove Recommendation

Our 2016 251RKS has the propane stove prep. Can anyone suggest a stove that has a connector that will plug directly into the prep on the side of the trailer?

It's a propane pre-connect for a bbq grill.
It's low pressure so the only stoves I know that will work, are popup stoves.

I removed the pressure regulator from my grill and added a hose with a quick connect connection. Larry G.

I ordered a Flame King 2burner interior stove and lid off of Amazon. Built a box for it. Purchased a hose quick connect from Propane Gear. Put it all together. If interested, I can get you a parts list.

Thanks for the input everyone. Wish there was something all plug & play instead of having to make all these modifications to a stove to be able to work in the factory propane supply.

Problem is that most propane stoves are high pressure and all RV propane supply is low pressure.

That's why I bought a Camp Chef stove with a BBQ grill box.
Plugs right into the quick connect.

I don't think our 2017 has a connection on the outside. Where on the trailer is yours?

It's on the side with the awning, between the wheels and the pas thru storage.
You have to bend down & look under the side skirt thingy. Sorry, dont have a pic to post.

I think I found a good option i will investigate more...Camping World has an item# 37764 that uses the on-board low pressure propane connector.
