My RV came with the sidekick grill. I had to buy the regulator/adapter that let's you also use it with high pressure 1lb propane bottles. I needed this, cause my sidekick does double duty and I use it on the pontoon boat as well. It appears from the Amazon link provided above, that their sidekick already comes with with this adapter (which you may or not ever need)

Someone stop me! I can't stop buying camper stuff!!!

Good to know for BBQs. Have you come across any stoves?

Aaah, understand now. The eyes read it, but the brain didn't compute.

Wmtire - no seriously the info was great. I will upgrade my BBQ with the first one you showed in your list. Didn't realize my options there. My challenge is sometimes the stove gets more use than the grill.

Where did you order the fitting from and do you have a part #?

I got it from www.rvparts.com. Part number is QDGMRVN44M and mfg is Fairview Fittings.

I just got my parts from Amazon. Unfortunately, the replacement Coleman regulator is slightly different from my old one. I can't use the new one with a disposable bottle on my stove. Searching Coleman.com for the correct replacement part shows a price of $40, if it's even available. Other sites show it back-ordered.

The alternative, now that I have the new regulator (and ripped it off the card to reveal my error), is to buy a new stove for $10 more than a new regulator for my old stove. Living in Florida during hurricane season, I need a backup kitchen to use at my house, so I guess I'll be doing that sooner or later.

I'll use the old one as my low-pressure stove on the trailer, until I get the new one. Then I'll convert my extra (new) regulator to work with the low-pressure quick connect and sell or donate the old stove. I don't need two.

There's hope. Camco makes a 6' hose with a regulator on one end and a female quick connect on the other. It's half the price of a replacement regulator from Coleman and fits the propane distribution post I already have.

Having converted my 2-burner stove to quick connect for use with the trailer, now I can look like I planned it this way all along. ;^)

Of course, now I have a spare regulator that doesn't fit anything I own ...

When I purchased our 2012 ROO 23SS, I substituted the grill for a stove. A Suburban 2 burner low pressure stove was provided.

You may wish to have your dealer source and price it.

Okay, that didn't work. When connected to the standard disposable bottle with a regulator the flame is large and hot. When connected to the low pressure hose on the camper with no apparent regulator inline, the pressure is extremely low, as is the flame.

The stove end of the connector has what appears to be a Schrader valve. That makes sense as a safety device to prevent a bottle from being vented to atmosphere without being connected to the stove.

Perhaps there's a regulator inside? Does anyone have any suggestions?

I gas up my Coleman like this.





I have a 3 and 5 foot hose for the grill and a camp stove.
Both feed off the gas tree.

By having both a modified low-pressure quick connector a standard high-pressure regulator I can also use it normally with a disposable bottle or with a tree on a large propane bottle.

I may or may not add fittings to slide the Coleman stove onto the RVQ stand but, personally, find that a bit high for my comfort. I'm looking for an acceptable table to use for that purpose, today. I don't want a full-blown camp kitchen.

Thanks for the info I've got a Coleman stove I wanted to hookup, I also want to make a tee so I can run 2 units , stove and a Grill.
