Low Pressure Propane Stove

I'm looking for a propane stove to hang on the side of the trailer (instead of the BBQ). Sometimes it will be handier than a BBQ. Dealer said it must be a low pressure unit. Any suggestions ???

I use this. I bought a quick connect hose so I can plug it into the camper and then I set it on a table. The quick connect hose does not have a regulator and the stove will run off the low pressure connection on the camper side. You could also make a stand to go on the side rail if you did not want to use a table.
Actually you can do this with any camp stove that has the regulator attached to the hose.

unless you can find some of the low pressure stoves that popups come with.

I plan to modify an old gas connector/regulator for my standard 2-burner Coleman propane camp stove using the approach described below. 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.

Good video! Informative.

The OP of the video describes the Coleman fittings as "proprietary". I can't refute that but think they're not. Instead, they may be "fine-threaded", reference to which I've seen in my search for quick-connect fittings. If so, you won't find those at a big-box home store or your corner hardware store but you might find them at a commercial plumbing supply shop.

I'm fortunate in that the old regulator for my Coleman stove is threaded at the regulator end, not welded as some appear to be. The aluminum pipe is fine-threaded into a brass fitting that has a standard 1/8" male brass thread (or however that's properly described.)

Home Depot had a 1/8"-to-1/4" female-to-female adapter that fit. The 1/8" end fits the regulator brass fitting; the 1/4" end will fit a Camco quick-connect fitting ordered online.

I bought a new Coleman high-pressure regulator to replace the one I hacked, while I was at it. Now I'll have both.

I did the mod to my Coleman grill and love it. Got most fittings from a small hardware store. Had to get the quick connect online because the one they had was the wrong type.

I rigged up gas connections/adapters for my outdoor stove from my last Coleman popup and for a Coleman green camp stove. Both would not create a large flame when turned on high due to stove design (Even with out a regulator connected). Thanks for the link to the Camp Chef stove. That will be my next addition.

Grege, I did the same. However I had to file down the end of the quick connect nipple to get it to fit with the hose from the camper. Following that, I discovered that the connection isn't sealing, as evidenced from a soapy water test.

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

The RVQII

RVQ II Grill Portable RV Grill $229 with FREE SHIPPING except HI, AK & Canada

Camco Olympian

Amazon.com: Camco 57305 Olympian 5500 Stainless Steel Portable Grill: Automotive

and Sidekick

Amazon.com: Outdoors Unlimited RVAD400 Black Finish Sidekick Grill: Automotive

are all grills made to utilize the RV's low pressure gas line that are downstream of the propane tanks regulator

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!!!
