Unhappy Gas pressure Low

I have a propane pressure issue that I just can't figure out.
I have "T"ed into my main gas line that runs to my stove, furance, fridge etc. with a new quick connect. The applicances inside the trailer are working very well with never any issues. From this "t" I have placed in 20 feet of flexible new gas line that goes into a older coleman stove, (two Burner), I have taken out of the line going into the coleman the regulator as I know that I would reduce the pressure from the twin regulated bottles in my fifth wheel too much. Just prior to the coleman I have place another "T" that runs to a small table top BBQ. I have placed in new quick connectors on all of the feeds.
I am getting so little pressure either of stoves, a small wind could put out the flames. I have checked for any blockages in the lines, correct functioning of the quick connects etc. I have even turn on the gas very slowly not to trip the safety regulator on the tanks.
Basicly I have straight through lines to both coleman and bbq, the only requlator I have is on the main tanks. I have also replaced the regs on the main tanks, I thought they may be sticking or weak.
I just don't know what I'm missing. Any body have any hints what I might try out.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, all the applicances in the trailer are working very well.

If I remember correctly the coleman stove uses a higher pressure regulator.
The regulator on the camper is set at a lower pressure than the stove requires.

your problem is using a high pressure stove, on a low pressure system.
you have to take the Coleman's regulator off.

only stove that can be used without mods, is the Camp Chef stoves. they work on low pressure.

Try putting the "T" before the regulator. As stated the trailer works on low pressure and the stove and BBQ both need high pressure.

I'm not very technical and can't offer any feedback but to the forums!

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

No regulators are left on the line to the bbq or the stove. I have removed them, knowing that they run on low pressure. I removed them due to the existing ones on the trailer. The "T" or the quick connects really do not have any restrictions either. Hence why I am so stumped!
