I think the type of burner that he has uses the one pound LP bottles that screw into to the stove shut off valve. This is a hi pressure system and runs right off the bottles with no regulator. I would go to your local LP distributor to buy right parts to convert it to a low pressure 11" system.

Hope This Helps Tim

Wisest piece of advice

About 2 minutes with a technician and you would have the knowledge you need. If your orifices need resizing they have the charts and orifice drills to do the job right.
X2! This is the wisest piece of advice you could possibly get. You are dealing with flammable gasses and pressure. Let those who are professionals in that business give you the benefit of their expertise! Whatever the cost is pales to insignificance to what a fire disaster could mean to you and your family!

The orifices are tiny, smaller than a pin. There is no regulator and it was previously used on an RV with dual regulator setup and yes, propane.
I'll look at the grill (also no regulator) to see what size orifice it has, but it's probably wise to find a propane dealer who will make recommendations.
Thanks all.

I have the same stove in the picture. Yes, it has a connection that could be connected to one of the one pound bottles, but it does not have a regulator so I do not think you could use it that way safely. My stove requires 16 PSI.

That's the one, it has the same label. Only the connector on the hose is not one that fits the one pound bottles and I've already changed that out for the compatible disconnect for my camper. At any rate, I'll be headed to a propane dealer for advice.

Normally a quick disconnect is a low pressure fitting and that stove will not run on low pressure, (which is what your camper uses). I could not find a regulator that was 16 PSI so I got one that was adjustable up to 30 PSI. So, I just set it about half and it works okay. Like I say, I have two regulators, (which is common if you are using anything requiring high pressure). The high pressure is the first one and has a Tee. I connect the outdoor store at the tee. The other side connects to the low pressure regulator.

It could be that's what I'll wind up doing, I just had the thought that by changing the orifice for a low pressure stove might be the way to go if that's a possibility.

Low pressure will not be enough to power that stove. You need the full 16 PSI. That is why that stove is so good and has way more heat than one of the indoor stoves. Also, there is much more adjustment to the flame.

A propane tech can get the office size and tell you the BTUs and than convert it to 11" wc with no problem . It's done all the time in the propane industry.
