Coleman NXT grill

Does anyone know how or can u connect a coleman NXT portable grill to the outside quick connect propane hose that is on the side of my pup? The pup is a rockwood hw276. Think this was already discussed in another forum but can't find it.

Look on you tube. There are videos on doing the set up. The basic issue is that the Coleman is a high pressure set up with its own regulator and the quick connect is a low pressure set up.

Right. That is the problem. Apparently you cannot cook behind two regulators. It will not work. I have the same problem with my Weber Q. I just pull a tank off the trailer and use that with the adapter hose they sell.

Works great.

I do the same pull the second tank off and use a splitter and run my Coleman stove and road trip grill. That way I can cook away from the PUP

This video shows a guy just cut the hose at the grill fitting and clamp a hose with a regulator and connects to a LG propane tank. Watch "Coleman RoadTrip Grill LXE-J" on YouTube

You need to remove the grill regulator since the outside quick connect hose is already at low pressure from the regulator located at the tank on the front of the camper. You cannot have two regulators in line.

Check out this video. It explains how to take apart the Coleman gas connection to the grill and the parts needed to be able to connect it to your outside quick connect hose.



You will notice in the video that he needed about 5 adaptors and parts. I was able to do it with 2 parts, a 90 degree elbow and a quick connect fitting that I purchased on Amazon. With less parts, the elbow stays flush to the back of the grill for when I get around to making a mounting adapter to attach the grill to the bracket that mounts on the side of the camper.

Here are the parts I ordered from Amazon. I paid around $22 but it could be cheaper now.

Eaton Weatherhead 3400X4X2 Brass CA360 Fitting, 90 Degree Elbow, 1/4" NPT Female x 1/8" NPT Male

Camco 59903 Propane Quick-Connect Fitting - 1/4" NPT x Full Flow Male Plug

I highly recommend you use PTFE gas line pipe tape when connecting everything. I used 4mil, " wide tape.
