so i picked up a new coleman roadtrip grill for this camping season. im sure quite a few of you either have one of these, or have seen them. they are designed to use the small 1 pound propane bottles. well, buying dozens of these little bottles is not an option for me. my two options are listed below. i would appreciate some input on my ideas........or if anyone has other ideas i would like to hear them. thanks.
1. buy a hose i can run from the large 40 lb tank on my camper. i dont need to get fancy and "T" it inline....i will just unhook the bottle from the RV line and hook my jumper hose up. i found this hose on coleman's website (see link below). i was something similar to this.....but i would be interested in something around 10 feet long. i dont imagine this is anything special, so i should be able to easily find a longer one. if it is something special, please advise me otherwise... Coleman - 5-ft (1.52-m) High-Pressure Propane Hose Adapter -
2. buy this adapter to fill the little bottles off of my 40 pound tank. http://cgi.ebay.com/Propane-Refill-A...item3a64c101b4
i know nothing about this adapter, but it seems like a good idea. just have to have a couple of the little bottles laying around to use. one big drawback for me would be that i dont think i could fill a bottle up without taking my large 40lb tank out of my camper. the compartment the 40 pounders sit in would not allow enough room to hook up the bottle. this isnt a BIG deal.....just a pain in the "you know what"
