i have both the regulated portable tank hose and the 10' unregulated quick connect hose. the quick connect hose can fit into the quick disconnect fitting in the storage bay. however, i would reccomend getting a much longer hose as you use up alot of the hose length just dropping down and out of the bay. a 20' hose would be nice.

i do notice on my unit with the on-demand propane water heater, that i can notice the burners fluttering and a few times have cut out when the water heater was running. i had 3/4 tank full of propane when i noticed this. i only ran this set up once. i will try it again to see if it is indeed the on-demand water heater starving the propane flow to the camp chef.

but i always carry a portable tank just in case i need to setup the kitchen a little further away from the coach and the hose won't reach.

if you have a portable propane tank, you won't ever regret buying the camp chef!
I have had no luck finding a quick connect that will hook up to my XLR HFS 27 toy hauler any suggestions.

Received my camp chef burner and pizza oven and I love them both. Amazed at how quickly they heat up. Have not used the stove on a camping trip but looking forward to it.

The pizza oven sits on top of the 2 burner stove. In less than 5 minutes it reaches 500 degrees. Last night I made a batch of dough and now we have pizza whenever.

Happy 4th to all!!
You can have any length you want custom made at a "hose shop". And the price I was charged was little more than buying a fixed length off-the-shelf hose.

I got mine made up at HosePower in Mesa, AZ

Boowho??
