Portable Gas Cooker

With my Rockwood Roo, I received a portable gas cooker to attach to an outside gas connection line, on the wall under the awning. When I attach it, to do outside cooking, it has such low gas flow, that I cannot effectively use it to cook. Is there something I am not doing, or doing wrong, to make this brand new cooker work properly?

Look to see if your new cooker has a gas regulator attached. This will be where the gas connection would be. If you see a regulator, then you will have to remove it and plumb it correctly to connect to your supply line. Many aftermarket cookers, grills, etc. are set up with a regulator, so you can use the high pressure canisters. Your rig already has that regulator somewhere near your propane tanks.
One more possibility, your new cooker is prepped for natural gas, and not propane. If set for natural gas, then you need to get the different orifice that will allow you to run it off propane. No matter what you do, when you are done, double check any changes you do for leaks!!!

Check the regulator on the tank, is it adjustable?

Thanks for your suggestions--seems like it was related to the connection between the gas line on the camper to the stove unit.
