Or maybe this would work well for you?

You could just stick with your small grill propane tanks and refill them off your 20lb or higher trailer propane tank using something like this:

I have the same hookup. I took the connector from the Coleman along with the hose that connects to the RV quick connect to Lowes and said make these go together. In about 5 minutes he had them connected together. It took 3 brass reducers to do the job, works great.

All this for 5 uses a season? Just buy a couple cases of the 2lb cylinders and be done with it. I can usually get 3-5 meals cooked on my grill using 1 throw away cylinder.

Naah.

You only need two of the little cylinders. You refill them from the propane bottles. Why do you need two? In case one runs out in the middle of cooking dinner. You can switch to the other and then fill/top off both after dinner.

It's forbidden to do this for others, but you can do it for yourself. Use this adapter.

Tips for using:

Maximize the amount of fuel transferred from the big bottle to the little bottle by:
  • Let the big bottle heat in the hot sun to raise its pressure
  • Put the little bottles in the freezer overnight to liquify the residual propane and lower its pressure
  • When you are ready to fill the cylinders, put the adapter on the big bottle. Turn the big bottle upside-down and stand it on its collar. Attach the little bottle, reach under and open the valve. Close valve after filling. Having the bottle upside-down causes the cylinder to fill with concentrated liquified propane, not the low-energy gas.

Does that really work? Anyone here try one? That might be a simple cheap solution and just use the 1 lb. tanks as suggested below.

It does work, but it's a PITA to pull the bottle off the trailer and mess with it.

I'd probably use the spare tank that I have for my gas grill at home to fill a few to take with me on trips. Thanks.

The fuller the source bottle, the fuller the cylinders will be, because the adapter runs until the pressure is equalized.

Just follow the tips I listed for best results. The hot/cold temperature stuff has a minor effect, but having the big bottle upside-down is essential.

This kit takes all the guesswork out of the job.
The extra male connector has a "female" thread that connects to the Coleman pipe. Just remove the regulator.

I just converted my Weber Q 2200. Works like a charm.

I believe the Coleman would use a "standard" regulator, so the fittings should be the same....the pipe that screws into the regulator is probably a 1/4" male thread pipe...(I'm guessing at the size.) But when you search, search for the same kind of kit to work with the Coleman.


On the Weber, the arrangement retains the flame control valve.

You only need one regulator to operate your grill or fire pit. Since the RV already has a regulator on it usually at the propane tank. If the grill has a regular you must remove it and buy and another hose without the regular. I know some grills and fire pits come with their flame setting built into the regulator, you will need to replace your grill and or forgot or use your grill and fire pit as if you were at home (not attached to the RV propane system).
BTW: the fire pit requires high pressure so it will never work off of your RV propane system, you will need to use your fire pit with a separate tank and it's own regulator.
I gort wick connects for all my propane device and it is a Paine to find all the right connections/adapters to make it work.
