Only quick connect fitting involved is the one on my camper I'm trying to hook this stove to.

Couldn't find a quick connect male that will work with the jayco female coupler anywhere local so I'm switching the quick connect out for a threaded valve for now...and found the fittings to switch from a 1# bottle to the ball valve I got. A little time tomorrow with some pipe dope and the outside grill should be functioning. ��

Ok, latest update in the outdoor grill saga. Got everything hooked up and the grill doesn't work. Here is the adapter I was able to make to get it to work...



No one had the right fitting to be able to screw into the stove so I was forced to reuse the hose with the fitting that screws onto the 1# bottles and no one had the quick connect for the trailer so I switched it out to a ball valve until I'm able to find the right quick connect.

There is very little has coming out of the ball valve without a hose hooked up to it...I'm asking this is normal since it's after the regulator. When I hook the stove up, it doesn't get enough gas to the burners to light them.

When I hook the stove up to a 1# bottle they are little jet engines. This is the fitting for the bottle...notice the little bottle hole in it for the gas...



I'm thinking that the low pressure from the trailer doesn't have enough oomph to get through here and to the burner. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if I drill the hole out bigger, shouldn't this fix my problem and make the stove work?

You are a braver man than me attempting to drill out your own propane hookups. That thing would be in the dumpster by now over here. Good luck, and don't blow up. I'd ditch the grill, put the now standard quick disconnect on the trailer and get a grill designed for this purpose. I was going to tear out the regulator in my Weber and use that if my camper didn't come with a grill, but that's the extent of my propane experimentation. Make sure your life insurance policy is current

Standard quick disconnect? I went to 5 different lp supply places and tried lots of different male fittings and none of them fit in my quick connect.

Standard male and female QD set -
https://www.amazon.com/Camco-59853-P...ow+feMale+Plug

Hose to connect grill to camper after installing new plug on grill - https://www.amazon.com/Camco-57282-P.../dp/B00CPYC9BC

If it's too problematic replacing / converting the hose and or connector on the grill itself (you may be able to find an adapter for this too on Amazon or elsewhere) chuck the grill

The "bottle" connection is a high pressure connection. I'm thinking that your regulator is built into the valve that turns your flame higher or lower. Drilling out the high pressure connection won't help you....

If it were me, I'd toss the grill and get one you CAN hookup.
I get that it is fun to play around and try to make things work, but drilling a larger hole? I think you are playing with disaster here. As others have said, make sure your life insurance and RV insurance are paid up...and call the fire department ahead of time to give them fair warning.

With the hoses and hookups and your time, you are probably spending nearly as much as it would cost to buy a decent new one.

If you really want to use this stove, take it to a dealer who knows gas connections and have them modify it for you...but again all this will cost you money.

I think you're on to something with that, I brought it up back in this post. Worth double checking.
