Outdoor grill hookup questions

I picked up a 2013 Jayco X23B recently and it had a mounting bracket for a grill on the side and a quick connect for the gas underneath. I've been shopping around for something to put there and had a cousin that gave me a stove he used on an old popup camper they had...score! Anyways, it mounts right up but the hose is about 2" too short and it has a screw type connector where my camper has the quick connect. Is it possible for me to find like a 6" adapter? What are my options to make this work?


Here is the stove

Does the screw on connector fit one of those small propane bottles you get from Coleman or is it bigger than that? Kind of hard for me to tell what size that is.

I found some hoses on EBay that have the QD on one end, and a screw on type on the other, just not sure the exact size you are looking for. Also, does that hose that is attached to the stove come off or is it permanently attached? Your best bet is probably just to replace the hose on the stove. Fairly straight forward project.

The hose connection is up inside the stove...I'm sure it could be changed but I'll have to start taking stuff apart when I get home to see what would be needed. I was hoping I could just find a cheap 6" adapter hose and call life good...lol I'll have to check and see if it screws on the little green bottles, I'm not sure. I know it was hooked into the gas system of a popup camper previously.

Oh, just had my wife go check. The connector will screw into the little green coleman bottles. Just need to figure out what the size is and what they are called before ordering something.

On the camping world website they are selling "12' Quick Connect Propane Assembly Hose" Give that a look, It's longer than you want, and more expensive than ( I would want to pay), but it's a step in the right direction.. You can probably find something cheaper, CW has terrible prices on stuff like that. If you want to keep this as inexpensive as possible, replacing the hose is more likely a better solution. I love the research challenges so I poked around a bit, you'll definitely find something. I think Walmart even sells adapters on their site kind of like the one at camping world.

That connector on the stove is designed to receive high pressure propane, and then go through the stove's regulator. The connection built into the trailer is low pressure, as it's taken off the main gas line after the trailer's regulator.

It's very doable (I have three different stoves that I can run this way), but you need to figure out how to bypass the stoves regulator, or it won't work.

The stove is a Wedgewood, I'm trying to find out more about it to see if it is set up for high or low pressure.

If the regulator is on the hose from your Wedgewood stove just disconnect it and get a new hose with dual valve (for safety) which you can connect to your low side connector of the TT propane system. Local hardware store should have all the parts.

If it has a regulator it is inside the stove housing and I'll have to wait until I get home in a few days to dig that far.

If it is a high pressure stove and I do the conversion to low pressure, will the stove work as well or will the btu's be lower? Would I be better off just using the little green bottles for now and running a high pressure line later on instead of trying to make this do what I want?

To tell the truth is it worth to you all the hassle special when the regulator is build in your stove? Those brass parts are expensive. Sometimes it is better to buy a new stove which will fit on your low system. And it also depends on how much you camp out.......
