Thumbs up Outdoor Stove Hookup

I was thinking of adding a portable stove outside of our 22fb. now i would use a aluminum table to sit the stove on and hook it up to the propane line that is located under the trailer with the quick disconnect end. it should be a simple thing to do and convert a canister style stove to the propane line. has anyone done the same?

All you need is a stove that works on low pressure and an extension hose. If the stove already has a regulator then it's not set up for low pressure. Not sure if removing the regulator from a canister stove is the way to go, it could be, but I have never tried it myself. I have a grill that came with a camper I no longer have and it was set up for the low pressure tap on the camper.

You will not find an extension hose at a camping store including camping world. But you can google propane extension hose for RV and find them there. You need one with a male and female quick connect.

I looked high and low for a hose that would hook up to the quick connection under our 5er on one end and then to our Weber Q on the other (I took out the tilt-out cook top that came with the trailer). As luck would have it, I did find one at a Camping World however, the service tech said that it would not work on my Weber cuz it had a regulator and that combined with the regulator on the 5er would make the propane gas pressure too low. So what I ended up doing was I got a 12' hose that hooks up directly to one of my 30 gallon propane tanks on one end and to the Weber on the other end. Therefore, the quick-connect will go un-used. But at least I don't have to use the expensive 1# smal tanks.

There is a thread here somewhere on doing what you want to do. Personally, I went to Lowes and purchased 2 ten foot propane extension hoses. I then purchased a quick connect and attached it to one end of the 20 foot extension. (Be aware though that there are different size quick connects. The first one I purchased from Camp Chef did not fit my TT quick connect. I did however find one at a local RV dealer that did.) I don't use mine on a grill or stove, but I use it on a turkey fryer base. We really enjoy fixing low country boils when camping, and thats what I use it for. It did take another trip to a local hardware store to get the fittings to connect to the turkey fryer. The quick connect is only on one end. Works great! For cooking, we use charcoal. I used the yellow teflon tape on all connections.

Here's how I did it and it's been working out great. It's a simple solution that's easy to swap from my Weber Q grill to the Camp Chef oven.
