LP Quick Connect to Coleman Stove

I know this question comes up in multiple threads here and on other Internet forums, and it seems the most frequent answer is to build your own. But does ANYONE make a simple adapter or hose that will allow us to hook up the RV's built-in LP quick connect (for the external grill) to a Coleman portable gas stove with its proprietary fitting? It's already been through the TT's regulator, so it *should* be able to connect directly to the Coleman stove without pressure issues, shouldn't it?

Thanks!

Roger

I believe the answer to your question is no.
At least that was my experience with the Coleman LXE grill. I don't know if your gas stove has the same fittings.
Making my LXE connection was very easy, order 3 parts off the internet.
Order a quick connect hose from Amazon.
Buy some gas teflon tape. Really it is about a 15 minute job once you get the parts.
I won't post the links because it seems you've already viewed them.

Thanks! I keep hoping there's an actual ready-made adapter. Don't really mind making it myself if I have to, just wanted to keep it simple if possible.

Part of the problem is exactly that the gas has already gone through the TT regulator. Coleman stoves expect unregulated (high pressure) supply, the regulated (low pressure) supply may be too low when it hits the Coleman to light or stay lit. There are some people here who have had good results with the regulated supply, but YMMV. That's probably why you can't find a specific hose for this. I imagine no gas fitter or commercial company would mix a QC (LP) fitting with a 1lb TA (HP) fitting on the same hose.

We run our Coleman RoadTrip direct from a T off at the tank, and will likely do the same with our new Gladiator stove.

That's one approach, but I would like to use the outside quick connect that's factory-installed on my 23RLSW without adding an extra hose and hardware to the tanks.

I see people say what you're suggesting, but I believe you're talking about connecting to the Coleman regulator. Everything I read says there's no need for that, you can go from the TT's quick connect - which has already been through the TT's regulator - directly into the Coleman stove. You just need the hardware to match up.

The main problem with the connection is the design of the tube with that extra insert. The only way I could get the flow right was with an extension. It's very easy to do and most of the parts can be bought in a hardware store less the quick connect and hose.

Agree that You tube is a good resource to see a very ideas.

Assuming your talking about the good 'ol two burner Coleman propane camp stove... The answer is NO. It cannot be tied into the gas lines on an RV.

I experimented with this last year. I had the bright idea to take the regulator off the connector tube and weld on a 1/4" male fitting in its place. I connected that to a hose and then to the manifold under my TT, beneath the fridge (no QD fittings.) When I lit the burner, the flame was so small that I could not see it at dusk - only feel it. Only then did I read that huge sticker on the lid of the stove, the one that says it runs on 20PSI - DOH!

So, what happened?- The regulator on the RV which attaches to your Propane tank reduces the pressure to 11"W.C. (or about .4 PSI.) This is the pressure that is required by all the appliances in the R.V. It cannot support the demand of the Coleman stove. The only appliances that can be "modified" to accept the QD fitting on an RV are ones which utilize the same pressure. Typically, this means an appliance which has the regulator that screws onto your propane tank.

If the answer were YES, I would still suggest you go have one built. If there is a Propane company in your area, you would most likely be happier with a custom made hose.

I had a 15' hose made locally. If I could do it over, I would have made it longer...

The last LP gas pigtail that failed, I took to a different company, it was a hose manufacturer. I paid $4 for a much higher quality hose than original equipment or I could have purchased online.

I don't know I would drive across the state for one, but I would drive an hour to do it all over again.

Sorry, should have been more clear. Talking about the Coleman Roadtrip LXE Grill, as in this picture:
