I just ordered Stay Flow Plus - Mr. Heater F273735 - Propane Hoses and Adapters - Camping World to connect my Coleman NXT 200 grill to my RV tanks. I will let you know how it works once I get it and try it out.

Check this one out at Amazon. Has a cap off for the BBQ line when not connected.


Robot Check


ETA: not sure why that says Robot Check, but the link seems to work. If at all concerned go to Amazon and look up Camco 59143 for the kit we use.


Looks similar to the stayflow above, but with the hand tightener grip, and $20 cheaper on Amazon.

Well the one I bought from camping world doesn't work. Don't know why. The hose screws into the regulator but I can't get any propane to flow. I know I'm getting propane to the end that connects to the bottle because when I unscrew it, it's under pressure and propane comes out. But for whatever reason the end that screws into the regulator won't engage. I can unscrew the hose and screw a 16oz propane bottle in and it works fine so I know it's not my grill.

Make sure you turn on the propane slowly both at the tank and at BBQ control. There are flow check valves both in the tank and regulator that could trigger if there is a sudden rush of propane.


Also, allow enough time for the propane to fill the hose and evacuate the air. Honestly I've never noticed this in the High Pressure system like this, but I know on the Low Pressure system in the trailer that it can take a couple of minutes of blowing air before my stove gets enough gas to actually light. It's long enough to be worrisome the first few times, especially as the air blows with enough pressure to keep blowing out the lighter.


Of course you could also have a legitimate shut off happening. Are you sure all connections on the new hose and fittings are tight and well made? Also, are you getting propane down the other branch and into the trailer? If you can light your indoor stove, that would point to the hose or fitting for the BBQ.

I went in and lit the stove inside the camper and it worked fine. Couldn't even hear air flowing from the grill. It was completely dead. I know everything was tight. I know propane was getting into the hose from the end that is closest to the bottle. For whatever reason it wouldn't pass the end of the hose that attaches to the grill.

So it is only the branch to the BBQ, and the BBQ itself seems fine as it will work with a 1lb TA tank, so the pressure valve at the regulator seems to be okay.

I can't check mine, it's in storage right now. The end of the hose that connects to the tank Y adapter has a male extension in the middle, that I think opens a pressure valve inside the Y adapter connection (can't confirm, but you can see this in the Amazon pictures). It is possible that they are not connecting properly, or that something is misassembled in the device. At this point I would probably return it as defective, or see if the vendor offers any kind of support.

Farnik,

You screwed the T that came in the kit directly into one of the propane tanks, correct? Or is it screwed in after the tt regulator? Without pics just want to verify it is before the regulator. I know crazy question, but better to start with the obvious....

Have you tried blowing air through only the hose with an air compressor by chance? Maybe a bad hose??? Or if the grill end is unhooked will gas flow then out the hose? Or do you have another propane unit you could try hooking up? Or borrow one from a neighbor to try? Maybe the hose and your grill's regulator don't like each other (not compatible???).

Good luck!
