External Propane Connection

Tried to use the the quick connect adapter for the RV tank to use my propane cook stove, but could not get it to feed the stove. Looked under the rig and it seemed pretty straight forward. Did I miss something?

on mine both the outdoor grille and the quick connect on camper have a valve you have to turn inline with the connector and if the connector isn't properly seated they wont open

The pressure to the outside connection is already regulated down to 11 inches water column so if you have a regulator on your cook stove it won't give you enough gas to operate it. You would need to remove the regulator on the cook stove to use the outside connection. Depending in the make/model there may be a kit available to do that. Try google for it as there are several places that have the kits/parts you may need.

What he said. I use it with my CampChef two burner stove with no issues.

An aside from this: You can use an external propane tank and regulator connected backwards through the quick-disconnect as an extend-stay or emergent propane solution should you run out.

I went to a local propane shop to ask for an adapter to make a hose to connect a tabletop grill to the quick connect on my TT after removing the regulator. He went off on me of how bad of an idea that is and he hopes I would be criminally charged after burning all of the campers down. Needless to say, I didn't buy anything there. Still using 1lb propane bottles for my grill.

I don't think your local propane shop technician understood what you were doing. i would suggest going elsewhere or building an adapter cable yourself from online resources.

Huh? Maybe he doesn't understand that the pressure from the RV is already down regulated. Those were harsh words he used. He needs to find employment elsewhere it sounds like.

Same problem with mine. Also had a "shock" when I attempted to connect the hose to the nipple. Ended up using a propane tank from that point on!

I adapted a Brinkman gill (from Home Depot) and a 2 burner stovetop (from Amazon) and have not had any problems with either one. I found the hoses and fittings on Amazon and found one ready made hose at Tractor Plus. We went with the Brinkman grill because it has 2 independent burners.

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.
