Gas line reccomendation anyone?

I have a 2014 Jay Flight 32rlds with a quick connect gas line in the rear of the camper. Anyone know what size adaptor I need or have a recommendation for a 10 to 12 foot gas line to plug into my Coleman gas stove. Thanks in advance.

First check the pressure required to run your gas stove. The quick disconnect is low pressure ( less than 11 water column).

Not sure what connectors your stove has. But here's the info for connecting a Coleman LXE grill. The gas stove may have similar fittings:

Here is the youtube video for how to make the coleman lxe connection to an rv low pressure quick connect:

And Here are some links for the parts needed:
Tejas smokers: they are familiar with this modification. When I talked to the rep on the phone, he asked if I had seen the youtube video, as he said several people have ordered these fittings to convert their coleman. parts 120ba (1/8 to 1/4 adapter) and x115b (1/4 elbow)

Amazon: quick connect male fitting

Amazon quick connect 10 foot hose: http://www.amazon.com/Camco-57282-Pr...t+propane+hose
And that should do it! Good luck.

Be very careful with this kind of modification of a grill or other appliance. It is important to ensure that propane is vented properly with no flame. The RV propane quick disconnects have ball valves that must be closed in order to be able to disconnect the hose. Other quick disconnects can inadvertently be left open when disconnected allowing gas to flow freely creating a potentially hazardous situation. For example the quick disconnect on the extension hose is a standard hardware store variety with no integral forced off manual ball valve. That hose is connected to the RV quick disconnect which is still connected and in the "on" position. As soon as you disconnect the extension hose from the grill propane will start flowing at a high rate until the RV valve is closed. Its ok just not idiot proof. Another option is to install an additional valve right before the grill disconnect to reduce the likelihood of such a mistake. Obviously unless you are using an RV quick disconnect it won't eliminate it but at least you have to look at a valve in either the "open" or closed position prior to disconnecting from the grill. The Amazon quick disconnect hose in the link above is an RV propane quick disconnect version and does provide that protection.

I found two Coleman grills in the dumpster in our RV park several years ago. I took them both apart, cleaned up the parts and made one good one.
To adapt from my regulated RV quick connect to the grill I just cut the grill regulator off of the remaining curved tube, roughed up the surface near the end, pushed on the rubber hose over the rough spots and double clamped it. Has been working fine for 3 seasons. I also purchased a new aluminum grill surface to lighten the whole thing.

Most propane dealers, RV dealers, and hardware stores should be able to sell you a hose with the ends you need. They can make up a hose of just about any length.
