LP quick connect

I have the LP quick connect installed on my trailer for the bumper mount grill, but don't have the grill nor do I care to. My question is would this connection work to fuel a portable stove? Like the Walmart ones that just use the small screw-on bottles, but if I got the correct adapter and hose... Is the pressure going to be OK to run something like this?

Yes, because the propane is already regulated at the tanks. I have yet to go purchase the hose for my Coleman 2-burner gas grill so I've not looked into the type of connection for the stove end yet, but I believe they make those in various lengths to accommodate the quick-disconnect at one end and the bottle connection at the stove end.

If the portable grill has its own regulator where the bottle screws on and if the quick disconnect is down stream from your tank regulator, then it will not work on your quick disconnect, which already has the pressure reduced. Most likely all the gas lines running under your trailer are at reduced pressure.

Search the threads. Yes and no to answer your question.
The small bottles are high pressure. The connection on the trailer is low pressure. I have a stove that uses the small bottles the regulator is built into the control knobs of the stove. So this type of stove would not work. I have a coleman 2 burner stove as well which uses the small bottles as well. Now this stove still won't work unless you were to remove the regulator but then you would have to come up with an adapter to bring it into the stove.
With all that being said if the stove runs on the little bottles it is high pressure stove and high pressure is needed to supply the stove where the bottles plug in. You could maybe adapt it but you should know what your doing if you do.
If you find a lower pressure stove that would hang off the side of the camper let me know I haven't seen one yet

I also have a TT with a quick disconnect for low pressure propane, except mine is on the side by the door. What sort of thing was envisioned for this hookup?

My propane quick connect also has a shut-off ball valve built into the connection. Makes a very safe set-up.

Camp Chef makes several low pressure stoves that will work. They wouldn't attach to the camper, but you could make a small counter that could and sit the stove on it. We just use a small table.

I went with this as it can be used with or without legs.


These can be bought for less on Amazon, etc.

Take a look at the sticky "LP Quick Connect..." under Campfire Cooking by Bob Landry. Also look at some of the follow-ups for some additional ways to solve the problem.

This is a website www.flameengineering.com I used to get the hose and fittings to make my quick disconnect work on my TT. I retrofitted my Weber Q1000 as directed in the directions as noted in the sticky mentioned above.

Go to the parts and accessories section of the webpage and you'll find what you need
