Outside LP Stove hook up
 
I would like to hook my Coleman LP stove to my outside LP connection on my Jayco X18D. Is there a special female quick disconnect for the LP male quick disconnect? Any suggestion on the best way would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry about the mix up. I meant to say, "is there a special male connector or the female quick disconnect?".

Not completely familiar with your Jayco model but most RV's regulate pressure at bottles to low pressure. If the Coleman stove has a regulator on it you would need to convert into a low pressure system like your camper uses, not high pressure off a single bottle or throw away bottle. I think it is as simple as unscrewing the regulator and using some fittings to convert it to low pressure use but I personally haven't done this although I want to convert my Weber Grill to RV propane use!

I assume it's a Coleman LXE, or similar stove, that uses the green disposable 1 lb gas bottles? Several previous threads here on JOF have covered this, and it's apparently quite do-able if you're at all handy. But now for the first time I see an actual commercial product that makes it possible. Check this YouTube video:

You apparently can order the complete Torjik kit here:

Coleman® Roadtrip® RV Quick-Connect Conversion Kit - propanegear

The video only just showed up a few DAYS ago. Looks to me like a pretty cool product, and it's a real time saver compared with the totally DIY process that we've had to go through up til now.

Good luck!

That's what I was looking for

Word of warning, which allegedly may come from personal experience:

Check thoroughly for leaks with a soap water solution before lighting up the stove.

I may have had a fitting that cracked during tightening that may not have been discovered until half the outside of the grill was engulfed in flames. Luckily, the ball valves built into the trailers disconnect fitting cut the gas flow when turned, saving the day, and the grill.

The cracked fitting had a porosity issue, which caused the crack to develop.
