I emailed Coleman about mantles and got a useless response. So, does anyone else have one? I'm trying to figure out what kind of fitting it needs and what kind of mantle. Coleman gave me a mantle number but said nothing about the seal it says needs replacing when the mantle is replaced.

Bobbie, is it anything like the Humphrey Gas Light?? We have a manual in the Document Center:
Electrical and Interior Gas Lights

Hi Bobbie,

My Campster had a propane light, but I never used it for the reason you mentioned, no mantle. So, I cut the line and capped it just past the stove. Then had a friend put up a 12 volt light which which cost about 12 bucks (from local auto store). I had it connected to my battery. Much easier. Besides, I don't really care for propane.... makes me nervous. Didn't want anything flammable by the bed. But, others have told me a propane light works great.

I have 12V lights but at the moment no battery. Do you still have your light? Does it have the thing that screws into the socket?

Cool, thanks, Kim. By the way, I should have my Campster home to Fresno in about two weeks. I just finished putting carpet in, painting the interior, and installing the microwave (I took out the two drawers under the icebox to make room for it.)

Mine uses a Coleman #1111

If you take off the sheet metal cover on the side there is info in there.

Cheers
Don

It says that, but does it need a burner nose? Something that screws into the opening? Or is that included in the mantle?

Don sent me photos of his, I sent them to Gas-Lights and they gave me the part numbers, and I ordered a burner nose and some seals and mantles. I tried out the lamp this weekend-well, Friday night- and it works great. It does throw a bit of heat so I won't want to use it in the summer, but its a nice light.

For future reference, here is what I got:

pau-L12-11A Paulin #9T TIE-ON/CLIP-ON Burner Nose (L12-11A)
pau-L24-15 Paulin Burner Nose Gasket 6-Pack (L24-15)
pau-L13-8-5 Paulin 5-Pack Clip-On Style Flexible Mantles (L13-8)

I think the Coleman mantles would also have worked.

Here's a picture: look, Gina, the mantle survived the trip home!

We had a propane light in one of our old campers. I liked the light and extra warmth, but didn't like the smell and the noise. And we went through a LOT of mantles, since they usually were shaken to bits every time we moved the rig. (But, looking back, I think I kinda miss that changing of the mantle ritual...)
