Low pressure gas

Using our blackstone griddles and coleman stoves have been a hassle with the little green bottles. I recently found this website that has everything needed to convert these to the low pressure system of your camper if you have one. I'll just paste from another forum.

Solution found
Found this website, they have kits/adapters for just about anything. Oderered the 12 foot hose with QD for coleman and Blackstone. The fittings are QD on each end. No worries now, with my luck the wife will decide to use electric now!

Just passing the info.

The two hose links didn't work for me.

For the 12' hose, use

for the 8'

You will not be able to run a Coleman cook stove on low pressure unless you modify it. The cook stoves have a regulator that connects to the disposable green bottles or a larger tank with a hose, but the proprietary regulator supplies propane at approximately 14-inches of water column. Low pressure systems are regulated down to 11-inches of water column. Coleman cook stoves have jets with tiny orifaces which will only provide very low flame on low pressure systems. In order to get them to work properly on low pressure, the oriface feeding the tube leading to the burner must be enlarged slightly, emphasis on slightly. I converted a stainless steel Brinkmann cook stove by enlarging the jets using the next sized drill bit in a pin vise. I had to cut the regulator off the connector assembly and attach a piece of propane hose using a hose clamp on one end and a hose bib/male LP fitting on the other. In doing so, I lost the ability to use the stove’s igniter, presumably due to lower pressure but I can light the burners with a butane BBQ lighter. The stove has the full range from low to high flame, and I have eliminated the use of disposable cylinders. But before doing this yourself, bear in mind that the modification is not reversible unless Coleman sells replacement jets (I don’t know). I do know a new regulator assembly can be purchased for about $15 on Amazon.

The parts mentioned replace the entire regulator on the camp stoves allowing them to use Low pressure side. The factory regulator won't be in use!



Maybe these will work.

These parts work with the Blackstone Griddle and the Coleman Roadtrip Grill. The regulators that come with both of these reduce propane to 11 inches of water column. These adaptors allow connection to a low pressure system which as previously stated, is 11 inches of water column. They WILL NOT work with a camp stove which needs more pressure to operate properly, typically 14 inches of water column. If you buy one of these to use with a Coleman Cook Stove, you will be wasting your money. You still need the proper pressure for the appliance in question to function properly.

Please note that this thread is entitled “low pressure gas.” And it would require a hose with an outflow fitting that is threaded the same as one of the green disposable cylinders, with an Acme fitting on the other end. It actually accomplished 2 things:
1) it cuts down on the empty 1 pounders going into landfills, and
2) it reduces the price of propane because the cylinders are far more expensive to get an equivalent amount of propane than filling the typical 20 pound tank used on most trailers.

Just a different take on this fuel supply discussion. I don't really care for the thought of having to tap into the trailer's gas piping to supply any accessories not actually physically affixed to the trailer itself. For my 2 burner Camp Chef stove I bring an extra lightweight composite 5 gal. Propane tank just for fueling the camp stove. It's lightweight, has more than enough gas to last me for almost a month running the stove 3 meals a day on one filling, and it is highly portable, meaning that I can set it up anywhere I want to, and not be limited by the length of some hose stretched from the trailer. We usually set up our camp stove in the Clam pop-up tent, which generally isn't withing the length of the hoses being discussed here.
I know that some people like the plug-in taps off the trailer supply, but to me, it is much easier to just take the tank, when empty, and get it filled without all the fuss of having to remove the tank cover, remove the tank, and then reverse all that to reinstall it again after filling. What a PITA way to do it in my thinking anyway.
YMMV

Thatís my thinking, too. Iím planning to swap the single 20# tank on the tongue of our Scamp for 2-11# tanks. One will be connected to the trailer and the other removed to fuel our camp kitchen. I have a tree that can supply a stove, lantern, and grill at the same time. We usually set up our camp kitchen away from the trailer.

I do have the low pressure quick release propane outlet on my trailer and I still don't see the right fittings to attach my coleman stove and coleman propane skillet.
One problem is the stove has a built in regulator, but on the skillet the regulator and control are on a plug in external brass fitting.
Right now I carry a 5 lb cylinder to power them, but would like to find the right fittings to run them off the trailer supply and leave the small tank at home.
The small amount of propane they'd use would not substantially affect my propane supply.
But I'm about at the point of deciding there's no good way to run them off a low pressure supply.

Yeah, I have one of those "trees" that hooks to the tank too. I have a propane lamp on the top outlet and I can run several other propane fueled appliances at once if I need to, not just the stove. Pretty handy item. Since we rarely stay anywhere without power, we just about never use the trailer's Propane stove or furnace, so I "downsized" both of my on-board Propane tanks too. I can't remember the last time I even opened a valve on one, but they're both full and ready if needed. I just relegated the two 5 gallon tanks to my back deck to use with my Weber barbecue or my smoker.

And you wonít find the right fittings to run the stove. Have you not read my previous posts. A Coleman stove runs lower than tank pressure but at a higher pressure than the low pressure connection.

Yeah. I've about concluded the low pressure fitting was a mistake.
