Low-pressure outdoor stove

My new Escape has a low-pressure quick-connect for outdoor cooking, so I'm looking for a camp stove that will work with that. I tried removing the pressure regulator from my old Century camp stove, but it seems that not all camp stoves work at rv-system pressure.
I prefer cooking outdoors when the weather is nice, but I don't want to keep bringing a separate tank when I should be able to plug into the trailer system.
Some folks connect the Coleman Road Trip to the quick-connect, but the Road Trip is a grill. What we want is a stove, just a simple 2-burner.

I use the Camp Chef Ranger 2. Works great connected to my Bigfoot quick connect.

I have had the Camp Chef Ranger II for two years now, and just love it. Super easy to connect to low pressure. I just used a flared 90 to a pigtail with a AC male end.

This stove boils water fast, provides even heat across the bottom of the pan, and can simmer nicely at a very low flame, unlike any Coleman I have seen.

Thanks for the info, Mike and Jim. I just ordered one from Camp Chef.
Previously Camp Chef had told me by email that only their 14" series would work, but their 14" stoves are all bigger and heavier than the Ranger II.

Hey al,
Visit your local gas/fireplace store if available. I have a bbq that only accepts small green 1lbs bottles and I wanted to hook up to the rv system. They hooked me up with a T fitting (one end to propane tank, one end to regulator into trailer, last end to hose that is compatible with bbq)
Chances are that if you need to connect gas lines or water lines, you will find the right fitting for your application.

I think the Ranger series are relatively new. I came across them about 2 years ago and posted on the Escape Forum. At that point nobody had heard about them before. Since then we have cooked many a great deal on this stove outside

This is what we use. We also bought the griddle surface which makes great pancakes.

Hi fofo,
I already have my hose fitting dialed in, with a fitting from the local lp gas supplier. Note that the approach you are using runs a high-pressure line to the regulator on you camp stove. That has the advantage of supporting any camp stove you might have. The advantage of a quick-connect on the rv 11-water-column-inch system (low-pressure system) is that the hose that you have to stash is shorter and burns off more quickly when you knock down. Plus, my feeling is that the less high-pressure lines and connections and hoses you have the better, in terms of safety.

Absolutely, keep those high pressure lines as short as possible!
Hope your new stove works out for ya! Looks great
