Adding a camp stove to my LP gas regulator

Hello all. I'm thinking I'd like to be able to connect a campsite stove to my LP tank on my scamp 13. Seems like it might be convenient to cook out side on occasion. Trying to find a regulator that has connections for two appliances.

Anyone done this or know of a regulator like this.

Escape trailers have a "T" fitting in the line coming from the regulator to the trailer appliances, routed out under the passenger side of the trailer. That's terminated with a quick disconnect valve, shown in the pic next to the steps.

You will have to take off any existing regulator on your stove as two in series will not work.

Does anyone know if there's an adapter or a way to circumvent the regulator on a Colmane grill so that you can use the Escape propane connection?

Send a message via Yahoo to Darwin Maring
Go to Tractor Supply or Northern Tools and get a T adapter and hose.

You just unscrew the regulator and add a hose to plug into the disconnect on the trailer. If you need any fittings to make it work you can buy them at both Lowes or Home Depot.

We use a Coleman Roadtrip grill, and connect it to either a 20 or 11 lb tank using an adapter hose. I've found that some of those adapter hoses are not compatible with the Coleman regulator. First thought it was the regulator, but bought a new hose from Walmart and now it works. Had the same problem with an identical grill of my daughters, new hose solved the problem. Someone else had the same problem, and I may have read it here. I had made up a T fitting with a gas valve to tap in to the single tank on another camper but no longer use it as we wanted the grill farther away from the trailer. Now use a short hose connected to the tank which sets on the ground. Note that a tank setting on bare ground will eventually rust and pit underneath, making it unsafe to use and it won't pass inspection.

Prior to the regulator

We do most of our cooking outside. Our RV place has an adapter that splits the unregulated output at the bottle, one side of which can then be connected to our Coleman stove which has its own regulator. Seems pretty simple and also allows the flexibility of running the stove on another, smaller tank.

Won't a propane "tree" do that same thing? Looked at them but now sure if it's something I'd have to attach each time. Apparently they will allow several connections?

JD,
We also prefer cooking outside. Rather than running a hose from the scamp's tank (our preferred cooking spot isn't always close) we carry a small one gallon propane tank that is light and easy to move to the cooking area. It readily hooks up to a coleman stove or small propane grill. It can be filled at any location that fills the 20 lb tanks. Here is a photo showing it mounted on the scamp hitch adjacent to the battery and behind the main tank. Easy on/off with two turnbuckles.

Not what you asked I know, but perhaps a useful alternative.
