I have read quite a few threads about attaching propane
hoses to the trailer tank to feed camp stoves and grills. I believe that I understand most of what is needed but I do have a few questions.
We do most of our cooking outside of the trailer. We set up a table next to the trailer for the camp stove. For years we have taken the 20 lb propane
tank off of the trailer and set it next to the stove. A pole is attached to the tank with a POL left hand thread and a lantern is screwed to the top with a 1"x20 thread typical of the disposable 1 lb tanks. The pole also has two 1"x20 male connections for attaching the camp stove. These must be high pressure connections because the camp stove has a regulator.
It would be much more convenient to leave the tank on the trailer and run a hose to the pole (which I will mount to the table). Also it would be really nice to have quick disconnect fittings. I see a Sturgis tank adapter that attaches to the tank with ACME threads, has a high pressure quick disconnect (described to use for refilling the tank) and has the ACME attachment for the trailer regulator. Can the quick disconnect be used to feed the camp stove?
In my research on this forum, it was mentioned that there are different quick disconnect fittings for high pressure and low pressure. The QD fitting on the above mentioned Sturgis tank adapter must be high pressure but I do not see any hoses or component part high pressure QD. Where can one purchase the components?
On the camp stove side, is there an adapter from male QD to female 1"x20, to screw onto the male 1"x20 outlets on the pole?
Sorry for the long description but I do not know any other way of learning but asking long detailed questions.
