Don't know about a stove but Amazon.com has a Camco Stainless Steel Grill that will work with your low pressure hose/quick connect. It is the Camco 57305 Olympian 5500 SS portable grill ($185.25). If you are interested in a smaller one, you could try the Camco 51845 SS Portable Grill that comes with a storage bag for $125.47. (with that one you would need an adaptor, Camco Model 58279 LPG conversion kit which is available from Defender Marine for $43.99 + shipping).

Carrying the small propane bottles is safe until it isn't. Not sure how to interpret that one but I do carry a couple to operate the small Coleman camp stove I carry along. They are pretty durable and I've carried one or two around for years. They are readily replaceable so you don't need to carry any more than that. Throw in a torch head for them and you have a charcoal or campfire starter too.

Thanks for the Camco suggestion. They have some other models too, that are low pressure. Nice looking units. They're all grills, if anyone is looking for a grill.

Adam, you're a Navy Seal. Awesome! When you carry your propane bottles, do you take any precautions? I thought if I wrapped them in an old towel so that they won't bang around on each other or against anything else, that would make it safer. Am I kidding myself? What should I be worried about in regards to making the 6:00 news? How do I stay as safe as possible with, what I view as explosives in the back of the RV?!

I just carry separate 20# bottle with us for use with the BBQ - a lot cheaper per pound than using the throwaways.

Co uld also come in handy if we ever totally ran out of gas with the trailer tanks, although that has never happened . yet!

Incidentally, you can buy an adapter to refill the small 1# bottles from a larger tank - I think I have seen them at Harbor Freight and other places. I don't know though how well they work - or even if it is legal even if they do work well!

Roger, I'm so sorry. After I posted that, I realized my mistake. I'm very sorry.

Just curious since the AI has a two burner stove, why the need for another outside?

Great question. I wish I was willing to do just that, but, I don't really want the mess and definitely don't want the smells inside. I'm just sensitive to smells and would have a hard time sleeping in there after cooking in there. Also, I prefer to be outside as much as possible so that I don't feel cooped up all evening.

I do love that there is a stove inside, for when we might want or need to use it. But, I'd much prefer to be cooking outside.

Thanks. And since the Interstate is so small, I feel like I'd more or less be cooking in my bed!!

Right now we're leaning towards keeping the new Coleman and carrying 2 of the small disposable propane bottles with us. Although, as you can see, I am concerned about the safety of that!

I recently purchased a Weber Go Anywhere gas BBQ with a Weber Q Adapter Hose thinking this would be sufficient to connect the grill to the AS gas hose. Has anyone done this and know if this set up will work? Or will I still have to contend with a pressure issue?

If I end up going that route, I'm think of buying a two-bottle wine tote to carry propane bottles in.

That's me all over. Cooking inside is for breakfast and for rainy days when it's too wet to grill outdoors. Especially in summer, cooking indoors just adds more heat that makes the AC work harder.

Carrying propane always a problem, absolute safety doubtful.
Minimise explosion by storing in vented locker, no open flames near locker.
I have experienced leaking of a connected bottle, but remember a post to boating forum of small green bottles leaking even when disconnected.
I always disconnect from grill and wait to store in locker until next day and use my nose to determine if it is a problem. Soap bubbles would be better but since it is a long time between uses I don't want to rust the threads.

I'm worried that Airstream used soft copper in plumbing the onboard propane system. Soft copper and vibration don't work together well.
