Using LP gas to fuel Coleman Stove

Hello, I just got off the phone with the top leading manufacturer of camping stoves and they said I could not add a designated LP gas line with proper fittings to fuel my camp stove outside using my AS's existing tanks and gas lines. They explained there is a pressure issue associated with this application. I just can't believe there isn't an adaptor available for this!!!! I need a professional/expert opinion. I do not enjoy using those throw away or non recycliable canisters. Please advise! Thank you

What I do is disconnect one tank and use a bulk tank adapter to connect the tank to the stove or bbq. I would like to see a more permanent installation.

I use one

When I was working on mt 976 I replaced the refrigerator with an electric only one. I bought a table top grill from Costco and a 10 foot hose with quick disconnect from Lowes. I use the LP line that was disconnect from the refrigerator and it works great. I also have a twin bunk model and put long hinges on the bunk top and can lift it up with lots of additional storage and the grill fits there nicely.

You do need a pressure reducer...or not...you will have greater pressure, bigger flame, more BTUs's w/out one, I have done this also...and it works fine.

But to answer your ?; yes you can buy the extension hose with a reducing valve on it...I used mine last night!

Look at changing out the burner not the gas line. Camp Chef offers ranges starting at about $100 that'll put a Coleman to shame. They fold up compactly, hold large, heavy pots and pans and work well in the wind. I've cooked for 60 on them and they're a chef's dream outdoor range.

I always carry a 20lb tank and use a hose to connect it to my coleman stove, propane grill or generator. The hose is a common item that I picked up in a hardware store. I see no reason why I couldn't use my trailer propane, except that the 20lb tank is much more convenient. I carry it in the back of my pickup; I also use a BigFoot base and secure the tank to the truck, just in case.
