Yes, connecting to larger tanks is common here. There are several companies that make various adapters. I know regulations and equipment varies wildly in different countries, here it is pretty easy. I can't give the why and how's off the top of my head but propane is very standardized at least for these type of applications. They are available at a lot of places, even WalMart..

here's a common tank to hose adapter. The male end is the same as our 1# propane bottles;

a 5' connector hose. I have a couple of 10' ones with our camper.

These are really handy for using a big tank. The base mounts to the the tank and it has 3 outlets, one on the top that you can connect a propane lantern directly to.

Here's a pic of our camp kitchen a few years ago, using the tree to fuel the stove, BBQ and a lantern on top from the single bottle seen below the table.

Does that help a little at least?

Hi Shaun. Thank You for the info. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: That Coleman on the right side of the pic is that also capable of having a hose connected?

Cap'n, yes it is. The regulator is on the small silver tube coming off the right side of the stove (viewed from the front), the hose is connected there. It's small, a little over an inch in diameter. No regulator needed at the tank which simlifies matters. Fairly standard on US propane stoves. Most have a shut off valve as part of the regulator. The small BBQ on the left uses a larger style regulator, also with it's own shut off.
