ok. I looked it up. Will that hose connect both to the stove and to a 1 pound propane bottle. I dont want to lug a large 20 pound tank around.
Upon closer look, it appears neither end will hook up to my stove nor a 1 pound bottle :thumbdown:

As I said in my first post, that hose hooks a 20lb tank to your stove instead of using 1 lb bottles.

To just move the 1 lb tank away from the stove, you need this http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/390530314000?lpid=82

But as I said none will hook directly to the stove because of the regulator that must be between the tank and the stove.

I am a fair to decent plumber having been in industrial maintenance and having plumbed my home and a few trailers


HOWEVER

When standing in the LP section of Rural king or some other box store I, to, scratch my head.

If you have never stepped foot into a LP distributors show room go do it. Take your stove and tank and ask them to put them together. These guys will reach over to the wall and lay down 2 to 3 fittings and you will be adapted and probably for far cheaper than the box stores.

I might just do that. I'm not about to spend $50 on a hose that needs further modification to alter my $70 stove. For $150 I can get a new stove with a flex hose and can be use counter top or stand alone. I just want to use my $70 stove since I already have it. I refuse to spend money I dont have to build this trailer. Im not the government :thumbsup:

Why does that hose from eBay need modification? I guess I don't understand what you're trying to do.

Can you post a photo of where you want to insert the hose, or just pix of the connectors?

Pretty much anything to do with propane costs extra because of safety regulations regarding how the hoses are attached to the connectors. Be prepared.

I managed to rob my barbeque grill of the hose that goes to the side burner I never use. I pluged that hacked off hose end up (yes I checked for leaks) and cut the hard line and using my flaring tool, I flared the ends and used hose clamps to make a flex hose (and yes I checked that hose for leaks too). I hooked up 2 air compressors in a similar fasion so I figured it would work for a propane bottle. I just wish I would have put a 90 degree bend in the tubing before I cut it. But its an improvement
