Propane fittings / adapters?

Postby spbiknut » Wed Jul 03, 2013 9:09 am

I'm no Hank Hill so I need help finding a fitting / adapter to connect my extension hose from my propane bottle to my Camp Chef oven / stove. See pictures below. I can't find a fitting that goes from the Mr. Propane extension hose to the camp chef regulator. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
-Troy

I think you've purchased the wrong thing.

It looks like you need a Mr. Heater F273701 instead. I can't find them listed on the Mr Heater site, so they may be out of production. You need a hose that has a fitting for a 20# tank at one end (left-hand thread POL or right-hand thread ACME) and a 1" fitting that replicates a 1# tank at the other.

Thanks for the input! I have to use this particular hose because it has fittings that would fit through the protective housing that runs front to back. There has to be an adapter out there somewhere for it.

Since you know the fittings at each end of the hose, just buy the individual ends from Mr. Heater. You won't find a single piece, because both ends need fittings, one from the hose to the appliance and the other from the hose to the tank.

Might be easier to remove Camp Chef property fittings and go with generics....

Does outlet fitting on regulator unscrew, if so what is thread size.... Are you keeping the Camp Chef regulator because it fits one pound canisters or you moving to a bulk tank? .... These is literally thousands of odd plumbing parts out there, you just have to find right combination... First thing it to determine diameters and thread pitch of existing parts you wish to reuse....

Coleman makes a 5ft adapter hose to allow connecting a 20lb cylinder where a 1lb disposable is used.

Question in need of an answer...

Is there a way to connect both a high pressure and a low pressure device to the same 20# cylinder at the same time? As in having a tee connection that mounts to the 20# cylinder with a hi and a low pressure regulator splitting off that. One a camp stove that usually has a 1# and the other something like a RV water heater/ fridge. Thanks.

I believe Western Enterprises make a fitting that has one male end for propane tank and two female ends that will take standard male connectors (for regulators). All connections are standard CGA 510 (POL)....

This may be the animal you are looking for....
