I find that my rig is now on the "other side" of being done (of course it seems like it's one of those things that's never really done) I spend time tweaking it (thus never really done). Never leave well enough alone. One thing that really bothered me was the conversion from bed to couch and back again to bed mode. There were a couple of stop blocks that had angles on them for the bed platform to ride over but the angles were too sharp. There were also some areas where there needed to be less free space alone the sides which was causing some misalignments issues. After making some revisions the whole unit seems to operate much more easily. Before I needed my wife on one side, me on the other to do the conversion. Now I can do it myself.

Thought I'd share the conversion process.

I had a good teacher! 8)
Thanks again for your help with that..... worked out well.

That will get me primed up for posting short videos for our upcoming travels out west.

That operates really good John.

That's something I have to nail, I won't have access from the side like you.
I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number.

Received my long awaited Partner Stove. Works great, lid closes nicely and I can say it's really a beautiful piece of equipment.... very nicely crafted.
Looking forward to putting it to use and cooking some nice gourmet meals :R

Beautiful and a perfect fit!

How did you position the gas container and gas line? I am having a similar setup but have not figured that out yet… because as the stove moves the gas line also has to be able to move with the stove.

I ordered my Partner with the gas inlet on the right side. When the stove is pushed in, there's a U-shaped line that hangs down. That line connects to a rubber propane line attached to the chassis frame.

You can kinda see it here at about 3:30:

The propane lines (one for the stove and one for the heater) run to the tank on the tongue box.

Yes.... burners light soon as torch is contacted to burner (before only half lit up) and the lid closes without binding. I had sent it back to Partner and had many discussions with Jaime (president if Partner). Great guy and was very helpful in making things "right". Good company and nice product.

I'm not sure I designed the hose to stove in the most efficient manner, but time will tell. Unlike Tony and the way he set his up (which I think is the more efficient way to do it) I have the inlet on the left side and will run the hose to the propane on the outside of the trailer. The downside is I'll need to disconnect all when I want to close the hatch. I did not have the room at the rear of the stove to have the inlet on the right side and accordion the hose when it was in the closed position. I'm looking into quick connect/disconnect fittings which may make things a little more efficient .... but I want to use it for a while and see how things work out.

And your TD is now officially complete, for now ;)

As far as plumbing the stove, my Flame King is plumbed out the back but there is room to put a 90 on there so I can take it out the left side.
My plan is to run the line diagonally, floor up to stove, then it is more of a leaning motion on the hose instead of a push/pull/kink/pinch, I may also add a bungee cord to hold up/retract the line if need be.
I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number.
