Free, and seems to work well. A smart relative suggested it to me, and it is cool.

Amazon price tracker, Amazon price history charts, price watches, and price drop alerts. | camelcamelcamel.com

Well yesterday the price on Amazon (from actual amazon, not a 3rd party) jumped back up to $95

but right now, it is back to $75, new (from actual amazon) but the wait is 1-2 months.

If you are not in a rush you can order it, and wait.

Note that actual amazon is not the top seller listing, it is to the right, under where it says OTHER SELLERS.

act fast. The price seems to be jumping around. and hasnt been this low for....... a long long time? I have been watching.

Wind screen

Do you use some type of wind block with this?

Haven't needed to, the burners are set down in the unit which kind of acts like a wind break, but I haven't tried cooking in a hurricane yet.

We use this stove on a fold out aluminum stand just outside the front door using just the quick connect hose ETI provided. We cook there or make coffee rather than smell up the inside. I sort of wish we had gotten the 3 burner version for even more heating space. That would allow use of 2 big pots side by side.

On a low simmer setting we needed a wind barrier even in a light breeze. We bought for $2 at Yokoyaya (a Japanese variety store similar to Daiso) an aluminum stove wind break that was very light and large that folded very flat. Worked very well! Great stove on our quick connect!

Although this windscreen is no longer available there are others like it. We bought a windscreen for the Ranger stove and use it as a grease shield behind the stove inside as well. Works great.

We will have the extra propane outlet on the 2017 21’ (we get it early 2017)

I will buy the propane Y that Greg A suggests.
Propane Quick Connect Y Adapter - RV Fitting - propanegear

I have on order the Camp Chef Ranger II Table Top Stove.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004LWIAPA/

I also own the big Camco Campfire In A Can (great for CA drought)
https://www.amazon.com/Camco-58035-C.../dp/B00G258GPI

I understand that Escape will provide us with ONE low pressure 12’ hose (?)

I’m trying to figure out what exactly I’ll need to order from Amazon to make all this work.

Will I need to buy TWO of these? (one for stove, one for Campfire in Can - ?)

Camco 59903 Propane Quick-Connect Fitting - 1/4" NPT x Full Flow Male Plug
https://www.amazon.com/Camco-59903-P.../dp/B007HG7WUQ

and should I buy ONE of these Camco 10’ Quick Connect hoses?
https://www.amazon.com/Camco-57282-P...dp/B00CPYC9BC/

and then is that all I need?

and…. bonus question - - if I want the Campfire in a can more than 10 or 12’ from trailer - can i safely put 2 quick connect hoses together to get 20’?

and…. do i need to remove any regulators anywhere?

thanks. :-)

John
Update - the Camco QC 10' hose https://www.amazon.com/Camco-57282-P...dp/B00CPYC9BC/ is about $20 right now... was $40 in August.

Remember you do get one QC hose supplied with the trailer, at least you used to, that is about 12 foot.

The hose is part of the $160.00 exterior propane quick connect option. It doesn't just come with the trailer.

Exactly! There would be no need for a propane hose without the quick connect fitting to plug into.
