I have the Spitfire 180 grill (with low pressure valve) which works very well with the low pressure ETI quick connect. Does anyone know of a portable burner which would also work with the low pressure ETI quick connect?

Just ordered this. Have a Camp Chef oven and it has an adapter to be able to easily use the trailer's quick connect. Called Camp Chef to verify same for the grill. $167 after July 4th discount from Overtons.com.

You could probably modify any Coleman stove to operate on low pressure. It would involve cutting the regulator off of the solid tube that attaches to the stove at one end and to the propane bottle at the other end. If the tube is the correct size, it could be threaded and a male QD fitting installed. If not, it could likely be brazed in by someone proficient at brazing. But, and here's the big question.....unless you use a stove a lot is it worth the bother. Unlike grills, camp stoves use relatively little propane. A small one pound disposable cylinder goes a long way when used exclusively with a stove, and there is no hose to trip over. If you use the stove extensively, then converting it might make more sense.

Does anyone else have this grill? We are looking at this grill and are wondering if this will fit in one of the compartments that you can access outside on the 5.0 TA?
Thank you!

Weber baby Q is a great little barbecue bought again . Camping just use little bottles . At home have my original Weber Q hooked up to a large tank . Also if a lot of people over have a larger barbecue .

Web site says it's 15"x28"x10". Just measured, it will not fit in the optional passenger side storage, it will however easily fit in the front storage.

I have looked extensively through gas fitting suppliers, and there is nothing that will thread on to the proprietary Coleman threads. The pipe size is not appropriate for threading with a common pipe thread either. One though I had was to see if it was malleable enough for a flared fitting. I do really like your idea of brazing on a regular sized fitting, and may just look into that.

I really like the quick connect, and would love to just make a tee at the end to have both my BBQ, and my Coleman stove, both hooked up sided by side. As it is now, I have had two hoses always hooked up, one to the low pressure, and one back to the tanks. I have been using the low pressure for 6 years now, and the high pressure for nearly 20, and have never had an issue with tripping over the hose. I do usually run them under my patio mat when possible.

That looks like the Camp Chef MVP. It has a separate regulator on the hose (or short pipe, using the hardware for a one-pound cylinder), and the regulator appears to the standard low-pressure type, so it makes sense that it can be run on a low-pressure supply from the trailer with a hose change.

Unfortunately, the connection of the propane to the grill doesn't look like anything standard. A hose would be needed that will fit the grill on one end and with a fitting for a low-pressure quick-connect on the other end. I don't see one in the accessories listing; there is a Q&A entry which says to combine the RV connection hose with part SPG25-18, and to look in Camp Chef for that part. That page doesn't exist, and their Hoses & Regulators page doesn't include that part.

The Hoses & Regulators page does have a Camp Oven & MVP Regulator (#SPG25-17). It looks like one could buy that, remove the regulator, and have the required pipe thread to special connection adapter to make a low pressure hose. Since it works for the Camp Oven, maybe it works for stoves? If the stove doesn't have a control on it, a separate control like that used for a Spitfire would be needed.

Is anyone - maybe Jim Bennett - up for ordering a SPG25-17 to see if it fits a Coleman stove?

Hi Carl- it is the MVP; will verify it works or not with same adapter their oven uses next week.

Thanks padlin for the dimensions!
Hard to buy a grill sight unseen when we don't have our trailer yet! Been struggling with which stove to buy. The Camp Chef MVP looks like a nice one but reading these posts about the ability to adapt it to low pressure makes it more difficult to make a decision. We also were looking at the Spitfire and tried to order it. Although we got a pretty good price the taxes were so high and then shipping..... And then we had no idea if it would store anywhere easily. We've been thinking about waiting until we pickup the trailer but then we won't have a grill the first few nights. Decisions...decisions!
