Coleman Gladiator stove

While in Tennessee I tried my new Coleman stove bought on Amazon-

http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Compan...perflame+stove

it did not do well. The flame was hard to adjust, it was too high/hot and the food burned. I contacted coleman upon returning to home, then sent me a new one and told me to keep the old one. I tried it last last, the flame was adjustable from high to low. Comes with 2 griddles, I'm a happy camper now. Packed it up and stowed away in BlackJack.

Jim,
Is your new stove compatible with the propane quick connect on the trailer?

Not Jim, but I'll chime in. The Coleman Stove uses the propane cylinders, which are high pressure. The Propane quick connect on the trailer is low pressure, because the pressure is reduced at the tanks by the regulator. So no, not compatible. You could run such a stove directly from the trailer's cylinders, but you'd need to disconnect the tank from the trailer, and connect a high pressure hose and adapter. That's not 'quick connect'.

Or you could install what is essentially a T-valve to connect the Coleman to your big propane tanks...

Yep, that accomplishes the same thing. As long as the stove gets high pressure instead of low, you're good.

Some propane appliances can be modified to remove the regulator so they can run on low pressure. I haven't tried it yet, but I have seen posts on the forum of people who have done it with a Weber Q1000. The key is that the appliance needs to have the regulator separate from the valve.

Although the Gladiator has an unusual style of burner, if the propane control parts are like other typical lightweight portable camp stoves - including every Coleman - it cannot readily be converted to use low-pressure propane. See any of the several previous discussion of stoves and low-pressure operation for the details.

Coleman seems to have neither manuals nor parts for this series of stove on their websites (U.S. or Canada). Jim, does this stove have the usual external regulator/control of typical Coleman stoves?

No external regulator but it does mention "bulk hose hook up" in it's description.
