Thx...Dan

Thanks for the replies!!! since we are coming from tent camping, our trips we be longer and since all cooking was outside on a Coleman stove or onsite grill...thinking a gas grill that could fit in the storage area under the bed (19') or in the storage box will be the direction we go. So many decisions...the forum is so valuable as our first trip to ETI next fall ( or summer if we are lucky) we be to take delivery. Thanks again for all the help along the way....more questions are likely to follow...:-)

We set up a Colman Roadtrip Grill outside for most of our cooking. Make sure you have a propane quick disconnect specified for your trailer build. Then pick up one of these from E-Trailer to connect to your outdoor stove assuming it has the standard low pressure connector. 100476-72-Mbs | etrailer.com

That MB Sturgis hardware (tee, fittings, hoses) is all for high pressure propane (as it comes from the tank) - which is what a Coleman Roadtrip grill needs, unless it is modified.

This is not low pressure, as it comes from Escape's optional quick connect port, which is plumbed to the regulated propane supply. The low pressure propane supply won't properly run this type of grill (unless the grill is modified), and the quick-connect fittings shouldn't fit... but unfortunately this and other MB Sturgis high-pressure products appears to use the Model 250 connector type which is for low-pressure service and rated by other suppliers (and by MB Sturgis themselves) for only one-half of one pound per square inch.
I don't think I would buy anything from this company.
Edited based on MB Sturgis connector type.

Thanks so much for correcting my bad information! I had assumed because the fittings worked the hose was compatible. Truthfully I had not actually tested it yet. Back to the drawing board.
