Self Install: Front & Rear Propane Quick Connects


Recommended Posts

I tried searching to no avail. I only found one topic on this but not much detail so I felt I should ask:

Is it possible to self install the front + rear propane quick connects for outdoor cooking? If so, could I be pointed in the right direction in terms of a part / tool I would need to do this?

 

Thanks!

I pick up my LE2 in May. I decided against the propane quick disconnects because all of my 20 year old stoves, cookers, fryers, etc have their own pressure regulators. My understanding is that they will not work unless connected to a high pressure source (can't have two regulators in series...it will lower the pressure too much). The LE2 has a regulator at the tanks so all the propane lines into/underneath are low pressure.

So, what I have planned is to install a propane "Y" connector coming off one of the 30 lb tanks. One of the y connectors will go to the LE2 regulator to fuel the LE2 as normal. The other Y connector will connect to a detachable high pressure propane hose that will run to my stoves/etc.

When disconnecting, I will need to turn off the tank and burn the hose length of propane....other wise the propane will escape into the air.

Below is my preliminary list of components needed to convert a coleman stove with the high pressure source. No special tools needed.

Steve, Your plan to add another regulator is feasible, but it seems clumsy to me. 

I have three propane items that each came with their own regulators: A Camp Chef stove, a Weber Q1000 grill, and an Outback Firebowl firepit. For each I was able to replace the connecting hose with a regulator with a hose with a propane quick connect. For the stove I used an 8 foot hose (currently $61; I paid $26), and for the firepit I used a 4 foot hose

Converting the Weber grill was more complicated, and covered in this post

The quick connects are really convenient, and it might be worthwhile to see if you can make them work.

Here is the set up I use instead of the propane quick connect. Simple easy to install . With a 20ft hose reaches just about anywhere. Works with all appliances and only cost about $35.00 minus the hose.

Clumsy ? 

Let me explain a different way.......

My old suitcase Coleman stoves are white gas only. To convert them to propane the Stansport propane converter is required.

Once converted, the high pressure hose runs from the stove to the propane tank.

The connection to the tank is to the "Y" connector....similar to what I see in Landrover's pic.

One three point connector and one hose to the stove or any other appliance that has it's own regulator.

Another good setup. The only problem with this is you have to disconnect and reconnect the tee to the propane tank every time. Unless you have a separate propane tank.

Could you tell me where to find the parts or the whole tee?  Thanks Foy
