    Hook up exterior propane stove direct to tank?

    I'll say no, not with a stove. Buddy heaters have a maze of small tubing internally. It only takes a small amount of plastizers to leach out of the propane hose to clog. Buddy suggest a filter when using unregulated propane from the container to the heater or to use their special hose. Years...

    When coleman/fleetwood stopped using a coleman stove on high end models for outside they changed from 15 to 16 psi regulator for the outside connection and used unregulated stoves (relying on the 16 psi high pressure regulator at the 20 lb container). You can use one these unregulated stoves if...

    Propane system

    you inside appliances should be provided regulated low pressure, 11" water column or ~.4 psi. These days that is via a 2 stage RV regulator. Back then it was a single low pressure regulator (not to code now). Code would require a 2 stage that has a 10 psi as the first stage. Your out side stove...

The 8700 white wire (on the DC side) goes to the old white wire Whatever 8700 wire replaced the blue, that circuit needs...

    Fleetwood Yosemite stuck open

    I'd look for the hydraulic pump and find a relief valve to open. There could be a pull cable that is inop. There could be a solenoid that is not operating ... But gravity lowers the roof once the bypass is opened by various methods. Something holding the roof up would also prevent it from...
