Propane Fire Pit Connected to Camper?

Hey, everyone!

My 2004 Coleman Santa Fe has a propane hookup on the outside for the exterior stove. Would it be possible to run an extended line from that hookup and connect to a propane fire pit?

If not, it's no big deal.

Thanks in advance!

Is it a quick coupler or threaded connection. A quick coupler is low pressure and fire pit will not work. A threaded connection is height pressure and will work. If you have a quick coupler you would have to run the hose to the tank before the regulator

I'm pretty certain it's high pressure. I know it's threaded.

Then you are good to go
Great! Thanks!

Since I halved the weight of my battery by switching to LiFePo4, I figure I can probably put a second propane tank on the tongue and be able to better support other potential appliances.

Have a great night!

Unless you're removing the regulator the fire pit came with from the equation (e.g. it's on a hose, and you're using a different hose), this isn't going to work.

I was going to futz with getting our portable grill working via the low pressure stove connector. After pricing out parts and how much of a fuss it was going to be (I would have wanted an exterior stove AND the grill hooked up to a single connector), I decided the far easiest and cheapest solution was to just put a Y-adapter right off the propane tank (high pressure). Then I just hook the grill (normally designed to take a 1 lb cylinder) with a standard hose.

You tee off the tank .......before the regulator .......... the fire pit has its own regulator. Just to add. stoves with their own regulator seen to work also.

I did this out of an old back yard propane fire pit. I have a regulator on the tank, so I didn't need one at the pit. I have links in that thread for the long propane hose with quick connect.
