It can also run a small camp stove with an adapter...
Everything was purchased at True Value hardware store........

Remember when working with gas fittings there are pipe threads which need dope or teflon tape on the threads and there are compression fittings that use farrows and flare fittings that don't use anything on the threads. After tightening everything up pressurize the lines and put a sudsy solution of dish detergent and water (50/50) on them with a brush and check for bubbles (leaks).

Tank pressure can be very high (150psi) so there should be a regulator at the tank and then the fuel lines run at very low pressure 13 inch water column about 1/2 psi. Some appliances have a regulator (appliance regulator) attached to the appliance to protect from over pressurization at the appliance if the tank regulator fails.

Hi,

Don, since you said your stove originally uses the 1# bottles, one of the hose adapters here oughta take care of things for you. Still might have to make your own tee: https://www.amazon.com/coleman-propane- ... ve+adapter

Now for a question: is anybody considering using an originally liquid fueled (Coleman fuel) model and want to run it on your big propane bottle?
If so, you'll need an adapter with integral generator like the Stansport on that same Amazon page. That Stansport model looks a lot like what I have, and you'll need to buy the hose, too. Also, if working with a liquid fueled Coleman stove, there are at least two sizes of generators, so be sure any adapter you purchase lists your model.

I ran a two burner Coleman stove off a 20# tank for a long time, melting lead to cast bullets, until I couldn't get the tank refilled (expired inspection date and old style fittings--nobody would certify it any more) and I'd have to buy a new tank plus a new hose. So I finally broke down and bought a proper electric melting pot. I never even stuck an external regulator in line (I dunno if the adapter had an internal one or not.) I don't know what pressures the 20# bottles normally run, but those liquid fueled Coleman stoves run on 30-35psi when pumped up "tight" and I never had a problem.

That's what Blue Rhino (or whatever your local propane swap company is) take your bad tank in and trade for one of their refills. Yes, I know they don't fill them completely, but for once every few years to get an updated tank I'll used them. I just swapped out two that had expired for brand new 2019 stamped tanks.

I have one, and it's great.
