I understand the reasons why someone would want a high-pressure line, but the suggestion was not made clear that it must go between the tank and the factory regulator. That's the issue I was having with it. Most people reading this would think you could simply add a high-pressure fitting somewhere along the existing gas line on the trailer and that is incorrect. And I would be hesitant to cut into the factory tank harness. Would make more sense for those with dual tanks to just use one tank with a regulator for the camper and the other with its own unregulated line for anything requiring high pressure.

I have a similar 'challenge' ...I wanted to utilize the quick connect port on our 2106ds to connect Coleman or the Smoke Hollow stove that we have, great for tailgating, camping etc. So i did get adapter hoses for the Coleman (1" -20) disposable canister to to the quick connect and an adapter hose to go direct to the 20# propane tank.
The problem is that all Coleman stoves, as has been pointed out in other threads on this website, have a regulator. So they will only work on high pressure from either a small disposable can or the larger tank. Any effort to utilize the low pressure quick connect port is met with very low pressure and a very small flame (if any) in the stove. And all the Coleman fittings are proprietary and I have yet to find a simple on/off/adjustable valve (not with attached regulator) that would safely replace either stove's valve.
Camco has a valve designed for use on Olympian 5500 grills, would that be a safe alternative....at least for the Smoke Hollow? I think there was some discussion about this in yet other posts and they were not in the affirmative.
Suffice to say, use a 12' adapter hose direct to the propane tank and to the Coleman stove to replace the disposable tanks is the only alternative for the Coleman equipment.
So, we continue to look. Good luck.

I've been increasingly leaning towards wearing out the Coleman stove (which apparently doesn't take very long) and buying an outdoor stove that sells the ready made cable for the quick connect. Coleman isn't worth this much hassle.

Not sure if this is a solution or helpful but check out Harbor Freight Model 91899 "Propane Torch with 3 Burners". In the kit there is a 4' hi pressure hose (350 lbs working pressure) with Coleman Cylinder connector with integrated valve at one end and a 3/8" pipe thread at the other end, attached to the torch.


Looks like the torch end could connect to a quick disconnect fitting directly or w adapters.


With discount coupons and the upcoming Memorial Day Super Sale, the torch can be had for about $24, a whole bunch less that the component parts and pieces.

That sounds like it's worth looking into. Thanks.
