    We just purchased a 2007 Fleetwood Westlake. It has a propane quick connect on the side. Are the propane quick connects all standardized or are there different types? If there are, how do I know which type my PUP has?

    They are different between manufacturers.

    Yup, different. Even if they will fit in the quick disconnect fitting, the internal parts need to match such that it opens the internal spring loaded valve. There are likely numbers on the quick disconnect parts, they need to match. I STILL have the one I tried, but wouldn't allow gas to flow.

    Also to note that on a fleetwood the outside port is high pressure.

    not '05-'07, not all series/years, ...

    there are some fleetwoods with an outside reg high pressure threaded connection, they would not be quick connects.

    check the parts books https://colemanpopupparts.com/pages/parts-books

    I thonk the screw type disconnects on the outsode of the colman are high pressure. The quick disconnects are low pressure.

    I think it was around 2003 when they standardized. My 99 has the older one which has a larger internal diameter opening but externally they are the same. I adapted mine with a plastic sleeve from a pen so it will activate the newer connector.
