    We have a 1997 Rockwood. The original stove works fine. We are wanting to use a "Coleman" stove as a backup. I have the correct hose for the stove. A quick connect. There is not enough pressure to keep the "Coleman" stove lit. If the original stove works, am I looking at a possible pressure issue or clogged line? There is a hookup outside and inside and both do not have enough pressure to keep it lit. There is a regulator at the tank. Any info would be appreciated.

    The quick connect is is the tip off- it's low pressure- 11wc (water column), less than 1 psi. This is the design, not a flaw or obstruction. If you want to use the outside port, you'll need to find a low pressure stove.
    Coleman/Fleetwood had a separate high pressure line that you can connect regular stoves/bbq's to.
    Quick connect = low pressure
    Screw connection = high pressure

    this type of tee will allow you to connect the 20lb propane container to the trailer leaving a connection for the coleman stove

    here or here to with either type of hose connection for the stove.

    Or.. get a Coleman road trip BBQ and for ten dollars you can convert it to use a lp connect on your trailer. U caneed then buy an attachment for the burner so that u can use pots on the BBQ. Save even more money and get a used Coleman.

    I think I will look into a high pressure hose since we also have a big buddy heater. Thanks again.

    You need a high pressure hose for a Coleman propane stove.

    FWIW, You don't need any hose if you use a Coleman gasoline stove like a model 424...

    Which is why some interior stoves can be carried outside and plugged in to the exterior low pressure port (as was/is true of our Aliner)

    Having travelled in trailers with a stove that can be connected to the out side, and trailers using a wholly separate stove, I much prefer the separate stove, whether fueled by propane or white gas. Often set up to cook outside, away from trailer, setting the stove on end of USFS, etc. picnic table, or on our rollup table.
