    Just purchased a 1998 Viking 2470 from a neighbor and wanted to know what I would need to connect the outside propane line to a Coleman stove. I know the connections are different but haven't been able to find an adaptor that can do it?

    Is it even possible?

    which part of the outside propane line are you referring?

    The one that is for the in/out stove that hangs on the side of the PU will not work with a Coleman propane stove.

    Your PU has a propane container (container pressure), it then feeds to a 2 stage regulator, this regulated low pressure (< 0.5 psi) enters the PU for the stove, furnace, fridge ... some of these are further regulated.

    A Coleman propane stove operates on regulated high pressure of 15psi.

    There are tees etc available to connect to the container and then a hose to a Coleman stove. This delivers container pressure to the stove's regulator and then is regulated to 15 psi as an operating pressure.

    Grills are different, most operate @ regulated low pressure so the outside line can be connected to a grill that has its regulator removed, plenty of youtube videos of how to do that.

    All PUs are not the same, some Coleman/fleetwood have an outside regulated high pressure (16psi IIRC) hose that works well with a coleman stove.

    Your coleman stove is a high pressure stove. The lines on the camper are all low pressure. The upshot is that with a direct connection you could connect your Coleman to your tank(s), you can't do it with the existing lines.

    You could use one of these as a direct connection to your tanks.
