    Ok, so I have not yet found what I'm looking for, and maybe it's because I'm not supposed to do it!

    I have a 2002 Coleman Utah, the outside propane connection is HP, looks like the disposable cylinder type. I have a stove that came with the camper, that plugs into it, got i, no problem. I also have a George Foreman travel grill that uses the same type fittings, also the disposable bottles. What I'd like to do, and maybe it's not made, is purchase a y (maybe a t?) so that I can attach it to the PUP, attach one fitting to the stove, and have the other one be the old style (bulk?) using a hose that goes from a bulk tank to the George Foreman.

    I have this hose: http://www.homedepot.com/Outdoors-Grills-Grill-Accessories/h_d1/N-25ecodZ5yc1vZ25ecodZbxazZ12kzZ12kxZ12ky/R-100148371/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=propane&storeId=10051

    Thanks for any advice!

    I wanted to do the same thing. I got a 4foot hose at wallys and had 36' added to it. I was not able to find a T or a Y (but I have seen them now at walmart in the camping section) so I added a second tank. One for the pup and one for cooking. I cook a lot so it works out fine.

    You need a Marshall add-a-tee like bupkis suggests.

    I ran into the same problem. I got onto the internet and found several adapters on propane accessory sites. I finally found the perfect Fitting. It was pricey $50 plus dallors but it was worth it without adding a lot of extra hoses and adapters. By the way, you can attach more hose to that kind of hoses. Walmart has the cheapest prices. It's been several years since I bought the T-adapter. It screws onto the fitting on the camper, then the 2 hoses can attach to the Tee. I wish I could remember the web site. Good luck!

    Thanks for the help! I think the Y in conjuction with the "Steak Saver" will allow me to only use 1 hose and 1 adapter!

    When I get it, I'll try it, and let you guys know how it worked! Thanks again!

    Thanks, this is exactly what I needed, but, I can't get it on the pup, not enough room. Is there an extension I can purchase, to give me more room? Can't seem to find one no matter how hard I look!

    Thanks,
    Tdogg!

    The Marshal add a tee is what I bought several years ago. Plenty of room on my coleman/fleetwoods. I don't know about any extentions. Maybe try to extend your male fitting out more on your camper somehow? Good luck!

    Thanks. I would have the thought the female fitting on the Marshall add a tee would spin, allowing me to screw it on, but it does not, meaning I have to spin the entire adapter, which is why I can't install it. I tried to remove the adapter from the camper to see if I could do it that way, but no dice there either. Don't wan to have to use a hose, and then all these adapters...do you remember if the end on your marshall adapter spun to install it on the male end on the camper?
