    16 psi is unique to the HP exterior stoves on some coleman trailers (after they stopped using Coleman stoves???).
    Those unregulated stoves operated via 16 psi propane. A 15psi or 20 or 30 would work fine for almost any regulated appliance or an adjustable one.

    FWIW, I got a baby Q to operate fine off my regulated low pressure outside port, another stamped metal little grill worked but turning it from low to med to high caused no change in the tiny flame. Both were with the grill's original regulated still attached. Tried a portable buddy heater with reg intact, fluttered and did not operate well.

    UPDATE.....thanks to all for your help.
    The "steaksaver" seems to have done the trick, I also added a valve in line so I can hook up line, turn on propane before setting up trailer. It runs a tad lower than I would have liked but feel safer than the way she was running previously.
    Again, thanks to all.

    Myride, glad you were able to fix your issue. I am battling something similar. Mind posting a pic of your solution?

    It will be a little while before I can post pics....still in storage but....HP port on trailer frame I attached a "steak saver" coupling, then to that a check valve and a quick connect....works fabulous. The reason for the check valve is once you screw the steak saver onto port it free flows until you connect the stove or quick connect....this way I just shut valve, connect....connect stove via quick connect and turn on valve.....voila.....

    Here's what you need,
    1- steak saver that goes into HP port on side of trailer, I then use the Camp Chef hose supplied with the stove but added a quick-connect with an on/off valve....reason being once you screw the steak saver into place it will spew propane unless you have a way to shut it off......I leave this whole assembly together preventing leaking propane while attaching. From there I added a 10 ft hose with the male quick connect on one end and the standard filling on the other for the stove......
    Won't let me upload image...file too large

    No...steak saver screws to trailer HP on frame of pup......this allows you to then use the regulator connector suplied with you stove.

    All Coleman trailers had either the screw type HP or the quick connect LP.......this rig is to allow you to run your camp chef or other stoves from an HP connector on trailer frame

    Make sense?

    Steak saver on trailer w/ stove regulator attached 2019-07-09_19.24.16.jpg

    Here's the important end....
    Make sure you have a valve on quick connect to prevent propane loss when hooking it all up

    Lol, thats an interesting set up. I allready put a shut off valve in line with the gas. I do know if that spring clip shut off in the original fails, its a mess. And its even harder to get a replacement as its a reverse thread. Ty for the pic.

    I should have , it took me like 2 months to track one down. The first one wouldn't screw on. Then after looking at it ,i relized the old was reverse threaded. Then ,i went to all the welding guys, after the guys that arually make propane lines couldn't help , because its a welding thread. What a pita. I cut the brass line and re flared it , putting in a gas shut off. So if it brakes again, i dont have to replace it.
