Propane line extension.

#1

Post by Locke »

Good afternoon folks. How y'all doin' today?
Had an account here a few years ago but can't find my login info so I've had to start a new account.

Anywho, got myself on a bit of a unicorn hunt and could use some help/advice.
I have an off brand two burner propane stove that uses the standard 1lb bottles. I'll be using it on my 22' sailboat but it's a bit problematic. The regulator sticks off to the right side into the sink. I can't move the stove due to space other than moving it outside which I will do on occasion.
Does anyone make either an extended regulator that can be bent to place the bottle behind the stove? Or a flexible extension that can mount into the existing regulator so that I can reposition the bottle elsewhere?
I will try to figure out a way to either gimbal the stove, add some pot holders, or both later if needed.

If you have a good torch, you might heat and bend the existing pipe such that the tank is somewhat located more behind the stove. There may be other solutions depending on your skill level and tools.

I have no problem bending the tube. It's not much different than brakelines. I have a tubing bender I could use. I'll have to measure it. I'm not sure if it's long enough. Good idea though.

If bending? Make sure tank sits the same as it once did pictured. A slight angle is the correct position of tank..campinut

They have to sit at an angle? Hmmmm.... Then that wont work. Propane stoves are a PITA. I'd use one of my good liquid stoves but I don't want to damage them on my boat. And of course I can't get an Origo non pressurize alcohol stove anymore. May have to rethink this.

You can use a coleman suitcase stove with a propane adapter. The tank will be up front that way? By pulling the wg tank, the propane attachment slips into the same hole. Tank will sit up front and on an angle, if there is enough room?..campinut

You might use a single burner butane stove similar to the below on the boat.

A consideration, if this would appeal to you. Have a stove that would accept propane, white gas or RUG. For versatility.

A used cheap Coleman 425 or 413 2 burner stove. Which ever would fit the space.

You could use the original tank for use of CCF or RUG, if needed.

But you can purchase a Stansports or Mr. Buddy propane stove converter. I have on of the Stansports and it works great. It connects to 1lb propane bottles or you can get a short flexible hose to connect a 5lb or larger tank. You can connect the converter to a tank secured in lower vertical position if you wish.

The stove and tank can be use outside as well. You have the original Coleman liquid fuel tank original with the stove as back up.

That fuel line conversion to a 20# tank, does anyone make one like it that connects to a 1lb bottle?
Space is my biggest consideration. I don't have room for a big tank on my little boat, but I can fit several 1lb bottles.
My next concern is securing it. The current stove has legs that I can secure down to keep it from sliding off my counter. My suitcase stove does not. I would need to either rely on velcro or permanently modify the stove to make it work. I don't want to do that. Stupid regulations making things hard. Wouldn't be a problem if I could get my hands on a nonpressurized alcohol stove. Can't afford $500 for a stove right now.

Is there enough tubing inside the stove to bend it around so the connection could be fed to the back of the stove. You'd have to drill a hole in the rear and fabricate a bracket to hold the end of the line.

I've been looking for a couple days and only found the tank adapters.....
It even comes in braided....
Jeez... I need a drink. Not that I need a reason for one but still. Cajun you're the best. I can make that work. Opens up some other options given the length.

I too vote for a liquid fueled stove with a propane adapter. If you'd like to use a liquid fueled stove, you can get one of those non-skid mats and place under it. So far as I know, they should be available at any home goods or department stores. Heck, maybe even still at the dollar store.

If you're really wanting to use what you have, likely there's a propane dealer near you that can make up what you need, such as a rubber hose with the proper fittings at each end. That way, you can keep the bottle vertical elsewhere. They may even be able to use your existing adapter's fittings if they don't stock them. It's certainly worth a shot. Some of those propane guys are into propane stuff like we are with Colman stuff. To be clear, by propane dealer, I mean a place that sells and services propane stoves and grills, and not a place that only refills tanks.
