Gday all

I have a Jayco Eagle with gas bottle and an extra plumbed outlet for a BBQ / cooker etc.
I want to run an 'even temp' cooker eventemp
from the extra outlet.
Question is .... as the bottle has a regulator and the Coleman stove has its own regulator .... is this likely to work? Do 2 regulators mean not enough gas will get through or will the Coleman reg. only further reduce pressure if the bottle regulator is not low enough for the Coleman??
Any help appreciated.
cheers
John

Why not ring Coleman Australia & ask how to hard plumb their stove?

Yes I have done that already and their response was.... 'try it and if it doesn't work then speak to a plumber' ... from the so called Coleman technical assistance team.

So... anyone tried it??

OK,

Yes, a friend of mine hard plumbed one into his CT, but after talking to a plumber he teed it off before the bottle regulator & used the Coleman one for the stove only only.

Hi
"from the so called Coleman technical assistance team. "
I think their answer is very valid.
Once you start hard connecting you are treading on a mine field legally.
All such work should be done only by licensed gas fitter.
Re your question whether it will work to full extent ie max flame depends on individual reg settings. IF bottle reg is set for higher pressure then 2nd reg will just reduce to its setting.
IF bottle reg is set to lower pressure then it will not work. @ max heat.
As the man said try it & see.

Thanks for that. The gas is properly plumbed and legal. I am only wondering re 2 regulators.

Try it and see seems unsatisfactory if I need to spend $270 and find it doesn't work.

I'll attempt to find out the pressures the two regulators work to.

Very few organisations or businesses will give information that may be contrary to their published operating instructions. Too risky with the ever present threat of litigation when someone who hasn't a clue about what they are doing manages to kill or injure someone else. When will people learn !!!

Impossible to answer without knowing the size and rating of the regulators but as a general rule if the first reg's outlet pressure is higher than the setting of the Coleman one then the Coleman reg should do it's job and reduce the pressure accordingly. If the pressure from the bottle reg is too low the one on the cooker may not operate.
How anyone could be expexted to answer this over the phone without knowing operating pressures, flow rates etc is beyond me, I think you are being a bit hard on Coleman's technical dept.
