You'll get a lot of folks at hardware stores, etc, who will look at you like you're stupid when you tell them what you're doing. It works great!
How strange. We used a little LP regulator like what goes on the bigger BBQ grills (not the little combo regulator/control like you find on the portable table top grills) to run my 30" LP range. This is not the first time that we have done this. We use the same regulator we used on the pop-up and on ALL our BBQ tanks to run various LP stuff. We've done this over a couple of decades. I don't know what you read or were told, but you either misunderstood or you were told wrong.

Re: Sherm's family's new skoolie!

my dad runs a full size stove off a 20lb tank, oven works well. most stoves , fridges, bbqs, can run (did it in my bus), if you some big ass commercal stove then a bigger reg ismay be needed. one thing I do know, is the cheapee reg on my little home bbq crapped out, so when i put one in the bus, I got a better quaity then on standared bbq, I saw a adjustable reg as well it was used for big industral stuff.

anyway make a loaf of bread, and enjoy the ocean veiw you have now

Re: Sherm's family's new skoolie!

About the cook top: just remember that burns oxygen, so an open window is a must. Also some kind of chimney for exhaust gases. Make sure the hose does not rub anywhere. Other than that, you figured it right. Have fun!.
