Outside kitchen propane connection.

Outside kitchen gas line, very low pressure with full tank of propane, not even enough pressure to run one eyelet on a camping stove. Any thoughts? One suggestion that it could be the new hose I purchased, Sounds a little far fetched, but could it be? How to check pressure or improve pressure? Is there more than one cut off valve? 2016 34F Hurricane, purchased used, first outside kitchen use. Any advise would be appreciated.Last rig class C only cooked three times inside in fifteen years.

What kind of camping stove? Those pre-regulated propane outlets are meant to be used with stoves that don't have regulators...

Straight hook up no additional regulator. I've tried following the line from the tank to the quick disconnect the best I could did not see any additional shut off valves. There is a cover over what I assume is the regulator for the outside kitchen, it is where the piping goes, just haven't opened it up yet.

As Bob implied, if you are trying to use a grill or stove that normally uses 1 lb propane bottles it will not work regardless of what hose you have as the quick connect propane is already regulated to operating pressure. Connecting that to the input of the grill's/stove's regulator gets you nada.

Plenty of discussions on this forum about this: might try the search feature.

There are adapters available on Amazon that allow you to replace the regulator on your grill/stove with a quick connect fitting that is made to connect to the low pressure connections on RVs. They may or may not work for your appliance.

The setup on my Challenger is similar to the Hurricane. I have the shutoff valve at the LP tank and one on the quick connect on the passenger's side of the coach. I also have one on the hose that goes from the quick connect to the grill.

I converted a Weber Q for use on my coach. Here is the link to the thread which includes the links to all parts used in the process.

On our new Siesta, the propane manifold was installed in such a way that the water heater line and the line to the outside adapter were kinked..see photo.

Follow the propane line from the tank and see if something similar exists on your rig.
