camp stoves

I want to buy a small stove to cook outside the motor home. Can somebody tell me how to identify the difference between a high pressure stove and a low pressure stove.
I would like to run it off my main propane tank if possible.
Your help would be appreciated.

I've looked for similar setups, but didn't like how I'd have to have a propane pipe running from the rig to the table with all the kiddos running around.

I just use a Coleman or Ozark Trail camp stove when cooking outside the camper and I'm too lazy to fire up coals or don't have a fire pit. They're easy to maintain, compact and the fuel source is inexpensive and very packable.

An easy way to find out is go to a camping store that sells stoves and ask. I personally like my Coleman with the propane bottles that I can move anywhere in the campsite and cook on. Having hoses laying on the ground is not what I want and I do not use the stove all that often but that is just me.

The difference between high and low pressure is whether the propane feed is before your regulator (HIGH) or after the regulator (LOW). If the feed is after the coach regulator, you need a stove without a regulator. I bought a Weber Baby Q grill and removed the regulator since my feed is low pressure.

You might consider a small butane unit. They are very light and the fuel canisters are as well. We've had this one between the boat and rv for 20 years.

Basically, if the stove works with those little 1 lb LP bottles, i.e. you screw one in and light it up, then it has its own internal regulator and requires high (bottle) pressure. If it is designed to be used with a low pressure source, i.e. an external regulator and tank, it won't accept the little bottles.

That's not scientific, but it's a practical way for a novice to tell the difference.
