Propane Fire Pit

Thinking about getting a propane Fire Pit for nights I donít feel like chopping wood. Iíve seen 19Ē up to 24Ē. Any pros and/or cons of this item? Any suggestions for brand / model?

This is my 3rd pit; the first one (large upright) rusted out after many years, the second similar one was vibrated apart riding on a bumper hitch. This tiny one is just right.

I have a Outlandish Cypress model. It has slightly different configuration of the propane jets which produces a nice looking flame. Fits in the basement easy

We also have the Outland version listed above.

Some friends have one and my wife decided she wanted one, so now we have one......

I did buy a long hose that we can plug right into the propane outlet on the trailer so we do not have to mess with extra tanks.

Curious about this..... What's the propane outlet? Is it the same as the fill port? Or is there another port one would need to add?

Fffrank-

1) Your coach's propane tank is fixed; "Nwcid's" cylinders are portable. The firepit uses a lot of gas. The delivery service at an RV park where I stay charges $5 a gallon for propane. The nearby Tractor Supply charges $2 a gallon to fill a cylinder.

2) The instructions that come with the Outland firepit may say something like "You must use the regulator that comes with the firepit," or something similar, with an implied warning that if a disaster occurs, it's all on you.

If you want to honor that warning, you would need to add a connection on the high-pressure side of the coach's propane system, between the tank outlet and the dual-stage regulator that feeds the rest of the coach. Camco and Sturgis (and others) sell tee fittings that go in that location, with names such as "Extend-a-Stay" and "Sturgi-Stay." There are lots of posts on iRV2 about those tee fittings.

Unhappily, the hoses that you can get with the typical "Stay" kit are:

- limited to 12 feet long, and
- made up with connectors to fit a barbeque grill (known as a "1-20" fitting)

If you want something different, you have to put it together yourself. I recently looked into this, and found that while it could be done I would end up spending more money that I would buying a stand-alone 20-pound grill cylinder (about $30).

If you do end up with a new hose upstream of the regulator on your coach, make sure it is rated for "high pressure," which is usually a 300 psi rating. In my designs, I wanted a (high-pressure-rated) valve upstream of that hose, to allow the hose to stay connected, but not pressurized all the time.

firepit

I bought a 19" propane firepit from Home Depot several years ago to use at home. It attaches to a 20 pound tank. I also bought a 20 foot propane hose with RV quick disconnects on it and use it when we go camping. It plugs into my trailer's propane system and uses it's regulator. Since it is portable it can be put any place you want. The bottom does not get hot. I have set it on a mat and it stays cool.

I have kept it dry since I bought it and it works very good. Several campers have stopped by our sites asking about it and 3 of our camping friends have since bought one. They are so simple and easy to use. No more chopping wood or smelly fires to deal with.

Get a fire pit that has a lid to keep the lava rock contained during travel.

Many RV's come with a quick connect propane outlet mounted somewhere under the rig. In my case it is near the front stairs.

As stated above I have a 5th wheel which has 2 - 7.5 gallon portable tanks.

Here is an image from the internet for an example,

Do NOT--NOT-- lean over the firepit until AFTER it is lit.
Don't ask how I know
