Camping Tips from Ontario Parks – Using a Coleman Stove


To get started you’re just going to flip the clasp and open it up. Inside you’ll find the two wind flaps that fold open, just like this. To get these, you just compress it and insert them in the side here. and than again here, insert it there. That’s just to prevent any wind from blowing your flame out. The next step is to pull out our propane connector. It’s inserted just in the middle, just looks like this. Before we go any further, we’re going to want to make sure the stove is turned completely off so the dials are turned all the way to the right. They are, we can start connecting the propane. To do that, you’re going to insert this into the hole on the side, right here. Insert it, push the clasp over, and twist it on. You just gotta make sure you get a nice tight twist in like that. You can feel that it’s nice and tight there. The next step is to connect the propane itself. So that’s just going to go on the dial here. Again just make sure you get a nice tight twist in there. These can be a little bit tricky, but with a little perseverance there you go it’s in. Now the next step is to light the stove. To do that, you’re gonna use just your little lighter like this, a barbecue lighter, and have it right beside the burner. Turn some gas on, the right nozzle will line up with the right burner. So turn it on just a little bit to give it a little bit of gas. You’ll hear the gas, and than there you go, your stove is lit. So do the other side, it’s the same thing, a little bit of gas, and your stove is lit. When you’re all done, just turn these back to the right, and your burners are off.

  1. your video editing is real bad , one shot the tank is in the right position , the rest of the video it is in the wrong position , must be his first year in the parks system, read the manual before you do any more videos , your going to get someone hurt who thinks you are right . 

  2. This is why reading instructions can save your life, this video shows the tank in the wrong position on one part while he is lighting this beast up and right on another. please read instructions from the manufacturer before you handle anything that can kill or cause disfigurement to you or someone you care about. but this stove is the business.

  3. BIG SAFETY ISSUE ERRORS: (1) You did NOT demonstrate how to check for PROPANE LEAKS before first use. (2) You attached the propane tank placed in the WRONG position. You need to go BACK TO SCHOOL and be suspended from work until you pass all the safety issue tests.

  4. The instructions have a safety warning NOT to connect the propane tank in an inverted position. They show an illustration of the tank in the EXACT same position as you had your tank to illustrate the WRONG and DANGEROUS way to connect the tank.

  5. Uh…. Make sure you rotate the propane bottle back to the side of the stove instead of in front hanging off the table. The way you show will stress the joints, and tube potentially causing a leak and fire / explosion hazard!

  6. You would think after 6 years this video would come down since it shows the propane tank in the wrong position.
