wrong size, wouldn't fit my generator hose or my fitting on the gas line. Could not use. I need a 1/2" fitting on both ends.

That is not good to hear. It looks like we only carry 1.25 or 1 inch adapter fittings. Lets get you over to our customer service to work on getting you a return set up.


Quality-looking part. All brass and steele. Haven't had a chance to install and test it yet.

The USPS took an annoyingly-long time to deliver the parts (2 weeks from Missouri to Texas!), so if you have an alternative service to use, I'd take it!


This is about the fifth time I've ordered from etrailer and I've never been disappointed.
I ordered a lp gas quick disconnect for my outdoor stove this time, it arrived ahead of time, was exactly as described ( and just what I needed) and at an reasonable price.
etrailer's customer service is outstanding, their very helpful and eager to please.
Thanks for the great service once again.



I used this product to create a connector hose to allow me to use my low pressure stove with a 5 gallon propane tank at my home for picnics, canning etc. its working out perfectly. Thanks again etrsiler!


Items arrived in good time. We are looking forward to running our griddle off of the motorhome LP tank, after installing the shutoff on our class a motorhome.


Why did I buy this QD by MD Sturis when I could have purchased a similar item, but not made in the USA, at a much lower price from a huge on-line store? MD Stugis, made in the USA. The QD was adapted to mount directly on a single tank regulator that I recently removed to our travel trailer in order to upgrade to dual tanks. This QD makes it very convenient to hook to our griddle and then to store after use. I also use the griddle with our travel trailer that has a remote QD connection, so I don't have to take an extra tank, just the supply hose.

Ray, not going to lie, you had me anxiously sipping my coffee as I started reading your review. I am so glad to hear you are pleased with the quality of this product!


Always have what you need and great pro ducts



Always quality products.


Works as expected.


This is what happened...a shredded tire on the travel trailer ripped a gas connector from my unit. The MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector - 1/4" FPT was a perfect replacement that has worked great.



Solid, thats why I use etrailer!


The 1/4" Ball Valve Quick Connect x FPT - 104052 MBS is a high quality valve with a S.S. ball and positive shut off, The valve action is very smooth. The valve handle when open will not let the quick connect sleeve move back and disconnect the LP hose. Many valve of this type do not have a dust cap, a dust cap on this valve in the location that is being used is very important.

The 104052-MBS is used regularly and works wonderfully. All of the products that we have purchased from etrailer are of great. We are very happy with your company. Thank you Larry


Etrailer is one of the best


Installed on LP regulator w/hose to allow RV Bar BQ use at home. Exact fit for my low pressure LP Bar BQ quick disconnect.

James M.


Great as expected. Best is buying the male and female parts from the same manufacturer as they always match and your project is successful.


Purchased before and it works great. Safety feature is simple enough and works well. As long as you buy MB Sturgis quick disconnect parts, they fit perfectly.

Jim M.


Still doing the job without problems. Bar BQ is used at home as well as camping. Reliability is found in keeping the mating equipment by the same manufacturer and making sure the products are of high quality.


Handy fitting to get a high pressure line off the propane cylinder without disconnecting it.



After 1 year still working well. I use it regularly most every trip.


I bought this to use to hook up my Weber grill to the propane port on my motorhome. Seems to be very good quality. Chose this one because it is made in the USA.



Still working as it should, no problems


Simple update to the gas-line that already existed under my Toy Hauler.
Now I can hook up my 3-burner gas stove or my mini BBQ without having to verify that I have a LP tank filled and ready to go. I simply just use the LP tanks on the trailer instead.


Exactly what I wanted and needed to finish a quick connect between my 5th wheel tanks and my Coleman grill. Easy to order, easy to track and arrived on time. Great experience.


Worked out great!


Needed a way to have a quick disconnect inside my home so I could move a 30,000 bent free space heater from basement to garage but could not find anything at any stores that would work. So I purchased a hose and two of these and hooked them to 1/4 black pipe connector and works great.


etrailer consistently pleases me with quality products, service and great pricing. I recommend etrailer to my friends and to random people on the internet.


Looks like it will do the job of connecting to my gas grill and then either to my house propane supply or to a 20 lb. propane bottle via some female 1/4 quick disconnects and some assorted fittings.


I have ordered from 3 times and have been extremely pleased each and every time. The orders are filled and delivered in a very timely manner. I have been more than satisfied with the products that i have received.


Good quality product!


I use use them once a week on my home coffee roasting setup and daily in the spring on my maple boiling setup. Great quality and tolerances. easy to use. Always a good mate.


The item in question was a known quantity, a familiar item from a familiar manufacturer, and I am happy with it.

I am writing to recommend as an excellent vendor with good prices, fast turnaround, a good customer service team, and no nonsense.


The quality is great and the function is just as good. Mounted these on my off-road trailer and they have held up to the elements.

  • What is the Flow Capacity of the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector # 104052-MBS
    The MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector # 104052-MBS is meant to be used for LP (low pressure) or natural gas tanks. It has a max flow capacity of 40,000 Btu per hour for LP gas and 14,000 Btu per hour for natural gas. Without a regulator your 25 gallon propane bottle should be putting out more than that so you will need a regulator before this connection.

  • What Is the Length Of the MB Sturgis Quick-Disconnect Propane Connector?
    I went out to our warehouse and measured the MB Sturgis Quick-Disconnect Propane Connector # 104052-MBS like you asked, and got 2-3/4" for an overall length. This connector also has a 40,000-Btu per hour maximum flow capacity for LP propane, 14,000-Btu per hour flow capacity for natural gas, and has a temperature range of -40°F to 350°F. I've also attached a diagram showing this measurement for you to check out as well.

  • Replacement Female Propane Quick Disconnect Port on Trailer
    In order to replace the propane quick disconnect fittings I recommend the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Kit for Low Pressure Appliances part # 104052-401132 which comes with both male and female but we do offer just the female as the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector part # 104052-MBS. Please note, quick disconnect fittings wear out over time and become more difficult to use so replacement is best but I can't recommend any sort of grease.

  • Quick-Disconnect Propane Fitting with a Male 3/8" Inverted Flare
    I do have an option for you but the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector part # 104052-MBS is not offered with a male 3/8" inverted flare model 250 quick-disconnect fitting. We do have the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Adapter part # 401132-MBS which has a male 1/4" NPT model 250 quick-disconnect fitting but you would need to use an adapter to convert the male 1/4" NPT to a male 3/8" inverted flare which we do not have.

  • Recommended Propane Hoses and Adapters for 2005 Thor Wanderer Toy Hauler
    The MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Hose for Small Appliance - Disposable Cylinder Port - 6' # 100476-72-MBS is a great hose to have for your gas grill so you don't need to deplete the propane supply of your trailer tanks. For your gas line, you will want the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector - 1/4" FPT # 104052-MBS but you would need to find the adapter to 1/4 inch at a local home improvement store.

    The MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Connector # 104052-MBS and the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect Propane Hose for Small Appliance # 100476-120-MBS that you referenced are designed to be able to connect to each other.

  • Comparing Gas Volume and BTU Specs for Propane Quick Disconnects 104052-MBS and CAM59853
    The Camco Quick-Connect Kit for Low Pressure Propane Systems # CAM59853 has the same fittings and dimensions as the MB Sturgis Quick Disconnect # 104052-MBS so it will pass an identical volume of propane (40-standard cubic feet per hour) and deliver the same 40,000 BTUs.

  • Getting Low Pressure Using Quick-Disconnect
    The only thing I can really think of here is there may be a small leak of some sort with the fitting. If you haven't already, I would try using Thread Sealant Tape # 37207-30025 to see if that helps.

  • Recommended Pressure Gauge & Shut Off for 100 lb Tank

  • Quick Disconnect Gas Fitting To Connect Turkey Fryer to RV
    Thank you for sending these additional pictures. It appears that the hose with fittings, that you have, are designed to connect directly to a 20 pound propane tank. Therefore, on one end you have a large Type-1 connector to attach direcly to the 20 pound tank, then it goes through a propane regulator, then through a length of hose and on the other end is a swivel connector of some size, then into a reducer bushing, then into (what looks like) a tiny carberator jet. So, first, your RV...

  • How to Adapt From 1/4 inch Inverted Flare to Quick Disconnect Propane
    Here's what you need to do. On the 4 port adapter there is a very small plug with the tether on it going into a larger adapter with the other end of the tether on it that goes directly into the barrel of the 4 port adapter. Remove the small plug, then use a 5/8" socket to remove the 1/4" NPT fitting that is directly into the barrel of the 4 port adapter. Then all you need to do is use a standard 1/4" NPT nipple of whatever length you require to go directly into the 4 port adapter with...
