Why wouldn't it put out the same amount of heat running off the TT? If you decide to run it off the trailer plug-in (which is regulated at 11" w.c.) you'll have to remove the high pressure regulator/control knob on the grill where the disposable cylinder screws in. Then you connect your hose to the trailer and you should be in business. The only way to change the heat output is to change the orifice size, given the pressure remains the same.
I have a $5 Rhino reduced-for-quick-sale down from $40 grill from Lowes. It was missing the regulator/control knob...how perfect was that? I simply added the correct size orifice to the burner pipe, a quarter turn valve to throttle the gas and a long hose with a male connector to plug into the 23B. Works like a charm!!
