Before you do that, take a tape measure and use it to describe an 8' arc with the BBQ fitting on the trailer as the focus. Everywhere along that arc is where you can comfortably place your grill.

Then try it at 15'. You'll be surprised.
15' would probably work. My obstacle is that my quick connect is to the rear of my bathroom entry steps so I lose several feet of hose just going under or behind them. I may see if a local propane dealer can make me a custom hose.

15' was a semi-arbitrary distance of how much real coverage a 20' section of hose will provide without pulling or kinking.

The fittings for low-pressure propane are either 1/4" NPT or 3/8" flare. Even though they are about the same size, you will never mistake them for each other once you see both side by side.

When you discuss this with a reputable propane dealer, they will definitely set you up with the proper pieces. Possibly even the correct quick connect that'll fit your RV.

Just buy whatever length of hose you want. You can cut your short hose in half, and with a couple of barbed nipples, you can splice in the long hose. Did this with mine after the same frustration of trying to find a long hose. Total cost to add 12' of length to my existing short hose was about $12. Remember, your gas is regulated at the tanks, so this is a low pressure gas line, no worries about splicing in a section of hose.

We have the Camco 10 ft hose for the grille which is good enough, and there's a 15 ft hose on the gas fire pit. When we're using the fire pit, I connect the two together giving me 25 ft of hose. Works pretty good.
