Relocate BBQ gas line

Has anybody relocated the gas line for the BBQ? Mine comes out to a disconnect at the rear bumper. I don't like cooking out the back of the trailer and the bumper mount for the BBQ is just plain stupid.

Was thinking of dropping the line down from the frame and bringing it to the front DS of the trailer. I was thinking I'd just route it across near the axles so I don't have to make a new line and then route it back to the front.

Edit: changed my search words and found some threads about it, doing some reading now. Post here though if you completed the job on your trailer

I haven't but it shouldn't be difficult. I plan to get a gas grill I can connect to that line next season. Let us know how your reroute goes.

I found this thread but doesn't look like anyone actually moved the line.

A number of threads show up searching "relocate bbq gas" but I haven't read them all to see if anyone actually did it.

I didn't relocate the line but I put a Tee into the threaded fitting where the hose entered the frame and ran a new line to the front of the trailer now I have front and rear connections. It's not a difficult job but the cost of a new hose with fittings was outrageous. I ended up buying a 10' hose with quick disconnect fittings off of Amazon for $25.

I just put a long hose on the grill.


No need to mod the RV. Just reach under the bumper to hook up. Grill and table live anywhere under the awning.

Where did you get the long hose? The longest I could find was 10 feet and I'd like one about double that.

I was thinking about looping it back up and placing it in front of the wheels, but then I got to thinking about it being pretty well protected back there at the bumper (protected from road debris) so I'm back to reconsidering that. I think I'll go with the 10 foot hose, found one at Amazon http://amzn.to/2bDf8xK if you need longer you can always buy 2 and plug them end to end. OR here's a 25 foot hose http://amzn.to/2bAtyln but you would have to put on the fittings.

Mine runs down the ODS from a distribution block under the kitchen slide area. I'll just remove all the hose supports are route it back to the front and across to the other side using the OE hose. I'd need a 30' extension to get it to where I want it. A 5' or 10' house will then work from the relocated QD.

Then I'll take the BBQ mount off the back and throw it in the corner of the garage with the BBQ that came with the trailer

Walmart has the 10' cheaper https://www.walmart.com/ip/Camco-Hea...-hose/29764621

I got it when I bought the grill at Lowes last fall. Yes it is about 10'. That's more than enough for my 19RD.

Buy 2. Lowes had the fittings to connect them.

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.
