What you need is a 10-12ft male threaded hose quick connect hose with the quick plug on the other end. The brass regulator pipe needs to be removed for the 1# cans. You then need a 1" wide minimum, 1/4" NPT brass nipple to connect the 2 male pipe ends. The key to the connection is the space between the two pipe connections. If you are too close like 3/4" wide the gas will not flow right and your BTU's will not be high enough. Use yellow Teflon tape on the connections too. Later this week I will post some shots when I pull my grill out of storage to better illustrate and confirm the connections. It's been 5 years since I have done this adaption.
Would love to see how you've done it 3'enough!

I found this old thread because I'm also trying to find the hose/connectors to change over my Nexgrill table top to work with the onboard quickconnection. I believe I've found the correct male plug for the rear of the RV, now to find a 5' hose and the female nut for the bbq. My local Jayco dealer told me to bring the whole thing in and they'd try and work something up.

I bet any local propane dealer can "fix it" or sell you the fitting to connect it up.
What size pipe runs from the regulator to the controls,a simple flare nut/fitting setup would work for connecting the new hose after regulator removed.
I have been looking at a stainlesssteel grill at Lowes that is about $100 to go along with my $15 walmart "4 burger" charcoal grill.

Quick question,is the regulator part of the grill so a small bottle attaches OR is the regulator at the bottle end of a hose which attaches to a big bottle?

The quick connect at the back of the trailer has bottle pressure on it. You will have to get that fitting that will connect to the hose at the back of the camper. Buy a 10' to 15' LP hose with 1/4" male or female fittings on the ends and connect the quick connect fitting on one end and the one pound bottle connector on the other end(shown in the picture with a regulator). sorry i don't have the quick connect fitting to show. All these parts can be bought at a hardware store. Jayco or the dealer can tell u what fitting you will need to hook up to the camper end. Hope this helps

If you go to the trailerlife forum there is an entry under the thread of Diy mods that shows, in my opinion, the best mod to connect the Lxe grill to the low pressure quick connect on you TT. I never thought it was possible, so this proves my previous post in this thread WRONG. The guy even made a youtube video that shows how to do it with just a couple of part changes. He gives the youtube link in his post.
