Coleman Road Trip L.P. grill

I have a Coleman Road Trip L.P. grill that uses disposable L.P. bottles. The bottles connect to a psi regulator assembly that connects to the grill. I would like to use a hose from my L.P. quick connect located below the 5th wheel bumper.

The question is, since the quick connect is fed from my psi regulated dual LP camper tanks and the hose connects to the fitting for LP bottles on the grill and that assembly has a regulator, will I have a problem with 2 regulators in line before the grill?

Yes...you will need to remove the regulator from the grill

You can’t if it’s like mine. It’s a one piece unit that threads on to a 1lb tank and serves as a regulator, heat control that plugs directly into the burner assembly.

There are several videos on making the conversion.

I researched this awhile back and you can buy the adapter. I decided against going that route. I was using a 5 pound bottle but changed over to refillable 1 pound bottles and like them the best.

I did the conversion to mine. I removed my regulator, added a 25' flexible rubber line with the respective attachments at each end to connect to the grille and TT low pressure connector. It works great and with 25', I'm far enough from the TT that I don't have to worry about grease spatter on the TT.

I use Flame King instead of the one pound tanks. These are DOT certified to refill:

I did the same thing - Works great and I agree being away from the camper is great...

I did just the opposite. I got tired of freezing the 1 pounders and messing with them. It costs me less than three dollars to fill up the 5 pounder (same price per gallon as filling the twenty, thirty etc.) and no work on my part. Different strokes.

I carry a separate 20lb tank for the Weber Q and a 2 burner cooktop.

Allows me to set up anywhere, or move as needed. If it is raining edge under the awning. If smoke and wind are an issue I move.

Also provides a spare tank if there is an issue with the 2 main tanks. Easy and inexpensive refills, never worry about running out of propane.

I wish the adapter was available when I did mine. I had to molest it to make it work with the low pressure port on my trailer. I have a fairly long quick connect whip so I can move it around a bit. For me it's so much faster and easier to get the grill out and connect the line. My trailer always has propane on it so for me it's a matter of not having to carry more stuff (1lb bottles) and even running out of propane in the middle of cooking.

Attached are two pages from the Owner's Manual for my Thermos Fire+Ice Grill with information for attaching the Grill 2 Go directly to a 20 or 30lb propane tank. The grill is similar (if not identical) to the Grill 2 Go the OP is using. However, I would strongly recommend checking your own Grill 2 Go Owner's Manual for the most current information just in case there have been changes made. I don't think Thermos makes either the Fire+Ice or Grill 2 Go anymore and the Grill 2 Go has been made by one or possibly more manufacturers. Therefore, use the information provided only as a guideline.
