Gas Grill for TT

Hello! I was reading some threads about converting our 12-yr old Coleman gas grill to be used with our TT quick-connect system. It seems like I may not be able to do this due to non-compatible parts. Right now we do cook in the the TT but like to cook outdoors when we can, the weather is nice, and we're cooking smelly foods like bacon etc. We're tired of hauling around an additional propane tank and think it would be easier to use the TT's quick-connect outdoor hook-up. Seeing as how we might not be able to convert the Coleman, I thought I'd ask everyone what they might suggest in terms of a new grill. Suggestions? THANKS!

Good news. There are only 2 standards to worry about with propane appliances.

High or low pressure.

High is right off the tank and runs at about 150 PSI @ 68*F.

Low is after the regulator and runs at a fixed setting of 11 inches Water Column (just under 1/2 of one PSI).

If your current grill uses a regulator, you can disconnect it and plumb the hose to the TT's quick disconnect. Using appropriate fittings and sealants.

If your current grill ties directly to a tank and the valve does the function of the regulator, you need a new grill or tap in between the tank and the TT's regulator with a long hose designed for the higher pressure.

It's not hard, but you have to be sure of what you are doing.

Costco sells a stainless table top grill for a hundred bucks that is small enough for easy storage yet has a fairly large grilling area. I removed the hose and regulator from this grill and now connect it to a quick disconnect on the RV. Had a 15' hose made at a propane store.

You may well be able to connect your Coleman to the quick connect with a few modifications. I think I paid a total of about $20 for the hose and the fittings.
See the Youtube video here that shows you how to do it for an LXE grill. Yours might need slightly different parts.

I have this grill: http://www.amazon.com/Portable-Stain.../dp/B00AD945ZO

And then bought this hose: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And it works perfect.

Thanks for the recommendation.

This is the same grill we have had for 7 years. It is time to replace it but it had a lot of use. We bought it at Costco for $99.00. I had a 15' hose with a quick disconnect made and it is really handy to have the extra length.
