Rear bumper propane outlet

Hi all,

I recently bought a JayFlight 27BHS travel trailer. Is the rear bumper propane outlet high pressure straight from the propane tank manifold or low pressure? I kind of assume it is LP only because my previous Dutchmen TT had a LP port in the same place. So if it is LP what good is it? BBQ grills have their own pressure regulator that is built in and you can't put two LP regulators in the same feed. Obviously if you have a HP appliance it certainly won't work either. So again, what the heck good is it? I would like to run a BBQ grill off it but HOW?

Dale

Remove the regulator from the grille and run it directly from the low pressure line. Many people do it with Weber Q grilles. Those are more difficult because the regulator is mounted to the control valve. If you have one with the regulator at the end of the hose it should be much easier to accomplish.

Follow the line back to the tanks and check if it goes trough the regulator or not.
It is most likely low pressure. You can buy a rv BBQ with no regulator, or remove the regulator from the BBQ of your choice.
It is not always that easy as I had to find a fitting to go from the compression fittings in mine to regular propane line brass fittings.

You can also use it for a propane firepit.

I have a Weber grill with the regulator removed that I run off of this outlet, and a propane fire pit that I recently modded to do the same. The trailer's propane system is regulated to 11" WC pressure so anything that requires that can most likely be modded to work.

I wanted to use the Flemming Side Kick grill as they make bumper swing out brackets. I'll have to go see if grill's controller and regulator can be separated.

What fitting do you Weber Q users screw into the control knob to connect with the hose?

If you deem removing two screws, unscrewing the regulator and screwing in an adapter fitting and a Quick Connect fitting difficult, then I agree.

It really is not difficult. The hardest part of it was unscrewing the regulator, that sucker was on there tight!! Easy mod and glad I did it.

And to the OP, likely Low Pressure.

Yes, for this reason. I know it is not impossible though. I've had mine apart.
