Using Regular 1lb Propane Canister Grill with Quick Connect

I'm wondering if I can use my regular canister grill with the quick connect port on my 26BH using

something like this:

http://www.rvpartscountry.com/QuickC...tle72Hose.html

Anyone ever try this?

Also is it safe to run a grill under the awning? The place where the grill connects to the TT is under the awning. I suppose the alternative is to just buy a longer hose and set it up away from the TT..

Thanks,
Dan

It looks like it would work. Six feet is not very long though. I see they also have a 10 footer. I'd go with that one!

I had one made to go from my quick connect to my weber Q. It worked but because the quick connect is already regulated and then the weber q has a regulator as well, it never got hot enough. I might look into removing the regulator on my Q this spring, or use a T off one of the propane tanks.

I have an adjustable regulator that screws onto the propane canister.. I assume if I set it to "hi" it just allows the propane to flow through unregulated.. Or does it still regulate the pressure even on "hi"?

I removed the regulator from my Q and had a 12' hose made at a local propane store. The hose is permanently attached to the grill.

That is a heat control just like the knobs on the gas stove at home. Regulators are preset to keep the pressure at 11"WC and are not adjustable. If you want to use the grill on the trailer's disconnect, you will have to remove the regulator and rig the stove with a quick connect. Go over to keystonerv.org and look in the mods forum. I wrote a detailed sticky on this topic including closeup photos. It will tell you what you need to do.

I have a small Quisinart grill and it works just fine on the trailer's propane connected. I see little difference than when using the canisters.

Are you connected directly to the propane bottle or to the quick connect port?
