Weber Q 220 to Jayco Quick Connect

Hello, I am wondering if someone can help me out.

I just purchased a Weber Q 220 and I want to connect it to the Quick Connect that is located on the side of my TT. Has anyone done this with success? and if so, how did you do it? Theres a lot of info on the web, but its all a bit confusing so I'm looking for someone that has done successfully this modification. Thanks, Jay!

I did it and then undid it because I thought the BBQ was not making enough flame, turned out it was the same flame when I put the regulator back on, just the way that BBQ works, love it by the way, best BBQ I have ever owned. I have not converted it back again because I am not sure I want to be restricted to the 15' hose I have. Any ways back to converting it, you need to take the regulator off the BBQ because the trailer is already regulating the gas for that outlet. There are a couple screws holding the bracket to the BBQ and then carefully unscrew the regulator off with a pipe wrench or a crescent wrench. I got the adapters that i needed at a BBQ specialty store here in Edmonton called BBQ country, I imagine you have some similar store in your area. I maybe got lucky I had a young parts guy that knew exactly what I wanted to do and picked all the pieces for me. Cost me about $15 for the fittings. Make sure you use the Teflon tape for gas fitting when you are putting it together. Good luck.

Thanks Jeff, I am anxious to do this. I feel if the connector is there it should be used. and I like the location. I've called all over with no help. Theres a propane place about 45 minutes away someone has suggested to me, but the guy that does all the fittings there is only there on weekends. I hope he has the answer! or the fittings.

Did this. Got a hose that plugs into the trailer under frame, then screws into where the 1 pound bottle goes, found out that it takes a little longer to lite, does not get as hot as with the 1 lb bottle, and takes longer to get hot. As far as cooking goes haven't tried that yet. Yes it is going through 2 regulaters. Our next trip is in Sept so will find out then how it workd. Talked to other campers who did the same thing and they said it works for them, they are not going to change out the regulater, so they can still use th 1 lb bottle or the new hose. Ernie

I had the hose made today. The grill got to 525 degrees after 15 minutes on the 1lb bottle and today I tested the new hose and it got to 475 degrees after 15 minutes. I think It will work just fine without removing the regulator.

Heres a link to a sticky that I did for another forum on gas grill and stove quick connects. It contains a lot of information and some photos.I thought I posted this the other day, but it looks like it didn't take. Hope this helps since we see a lot of threads on this subject

Thanks for the good info. Everyone keeps needing to keep up to date of this.

I need to get me some yellow tape and redo all my gas fittings that I have added to the flex lines.

Thanks for the reminder.

Yes I just completed this. I could post some pictures the next time I get the trailer here. I did the following:

1. Remove the regulator from the Weber Q.
2. Bought fittings so that I had a male quick connect on the BBQ
3. Put a female quick connect on the regulator, and a hose that connects to a standard propane tank (in case I want to use the BBQ without the trailer)
4. Purchased the "special rv male adapter" from the RV store. The female end on the trailer is not a standard air hose fitting, you need to purchase the appropriate male fitting from your local RV shop.
5. Made a hose with with a standard female fitting on one end that connects to the male quick connect on the weber Q and put the special RV male end on the other side of the hose to connect to the RV quick connect.
