LP Quick Connect Question

We just got back from our second trip with our new White Hawk 21FBS. This was the first time that we hooked up our BBQ to the LP quick connect. We noticed that the LP flow seemed to be sporadic and at the times the flame would go out completely. We know it isn't a problem with the BBQ since it works fine when hooked up directly to a LP bottle. We arent sure if there might be a problem with the trailer or possibly the quick connect hose going from the trailer to the BBQ. Any insights would be appreciated.

Thanks!!!

I'm sure you'll get plenty of responses, but the reason is that the quick connect on your trailer is already regulated at the tank of your trailer. If you have a regulator on the grill itself (such as is found on a Weber Q series) you're going through 2 regulators and not getting enough pressure for the grill to work properly.

There are many posts here and elsewhere about how to reconfigure your grill to work with the quick connect fitting by removing the included regulator on the grill and replacing it with a quick connect fitting.

Thanks! That makes sense. I will let the DH know.

On a side note, if we were to buy a new BBQ just for the TT, what would you recommend? My DH loves his current grill (Weber Go Anywhere) and probably won't get a new one but just want to give him options.

I imagine you'll get a lot of different opinions on here about that. However, my favorite (and my dad's and my father-in-law's) is the Weber Q series. It's just a great all-around grill, though I've heard many are not happy with the recent redesign. We all use the older 100 series since we rarely cook for more than 2 adults and a couple kids now and then.

My dad and FIL carry a separate "mini" tank to run their grills and lanterns. I carry the 1lb bottles for now since I have a bunch of them lying around, but when they're gone, I'll probably just end up hooking my grill into my main tank on the tongue with a standard hose that I already own. I just don't want to do the mod (remove the regulator and install quick-connect fittings) to my grill because I can see myself wanting to use it for non-RV events like picnics or beach grilling and want to always have the ability to use it wherever whenever. For me, it's just easier this way...

IMHO, you just can't go wrong with a Weber.

I currently use a Weber Q200 but have removed the regulator and made a custom propane hose to utilize the quick connects. We love it and it works great. It wasn't too difficult to remove the regulator but it's dedicated to the camper. Not sure if your Weber Go Anywhere is or not.

Our weber go anywhere is not dedicated to the trailer and I doubt my DH would want to modify it. That is why I was looking for recommendations on a new grill. We do have a 5lb LP tank that we usually hook it up to. So worst case scenario, we continue to use it and not use the LP connect on the trailer.

You might want to take a look at the Sidekick Grill from Outdoors Unlimited. There are several configurations on Camping World's website. Mine came with a trailer side-mount bracket and a stand that can either be used on the trailer side or as a table-top stand. I had my dealer install a bumper mount which has an articulating arm (think TV wall mounting bracket), and two pins that fit into the same sockets on the grill that the stand mounts into. It also came with the quick-connect hose that fits the trailer QC. I've only used it twice (so far), but it cooked some pretty decent burgers & brats.

You can buy a valve (controller) without a regulator, and just keep that with the hose in the trailer. That way you still have the valve/regulator that came with your grill so you can use your grill anywhere else. No need to tear it apart to take the regulator off.

And this hose will have you all set.
