Quick connect grill issue

We setup our outdoor grill to attach to our quick connect system. With the grill lit, we get about 75% flame compared to it attached to a dedicated propane source, which is ok. As soon as we light up the indoor stove top burners, both the outdoor and indoor burners barely produce a flame. We are using a Coleman Roadtrip grill, and our trailer is 2 years old. Any suggestions?

You may want to check if your Coleman grill has a regulator on it or not. The gas from your RV connection is low pressure and doesn't need a regulator. Connecting the already-low pressure hose to a grill with high pressure regulator makes things worse. If you have a regulator on your Coleman, it must be removed and then the grill needs to be modified to accept the low pressure gas from your trailer. There are several You Tube videos available online.

Once you have modified your grill, you will not be able to use the portable propane bottles--as they contain high pressure.

I thought the RoadTrip was designed to use with disposable propane bottles. How are you connecting it the your TT?

My first thought reading this is the regulator at the propane bottles is defective.. or out of adjustment...
The second thought would be if you have a regulator on the grill, which is not needed on that line, could be causing a problem.

First thought is your regular is not working right. May need to have some testing done to determine why.
Still don't see how the roadtrip works with twice regulated propane.

I just converted my Weber Q200 to work on the camper LP supply or a tank/regulator combo with a quick disconnect fitting. Works fine. I read about ways to do it for a while but it actually took about 15 minutes.

You are correct, the Coleman Roadtrip is out of the box intended to use the disposable bottles. However, with Coleman's optional 5' hose and adapter you can use the included regulator and connect directly to a high pressure LP tank.

But it sounded like the OP is connecting this to his quick connect which is likely the factory installed LOW pressure line near the rear of the trailer. You can do that with a Coleman, but you have to remove the regulator on the grill and then modify the grill with some custom parts (which can be ordered online or purchased at a grill or hardware store).

I am not sure why the OP is having propane issues inside his travel trailer.

Here's a Youtube video that explains how to modify the Coleman grill:

I failed to include in my original post that the regulator has already been removed, after watching a couple of YouTube videos on how to do so. I would understand why the outdoor grill may have issues, but that doesn't explain why it would greatly affect the flow going to the indoor stove top burners. As soon as I burn off the outdoor grill, normal flow is restored.

You have to purchase some adapters to modify the connection. See video in a previous post.

It also works with a low pressure connection, supposedly.
