Unless you buy a salvage grill like mcfarmall did, you won't have to do anything to the orifices on the burners. These small grills are all designed to run on 11"WC and all of the regulators are going to reduce it down to that. You can simply remove the regulator and replace it with the male QC fitting. I say male because it's easier to manipulate the QC coupling if it's on the hose instead of the grill, but it's really your choice. I think on my Baby Q, the regulator threads were 1/8" NPT and I had to adapt it to the 1/4" threads on the QC male piece. I would recommend against using flex hose to run the line from the low pressure connection to the side of the trailer because of movement and chaffing while the trailer is in motion. I ran copper tubing and secured it to the frame with pipe clamps and had no issues with vibration, plus, you can cut it to the exact length you need and not have to deal with coiling up excess hose. I didn't use any other type of bracket or hanger, but it wouldn't be big deal to fabricate one from sheet metal if yo thought you really needed it. I didn't. You could even fabricate the entire thing out of black pipe if you had the tools to do it, that's what the gas manifold pipe is made of.

The only grills tha I can think of where you might have an issue is the Coleman Road Trip. I havn't looked at one, but I've read that they use proprietary threads and it's tough to match fittings.

I've been working with the service and parts dept. of our Jayco dealer, who have been very helpful, and have the OEM parts ordered. This includes the bracket and shield, 6' flexible hose and quick disconnect w/shutoff valve. They even went to the point of taking pics of a new 2013 to help out. I also emailed Jayco for a schematic of the floor and found their is a metal backer in the floor I can use to attach the bracket. Sounds like it will be 2-3 weeks before I get the parts though.

Also have a Camp Chef Weekender 2 burner stove and quick-disconnect hose ordered.

One last thing, make sure you mix up a dish soap and water solution to check for leaks when you're all done.

The length of the hose is not going to affect pressure. Otherwise, you would never see gas lines run to rear outdoor kitchens and appliances would only work if located in the front of the trailer. The gas manifolds used in trailers are 1/2" black pipe and handle plenty of volume for appliances and outdoor stoves.Run the line to where you are going to need it to be.
Almost every camp stove out there is going to run on low pressure and has a regulator that's easy to remove and replace with a qC fitting. I've read Coleman uses a proprietary thread size in their fittings, but I have not verified that. I know the Webers are standard and easily converted. If you are going to do a lot of outdoor cooking, you will be time and money ahead starting over with a new suitable stove/grill instead of having to monk with an antique stove.

Will definitely check for leaks.

Not sure where the antique stove came from, Camp Chef is a well known brand. I don't believe Weber makes a 2 burner stove, they make grills. Coleman 2 burners are designed to run off 1lb cylinders.
Most of the Camp Chef stoves can be easily set up to run on the low pressure LP system on an RV.
