Adding a quick connect?

We have a 2014 264BH without a propane quick-connect outlet, and I'd like to add one. I ordered the RV connection hose for our Camp Chef stove, so it's ready to go, but getting the trailer ready has been a problem.

Near the back under the kitchen there is a distribution block where the fridge, oven, furnace, water heater all connect to the main line coming back from the tanks. There is one extra connection on the block, presumably where the quick connect option would be, that has a plug in it.

I assumed it would be a simple matter to order a hose with the fittings on both ends and maybe even a bracket for the far side, but apparently not. I've talked to parts guys at 2 Jayco dealers, a small rv dealer in town, and several propane shops... Nobody had the slightest idea what to do for me.

Has anyone actually done this? (Adding a quick connect to their trailer) is there a part number from Jayco, or something from another manufacturer? I've scoured amazon & google, but haven't found anything.

You can certainly run a hose from that manifold to an appropriate propane QD permanently mounted to a convenient place on your TT frame rail. Other folks on here have done this recently and maybe they can help with sourcing the parts.

That's a simple mod. You can use the unused outlet on the distribution block. If you are familiar with working with copper tubing, that would be my choice since it's going to be run outside and will be exposed to the elements and road debris. Look at one of the existing hoses. If there is a size marked on it, the fitting is going to have the same size threads. (3/8" hose-3/8" NPT threads) You should be able to find a hose that will mate with it if that's how you decide to go. It's not rocket science, you just need to figure out what is required and put it all together.A local propane place will probably be able to help. I can't tell you what parts you are going to need because there are different ways to go about it. Your best bet is to find a knowledgeable guy at your local hardware store. The RV dealership parts guys usually are not much help with projects unless you want to hire them to do it.
