Coleman Perfect Flow Grill Quick Connect

I'm currently trying to mod our Coleman Perfect Flow Grill and I'm not sure about something. I've removed the Coleman regulator and have a plan to deal with their proprietary threads, however...

As I thread the outer sleeve of the connector into the grill, it opens up a spring loaded valve. Is this strictly a safety feature or is it also an orifice where if removed, will affect the flow?

Is it a quick connector on the grill now? It reminds me of my air hose connectors

No... I will be tapping the outer threaded sleeve to implement the male quick connect coupler. I found a discussion that confirms the spring loaded valve is just a safety shut-off so that LP gas doesn't flow when disconnected. My quick disconnect hose will accomplish this.

well I can agree I don't believe it is an orfice but I believe it is a safety valve also so replacing with another quick connect ought to work fine

Well... For anyone wanting to use the Coleman Perfect Flow with the Jayco X213 LP regulator, it doesn't work. I got flame, but not nearly enough to heat anything. Oh well... Back to a direct hookup to the tank using original Coleman regulator.

Thanks... But that wouldn't help. Looks like my grill needs more pressure/volume to work. I was able to remove the Coleman regulator and plumb everything successfully but the pressure isn't enough.

Hmmm, something is not right. The propane tanks and regulator on the trailer have enough volume to run a furnace, refridge, stove (with oven) but for some reason that flow is not enough for your grill? I suspect there is something else going on.
Perhaps the regulator on the grill is special in some way?
Maybe the line running back to the grill is too small?

If anything, I was worried about too much going to the grill. I've got a 10' Camco quick connect hose connected to the back of the trailer where the Jayco factory female quick connect is. It then connects to the male quick connect on the grill. I eliminated the Coleman regulator, as well as the Coleman safety valve. It could be the added length that's an issue but not likely.
