Gas line - Regulated?

Our 26bh has a gas line at the rear of the unit that can be hooked up to a gas appliace such as BBQ.
Does anyone know if its a regulated line or not?
We were planning on hooking up a Weber 220 to it. I havent purchase the grill yet but have heard that its a good unit.

It is a low pressure line. It is not designed to be connected to a grill that needs high pressure propane.

It's a regulated line off your trailer's regulator so you would have to remove the one that is on the Grill then it should work just fine.

This

I have a camp chef. And a 2013 26bh. As long as you hook up a hose with no regulator it will work fine.

There is an adapter that increases the flow back to normal pressure for the weber grill. Don't know the number but check with your local propane dealer

I have tried everything except what onebigtrk recommends. Nothing worked to full capacity that the weber 220 can put out. I ended up buying an extra tank with a propane tree and I can run my lantern, weber 220, and 40k btu 2 burner stove at the same time. I'm very happy with my setup.

Thank you for the suggestions and information. I have also read that the Weber is better off with a separate tank. I was trying to shed some weight and baggage but I think I will stick to the small tank. I don't want to risk problems by screwing around with the regulator etc.

I have both a Q200 and Q220...Q220 stays at home with weber adapter hose and 20# bottles. The Q200 stays in the TT, I just use the coleman 1# cans. I have brought the extra 20# with tee and hoses, but I realize I just prefer the 1# cans. I find them on sale a couple times a year for <$2 can and buy 10-15 of them. In addition to the Q200, we have a couple lanterns and a stove that all run on them. It's more expensive sure, but so much easier for me to just keep them stocked in the TT rather than worry about moving another 20# bottle between home and the TT.

By the way, why the Q220 for camping? Do you do a lot of whole chickens or large roasts? I found the taller dome on the Q220 to be a PIA when storing, that's how I ended up with both.

I wasn't aware of the taller dome between the two models. I thought that they were similar but my understanding is that the q220 was hotter. I will consider that aspect of it. I have a 7lb bottle that I use for my cuisinart grill now. Better than smaller 1lb bottle and much less room and weight than 20lb.

Q220 is exactly the same as a Q200 except...

1) taller dome
2) thermostat in dome
3) 200 has mechanical igniter, 220 electric igniter

Both of mine can achieve 500+ as measured with a maverick et73 in about 10-12 min.

Can't go wrong with a weber, I have 7 of them; 2 Gassers, 3 kettles and 2 smokey mountains.
