How to plug grill into trailer LP???

I have a 2012 32BHDS. It has 2 LP quick connections underneath.

How do I plug a gas grill into that connection? I have a Camp Chef stove, with grill box that I want to cook on while camping.

Those LP quick connections are after the regulator so if you want to use your stove you will have to convert it to the quick connect and not use the regulator that came with your stove. I cant do that with my coleman stove but it would be nice. Camping world has the fittings and the hose to do this but any Propane store or natural gas store will have them as well. good luck hope it works out for you.

joe n az-- If your temp dial is on the regulator on your grill, so you can't remove it you will have tee tap off one of you tanks ahead of the tt regulator. Larry

Those outlets are made for RVQ's they are set up for low pressure propane lines...

I have a Coleman BBQ grill and hooked it up with a quick connect hose, but the TT has a regulator and so does the BBQ so it wouldn't work, I couldn't find a hose that would hook up to the grill without using the regulator. I just buy the small propane bottles and use them, only about $6.00 for 2 bottles.

joe in calif--- You can get the fittings to tee tap at your tt tanks , I got mine at tractor supply. Saves the bother of buying those smaller tanks. Larry

you can buy a connection hose at your local hardware store or RV place. I have the 3 burner Camp Chef, and it is designed to work off the low pressure LP feed you'll get from your quick connect without the need for any additional regulator, and I bought it specifically for this capability. You will not need to add a T at the tanks or anything else, Mine has worked flawlessly for 4 seasons.
Despite being low pressure, it will still crank out 30K BTU per burner, so be prepared to go through an impressive amount of propane. On mine i can boil water from cold in a very few minutes!
Best accessory I ever bought for our trailer, i love cooking outdoors.

joe in az If you don't have a regulator at your stove then do the same thing as phemens did in the previous post. Larry

Camp Chef will not have a regulator at the stove, you'll be fine with a straight connection to the quick connect. As I mentioned, just make sure you have plenty of propane! When I crankd up the stovetop BBQ (another must have), it gets up to 500F pretty quick with 2 burners puming out 60K BTU. I typically go through a 20lb tank a week when dry camping with no furnace use.

I have a little grill that came with the temp dial built into the regulator. I took the regulator/temp dial off. Took the orifice out of the regulator and made a connection to a normal 3/8" gas line. Put a normal gas valve in line and then connect it to a 10' flexible gas line with the quick connect plug on the end of it. I then have another 10' hose with quick connects on it so I can get 20' away from the plug on the side of the camper. I've been using this setup now for over a year and it has worked well for us.
