Jayco LP quick connect for grill

Hello All!!! We have a 2016 Jayco 28 BHBE travel trailer. It has a LP quick connect already installed for use with a grill. The fitting that I got from Camping World does not fit,, I can only assume that this is because their fitting is not a MR. Heater fitting like I got from Camping World. Does anyone know which brand it would be? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks to all and HAPPY CAMPING.

I had the same issue...it was easiest to replace the QD on the TT and install a new one, with more standard fittings. I wrote Jayco asking what brand they used, and they wrote back saying I didn't order the grill so didn't get the hose....well duh... I wrote them back thanking them for an answer to a question I never asked. Bottom line what they use is not a standard fitting typically available.

Good Luck

What I did

I was able to buy the male end at the jayco dealer and took it to the local propane dealership where they built the hose, to whatever length you want. I think that cost about $12. The fitting at the rv dealer was probablt almost that too.
My rv came with the bbq but I wanted to modify my bbq to use. Was able to get the correct fittins and a 6' hose.

Wasn't able to find a hose specifically for this, but based on our experience with our pup, I really wanted to keep using our Coleman Road Trip grill.

I decided to buy a T splitter (Camco) that connects to one of your tanks prior to the regulator and about 20 feet of hose with a ThrowAway connector at the other end. We can keep the grill well away from the TT and the awning this way. I don't really like my grill too close to the TT especially with the tenting on a hybrid.

Still looking for an outdoor stove to mount to the side rail like we had on the pup. That will use the QC connection.

I bought the trailer AND male connector from the same Camping World store. Didn't fit!

I was told by a tech that the nose on the new fitting was too long.

Under the heading of "Don't Try This At Home", I ground off 1/4" of the nose of the fitting. Careful Testing shows a leak free connection. I'll be using the setup next year too!

Not 100% sure but I think the quick disconnect fitting used on LP and on natural gas are of differing sizes so you don't connect the wrong appliance to the wrong gas type.


I also think the high pressure and low pressure quick connects are different too. I believe Mr Heater uses high pressure and the fitting on your trailer is probably low pressure.


Here's a little info

I have the same trailer and had the same issue.

If you walk into American Propane; 1509 Exchange Ave, OKC and tell them what you want to do, they will make you what you want.

I gave them $50 for a custom made hose with quick connects. They knew exactly what I needed. They only asked me how long of a hose I wanted.
