Propane grille connection

I am currently using 1lb propane bottles with my portable no name grille but would like to use the TT quick connect because it would definitely be cheaper than purchasing 1lb bottles every camping trip. The grille has a regulator on it and it is my understanding the TT propane is already regulated, so just getting a hose to connect to my grille won't work. Is there a hose out there that can go from the TT quick connect directly to my grille? I've attached a pic to show what I currently have. Thanks for any advice.

You might want to look into something like the Camco Low Pressure Conversion Kit:

https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories.../CAM57638.html

It comes with the hose and the control knob, and it looks like it will thread right into the burner orifice. It says it's for the Olympian 4100 grill, but I think those threaded fittings are universal.

I have a Weber Q for camping trips, but did not want to remove the regulator on the grill as I use the Q at the house as well so I got a small 1 gal tank from CW and it lasts all season. I grill alot when camping, usually 80%+ so... Just an option, the tank does not weight much or take up much room, so might consider that.

I modified mine years ago to use the lp on my rig but I came across a small propane tank. I just use that with a regulator and if I ever need it, it will work on the RV supply in a pinch.

I modified both my Coleman Roadtrip grill and my Blackstone griddle to work off my trailers quick connect. In both cases it was necessary to delete the regulators from the portables and remove pieces from them which made it a permanent modification unless you purchased replacement regulators.

The convenience of using the RV tanks vs. carrying additional propane is well worth it to me...

I had the same thought until I realised I had other propane appliances at home. Now I have a 20lb tank with a regulator and a quick connect at home too. I can quick connect cookers, fire pits, patio heaters, and space heaters to my TT when on the road, or to the 20lb tank at home. No more little expensive bottles, and I've got a simple connection for anything that needs propane (and a misc pile of un-used regulators).

I'm afraid to try and modify the regulator by removing pieces from it. I was hoping there might be a hose out there already with a quick connect that goes to the TT connection, and the other end similar to the outlet port of my grilles current regulator. Hard to see in the pic, but it is simply a keyed male fitting that just slides into the grilles female burner tube.

You have to modify the regulator because the TT propane supply is already regulated. If you don't remove the regulator from the grill you are modifying it will be double regulated and most likely won't light or if it does won't stay lit...

My problem is that the hose I purchased does not go into the quick connect under the TT. It is a hose that is supposed to replace the disposable bottle.

You need more than just a hose for the conversion . There are several fittings and then the hose you want is a quick connect style. Most of the fittings are available from a hardware or plumbing supply house.
