Propane quick connect

I am looking for the make of the quick connect on my jayco. I am also looking for a spot I can get a hose made to go from the quick connect to my Colman grill. Does any one know where to get one made.

Any help would be great.

Thanks ahead of time!!!

Jason.

Check with a local LPG supplier for a reference.

I haven't bought one yet but here's one that I found on-line. Don't know how it compares price wise to a local propane distributor

That is a good price. If I purchase one it would be a little shorter. I think the one that came with my rig is 6'.

That's a great price. I bought one from Richardson RV so I could hook up my Coleman grill to the quick connect on my trailer. It cost $42.00 with my discount. I had to return it because the tt has a regulator in it and so does my Coleman BBQ, so with 2 regulators I couldn't get enough fuel to keep the BBQ lite.

I have been told you can't hook up your Coleman or weber to the quick connect from my dealer. Is this true? Something to do with high pressure vs low. Not sure.

In spite of the many existing threads on this subject, it continues to come up on a regular basis. it's very easily done. The dealer is wrong. The regulator can be removed on any grill and fitted with a quick connect that allows it to be used on the low pressure side of your propane system.

Bob, Don and I finally went to a LPG supplier, but didn't have what we needed. He sent us to a pretty large Ace Hardware. There we got the hose, fittings, etc. We got back, and the fitting to the quick connect under the tt would slip out. Don also realized the regulator had some issue with allowing enough propane to pass through to keep flame lit. He did check the link from Karl above. Looked promising, but then the regulator issue came up again.

We have a weber grill. I asked him about taking it off. He said if we did, we wouldn't be able to control the gas flow... (High, medium, low). How do people get around this? I know there are times we want more or less heat. How does one option gas flow work for you? Thanks

Take another look at the picture above, the control is still there for the flow. On the trailer, there's a lever on the port. Be sure that you turn the lever so the collar on the fitting can be depressed, then insert the hose and release the collar. You can then move the lever back to lock it into place.
