Has anyone had a problem with the BBQ hose being too short? Mine is so I turned the BBQ around so the hose would not be stretched to capacity which caused a problem.

Weber Q w factory quick connect?

I have a Coleman nxt 200 grill. I decided that it's easier to bring a 20# propane bottle and an adapter hose for the grill rather than remove the regulator and do the modifications. That way I can still use the little bottles if I need to.

Apologies for taking this thread further off the Weber topic. But in response to the above, I've got a Coleman LXE and I have a regulator that I can screw on and use the small bottles when I need my grill farther than about 10 feet away from my trailer, or I can screw on my modified connector where I can use the quick connect to the low pressure gas line when I want to be closer to the trailer.. Best of both worlds.

Make sure you get the right size quick connect... There are 1/4" (Mine on a 23RB), 3/8" and 1/2". You won't find 1/4" or 3/8" at home depot or lowe's.... I've spent the last day and a half trying to track down the proper hose configuration for my 23RB female quick connect to a new stainless steel table top grill...

I bought mine online. Even my local farm and industrial supply store didn't have them, and from what I read using compressed air fittings is a huge no-no. So it has to be the proper brass fittings.

Of course, once I got everything all set up, I had to go into a nearby RV dealer for something else, and they had a bunch of the proper quick connect fittings for about the same price as I paid online. Doh!

My local Jayco dealer carries all the correct QC connectors.

My two cents...

Our camper is just a little guy with only one 30 Lb tank attached to it. I carry a 20 lb tank in my truck and set it up next to the camper to fuel both my Weber Q and a two burner stove for outdoor cooking. This way I can use it as a backup if the 30 lb tank runs out.

To hook up to the stove and grill I use a tee and hoses from Walmart, all high pressure, the stove and grill stay intact with their own regulators.

I should note that more than once I've left the Weber Q running all day after using it to make toast for breakfast and then going out on the boat. It's nice to know I'm not wiping out my main tank when I do this. Perhaps someday I'll learn...

I did the mod on mine because....well it's a mod!

.....I seldom use the onboard lp for cooking rather prefer the 10lb tank and regulator combo with the qc connector.

I do have the hose but prefer to save it for a backup if I run low on the separate tank.

I decided to use my grill with the small bottles of gas so I figure "why waste a good thing"? I rigged up a cable system from an old choke carburetor (remember those manual chokes) and added a spark plug wired to a 12v momentary switch at the gas quick connect outlet. It comes in handy as a flame thrower when someone follows to close behind while towing.

EDIT: I just noticed this is a two year old question - so I may have previously contributed my two cents worth.

With every camp spot I've been on I've not wanted the grill up close to the 5th; meaning it would require a long propane line for us to trip on in the dark.

I simply purchased the Weber Q adapter line to run off a spare 20# tank. Now, in a pinch, I can use that to get me thru the night - if/when I was to run out of propane.

Exactly what I did but my Q2200 barely has a flame when using the 12' hose.
I also fixed the original regulator with a QC fitting so I could use either. When using the small bottle and regulator connected it's fine. If I put the extension hose between the bottle and regulator and the Weber the flame is real small. Same if I tie into the camper, a very small flame.

The hose or the multiple fittings are restricting the flow I believe.

Put it all together. I couldn't find any yellow teflon tape, so I used the white stuff.



I turned it all on and tested for leaks. There were none so I fired up the grill, and it seems to be working okay. Like I said, use of the elbow is personal preference. A straight 1/4" coupler would work just fine too. The big expense was the hose, since the brass fittings were only a few bucks each. I hope this helps someone who might be wondering how to do this themselves. Thanks for the advice everyone.

Just a quick note, as I had the same issur : try turning on propane very slowly w grill off and leaving it for a couple minutes. I got that tip from some since the hose needed pressure to build up in the hose before use. It’s works great after that!

That quick disconnect is cool, we do not have that!So the 6' hose is never unhooked from the grill.Kinda annoying when storing. Thanks

I have the same set up and stopped using it attached to the tt.doesnt make a lot of sense.i replaced the rvq because it was light gauge junk steel.and my bracket is under the awning which may seem convenient but the smoke and residue from cooking under the awning not to mention directly under the main window on that side is nor well thought out.
