I have had my Weber Baby Q running off my trailer quick disconnect for three years with no issues. I modified the grill myself since no one said it could be done. It works and it is safe, even without the regulator attached to the grill. The trailer regulator does just fine. I can adjust the flame with no issues. This investment has paid for itself 20 times over.

That's an interesting way of doing it. Never thought of that. On my Weber Q, I just used the male quick connect (after removing the regulator) and I haven't looked back since.

So do you guys grill under your awnings? Or do you have a long hose? I want to get a 10 footer or so because I don't want to be close to the trailer or under the awning.

10 ft. is what we use I don't like to be to close to our Trailer. This should work with your portable grills.

I might have missed it, but does anyone have a parts list of what's needed to make this conversion? We just picked up a Q1200, and the disposable bottles around here are around $4 each -- gets kind of expensive since we intend to use the grill a lot.

Look at the campfire cooking section, there is a sticky for conversion. I bought the exact parts listed and worked perfectly.

North,

You'll get a lot of suggestions on different ways to skin this cat but if you want an easy fix, read this post:

p.s. The prices are slightly higher now but not by much

Not sure of this hose work. If you connect to the RV's quick disconnect, that line is already regulated and at a low pressure. I think you would have to remove the regulator from the grill for this hose to work...you cannot have two regulators in-line to get an adequate flame (from what I have read).
