Thanks!
I took a bit of a different approach to this problem. Instead of using disposable propane cylinders and knowing the connection on my camper is low pressure. I purchased a 5lb propane cylinder and
Weber Adapter Hose for Q-Series & Gas Go-Anywhere Grills 4-Feet Long hose. The 5lb cylinder lasts a lot longer than the disposable ones. I am going on my second season in this tank since I filled it.

I removed the regulator from my weber Q 2200. Installed a quick connect with a bushing on the weber. Bought a 24 foot hose And connected to the quick connect under the trailer.
This way depending on which way the wind is blowing and keeping the grill further away from the camper I feel safer. The weber Q 2200 cooks amazingly fast. If it was Easy to post pictures I would post pictures of the connections on the Weber that I modified

Amazon kit - quick and easy. I added a Y connector and use my stove at the same time and both get enough gas

My Jayco TT came with a cheap grill but I love the bumper mount. It's the type that swings out and the grill sits on 2 posts. That puts it about 18" from the trailer. Anyone got any ideas how to make a good grill work on that mount?

perfect example of different strokes for different folks. I yanked that thing off my bumper and sold the whole 'kit' on craigslist for near what they cost new. Bought a Coleman three burner and a 5 lb propane tank for less money and far less hassle than figuring out hookups, paying crazy RV supplier prices for fixes to making changes etc. The tank was less than the cost of those conversion kits for the Webers, Colemans, and Blackstones that have a regulator already.

I converted my Q for less than 15.00 and got the Blackstone fitting for around 12.00 all from Amazon. Hose came with the RV. No tank which costs approx 60.00 at Home Depot or Amazon or buying from specialty stores required.

Enjoy.

Ah, but see, I don't need to be near my trailer to use it. Which is exactly how I like it. We use our Coleman on the back porch at home, at family picnics etc. Like I said, different strokes for different folks......

We tried our capital grill one time. It is on a pull out drawer in our outside kitchen. Just about set our brand new. Used 1 time camper on fire. Got home. Pulled grill out and converted the pull out grill to a drawer with butch block removable top.

Put my fold up propane grill back in camper and plan on keeping fire at least 10 feet away.

Fire bad.

I ordered one of these. I haven't received it yet so I can't confirm that it fits but I'm pretty sure it will work. You unscrew and remove your regulator from your grill and replace it with the included valve assembly. The quick connect hose plugs into your gas outlet. Threads for the valve assembly are pretty much standard. There are different quick connect valves. I'm hoping the included plug fits.

What are you converting that requires a different valve? That valve is not needed if you are converting a Weber Q or a Blackstone.

This year my Weber Q 1200 does not work well hooked up with the quick connect to the rear quick connect on the camper I wanted up changing the hose to a seven footer and getting a 20 pounder. Not really getting any good flow Out of the rear trailer quick connect.

Had that problem with my 3yo Jayco changed the quick connect on the trailer. Problem solved. I use a Y connector and use my stove and grill at the same time with no problem

Good catch. I always tell the kids to make sure they put the rubber plug back in when they're done.

And welcome to JOF from SW Michigan. Happy camping!

Yes, but rather than reinstall the Weber regulator at the Weber control knob, you can make an adapter that looks like the arrangement for your grill at home.

Regulator and hose with built in female quick-connect adapter. https://smile.amazon.com/DOZYANT-Reg...7577368&sr=8-8

You could also build your own, but this is a turnkey solution that makes life very easy when switching from the low-pressure connection at the RV to a "high-pressure" connection at a 20# propane tank.

This makes using the RV's onboard propane a significant convenience when camping, and it enables you to use your pricey Weber grill anywhere else with a free-standing propane tank. Worth the investment.
