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. Itís 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.

Just try it and see
