Weber Q w factory quick connect?
 
Hey guys-
I have a Weber Q 200 and am wanting to use it w the oem connection under the camper. I read that the ca,per connection is already low pressure so the regulator on the Weber won't allow it to work?

Has anyone got a fix for this?


Thanks!

There is a sticky note in the campfire cooking section on how to do this. If you are handy, it's a simple mod. You will have to remove the regulator from the weber.

My Bungalow has the bracket to attach the RV Q to it but.............the RV sales man said why would you want to attach a box of fire to your RV?? Makes sense to me. They are handy for sure but potentially dangerous.

I took the regulator off my weber and replaced it with the male quick connect that was on the side kick grill that came with the motorhome. I also bought a 10' quick disconnect hose to bring the grill away from the motorhome.

Does removing the regulator on the Weber Q make it unsafe to use the Q hooked straight to a 20# propane tank on the back porch at the house or somewhere else, since in effect, there is no flow regulator ??

No. Per the dealer, that line is regulated on the camper. You don't need it regulates twice.

I realize the propane line on the MH is regulated, but my question was using the modified Weber grill with JUST a portable propane tank, NOT connected to the MH.

The answer is no. You do not want to use the grill without a regulator. I'm sure you could make a connection with a regulator that would go from the QC to the 20lb tank.

Edit: This would work.

Pressure directly from a propane tank is 100-200 psi.
Pressure to a grill via a low pressure regulator is 6 ounces (10.5 inches water column)
Even pressure via a high pressure regulator can be between 1 and 60 psi.

So emphatically NO. You do not want to hook up your gas grill to an unregulated tank.
Even Tim the Toolman wouldn't do that. :)

But if you want to use your Weber both ways, just do what I did for my Coleman LXE. I have a regulator that I can screw on when using it with bottled propane, and then another attachment without the regulator when running off the low pressure TT quick connect.

At the risk of showing how little I know about propane connections, if I removed the regulator from the grill and ran the quick connect straight from the camper to the grill, how would I adjust the flame?
