Propane quick connector missing...

Sorry if this is a dumb question but...

I'm missing the quick connector (female) end that attaches to the the main propane piping on the trailer. The previous owner must have taken it off and capped it.
Is this a standard size quick connector, or will I need to reduce from the pipe size or ??

Next step is adapting the Weber-Q to quick connect. Found info on that pretty easily.

Thanks!!

Kevin

Just grab one at a trailer place (take the cap off and bring it with you if you like.), it is different than a natural gas one for your home bbq.

Your local propane supplier may have them also & usually cheaper.

There are several sizes or types that may or may not work together. As suggested, take the male end to a lp supplier, to compare ends.
When I tried to connect a fellow campers fitting to his new BBQ, it didn't fit. We went to Home Depot and bought a quick connect fitting with both ends.
Keep in mind, the black pipe is npt ( national pipe thread) fittings and a reducer from 1/2" to 3/8" is pretty common.
I also added an in-line ball valve prior to the quick connect, to ensure a good seal when not in use.
