I have been looking for a quick-connect LP hose that fits my outlet and will fit to my grill, which takes a 1 lb disposableable bottle.I would like a hose that is at least 6 ft long (preferablly longer) just to be able to go to the far end of a picnic table and feel safe aboutthe 5'ver.Cant find one or anything that will work, what have others done? Does anyone use the LP quick-connect?

I can see one problem. The grill wants hi pressure propane from a bottle. The quick disconnect is low pressure, IE it's downstream of the regulator. If your grill has the flame control on the regulator it won't work. If the flame control is downstream from the regulator then you could remove the regulator and hook up to the quick disconnect.

Clif, I was thinking that the regulator may still work it dosent know what presssure it may be seeing from a bottle, and has to adjust for all--even when the bottle is almost empty and as lower pressure. I was hoping it would still work--seeing the low pressure that it needs to work and let it pass thru. Thanks for the input, may need to look into it before spending $$ for a hose connection.

I found my quick connect to be very lousy. the first time I twisted the valve, the handle ended up in my hand, I swapped it for a natural gas bbq quick connect. I attached a 10ft hose to my bbq and had steaks that night. I have a new valve and quick connect thats much easier to work with and worry free.

I spent hours trying to figure out which parts to get and I finally gave up on using the quick connect. It is on the low side of the regulator, and I think it's not going to work through another regulator.

For next season I'll get one of those Coleman distribution trees and carry an extra 20lb tank.

If your grill has the flame control on the grill and after the regulator it should work just fine if you eliminate the regulator. I have one grill that the little bottle connector, regulator, and flame control are one unit. It won't work. I have another with the individual burner controls on the grill and a pigtail that goes to the regulator which mounts on the 20lb tank. It will work just fine if I take the regulator out of line.



Theoritically anyway.

I bought the fittings at an RV shop and had a 12 foot hose made up. I removed the regulator on my Weber Q grill and it works perfect. I think the cost was around $70.00

Avvidclif, and others thanks for the input--exactaly the infoI was looking for. Both my grill and my griddle have the bottle connection--flame control and regulator all as one unit. I guess I'll have to lookfor other options. Sounds like I may be stuck buying and carring around 1lb bottles for the time being.



Thanks

You could look into buying a 5 lb., or 11 lb. tank and adapter hose. I carry an 11 lb. just for my grill. Got it and the hose at Lowe's. Tank stores in tool box in truck bed.

I went through this same exact problem, I couldn't figure out why it was so hard to find the right products, I was trying to eliminate carrying the small bottles of propane. I ended up changing the regulator on the grill with one that eliminates the pressure regulator since the supply line from the coach is already low pressure, then simply tied two quick disconnect hoses together to obtain a 6 ft long hose and it works great. Found everything on Amazon from Camco if I remember correctly. I can look for part numbers if you need more info.
