Need Outdoor Grill w/o Regulator

Hello again,

We want to purchase an outdoor propane grill for our camper and to hook it up to a quick connect from the camper supply line.

Our first choice would be a Weber Q, and second, a Coleman Road Trip grill. The problem is that these have built in regulators and the camper gas lines are already regulated, SO . . .

Is there a really nice, small sized, propane grill that is NOT regulated that we might consider? I'm not crazy about the idea of Jerry-Rigging a new grill by removing parts from it.

Thanks again,
Les in Wentzville, MO

You should be able to get fittings that will go on your grill, and a hose with quick couplers to attach to your LP line on the trailer.


Camco has a lot of fittings and hoses.

I have a Weber Q200 and the regulator is removeable. I put the quick disconnect fittings on the grill and connected it to the low pressure fitting on the RV. Works great. My Weber is a few years old and possibly the regulator setup has changed.

Just Googled "RV BBQ" and got a lot of choices in a lot of price ranges. Personally we carry a gas grill but use it very little. Mostly use the campfire. Cant beat the taste of a wood fire and we always have a fire going.

Your regulator on the tanks reduces tank pressure to system line pressure. Each appliance, stove, water heater, furnace, etc has its own regulator which then reduces the line pressure to the specific equipment / operating pressure - sometimes 1/2” water column.

Your camper has 1 regulator the appliance's have control valves not regulators. They all run off the same pressure that is set by the regulator at the tank. That pressure should be no more than 11" water column as measured by a manometer -11" WC = .397003 PSI.

Agreed.

OK, WE GOT IT.
Thanks for your input. After further investigation we have found that many others have faced this same issue and we will do at they have:
We'll get a WeberQ1200, and install the conversion package to replace the weber regulator with a quick connector hose that attaches to the trailer.
Thanks again for all your comments

Does anyone know if the regulator on a black stone grill is removable?

Thanks!

If your talking about the 17" and 22" Blackstone Griddles yes. Just unscrew the knurled connector with the pipe and regulator. Then get the appropriate connector for your quick connect fitting.

I have a Weber Q hooked up to my quick connect outlet on the back of our trailer. See Youtube for easy conversion videos. Love it!!

This is what you need for the Roadtrip Grill to hook into your RV propane system

OR THIS If you already have the Quick Disconnect Hose:

This is what I did:

I also made a custom table to set up the Q on the BBQ mount arm that came with the trailer. Pics of this mod are somewhere on this site.

It is very convenient to be able to use either the propane bottle or hook up to the trailer's propane system. Usually If I'm doing an overnighter and need the grill, it's hooked to a bottle on a picnic or other table onsite. If I'm staying a few days, I'll set up the grill on the bumper table hooked up to the trailer propane.

I have a Blackstone griddle grill, and the regulator is attached to the supplied hose. We simply use the hose that goes to our grill when we attach it to the camper LP. It works great.

You should be able to look closely and determine if the regulator is screwed on with threaded fittings or clamped and not removable. Most seem to be clamped for cheapness sake.

The hose and regulator that came with my Blackstone griddle/grille was too short to be any good anyway, I replaced the hose with a longer one, with quick -connect fittings on both ends, and connected it directly to the fitting provided on my RV, at the outdoor kitchen area.
