Grill connection

I don't know if anyone can help with this but here goes. We have a Rockwood Signature Ultralite 8296SS and it has an option for a grill to connect to the side. We did not get the grill because we have a Baby-Q and I really didn't want to hang a grill on the camper. My problem is that I would like to use the propane hose connection that is on the side of the camper to hook to my Baby-Q but I can not find a hose to complete the connection. The hose on the camper has a female quick-connect and I need a male connection on a hose that I can then thread onto the Baby-Q. I have gone to Camping World, Home Depot, a grill store and Ace but no luck. Any suggestions?

When I was searching around for a longer hose, I got lucky and one of the RV parts/service places made their own hoses and were certified for propane hoses. They made me one pretty quick and long enough to set it on a table instead of hanging it on the side of the camper. I would call around and see who makes custom hoses in your area and see if they have the connections to put on it.

Try Camp Chefs website. I bought an extension hose for my weekender stove from them that would serve your purpose.

X2... My local RV part supply store will also custom make propane hoses as well. If you can find one in your area, I'm sure they will have the appropriate fittings to complete your setup and then you can get the right length to suit your needs.

I currently use the side attached grill that came with our 8281SS. I ordered the accessory connection last season that allows you to use the grill on a table and run it off the smaller style bottle tanks. But I was also considering getting a longer hose so that I run it off the camper tanks such as yourself.

I'm not familiar with a Baby Q but if it uses the little screw on propane tanks-you won't be able to use it on the quick connect on the camper. Reason being the presure at the quick connect has already been regulated and you also have a regulator on the grill(if it uses the small tanks) so you are running the propane through 2 regulators-which will not work.

Further, most TT connections such as yours are low pressure since it is connected to the same line as your stove and refrigerator. You would need to find a grill that is set up for low pressure, such as the RVQ which is designed for that.

this is correct, as far as i know, the Baby-Q will not work with the trailer's low pressure supply. it requires a high pressure source.
only low pressure grills and stoves can use the quick connect line on the trailer.
such as the Sidekick that FR sells or the Camp Chef line.

Thanks

Thanks to all that responded. You have been very helpful, as always. I will just continue to use the little propane tanks and be happy with that. It's not a problem and after all, I am still camping and having fun.
Thanks again, this site is great.

Option two, I went and got a long hose and attach it directly to one of my TT tanks, a little more work setting up than a low pressure connection, but i do not have to haul around those dumb little tanks and it works with any grill that the little tanks screw onto. You can even get a small 10lb propane tank and keep it just for the grill, it will last a lot longer than those expensive little ones.

Time2Tow,
Here's a couple of options...(And I recommend searching for a better price...)

The couplers:
Mr Heater Corp - Propane/Natural Gas Connector Kit w/ Shutoff Valve - Propane Accessories - Camping World

T-Valve for your propane tanks...(Add a hose, or buy the kit with the hose included.)
Mr Heater Corp - Stay A While Tee - Propane Accessories - Camping World

Happy Camping
