Another option

Another option is to install a hose about, say, 18" longer than the current one and put a 270-degree loop in it. It will be able to flex if there's movement between the manifold and the outlet.

That would be my preference.

This is the route I'll go except I don't need to install a longer hose. The way everything sits I can just do a 180 as it will relieve the strain causing the kink and allow the hose to be routed up into the space between belly cover and floor. Plenty of excess hose when Bbq is hooked up.

Thanks

You have to get a kit to remove this regulator from the stand alone BBQ for it to work with your trailer. I did mine and installed a quick connect fitting on the BBQ itself. This way it worked with the trailer and I hooked up a quick connect unit to the regulator so if I needed to use the BBQ off the trailer it would connect back up again easily.

Is this a low or high psi grille?
If low psi grille connect grille to camper and open gas valves and burner valve. This allows air to purge from hose. Give it a minute to dilute gas vapor! Now try to lite again, normal procedure.
If a regulator is on grille, modify grille or possible run a high psi line.....
