Weber Grill

In the market for a grill for the Berk. Looking at the Weber 54060001 Q2200 Liquid Propane Grill. They offer a 6' propane hose. I'm thinking that it should be closer to 12' to get it away from the coach and towards the outer edge of the awning. Thoughts from some of you that have one.

I have 12' and I wish it was longer. I might buy a 20'.

I use the Q2200 and the 6' hose. I have a separate 20lbs tank that I move with the grill, allowing me to put it anywhere I want.

You may know this, but if you come off the low pressure hose on the coach, you need to remove the pressure regulator on the Weber and add a new fitting. I decided not to go into my TT plumbing for the flexibility.

I like the grill very much, and the collapsible rolling cart. Although, I wish the cart were more stable. If it were, I'd wish the setup was lighter...can't win.

Are you planning on connecting you up to the low pressure connect in the bay?
If you are I have a write-up on how to convert a Q100 to low pressure.
I have a 12 foot hose and it works ok. I don't really see a need to get it out from under the awning.

I have had the Q100 for some time now and really like it. It is an older model and just a little smaller than the 2200. I added the flip out side wings after I purchased it. As has been stated, you will need to remove the regulator from the grill and get an adapter so that you can attach a hose to the grill. It would need a male quick connect fitting on the other end so that you can use the gas 'tap' on the coach. I too have about a 15' length of hose so that the grill can be away from the coach and out from under the awning. I felt that when grilling it is best to get be out from under the awning so that the smoke doesn't accumulate under it. I had my hose made up at a local outdoor store.

Just a reminder that if you are planning to run off of the MH gas nipple, you will need to remove the regulator for the BBQ.

I also run a propane fire pit from the same location

So high pressure / low pressure if I go from the quick disconnect in the passenger bay compartment and remove the regulator from the Weber I should be good to grill ?
BTW Dan I viewed your thread and looks good, think I'll do the same just in case I have the need to use a tank.
