Trying to connect an RVQ directly to a propane tank
We're camping in a tight spot on Flathead Lake, MT right now. The only flat spot on the site saw a tree right beside the trailer where the RVQ attaches. So, I headed into Polson, MT with the idea of getting a hose with regulator so that I could hook up the RVQ directly to my 20lb propane tank at a table across the site. Easy enough, right? I'm afraid not. Working with George and the great guys at Polson BBQ & Fireplace, we had a hose with the tank attachment, screwed into the tank, through a regulator, then 4' of LP hose to a female 1/2" quick connect which was plugged into the RVQ. No gas would flow! If we detached the RVQ, we could get gas to flow through the hose. And the RVQ works fine if hooked to the trailer. They've never seen anything like it. Any ideas?
PS - I searched for other threads on this topic, but most talked abour extending the hose from the trailer. The one thread I tried to reply to gave me an error saying it was a year old & I couldn't reply to it.
