Propane connection on Georgetown 369DS

The quick connect propane connector on the passenger side of coach, Is it connected to the regulator at the tank and do I have to remove the regulator on the grill to use it and use the regulator on the coach.

Yes it's hooked up to the regulator at the tank and you don't have to remove your regulator on the BBQ for the BBQ to work.

I removed ours because it was explained to me at the service department the pressure would be reduced greatly with two regulators in place.

From my experience and understanding, if you leave both regulators in place, you will not have enough gas pressure to effectively grill. I wasn't able to light my old Coleman when connected with 2 regs in line. I couldn't remove the reg on the Coleman, so I used it as an excuse to buy a Weber Q, easily removed the reg and it works great.

You cant run the gas through two regulators. The best option for me was to purchase a grill designed to run on a regulated LP supply (ie.grill does not have a regulator) I got an Olympian 5500 ....expensive, but money well spent. Really nice quality.

Not knowing or seeing your exact setup and equipment I can only go by what I have seen and done.
When I had my Rockwood 5th wheel I had a bbq mount and connection on the side of the rig. The bbq had a regulator on it and all I did was attach the hose and valve to the bbq. Worked for me.
The regulator are set to reduce below 20 psi so two in line won't restrict it much. You still should get no more than 20psi.

propane fill problem

We have a 2016 forester 2219s which sat unused for a year before we bought it.On our first trip,at 1/2 full, the small relief valve would not let the tank vent-no hiss.The guy wouldn't fill it,says it's defective.at 1/4 full next guy ignored the no hiss & put 5 gal in which filled it.Why does this valve not bleed,yet allow 5 gal in? Also I was told I had a 33 gal tank,which makes 5 gal seem too low.Can anyone advise me on this small bleed valve problem? Also I don't know where to post this question as this says I'm replying to a post,thanks

They told me at the Coleman Store their connections were proprietary and there was no way to jack into the motorhome's propane supply. Well turns out you can put the stock regulator in a vise and bust the connection loose, then a simple 1/4" thread (if I remember correctly), a simple search on Amazon for a male quick connect fitting and a trip to Lowes to find the adapters to connect everything and Wala, an easy way to connect about any Coleman grill to your units propane supply.Click image for larger version
