Where is the regulator for the grill? I can't tell, in the pictures. Does the 1-pound bottle screw directly into it?

Does your trailer have a quick-connect hose but you added a different one to get high pressure, rather than the low pressure supplied by the quick-connect?

Have a look at the tee off the tank, high pressure.

Now that I'm reading this on my laptop, not on my phone, I can see it's providing high pressure. Does the trailer have a low-pressure quick-connect gas hose on the awning side, as many do?

Yes it is providing high pressure from the on board tank to the grill. At the grill, there is a regulator where the one pound bottle screws into. The line from the onboard tank screws in there.

The vapor outlet valve on Class C propane tanks are on the side. They have an internal tube that takes vapor from the top of the tank.


The original poster may have a problem with the excess flow valve. It's part of the vapor outlet. It shuts off flow if the flow is above a certain rate. This is intended to shut off the gas if a line breaks.


Here's a cut from the Manchester Tank RV web page:

I will take to the dealer as the unit is still under warranty.

[I]I would say that the most likely problem here is the regulator within the gas grill. Many gas grills that directly use the small gas cylinder have rather poor regulators. My thought is that the gas grill regulator is sensing the pressure drop and shutting off the propane flow. I would try a different grill ideally one with a large regulator built into the gas line of the grill before taking this to the dealer. If the problem turns out to be the added gas grill you may be charged by the dealer for the trouble shooting since the grill is not part of the coach and therefor not covered by the warranty. I]

The 2013 3010DS came with an external hook up for the grill. Did they not put it in the newer model?
