That's what I've been trying to determine. If it's there and Trail Blazer had the extra gas line added because the quick connect didn't fit, there's an easier approach.
Replace the regulator on the grill regulator assembly with a male quick-connect
. The supply hose on the trailer is already low pressure, so the regulator isn't necessary. Connect the grill directly to the quick-connect supply from the trailer.
Buy a Camco 57628 hose with regulator and female quick connect
. That allows use of a standard disposable bottle when away from the trailer. It also allows me to connect to my propane distribution tree
, which isn't regulated.
The above arrangement works well. I know, because I'm using it on my RoadTrip grill. The grill and the inside stove are compatible. We've used both at the same time.
I adapted it from a YouTube video linked below. In that video the user says to remove a spring-loaded valve from the regulator assembly. DON'T. It's a safety feature to prevent free-flowing propane when the regulator tube isn't connected. I left it in mine and it works fine.
