Propane question?

When I purchased my 2015 3010ds, I had the dealer install a tee in the propane system to allow me to run my grill. My grill has a regulator, and the tee was installed before the regulators for the coach. From what I understand everything should be correct at this point. When I am cooking on the grill, no problems. But when you start one of the burners on the stove, I loose all propane at he grill. Any thoughts?

Your grills regulator needs more gas then the rv's regulator can give it. It just wont work.

His "T" is before the regulator and should be getting full pressure. Grill works fine until he uses the cook top.

You won't be able to cook on both at the same time. It sounds like it's plumbed right.

Just take the regulater off the grille and hook the RV supply line direct with a proper quick connect with a shut off ,as are made for that.Otherwise you will be regulateing the supply twice and it will work,but the burner output will be only about 50%.

edit)just reread the OP,thought you were T ing off the RV supply line under the trailer.If you are tapping in before the RV regulater,then you will need to cut the pressuer down with the grill regulater. Ive never seen it done that way and would not want the unregulated supply line underfoot at the campsite.

He is NOT regulating the gas to the grill twice, the grill line is in front of the main regulator.

If is T is before the regulator that could be an unsafe idea to remove the grills reg.?
