i don't think you understand. the OP has a high-pressure Coleman Roadtrip grill that they want ot hookup to the trailer's low-pressure propane pigtail line.
what they'll have to do is hook directly to the propane tanks or do some hardware changes to their Coleman grill for it to work on low-pressure.

Camping World & RV dealers probably, Amazon sell an Extend A Flow kit that allows you to use most gas grill with the RV system,.

The "T" connection goes in before the RVs regulator ( at the bottle) so you can use the grills original regulator . I have had for several years & was by Marshall Brass 538-00 don't know if some other company may be selling them also . Our grill is a red Coleman Road Trip.

The kit comes with a T & the line needed to screw it the small bottles threads. Been using this set up for many years........... (A little pricey as I recall) Had one for our 88 Terry also.....................

Good tip for sure, but I think the OP already has LP plumbed into the factory location for his "RV BBQ" but wants to modify his Coleman Roadtrip to match the RV's quick disconnect.

Sunseeker 3010DSF main propane to grill?

Just bought a 3010DSF and am curious if there is a way to attach a portable gas grill to the main tank? I can ask the dealer but thought that this forum would be a better place to start hoping that someone out there could offer a viable solution.

Thanks

Is it low pressure? There should be a hookup for a low pressure grill on the right side under the trailer. I just plug in my hose, hang my grill on the side of the trailer, and light 'er up...

If the MH was ordered with the BBQ grill option, then there is a small door just to the rear of the main tank with a quick connector inside for a grill. Not sure how hard it would be to add that if it wasn't an option from the factory.

It did not come from the factory with an outside hookup so I was curious if there is a way to hook up to the main propane tank on the side of the MH. If not I may have to go the 10lb bottle route.

Thanks for your response since I know this is an old thread.

I'm guessing there is a T in the line either at the stove or the furnace that goes to a quick connect for the grill. Can't see it without removing some of the underbelly. If you could get to the gas line, you could have a T installed just under the MH with a connector (with shut off). Since it is a gas line, I would have a professional do it. Likely any good RV shop could handle it. We use the grill often and I like the convenience of the connection to the main tank. Just remember, if your grill wasn't set up for this kind of connection, you may have to modify it a little. Most connected to a portable tank have a regulator somewhere in the connection. If connected to the main tank, there is already a regulator in the line after the tank--don't want another one at the grill.

Thanks for the info! I think at this point since I haven't taken delivery yet I will get with the dealer and see what they have to say. Great advice and I appreciate the response!
