No. Quick connect is part of the grill options. (Option reads "Exterior Grill W/ Quick connect")

It may be easier for the customer than it is for us. We have to retest all the gas lines which means disconnecting a bunch of stuff. Big pain for the factory to do after the fact (so we don't). On this forum you'll find lots of end users that have done it.

Factory Installed BBQ Option Great!

On our 2015 2500 TSF we got the Factory option on the BBQ grill (Aussie) with the quick disconnect and so glad we did. Forest River did such a clean job. The grill connect on the rig has it own little access door. But... I was wondering how it was put in? Is this able to be used both ways (like a Extend-a-valve). How are the gas lines installed? Are they before or after the regulator. Will I still have to purchase and install a separate Extend-a-valve for my rig. All the Extend-a-valves I've seen seem to come as a grill & tank combination.

Ordered the Aussie with my Cadet. Actually like it better than my Weber. Very light weight and cooks fast. The stand is light and very convenient. Will definitely get another one when this one burns out.

We have the little brother to this grill but with the same stand and bracket option for cooking on the side of the TT.
Love the stand. Works really well when we want to have the grill stand alone on a picnic table or even on the ground. Occasionally we have found it convenient to us the bracket on the side of the TT. The stand converts to the bracket mounting easily and provide plenty of stand off to keep the grill comfortably away from the side of the camper. We suggest if this grill has the option, get the adaptor to use the 1lb propane bottles for added flexibility. That way you're not "tied" to the TT or the tank.

I just picked up a Weber Q1200 and a 6' adapter hose. The grill fits in my storage compartment with plenty of room to spare. Thanks for all the advice it is perfect, and exactly what we were wanting.

Another grill to consider is the Cuisinart CGG 200

We have been using this grill in our Solera since April and we absolutely love it. Very solid and it fits perfectly in the Solera 24R rear side storage area. I'm currently using the disposable green propane canisters but plan on running a T off the propane tank when we upgrade to a 20 gal. tank when they become available from the factory.
