Drilled them all out last year, made it a little better but no good enough for my liking.

You will find that the Weber Q will burn least hot when connected to a 20lb propane bottle, hotter when using a 1lb bottle and hottest when you remove the regulator, connect it to your RV and adjust your RV's regulator up to max water column for your furnace, water heater, stove and refrigerator.

My experience with temperatures, with ambient temperature being in the fifties is:

20# bottle, max 400 degrees
1# bottle, max 500 degrees
Hooked up to RV as described, buries the temp gauge above 600 degrees.

PS: I am a Master Plumber and Gasfitter, so I know how to play with these sorts of things.

I still have my Weber Q, you mean I can take the regulator off. I have a hose that I have on one grill that came with the regulator on the hose. Could I use that? I was using my Weber but it would not get hot enough. Also I found out only a certain hose would work on the Weber, I think there is a low pressure hose and a high pressure hose for a 20lb tank, one of them will not work with the Weber.

I've tried every trick I could find online and from a specialty store in Mass called the BBQ Barn and nothing has worked well enough for me. Ran it on the camper line without the regulator purchased a different regulator bought the special hose from Webber. I have also drilled the holes out and bought a small 10 lbs tank. I guess I am just spoiled by my Webber Genesis at home. Maybe I can be one of those guys who halls his big gas grill in the back of the truck to go camping!

Weber q2200. Love it and it's a perfect fit for bathroom floor storage when traveling.

Update...I Went with the Weber Q2200. I plumbed it into the RV propane supply and so far I love it. I've only used it once as I just finished the install yesterday but it gets up to temp quickly, and and is large enough to suit our needs. Its actually a lil bigger than I anticipated. For the ones that complained about temp, this little booger will peg the 600f temp gauge in about 10 minutes, give or take a few.
