I converted my Coleman Road Trip to use the quick connect on TT. I bought three items to do this what nbenn3 did and it cost about $40. Here is a video on how it is done:


The first is a 90 degree elbow:

Next is the Quick Connect:

Is your gas flow valve part of the regulator? If so,when you remove the regulator you will need to put something in line to control the flow.

Dumb question, if installed this way without regulator does this mean you can't control flame on grill? If you can't, on a scale of 1-10 (10 being highest) what size flame do you get?

I have not used it much, but it looks the same. The good thing with this conversion is if you dont like it, you can convert it back.

No, it means the grill has its own regulator built in. The flame is controlled by the gas valve on both systems.

If you hook up a grill with two regulators, one on tank and one on grill, the gas pressure drops to low and you can't hardly get any flame.

No. The regulator is on the RV. Unless your talking about the min/max knob then you would have no way to turn it on/off.

All this does is make a really long extension from the propane tanks. You still have the regulator on the tanks themselves. You're just eliminating the one attached to the grill. I've used it like this for 3 years and it works great and much better than toting bottles around.
