I do love my Q though. So much that our big grill is still in winter storage.

This is what I use. Just screw the adapter to your propane tank, reconnect your main propane hose and then just connect the extension hose to the adapter and your good to go. Can't get any easier.

I bought this hose because the quick connect on the camper was too short for where I like to place the grill.

and you need pipe thread tape that's rated for gas/propane
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

You unscrew the bracket the regulator is on and then twist off the regulator. You are left with a 1/8" Male pipe.

Screw the coupler onto that (using the thread tape, of course)
then the quick connect into the coupler.

Plug the quick connect hose onto the quick connect, and the other end into the female quick connect of your camper.

Voilla!
Do you have a completed photo of this. I am on my second grill and I love the grill, but hate that I cant use it, they are both in my garage sale pile because I cannot seem to get enough gas t to keep the burners lit. I am not that smart with propane, but I am using a Stay Flow adapter on my tank and it feeds my grill, so what will happen if I remove the regulator, because then there is no regulator???

So first, I should be clear, I adapted my grill to work with the Low pressure side of the RV propane, so I had to remove the regulator. The stay flow connects directly to the high pressure propane tank. You can't remove the regulator and still connect to the high pressure.

I don't understand why you wouldn't get enough flow, though? Does it work correctly with the green 1lb bottles? If not, maybe you have a bad regulator?

Can't wait to get it then the Coleman goes up for sale

We love our new 2200 and our 2000... did like 1000 but needed more size. Did have a 2000 at home and a 1000 in trailer. Recently replaced the 1000 with a 2200 with the stand, after a cook-out w/family at campground necessitated too many batches of food. By the way, the new stands are MUCH better than the old style IMHO.

It seems to work fine with the 1 pounders, but I still want to use the 100.00 adapter that I have. 2 different grills, not a coincidence that it is 2 now.

I have the adapter hose that they sell in Home Depot to use on a 20 pound tank. I ran into the same problem. I wasn't getting enough gas to keep the entire burner lit. I thought it was the hose and bought a second hose. Finally, I realized that the problem was that the hose was not depressing the plunger in the tank enough. I had some heavy duty plastic reflective tape and I cut a round piece about 5/16" of an inch and punched a small hole in the center of it. I placed it on the end of the hose where it depresses the plunger valve in the tank and it worked! I'll post a pic in a few, but the DW has lunch ready right now!

Just put mine together for our week long 4th of July trip, just using 1# tanks for this week and selling my barely 1-Year old Coleman Roadtrip

Hard to get a good closeup with a cell phone camera, but this is the end of the hose that attaches to the propane tank. You can see the red tape on the end. The outside dimension is more like 1/4". My DW has a hole punch that punches small holes and that is what I used for the inside hole.



This is the reflective tape that I used. It's quite tough and I didn't believe it would compress. I thought I might need to double up on the tape, but one piece was thick enough. Originally, I thought of glueing a small washer on the hose end, but this has done the trick for me. So SYE, get those grills out of the yard sale pile and enjoy them!
