Hot got two of those from Home Depot that had the same problem. And they were the Weber brand so I thought they would be the best. Bought a cheaper one on Amazon that work great.

I was tempted to buy a hose from Walmart and see how it worked. Do you have any details on the one you got at Amazon?

Walmart only sells the charbroil brand and the one that goes from the propane tank to the Weber or Coleman grill works fine for $12

That was back in 2012. I do not remember the brand.

We have owned 2 Weber Q grills. The first was the big one and we needed it when camping with our 3 boys. It's 14 years old and still works great, we gave it to oldest son for his apartment patio. We then bought the smaller version for home and camping since it is usually just the two of us now. Shortly after buying the second one we had a visit from a raccoon and yes he knocked it off the table and it landed on our cement patio and broke the leg. Still works great though! We have also given the smaller one as wedding and birthday gifts for family. Highly recommend it!

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!

Thanks, I will see if I can try this

Weber Q Grill 2200

Got to try mine out last night after getting it together. Stand is a wee bit wobbly but works well, screwdriver spatula and a Miller Lite while cooking dogs and burgers, grill cooked awesome and easier to clean than the Coleman Roadtrip

Just a few days prior to Father's Day, we bought a Weber Spirit gas grill. What a difference in cooking from the last one we had.

Reading this thread, I looked at the accessories for it on Amazon. I'm going to order a griddle for ours. If our 5'er didn't have the bumper mounted gas grill on it, I would buy one of these Weber 2200. The reviews by thos that have bought them are awesome.

I just bought a 2200 about a month ago. I absolutely love it. I plumbed it into my camper tanks and it worked perfect...now if the price of beef would come down...lol..
