We most certainly use ours. Great to no tote the extra tank for a gas grill. But when it gets cold you need to watch out; Easy to suck up both of your gas bottles for heat and when your using your quick connect it's easy to run out of gas. The reason some carry the extra bottle, I think.

99% of our camping is boondocking, so less is more. We used the bracket were the grill goes & hang a expanded shelf that I built there. The Camp Chef sits under & in front of the shelf a few feet from the camper. The Camp Chef 2 burner is set up to connect to the quick connect & we use it religiously. I never really felt comfortable hanging a grill directly to the side of camper. Here's a few pics of the new table & stove hooked up.

I don't like cooking right next to the RV, so I rarely have used it for outside connect...however, my propane hose quick connect is located under my galley countertop so that I could easily re-route the hose inside the trailer to supply propane to my catalytic heater.

Comes in handy when boondocking since no electric necessary to heat the living area (just need to be sure to "crack" two windows or roof vents to refresh O2).

I use our propane quick connect all the time. I use a converted Coleman Roadtrip LXE grill. Found the instructions and parts needed on Youtube for the conversion. It was easier than I expected and works just fine. I did save the original Coleman grill regulator parts so I could easily convert back to the small propane bottles if I ever needed to.

Use ours all the time with Weber Q100 (with Weber regulator removed).

Our 2014 Sun seeker came with one. We use it all the time for our campchef, the BBQ and a propane campfire. We love not having to carry extra tanks.

There are a few videos on YouTube showing how to do it, fittings needed and whatnot. It's pretty simple. Our first TT came with a Flame King grill, with a quick disconnect, it's lightweight but works pretty good. We also have a Camp Chef two burner stove for outside as well. On our first TT I carried a 20lb tank, and got tired of that real quick. On this new TT, I've made a 'T' fitting with two quick disconnects on it, so I can plug a single hose to the TT, and connect both the grill and the stove to the 'T' so I can use both at the same time. I've removed the regulator from the Camp Chef stove so I can run it off the propane supply onboard. No more tank carrying!

Can I highjack for a second to ask which propane fire? We bought a Little Red last year but I haven't found a quick connect option yet because the valve is built into the regulator. For now, I've been pulling off my secondary tank to use with the campfire when we use it, but I'd much rather use my quick connect if possible.

I bought some quick disconnect stuff for my portable Coleman.. the part that screws on the grill with the regulator isn't pipe threads... I would have to make something adapt to the low pressure hose from the several other projects.. it got bumped to the side and I have been using a 20# bottle. I got a Coleman XXL i think...wish i had a big Q grill. Nothing $300 wont fix
