From what I've read, a lot depends on whether you have a low pressure or high pressure system at your quick connect on your RV. Here's a BBQ grill site that deals in both and has more info...
Gas Quick Connect Hose / Gas Quick Connects Gas Hose Systems
I have a 1/2 PSI max female quick connect on the outside of my Windjammer 2809W, which means I'm dealing with a low pressure
line. For my particular setup, a 100395-combo hose quick connect with a pigtail adapter hose
from Tejas Smokers
was an ideal solution. It's designed for low-pressure and mates with my RV's brand of quick connect. I got the 12 foot length.
With the external low pressure regulator and hose removed from my particular BBQ pit's 3/8" flair, the combo's pigtail adapter hose
mated nicely. My reconnected pit (at the proper incoming pressure) cooks just like when it was previously hooked up to my 2.6 gal propane cylinder via the regulator/hose.
Several weeks later I decided I would like to also quick connect with my 2.6 gal propane cylinder as another option, so I picked up an on-off low pressure female quick connect
and a 3/8 flair to 1/4 npt connector
to attach to the pit-end of the external-regulator-and-hose that I removed from my pit. I'm lucky to have a plumber friend to help me with gas fittings.
I believe some pits have internal regulators, some external regulators, and some none at all. Some connect to throw-away cylinders, some to reusable bulk cylinders, and some to various quick-connects.
You'll need to educate yourself on the needs of your particular
BBQ pit, various appropriate connectors, and the outside interface at your particular RV. I learned there was no "one solution." If you are unsure, have a professional familar with propane hoses and accessories help you. Leaking propane or propane at the wrong system pressure can go bang
