Quick connect for portable BBQ grills

Does anybody have trouble when they hook up their grills to the quick connect not having what seems to be
Not enough pressure to light both burners. I have a Coleman road trip ( the red one) , bought the hose to hook from
The quick connect to where the bottle screws into the regulator on the grill. Can get one burner to burn a little bit, but
Not enough to heat anything.

If you still have the regulator on the grill, it will NOT work. Remove the grill regulator.

Then I got some bad info, the camper world salesman told me I need to go through the regulator. The hose I bought screw into where the little bottle goes. I don't know how I could bypass the regulator.

If your hose (feed end) is connected after another regulator that would put 2 regulators in series. The feed end needs to be connected between the LP tank and the camper regulator. If it is not you will probably have to bypass the BBQ regulator or relocate the feed end. I think this is correct. If you relocate the feed end be sure and open your tank valve slowly so the tank safety valve does not shut the tank down. If your LP supply is from a portable bottle, disregard all this.

If your supply line is like this picture, it is already going thru a regulator. You will have to remove the regulator on the grill.
