Another Coleman Roadtrip grill conversion ??

I've been reading thru the different ways to convert a Coleman Roadtrip grill to use the low pressure outside connector on my Jayco Eagle Superlite. Most of the solutions discuss ways to remove the OEM Coleman regulator & connect a line directly from there to the onboard RV connector. Here's my question....Has anyone attempted to reroute the outside connector to the high pressure side of the RV? Wouldn't it be better to retain the Coleman regulator & just supply high pressure to it? I realize that this could be done very easily with a separate propane tank but, if your RV storage is as full as mine, carrying an extra propane tank would require leaving something else home. It shouldn't be too difficult to install a "T" into the high pressure side before the RV regulator and then attach the outside connector to one leg of the "T". Sure there would be fittings/adapters to purchase but, on the plus side, the grill would still be useable with the 1 lb cylinders if ever needed. Any thoughts?

well written Larry, I have asked myself this same question over and over, I looked for the T in websites that sell propane fittings and have read about every item on these forums. so in the mean time I'll wait to see if someone replies and maybe a picture or two.

Sye, do you have to turn that bottle off (close the valve) to connect and disconnect the grill line?

I do not. It works great and it allows me to use the grill regulator and not the campers
