Apex 259BHSS question

Hi everyone,
We have recently moved from a pop-up to a 2015 259BHSS. Over the winter I'm looking to slowly upgrade some of our camping accessories. I'm currently looking for a new grill. With the pop-up we used a basic grill with the 1lb propane cylinders. I would like to get a newer grill and use the LP tanks on the trailer.

My question is does anyone know whether or not the 259BHSS has an LP port from the factory? It's listed as standard equipment but i don't remember seeing one.

The trailer is in storage and I won't be able to access it for a couple months. We bought the camper late in the year and only got to use it once so I'm not completely familiar with where everything is.

If someone has a 259BHSS and can verify whether or not there is an LP port I would really appreciate it.

My 288bhs has an extra port on the block underneath. Im just gonna extend some hose to the back and have the quick connect there. I did this on my previous camper and modded my weber 200 with a hose and quick connect! I love that grill better then my home weber!

Whereabouts is the "block" you are referring to? Sounds like an excellent idea!

On my 288bhs its behind the awning side wheels. Just follow the rubber lines underneath, they all meet at the brass block.

For anyone with the bbq option on this or any model, is there a shut off valve or just a quick connect? Getting the parts together, last camper i used a shut off valve dont think i really need one though.
