Let me know when you figure it out. I've tried with no luck.

VizJedi, yes, that's the same setup I have. It's a a factory Coleman grill and not a two burner cooktop.

It sounds like connecting to the RV propane line isn't possible since it and the Coleman connection are both regulated. I ended up just getting a couple of the small green Coleman canisters which worked fine.

This past weekend was our first trip. So far everything seems to be working properly.

It can be connected to the RV's low pressure line with the proper gas connections.

We agree. Just having trouble finding the proper connections.

If you post the model # of the grill I'm sure that one of us here can point you in the right direction.

Camping World sales a regulator that threads on to my Coleman BBQ and the other end threads on to the hose running from my propane tank.

From what I gather with the pic posted earlier in this thread, these grills appear to be of the Coleman Perfect-Flow Series. Although you can adapt the grill connection with a series of brass fittings and 1/4" Male QD, the R430B565T Regulator that comes with this grill has the gas flow control built into it. If that is eliminated you will have no control over the grill flame. So you would have to plumb-in a flow control valve. For a $70 grill that wouldn't be cost effective. The regulator has to be removed as the RV gas QD is already regulated down to around 5 PSI. You can't have two regulators on the same line. Use expensive small cylinders, carry around an extra, small refillable propane cylinder? Decision is yours.

Thanks, D W. I had a feeling this was the case. I purchased a couple of the small Coleman green tanks which worked fine for our first trip. I know I could use Ts and other methods to tap into the RV tanks, but the small green tanks are cheap and easy to use.
