Propane quick connect

Hey all looking for some input. I'm going to install a quick connect onto my trailer. My question is where to mount it. Should I mount in the outdoor kitchen itself or near the rear bumper off the frame? All cocking is done at the rear of the trailer near the kitchen. For you that have them where does the factory mount them on trailers.

I prefer the connection to be low to the ground to reduce necessary length and so most of the hose is not a tripping hazard so under the outdoor kitchen seems better than in kitchen itself.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the input. I was planning on running it under the trailer from the distribution block to wherever I plan on putting it. I have an 8ft hose coming. If it's low to the ground is it a pain to hook up?

Yes, if its low to the ground and recessed, its awkward to connect and disconnect but only for a second.

Thank you. I've searched all over. Where did you find these. I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to connect the quick connect to the distribution block as none of the current connections have a swivel adapter and i need to pull one out to connect the T from the box to attach my quick connect

I guess i need to brush up on my Google skills. So I think I've found a way to make this work. I'm going to just T off from the regulator and run a dedicated line to the quick connect hose. It's the only way I see
