The quick connect saga

So after much delay and frustration I finally got my propane quick connect done. Initially I was just going to T off the distribution block but couldn't break the connection. Then I was going to run rubber hose from the regulator to the back but no one around carried that size. So I finally decided to run galvanized pipe from the regulator to the back. Here are pics of the installClick image for larger version

Very nice. Looks like a good bit of of work. Did you hook it up your implement of cooking to try it out?

Every time you use it you'll think, yeah, I built this. Nice job.

What bbq do you have? I left my Roadtrip at home for the first time in ~20 years and survived pretty well with a 22" Blackstone for a week. Still have some learning to do...

Should be black pipe. The galvanized pipe will flake and plug jets in the appliance.

Google it, not approved for use due to what I have said above.

I don't know the maker, I bought it from Walmart a few years ago. I probably will drop it and rebuild the outdoor kitchen in the next few months. This trip will be a good indication if I drop the BBQ all together. I still have the Treager in the 5er

I wouldn't use it. Not allowed and would fail an inspection if used in a home.

Some places it's not allowed, some places it is. And this is a travel trailer not a home and it's not going to be underground.
