Added Propane Hose.

Hello all,
I bought a hose that attaches to the quick connect to allow me to run my grill on the RV's propane instead of those 1lb. Propane cans. I hooked it up and it seems not to have enough flow. I can light the burners but they won't turn up high enough to cook. There is a quick open valve on the RV at the quick connect but nothing else in line to restrict flow. Any ideas as to why there would not be enough gas flow?

The gas to your grill is going thru two pressure regulators so the pressure is two low to produce a flame big enough to cook with.

What I do.

I have a hose that hooks to the tree and the grill, the lantern is on the top and an other hose for a Coleman stove.

Did you put one of these on the grill to replace the regulator.

Just remove the regulator on the grill and connect the hose directly to the grill from the quick disconnect. That is what I do....I have a valve located on my line just before the quick disconnect...
