LP Hose extension?

My Roo has a gass grill which attaches to the side of the camper, there is an LP hose that supplies gas to the grill, it has a quick connect attachment making it easy to attach to the grill. I was told I could buy an extension for the hose, basically making it longer, so I can move my grill out from under the awning further from the camper if I need to. Does anyone have a similar set up? I am wandering where to buy an extension hose that will fit the quick connect attachement. I looked online and have not seen any. Thanks.

Here you go.

You need one of these


And one of these.


They both can be found here. www.heatershop.com

You can also buy the parts from Camping World if there's one close to you.

Also try Home Depot and get natural gas bbq hose. Usually 15-20' and brass adapter fittings can be had at many hardware stores

If you go the route I recommended you'll need one other part. A male 3/8" flare to female 1/4" pipe adapter. Home depot or Lowes might be a good place to look too. Not sure they'll have the quick connector parts but it's worth a try.

My local harbor freight has a 25 3/8" air hose with threaded connectors on each end. Can an air hose be used?

NO. You want hose that's labeled LP gas right on the hose.

I am looking to do this as well. I have found this hose. Basically I want to come off the the camper to a Male Quick Connect connector (Trailer has a Female with a shut off valve already) to a 12 ft hose that I can plug into what ever grill I decide to purchase. Currently I am considering the Coleman - RoadTrip Grill LX.

Here is what I am thinking.
1"-20 Male Throwaway Cylinder Thread x 1/4" Female Pipe Thread
http://www.heatershop.com/images/F276140_large.jpg

Swivel 1"-20 Male Throwaway Cylinder Thread x Swivel 1"-20 Female Throwaway Cylinder Thread
http://www.heatershop.com/images/F273711_large.jpg

1/4" Male Pipe Thread x Male Plug Quick Connect Fitting
http://www.heatershop.com/images/F276328_large.jpg

Am I on the right track with this? Are there different types of Quick Connect connections that would cause me to have to find a specific quick connect male adapter?

If you are thinking about hooking a grill that's made for throw
away cylinders to the LP tank on your RV it won't work.
The RV has a regulator that greatly reduced the LP pressure
to the devices in your RV such as your stove and fridge.
A grill that's made for throwaway tanks has different orifices and
won't work at the reduced regulated pressure.

Is there another grill I should be looking at?

I have a Broil King porta chef and I see them used by the majority of campers I see. Regulator is easily removed for hookup to trailer propane system. Much better than the unit available from trailer manuf.
