Sometimes, we read a message then type a reply, and before we submit, one or more other replies may time in, so our reply may end up several down, and, unquoted, may appear to be responding to someone else. Or, a message posts to the next viewed page.

It helps to quote only the part we are answering, like I just did with yours, abednego. Is that what you are trying to help KMP44 with?

abednego, I too thought, in principle, that regulator to regulator to regulator all intended for the same down-side pressure would not cause me a problem. However, I had an issue last year with a reg-to-reg flow on a different trailer/grill, so I too concluded since then, perhaps incorrectly, insufficient pressure would happen other times.

It helps to know what the design pressure of the appliance your trying to hook up is/ Meaning is it designed to run at 11" wc (approx 6.35 oz) or 1-2 or 3psi. Most (not all) Turkey fryers, Fish cookers etc run at an elevated pressure, the regulator that comes with them reduces the tank pressure which will vary from 28 psi at 0deg to 196 psi at 100 degrees to what the unit is designed for the units with the knob on the regulator could vary from 10 psi down to 1 or 2 for low flame. Hooking a high pressure unit after a low pressure regulator will result in a yellow sooty flame a poor performance. Hooking a low pressure regulator after a low pressure regulator could result in the same.
