splitting My Pre-Plumbed Propane?

I'd like to move from using portable propane tanks with a tree to putting a quick connect on my pre-plumbed line at the back of the trailer. From what I have read, I would need to remove the regulator on my stove and BBQ because that line is already regulated. Can someone please confirm that. Secondly, is there a reason I can't plumb two quick connects at at the end of my pre-plumbed line so I can simultaneously plug in my stove and grill. Thanks in advance!☺️

I assume your talking about low pressure (after the regulator) and not high pressure (before the regulator)

I added a low pressure line and a quick disconnect hose to my Mirada to feed a vent less heater. Sounds like something similar:

I cut the copper tubing and put in a flared "T". I installed a ball valve in the new line so I could shut off gas to the new quick connection.

I then used a LP quick disconnect and hose from a Grill smoker. These are high quality quick disconnects specifically for LP that shut the line off when they get disconnected - HOWEVER - Do not trust that internal valve, that's why I put in the ball valve to make sure LP is off to the quick disconnect line.

Here is the link to the Quick disconnect and hose I used:

Gas Quick Connect Hose / Gas Quick Connects Gas Hose Systems

Use hard draw copper and flare fittings (do not use compression fittings) , make sure its secured so it doesn't vibrate.
