Outside mounted bbq conversion

We purchased a Grey Wolf 17BH and it came with the outside mounted grill accessory. After speaking with the dealership and hearing feedback from other local owners we have elected not to use it, but would love to use the connection to fuel our Camp Chef camping stove. Has anyone else done something similar with success? Is that line already regulated at the LP tank end, thus making unnecessary to use a regulator at the grill end? Will it be more successful if we T off the line at the LP tank? Thank you in advance!

The big question is why you have elected not to use it.

If you already have a quick connect than use it. Your whole camper system is already regulated so no regulator is necessary on your stove. If your stove takes the screw on bottles, you can buy an adapter at possibly any dealer that sells propane, maybe an rv dealer or a farm and ranch type store. Ebay will for sure have them.
We have a Sidekick grill and its worked fine for us, it was an option on our last trailer. Maybe post pics of what the grill and cook top you are speaking of and your propane quick connect or line settup. That would make this much easier to give you an exact answer!

X2, we've used ours on the side of the trailers for the last 6 yrs with no problems and they are both under the awnings. I think the dealer and whomever else you spoke to are blowing smoke.

We are not using it because the mounting bracket is only secured into the siding of the trailer, not all the way into the body.

How did you determine that it is only secured to the siding. Ours goes into a backing board with 1" screws.

We use the sidekick because, well, it was free.

Though I'd like to go with the Camp Chef. They have an adapter to hook up to your quick connect (http://www.campchef.com/stoves/add-o...tion-hose.html). Simply buy a hose and never lug an extra propane tank.

Thank you so much! This is exactly what we are looking for and we neglected to ever look at the Camp Chef site!
