Hooking up Weber grill to onboard LP system

I bought a hose to connect my Weber grill directly to the quick connect on my Isata 5 and it seems that there is not enough lp getting to the grill. Only about 20% of the burner emits flame. I had an idea that the coach has a regulator and my Weber has a regulator and maybe there is not enough gas getting to the grill since there are two regulator. Is that a correct assumption or could it be something else?

If there is a gas regulator on the grill you must remove it. Need to utilize the one on the camper to make it work. Later RJD

You need to take the Weber regulator off and get the fittings to fit your hose.

I added a connection before the coach regulator so that I can use my grill as is

I bought a conversion kit to remove the regulator on the Weber Q. Came with a hose etc... made it pretty easy. I had to extend the line from the drivers side to the passenger side on the Force, but that was pretty simple.

There are several youtube video's on how to do this. Here's one I did that includes an Amazon parts list (pause and screen print). There are others also, just search Weber Q RV.Convert Q1200 to onboard RV propane

You are correct, and that you are going thru two regulators, which produces too low a pressure on these type of grills.

The sidekick type grills that are designed to be used off of your RV's regulated grill connection, do NOT have a built in regulator in the grill....so the propane is only being regulated by the RV's regulator.

Your Weber grill and basically all the other similar type grills have a built in regulator for the grill, that regulates the pressure down when connecting to a propane cylinder or bottle.

As others have already shown you:

1. You can remove the grills built in regulator and use it with your RV's low pressure grill hose (but you will need to add it back if you want to use same grill with a propane cylinder/bottle for other things when not at your RV)

2. You add a T fitting in at your RV's propane cylinders (before the regulator) and run a hose off it to your Weber with no modifications necessary. Then your grills regulator will do it's intended function.

We have many members here who do either 1 or 2, depending on their needs.

Yes, like others said, you need to remove the regulator on the grill. I just did this conversion to mine a month or so ago and love it.

One thing I noticed is that it seems to take the grill a little longer to get up to temperature, but once heated up, it's really hard to lower the heat. That is once it shows, say 400 degrees, I'll turn the knob all the way to low, and it won't go lower than say 300 or 350.

The hose I have has a 1/4 turn shutoff at the end of it. I find that if I need to turn the grill temp to a lower temperature, I will close that shutoff half-way, and that reduces the flow enough that I have more control with the grill knob. So if you haven't purchased the quick connect hose yet, I recommend one that has the shutoff on the end.

You want the adapter that goes before the regulator. It comes with a long hose and a short hose. That way you can leave the regulator on the grill and still use the tanks if away from the coach.
