Propane hook up for outside stove

new wildcat 312 QBX. tried to hook up the propane under the stairs to the outside burner and could not get gas. Is there a switch or something we have to do at that propane valve site to get this working? Could it possibly be linked to only one tank? we only had one tank in at the time.....other was out with the fire pit. anyone know? thank you!

My Wildcat MAXX exterior propane port has a valve that must be opened to get gas at that location. If you have a valve, it should be under the trailer fairly close to the actual outside connection point.

I have the same rig, you must connect the hose vis the quick connect, and then turn the handle located on the quick connect to open the valve and lock the hose in place, you will not be able to detach or reattach the hose with the valve in the open position. Does not matter which tank you are using

If no gas remember that the unit comes with a pressure regulator, so if what ever you are hooking it up too also has a regulator there will be no gas due to very reduced gas pressure. As it is reducing twice thus little or no flow.

Agree, if your stove/grill that you're attempting to operate also has a regulator, you'll need to bypass it. Your quick connect on your trailer is already regulated pressure.

With all due respect guys - I believe the OP is referring to the factory 2 burner stove than comes mounted on the side of the 312QBX and has a quick disconnect hose. I have the same unit. It does not have a regulator. He is not referring to a aftermarket appliance. It will work fine if he follows the directions I posted earlier in the thread

I have the same set up for the outside kitchen stove and the grill with my SP240 Surveyor and am always having to bend back down and turn that little valve. It is a pain to be safe at times, kind of like not being able to start the truck until you seat belt is on. Enjoy your camper and have fun.
