Propane hose

Trying to find a propane hose that will connect from my tt to my Weber Q-grill. It would have to be a female quick disconnect style on the tt end and attach to the grill on the other. Any ideas?

Just guessing here but a quick peek at Amazon says the weber q grill (many different
models??) use disposable propane cylinders. This -probably- (I'm guessing here) means
the grill is made to run at full tank pressure. But if you run it off your trailer LP you would
be supplying LP at a reduced-regulated pressure. This would mean you need a different orifice in the grill burner valve.
There are some folks here who are LP experts and I'm sure one will comment pretty soon.
Good Luck!

When we had our popup I didn't like the idea of using the RVQ grill hooked onto the sidewall. I took the short hose that came with the grill to a local LP place and they put together a 10' hose. I brought along the short hose that came with the grill so they could put the correct quick connect ends on.

I run my Weber with a hose connected to a small (1 gal) propane tank. All available at Camping World or Amazon. I keep a couple of the small (1 lb.)tanks as backup in case the bigger tank runs dry. The Weber has its' own regulator.

We liked the small Weber so well, we bought a second one for home use and run it from a 20 lb. tank.

I carry 6 of the 1 lb bottles and fill them from my 20lb bottle when I get home.

I went the other way, bought a tank 'T' and hoses so I could run the Coleman grill and lantern off a extra 20# tank I had.

I found the little tanks to be a pain.

Not only a pain but not cost effective and not environmentally friendly.

Not much of pain, but less weight and since I refill them I don't see an environmental problem. The cost is about 50 cents a bottle.

One thing I do not like about the little ones is they have no off valve.

If something happened to the valve on your appliance you gas goes north quick.
