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.

Agreed. I can fill several of the 1# bottles from a 20# tank at home much cheaper than buying the 1#-ers at Walmart, and then I don't have to carry the extra weight of the 20# tank with me. Chuck them in the truck bed when they're empty, take 'em home, and refill again. They're only environmentally unfriendly when you throw them away after one use.

I use a "shnozzle" to refill my tanks for my converted coleman lanterns.

I knew I'd seen this discussed previously here:

1 gallon propane tank

You folks are a lot braver than I am with these little propane bottles. Sheesh, when we have one partially used I ask DH to take it *way* out back and store it on a utility trailer far, far away from anything.

We take only brand new/un-used bottles with us camping. They're cheap enough and I don't want to risk leakage.

I saw a 4 lb refillable tank on a "cookie ad" when I was doing a Google search just now and can't find it again. Now that's something that would interest me. It looked just like our tanks on the 5er, just very small. IIRC it was something like $54.00.

Here it is;

Refillable Steel Propane Cylinders-4.5 lb. / 1 gal. - Worthington Cylinders 281149 - Propane Cylinders - Camping World

Another item for my 5er accessory want list. If I buy it now can I convince him it's a day-after-valentine's day gift for us both?

Our local lp supplier (Southern LP) has a wall full of hoses and connectors, along with cookers, heaters, etc. They're very knowledgeable and s quick stop in one near you may provide the info you need.

Wiscampsin I like this idea too! We have the Char Broil Tru Infrared grill that uses those scarey 1lb jugs. Now to figure out if the fitting for the RVQ would be the same as the Char Broil.

You guys are probably laughin at me, but seriously those little green buggers give me the heebeejeebees.

I'm wondering if there are actually EPA regulations regarding the disposal of the little 1 lb cans. May be something on printed on the label...I just never thought to look.

Back when XH and I had the A/C business we were required to punch holes in the Freon bottles before disposal. Two reasons; landfill safety and people were still trying to convert (after they became non refillable) to air bottles for flat tire situations stored in their trucks or car trunks. Don't DO IT!

Taranwanderer.....do you use the "shnozzle" to refill your 1lb'ers as well? Looks like a handy tool...I never knew they existed.

No one here has addressed my post.

I -think- the weber grill the OP is asking about is made to run at
full (disposable) tank pressure.
If he connects it to his RV LP system he will have reduced pressure
and the grill won't work.
Or not- I'm not sure. Anyone with one of those grills- does it have it's
own regulator or not??

As far as I know, aside from the RVQ all other portable grills come with a regulator. I remember a thread last year about somebody doing a mod to a Coleman BBQ to bypass the regulator and allow it to run on the Trailer's quick connect, but I'm having trouble finding it searching within the iPad app. I think that thread had a side discussion of the Weber as well.
