outside gas line on Sport 220RBS

I was wondering if anyone who has a Surveyor Sport knows if there is an outside connection for hooking up a propane BBQ or a firebowl on a 2014 Surveyor Sport 220 RBS? I don't have the trailer close by to post a pic, but I did notice some sort of connection on the passenger side, under the stove/fridge area (under the warning label about turning gas of at source before servicing appliances). It had a white cap and is in-line with the gas line and mounted on the I-beam frame (I think). I find the drop down tailgate/bike rack is a handy tabletop for the BBQ and camp stove, but would love to stop using the disposable BBQ tanks. I am trying to avoid packing around an extra 5 or 10 lb tank just for that purpose. If the weather is great, I'd much rather cook outside.

Hello daman,

Yes, that is a propane quick disconnect fitting. But it is regulated down to the low pressure used by the trailer appliances. Stoves or BBQ's that use the high pressure from a tank will not work. You will have to buy ones designed for low pressure propane. I would not recommend trying to "modify" your existing stove or BBQ.

Hope you are enjoying your 220 as much as we are!! Safe travels.

Thanks for your reply. Too bad about not being able to use the little Baby Weber I picked up last year. Do you own a Surveyor Sport, and if so have you any idea how you can carry bikes on the grid tailgate of the trailer? I know that the bar is supposed to be mounted vertically, but the rest I just can't quite get my head around how the bikes attach.

I don't use the bar that came with the trailer. I built some bike racks that hold the front and rear tires. I bolt the racks to the expanded metal tailgate. I set the bikes in the racks and use a ratchet strap to hold them in place so they don't tip or bounce. Also bought a large BBQ cover to keep them clean and dry as we travel.

Safe travels.

Oldcat, Thanks for all the info. I bought a small rack that hooks onto the ladder at the back, but only feel comfortable mounting the grand kids bikes on (even though it should hold 2 adult bikes). Great idea about the BBQ cover for the bikes. My next project is figuring out how to get two small kayaks either on the truck (and still use the tonneau cover) or on/in the trailer. I might just try jamming them in the trailer door and shutting it quickly.
