outside gas grill connector

Quick question: Is the outside grill hook-up high pressure or low pressure. I came from a Coleman Popup and some of their models had low pressure ports (where you use the inside cook-top outside) and some had high-pressure ones.

Mine had a high pressure one, and I made up an adapter/hose assembly that let me run my collapsible BBQ grille on the PUPs propane. Normally the grill used a 20lb bottle, but with the adapter, I didn't need to carry an extra one along.

Sure would be nice to have that same convenience with the new Roo when it gets here.

Low pressure as dunnnc mentions.

If I read you right, you want to use your high pressure grill with the low pressure propane. This might be useful for you...

Man's Best Friend-His BBQ

Or you might consider an extend-a-stay adapter that can supply your grill; although it's from the propane bottles on the tongue so you need a long hose.

The outside grill connector will supply LP "Low Pressure" gas at 11" water column.

My Roo 23SS came with the BBQ and outside gas port. I'd prefer to use a stovetop like a portable Coleman. Can I just connect the Coleman to the low pressure port or do I need to do something else?

if I am following this thread correctly, I can remove the hose with the regulator off of my grill, and put a hose with a matching connector to the outside grill port on it and everything should work ok. Right?

IIRC, my grill's regulator is an 10 or 11 inch column one, so I think it would work out ok.

I was looking at Camping World today for this...

Propane/Natural Gas Connector Kit w/ Shutoff Valve - Mr. Heater F276181 - Propane Accessories - Camping World

I don't know for sure if that is the part. But I'm going to pick one up.
