Hopefully, this will make some sense. That's why I'm including pictures. They seem to work better than me trying to explain it.

Also hope it will help a folks out there. I've been asked several times at camp sites how I did it.

One note. You do not need to use an additional hose. You can plug right into the camper pigtail. I just happen to like putting the grill anywhere I want and that's why I have an extra hose.

This is the hose I use.

I split the regulator. This is a task and a half because it will feel as if it is welded together. It will eventually get lose and you'll be able to split it.

The cost from Home Depot was about whopping $6.00. Not exactly certain since this was about a year ago. Trust me, it works like a charm. As I mentioned, the hardest part was splitting from the regulator.

Hope this helps. Happy Grilling.

I use the stainless steel Camco Olympus. A direct replacement for the RVQ style grill, and a little pricey, but I have used it for 4 years and wouldn't give it up. I used it on my popup and when I got the 2015 Roo I sold the new factory grill with the pop-up and kept the Olympus.

We had the Coleman Roadtrip (red) and agree with other posters that it is hard to clean. Also found it so much larger when folded than the sidekick, which coincidentally cooks better and more evenly. This may be due to the low flow of the Roo, but we are very happy with the sidekick BBQ.

I have the Coleman Road Trip (Blue one)

It uses water in the bottom for easier clean up. I have the griddle option and the stove burner option. I have not modified it to work with a standard 20 lb propane tank yet, or the trailers quick connect. I will have to look into that mod.

We use the RVQ. It wasn't an option that I would have ordered, but it came with our Shamrock and now that I've used it for a year, I'm glad we have it. It has some hot spots but once I got the hang of cooking on it the results are good.

I have the Weber. Works well for us and also use it as a portable grille away from the camper.
