See my post a few above. Good price! I've had great service from them over the years too.

The BBQ i ordered comes with a regulator to screw a bottle on it. The T/T already has a regulator on it. I don't think you should use 2 regulators.
Try'n to learn.

Correct. You will see that regulator is on a quick-connect. When you hook it to the house low pressure supply, you go straight into the quick-connect. They give you the regulator so you can picnic with the grill and use 5# cylinders.

The best QC is this one: MB Sturgis Inc 104052 Sturgi Stay 1 4" Model 250 Female Quick Connect | eBay

That's what you will need if your TT isn't plumbed with an outside propane QC. How you have to tee into the house main depends on what the factory used - black pipe, soft copper, etc.

For the hose, you can buy them most anywhere if your TT doesn't have a pull-out whip with the QC on it. Something like this one: RV Dual Quick Connect Hose - RV Model 250 Quick Connects & Hoses - SturgiSafe RV Propane Products (LP Hoses, Sturgi-Stays, Quick Connects & Regulators)

However, I generally have my local propane supplier make up whatever I need as they can crimp custom, high or low pressure, and any fitting. Have also used MB Sturgis directly while on the road - they'll custom crimp anything as well!

We all provided you links to the same style "K" rail, just different websites. The 16.5" is commonly found and will hold just the grill. It is also available in 30" and 36" lengths, but it's harder to find now that so many manufacturer's have switched over to the bumper hangers for their grills. If you are ordering from Amazon, here it is at their price: http://www.amazon.com/Camco-57268-Mo...E6J60B810E8G9N

Sorry about all the questions. The Camco 57268 is a "K" rail type? Also you say it will hold "just the grill"?
Thanks again

Correct. It didn't earn the moniker of "grill mounting rail" till those things came out. It was around a longer in the marine industry and referred to as K rail. There a second type of common rail for RVs to mount removable table tops, counter extensions and the old high-pressure outside cooktops (ala old Coleman and Fleetwood PUPs) that doesn't work with the Sidekick or RVQ properly. That rail is called "table support rail" in the RV industry, but is known as "J" rail in the extrusion industry. Confused yet!

There's also a bumper mount style of mounting rail like on our original TT by Jayco....this was for a Sidekick to start with but I later changed the grill to something larger which you see in the pics.....When we traded in late fall for our 2014 Silverback 33RL, I fabricated a rail similar to what we had had and added an outside grill to our 5th wheel. You can see it in a thread I posted a few weeks ago...... Added Outdoor Kitchen.
