Camp chef grill

I just purchased a camp chef grill. I want to use it in place of the bbq that came with my trailer. Has anyone hooked one up to the quick coupler on the trailer? I am wondering if the pressure would be enough to function correctly?

Only if the gas port supply's high pressure as most Camp Chef stoves require high pressure. On the Colman pop ups the high wall campers had high pressure gas ports for grills.

You will need to review your campers specifications or use a pressure gauge to verify if the gas port supplies the high pressure required by the stove.

I have used one you have to take the regulator off the stove as the gas line on the RV is regulated. I found it doesn't burn as clean from the RV gas system probably a slightly lower pressure. I have since put the regulator back on and bought a tank that I use for backup on the RV.

Hey Biggs, I have a Camp Chef (love it!). I run it off my camper's outside connection. 2015 Micro Lite 25KS. Had to buy Camp Chef's accessory RV hose to replace the one with regulator that came with the stove. A bit hard to find, try Google of course. Works just fine and no need for the 20# tank. Wish it was about 5' longer, but it's good.

Thanks for the information. I will probably just pack a 20# bottle. That will allow placement further away from the trailer.

I had a 10 foot long hose made for mine. I use it every time we camp.

Camp chef is a low pressure stove so it works off of your quick connection on your camper. I bought a 10 foot hose at the hardware store, just had to put a male quick connection on the end. Going to try a 20 foot hose next. The flame is a slight bit lower than on a bottle but not a big deal. If you need just take bottle off camper.

I have the camp chef mvp grill. I bought the hose and adapter from camp chef and it it 100 percent compatible with my tt's low pressure hose and quick connect. I see no real difference in heat produced and I can definitely get it hot enough to sear steaks on high.

I can connect my Camp Chef grill to the trailer, but choose not to. I prefer a separate #20 tank so the grill can be placed anywhere and I am not stepping on hoses.
