My dealer told me it would be a very expensive modification since the grill is designed to work on high pressure propane, and the RV propane system is of low pressure. Anyone know of an affordable way to solve this problem?
Any help is greatly appreciated. My old RVQ grill from my previous Surveyor trailer tied in directly to the RV tanks.
I'm not sure I'm following, as this seems completely backwards. I'm wondering if the dealer misunderstood.
If you have a grill that currently works off the 1lb high pressure propane bottles, it should work directly from the 20lb tanks. I have a Coleman Roadtrip NXT that I do this with. You can buy the hoses at Academy, Lowes, etc for this. These kind of grills have a regulator built into them, that lowers the pressure.
A lot of trailers also have a low pressure lp hose that has been run thru a pressure regulator downstream of the bottles. It's this low pressure hose that you have problems connecting to a grill that already has a pressure regulator built in. You then have basically 2 pressure regulators, and it's too low.
You can only connect a grill that doesn't have a low pressure regulator built in it to the low pressure RV propane hose. I think the RVQII is like that, but don't know about the original RVQ.
You could only connect the RVQII to the low pressure hose that some RV's have........but would need an regulator/adapter (that RVQ has on their website) to hook it up directly to 1lb or larger propane cylinders.
If you coleman stove uses 1lb bottles, then all you need is a hose to run from it to your propane cylinders direct (you can't use the RV's low pressure grill hose). You can buy this hose at several places as I stated above.
We were just actually discussing all this the other day in this thread:
