Will defintely look into this. Had been trying to figure out how to do exactly this for sometime now. The RV dealer had said could not be done (and they get this request ALL the time). Really do not like the stupid grill the camper came with.

Well, I went to the local RV place and picked up an LP male quick disconnect for $12.99 then got a 1/8"m x 1/4"f adapter for $2.99 at Princess Auto. Then took the Coleman regulator / adapter apart at the female fitting per the video and put the new stuff on it and bada bing I now can connect to the trailer QD hose and no more little bottles required. BTW make sure you use either the yellow gas fitting tape or paste to seal the threads, not the white plumbers Teflon tape.
I have included a pic of the end result in all it's simplicity.

Thanks again Jetter for the amazingly simple fix to this issue. All total I have $16.00 and 20 minutes of my time into this project.

Anyone know if there is any reason this can't / shouldn't be done using the LXX version of the Coleman Roadtrip Grill?

I think I figured out what he used for the hanger arm assembly but don't know where to get it. It looks like it goes to a sidekick grill and the part is MK614001. But does anybody know where to get one? I'd really like to be able to hang the grill from the rail.

I'll ask my question a different way... :-) Does anyone know the weight limit for hanging something on this rail?

This is my big concern besides having a heat source so close to my camper. I'm not real keen on having grease all over the side either!

The bracket he used looks like the same one I got from FR with my cheapo grill that came with my Windjammer. I'm kind of curious what that weight limit is!

Sorry for the late reply. After a summer of camping I'm happy to report the grill worked awesome. Side of trailer stays cool. The rack I used came with trailer and el cheapo grill. Don't know the weight limit but it seems plenty strong to hold grill and the grub on the grill. I'd imagine you can get this racks anywhere your rv is sold if you have the mounting track on your unit.

Glad so many people are finding the guide helpful.

I would keep an eye on the rail mounting screws as I would guess that grill is getting close to the weight limit. I use ours for the rvq and a tv, but not at the same time.

I'm having problems finding the 1/8 to 1/4 adapters.
Anyone know somewhere online to purchase them?
Thanks......Joe

I used a 1/8" nipple, then added a reducing coupling. Extra fittings, so not as clean and simple as the setup in the picture above, but same result.

I seem to be a master of using random combinations of plumbing fittings based on whatever I can find to get the job done. Usually end up with extra parts, but piecing something together with parts from the local hardware store saves time running around or waiting / paying shipping on parts.

Or if you want try this:

McMaster-Carr

I use McMaster Carr all the time (mostly for work) but they are great for stuff like this.

Edit: the filters from the online catalog didn't work in the link - I believe the p/n you are after is 50785K26
