Exterior propane quick disconnect to connect to weber q

I am looking for an adaptor hose that I can connect my weber q grill to the exterior propane quick disconnect on my 2011 Cherokee Wolf Pack 27WP. The weber q currently uses the disposable propane cylinders. The quick disconnect on the trailer is a Couple safe model 250. Is anyone out there using their Weber Q from the exterior propane connection?

Thanks

I had a hose made up at a local trailer/camping shop which had a male quick connect on one end and a female end on the other. You have to remove the regulator from the grill and connect the hose to where the regulator was. You should be good to go after that.

Many gas supply companies should be able to fix you up, as well as commercial hose companies-- those that sell hoses and fittings for almost any eqipment such as
neumatic operations.

Thanks guys. It looks like something I will get made vs. Buying something off the shelf.

20/pounder

I bring along an extra 20 pound tank and use a basic adater hose made to replace the small canister , it was like $20 at a local hardware store.
I also use it for lanterns and back up camp stove.

Propane connector Caution!

You have to be aware that the quick connector on all newer trailers is considered a "LOW PRESSURE" system. (as well the whole trailer runs on LOw Pressure) your aftermarket BBQ is High pressure. Even with the Regulator removed the exacting pressure may not be reached sacrificing saftey and performance of the BBQ. I did extensive research on this topic and I belive there may be a thread on here about it too. The reason a readily made connection hose is not available is because of this reason.
I also went with a extra tank and the commonly available tee off and tree that hooks directly to your exisiting regulator and therfore is safe to use. Alternatively you could run a new high pressure line all the way back from your propane tanks and make your own high pressure tee off (I considered it) that way no extra tank but costs became a factor so I decided against it.
We use the outdoor kitchen exclusively, as well I have a second RV fridge that stays outdoors under the awning so it's close to where we cook. It runs off the extra tank also.
Good Luck!
Ron

There have been a number of posts on various RV forums about very high temperatures on Weber Q when running off the RV's system. They're all from folks who have hooked in downstream of the system regulator in the RV.

The grill's own regulator is specifically set up for its performance needs whereas the RV regulator controls pressure for the fridge, cook-top, water heater and furnace.

If you really want to connect to the RV supply, it should hook up upstream of the regulator, then leave the grill's regulator in place. Then, as Ron points out, you've got a long flexible line with the unregulated tank pressure in it.

A portable 5-gallon/20-pound bottle, like larger bbq's use is probably the best option. You can get floor-mountable retaining rings to hold the bottle in a stow bin while travelling.

Good info guys. I have the hose that hooks to the 20lb tank that connects to the bbq. I was just trying to minimize the number of things that I have to bring along.

On reflection, maybe you could install a short CRS tube that tees into the house gas line upstream of the regulator, with a quick release on the end. If you then remove the grill's regulator and make it match that quick release, you could plug it into the quick-release and run a low-pressure flexible hose to the grill.

This is what we do, also. We purchased the adapter at Walmart.
