Mounting an outside grill

We bought a Wildwood 241QBXL and I bought a grill and mounting rail. Has anyone mounted one of these? I have some questions about how to determine where the wall studs are and also how to tee in to the gas line.
Thanks for any help!

Welcome and congrats on your Wildwood 241QBXL. Are you sure there isn't already a place to connect the grill to the LP? Most campers have one on the curb side underneath.

Give some real though about mounting it on the rear bumper! F/R has this option on some units with the OS/kit! I have not seen a unit with the Quick Con. without the grill Option. Youroo!!

To Wiscampsin - Thanks. Just to be sure, I went out and laid under the trailer ... again. One gas line runs front to back on the road side. It's teed at the rear, I'm guessing to the furnace and the refrigerator.

I got the grill option, not for the grill, but for the remote LP connection. Sure might come in handy not to mention I don't have to add it myself.

That option wasn't made available to me. Thanks for all your input.

You will need to tee into your gas line after the regulator and where it is conveniant with conventional pipe or flare fittings then run your branch line to where you want it and install a shut off then you can use a quick disconnect and hose to hook up your grill. Please note this will be low pressure 11"wc (6.35oz) If the grill you choose uses the throw away bottle this will not work you would have to tee in between the regulator and tank and run a high pressure line.
Mr Heater has most if not all of the stuff you need either way. You can find it online or at Menards/Rural King/tractor supply. I have attached a couple of pictures of the 12ft hose w/quick disconnect and the quick disconnect by its self. Once you open your system make sure to test all of the new connections with a soapy water solution if it bubbles you got a leak.

Good Luck

One additional thought. If you tee between the tank and onboard regulator you will probably have a manually operated valve for your tee output. When you open that valve to supply propane to your remote appliance (grill etc.) open the valve slowly so the auto shut off (sensing an open gas line) for your onboard propane bottle does not trip. I believe this to correct.
