I don't hear any propane coming out and nothing is happening. Am I missing something? The inside cooktop and furnace get propane.
I just figured out that our fridge needed a switch flicked, does this propane need anything? I don't want to fry my burgers and steak...
Just my 2 cents...
After I noticed that the short hose made it hard to cook away from the camper and getting tired of hearing the smoke alarm go off constantly and the possibility of the heat generated by the grill causing problems to the camper canvas and shell, I decided to just buy a tripod grill.
Sure I could of got an extension cord...but look at the room I saved in my popup by removing the grill and storing the tripod which easily collapses. I also save a ton of propane by not using it for cooking. Instead I use firewood I buy anyway for the heat. Sometimes I'll also get a small bag of charcoal to keep the heat going for longer. Either way works for me. If you're looking for more space anyway, you may want to dump the BBQ grill and go for the tripod.
