I think that the LP and the air connectors are different. If I remember I bought a brass male connector and didn't get to use it on my old TT. When I needed an air connector I found out I it didn't fit the air hose. I think it has a different ring locks on it.

One thing to keep in mind when using this nipple is that it is a low pressure line ... ie ... you do not require a regulator.

Through me for a loop since my past rv used high pressure.

Please explain how using a nipple eliminates the need for a regulator. I understand if you are coming off the camper gas line you don't need/want another regulator.

It regulated at the tank. No need for another regulator on BBQ pit or whatever else a person will run off the propane.

It is not the nipple that means you do not require a regulator .... it s the fact that the gas going through that line has already gone thru a regulator and the pressure is low.

My old rv had a nipple that was unregulated.an came off the body tank ... This was similar to.eumming a bit off of a 20 lb tank ... it was high pressure and a regulator was required on my bbq.

When I attempted.the same Co figuration on the Berk ... it was like cooking over a big lighter. As soon as I removed the BBQ regulator and ran a straight hose ... everything worked great.

I have however had more of a problem with gumming

Thanks dan-nickie for the description with pics. I think I'll go the same route and keep the portable option available. PAUL
