LP quick connect/ Air chuck

Does anyone by chance know the size of the female LP quick connect for the factory installed male auxiliary LP quick connect? And does anyone know the size of the female quick connect for the Air line auxiliary connection?

I just bought male and female for adapting my Weber Q to use the low pressure LP in the Berkshire bay.
I think all LP items were 1/4 NPT.
Just hooked them up and tested today. I see the Amazon prices have changed.
Amazon.com: Camco 57282 10' Propane Quick-Connect Hose: Automotive
Amazon.com: Camco 59903 Propane Quick-Connect Fitting - 1/4" NPT x Full Flow Male Plug: Automotive
http://www.amazon.com/Camco-59853-Pr...G8X9P4W1JJMTA6
Anderson Metals Brass Pipe Fitting, Coupling, 1/4" x 1/4" Female Pipe: Industrial Pipe Fittings: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific


I got the Air connector at Harbor Freight last year
There are a couple different styles of air connectors so I bought a pack of both so one of them would fit the chassis connector. I do not recall the style or specs other than it was the 'automotive' rather than 'commercial' style.

I'd recommend putting in a shut off valve as well.
If the quick connect ever fails you'll know why.
Just my 2 cents.

The Berks already come with a shut off valve at the quick connect point.

I may be wrong but i would not think the quick disconnect fittings would be the same for LP and air. Not talking about the thread size. Those would be 1/4 NPT.

I've have a Weber Q and have considered getting the adapters to take advantage of the existing propane on my TT. Could you clarify where each of the pieces mentioned below go. Some are self explanatory but some I'm not 100% sure.

My trailer has a capped end on the propane line which I assume is where I'd tap into the propane.

Thanks

Paul

He asked two different questions.
That's why I gave two different answers.
I didn't think they would both be the same either.

By size do mean thread size or nipple size? All rv quick disconnect BBQ NIPPLE fittings are the same size. The thread size is 1/4 NPT The main gas line is 1/2 NPT.

And don't trust the quick connects to seal all that great even tho' the grill is turned off. Drained a 30# cyl. in 3 days. $26 lesson. Install and use the shut off valve.

I do too now!

In fact, I turn the shut off valve off first and then the grill.

Thank you. I have seen a RV female quick disconnect that did not have a shut off valve.Guess there may be some out there but not for RV's.

My Flagstaff has a shut off right at the camper qd fitting. It has an interlock that the valve has to be off to connect/disconnect.

I was able to find the LP male adapter locally at an RV dealer cheaper than amazon. Manufacturer is JR Products part number 07-30445 1/4 " MPT x Male Quick Disconnect
JR Products :: Home

The Air disconnect I did not look at yet.
