Outside grill hose

We tried out the outside grill this week but had a heck of a time getting the quick connect on. The hose could be about an inch longer and it would have been easier. We pulled on it pretty good. Tried to look at the connection inside, but it is enclosed in a box near the wheel well. All glued together. Anyone else have a problem with the short propane hose?

No problem with ours.

Guess you will need to splice in a small piece of hose so as to extend.

Wouldn't want to pull those very much.

No problem with ours either. Have to move it all the way over to the edge pretty much.

We had it all the way to edge. I wonder if we can put a 90 elbow on grill end pointed to trailer. That would probably give some us some room.

Mine was the same way. It just quite wasn't long enough to make hooking it up easy.

Finally I removed the panels to expose it from the inside and found the manufacturer had run a 110v wire through and the propane hose was wrapped on the other side of the wire, causing it to appear about 6 inches shorter. I was able to pull the hose back into the camper, pull it around the 110v wire and back through the wall to the outside.

Plenty of length now!

The other thing to check if you have difficulty connecting is that (for me at least) the position of the shutoff lever at the fitting on the end of the hose makes a difference. If I remember correctly, it will only connect properly if the lever is off (perpendicular to hose). If the lever is on (parallel to hose), the sleeve of the fitting will not attach. Might seem obvious you wouldn't want to connect the fitting with the valve already open, but if the main gas (at tank) is not turned on yet, it is easy to not realize the significance of the fitting shutoff.

FWIW...

Fix short outside grill connection with new Angled connector

We fixed our "too short" propane line connection from Aframe trailer to outside grill by replacing the connectors with angled ones. This provided enough extra length for a good fit without strain on the line. Sorry we don't remember the exact connectors we bought.

Mine was long enough but I did this just because I wanted the hose out of the way. Found a brass 90 with the correct thread type for each side. Makes it slightly trickier getting it into the mouse hole for storage but it fits.

You can just add a y splitter for more length
