Weber Q 200

Recently bought a Weber Q200. Put an adapter so I can hook it up to my on-board 7.5gal tank. It is hooked into tank after the regulator and thru the regulator built on the Weber as well. Is this the correct way to hook up? Thanks in advance for the replies! Steve

1 regulator should suffice. I've heard of people having issues going thru 2.

You won't have sufficient gas flow with two regulators, and no heat. Some of the Weber BBQ's can be re-piped without the regulator.

I have the Weber Q120 and it would not work with two regulators. I took the regulator off the grill and it works perfect now.

Does anyone have directions on removing the built on regulator on the Q200?

On my 200, I removed the knob, and 2 small screws that held t he regulator to the black metal bracket. There's a nut that holds the gas valve to the plastic, under the knob. I've attached some pics where I have converted mine to use with a hose that I use for my Camp Chef stove. I just bought a quick connect male plug that I may switch it out to.

Sorry, I didn't take any pics with the regulator still attached, but it's pretty straightforward.

I have the small one, but these should help you.

I have had my Weber Baby Q for 5 years now and have always used it with both regulators attached and have had no problems at all. I use the 20 lb. tank at home and the small screw on bottles when camping. Maybe something has changed since I bought mine.

This is how I use mine.
I also carry the 20 pound tank with "bottle eliminator" hose to use when my bottles are empty and a "bottle refilling adapter" if I get stuck (like I did when a hungry squirrel chewed a hole in my eliminator hose when my bottle was empty.

If you have never used on it is not as easy as the instructions make it look.

The empty "bottle" has to be frozen to make it cold enough to get a decent fill.
The 20 pound tank must be inverted to you get liquid out of the tank valve and not gas.

The adapter must be put on the tank valve and the bottle on that. Since the typical "camping bottle" is wider than than the metal collar above the fill port, you will need to use the edge of a picnic table or something to support the tank while the bottle fills and pressures equalize. Reaching under all that to open the valve can also be a challenge.

Hey Laydback. Thanks for the pics. Got mine done yesterday and will put male quick connect on today. Where did you get the lights and lever you installed in storage bay? Have only one light in my huge compartment which really sucks. Also would like to se if I can install a lever there as well as on my entry door as I had on my past 5ver. Thanks, Steve

Glad to be of assistance.

Anzo USA LED Truck Bed Lights 531049 | eBay

I got the lights cheaper, so shop around, maybe even try AutoZone. I wired the switches so that whatever door opened would turn on the lights. I had to bend the lever to have an offset and be in the plane I needed it, in reference to the door swing. I plan to do this on the new 5er, but since I plan to mount a flip/swing out tv in the basement, I'll have to make some sort of override at that door. I may also consider the LED strip/tape for the lighting as well.

Found this site that's really reasonable on propane hoses and fittings.

Hey Laydback,
Where did you get that short pigtail for your "Q". Looked online and all they have is the ones with the fitting to attach to the tank. Need one with 1/4 on both ends. Thanks, Steve
