Gas grille set up

I have a Vibe 272bhs and have recently purchased a portable weber gas grille to take along camping. I was wondering if I can use the quick disconnect propane connection at the rear of the trailer to feed the grille.

Yes you can and I have done the same for my Weber Q200. I can use a bulk tank (normal 20#), 1# disposable, or the RV. I just need to hook up the proper line to go with the supply that I'm using at the time.

A search will give you all that you need but I got most of my "stuff" from "caloreequipment dot com". Very helpful people to work with.

Yes you can BUT you must remove the gas regulator on the Weber.
The gas line going to the rear of your rig is down stream of the main gas regulator. You cannot use the regulator on your grill and reduce it further.

The fix is very simple. Just un-screw the regulator on the weber grill, you may need to purchase a brass connector, like I did, that goes from the grill to the new lp hose you purchase with a quick disconnect on one end.

Your all set. It will now work great for you. The plus side is you will save $$$ on not having to buy those small 1 lb. cans of lp gas to hook up to the grill.

Looks like you got the information you were asking for I will add I was skeptical about using the outside grill that came with my rig, however I now just love it what a great addition.

Another option is to get the adapter hose to go from a bulk tank to the grill. It works well and is easier and cheaper than the conversion.

Ok. I have the hose that goes from the RV quick connect to the Webber grill. I just need to replace the regulator with a fitting. So all I need is 1/8 female to 1/4 male?
