Just FYI - I did install a louvered floor under my propane tank to store extra hoses and stuff that could get dirty. I think it's way cool and would show a photo if I knew how.

I also tapped into the LPG line under the refrigerator where there was a plug in a T and ran rigid pipe over to the bulkhead fitting in the floor. I installed a regular gas valve and a quick disconnect fitting so I can run the flex hose thru the floor to the BBQ. Local LPG outfit was helpful in getting regulator to work on low pressure.

Hello Vagabondman- Exactly WHAT did your LPG outfit do to get the regulator to work on low pressure? When I had the dealer installed my line they tapped in AFTER the coach regulator- not what I'd have done. Now I'm afraid my Weber Q regulator will have to be removed- which I can do, but would rather not.

Thanks, Rick Coleman

Rick, my gas connection is after the regulator and my Weber Q works fine without removing its regulator, ie it is double regulated. Try it. May work for you also.

Thanks- That's very encouraging! I'll have a chance to try it in about a week. It was all I could do in posing my question to not make a joke about "over-regulating" and that being the job of government, not our Alpines. Looks like I got weak!

I tapped into the tee in the basement under the refrigerator exactly like Vagabondman did. I then took the regulator off the weber q and installed a quick disconnect so that I can simply quick connect the regulator back on the q when I need another source for propane. If you leave the unit with two regulators you do not get the full BTU's out of the burner

Sure hope you will find a way to send a picture of the louvered floor. Did you have do any welding? I want install a louvered floor also. But do NOT want to have anything fall off at 60 miles per hour.

RICK,

THEY REPLACED THE FLOW RESTRICTOR WITH A LARGER ONE. APPARENTLY THE PROBLEM WAS COMMON FOR THEM AS THEY HAD ALL THE RIGHT STUFF TO GET ME GOING.

OK, LET'S SEE IF THIS WORKS. NO WELDING REQUIRED; THE SHELF WAS PRE FORMED AND BOLTS INTO PLACE.

Did you remove your tank to install the shelf from above, or did you install from the bottom?

IT FASTENS FROM THE BOTTOM - AN EASY JOB IF YOU USE THE JACKS TO LIFT THE RIG A LITTLE.

Frank, can you tell how thick of material was used and whether you covered the whole section?

Also who did the louvers? A Yakima firm?

The pictures really look good. How much air flow did you build into the floor? Thanks for all the details.

Will be in Yakima probably in Oct or Sept 07 as my siblings live there. Mike E.
