Tiffin upgrades

Have 2014 Tiffin Allegro RED, 34FQA.
After visiting many campgrounds on this road trip, there are a few upgrades that I would like to add. Looking for brands and advice.

1. Slideout/rollout trays that fit in the bottom storage compartments. Now me or wife have to crawl inside to retrieve items. Have seen some coaches with trays that slide out of storage space. Any idea of manufacturers or costs? Can an adept handyman install them themselves?

2. Exhaust extension. vertical stack, for the diesel generator exhaust, so the it is quieter and doesn't exhaust on the ground, sometimes blowing dust. Any advice on manufacturers?

3. Installing a TEE after the outlet side of the propane tank regulator, with one leg going to a portable bar-b-que. Do I still need the small regulator that comes with the bar-b-que, or is the one on the coach sufficient?

Diesel generator runs smoky for the first 5 minutes, and then smells running very rich (unburned fuel) when running at high altitudes, (9,000 feet), Any adjustments that can be made to lean the system out? (Remembering the old automobile carburetors).

#1: Yes, you can be the trays, but I don't know how easy it would be installing in your coach. In normal installations, they're just bolted through the floor. Also know that they will take some of the height away from your basement storage.

#2: Google "Gen-Turi" or "Genturi". That is the name of the device that you're seeking.

#3: Google "Extend-a-stay". That allows you to add a larger propane tank. I'm not sure if you can use the "tee" for a grill also, but it will be a start in your search.

We too have a 2014 34 QFA, and really like it. As you have stated, the storage space is somewhat limited on this model.
1. We use plastic tubs whenever possible. sliding trays would be nice.
2. Haven't thought of this one yet.
3. We are in the process to get one and install it. Just waiting for cooler weather to do the install.
4. Sounds like you need someone to look at your generator.

Please keep us posted on what mods you do end up making on your 34 QFA.

Do a search for MorRyde trays. They are available in different widths and lengths to fit about any application. You will lose a little storage height but it's well worth the convenience of pull out access. They are easy to install with a couple of bolts or screws into the plywood flooring.

Yes, you will still need the regulator on the grill. The tee off of the propane tank with the Extend-A-Stay kit is un-regulated so you will still utilize the built in regulator on the grill.

3. You are correct to use a Tee and an angle cock certified for WAG (water,air,gas). Just put the tee between the regulator and the flex hose connection. That is after the regulator and on the low pressure side. This eliminates the need for your BBQ's regulator.


(I personally would not put anything on the high pressure side.)

Put the valve between the tee and quick connect that comes with an outdoor natural gas BBQ grill connection kit, available at most big box stores, and attach the other end of the hose to your BBQ.

When you sell or trade your rig it uninstalls and installs easily. Be sure to use the correct pipe dope and check for leaks. Here's a pic of one on it's third rig: photo should be rotated to the right.(I figured out how to rotate the pic after posting. Sorry)

Correction: that's a WOG (water, oil,gas) valve.

If installed after regulator as pictured regulator on Weber should be removed. Best way imho speaking as a 40 year gas utility employee.
