rssnape,
Thanks for the post. This is just what I have been looking for. I do not see a 20 foot low pressure hose? I only see a 12 foot line?? Which one did you order?

Call them with the number from your quick connect fitting on your Coach. They are very helpful and hooked me up with a 20 footer and the pigtail for the grill.
What's really great is if you have anything else you want to use like a heater or fire pit. You just get an extra pigtail for each and then it's just a quick connection between them no separate hoses for each.

I have a Coleman Roadtrip gas grill and the customer service tells me it only works with high pressure tanks. Does this mean none of the low pressure options mentioned work using my RV internal tank without modification. I am willing to by any appropriate hose or fitting. Just dont want to carry any external propane with me.

I had the regulator taken off my Coleman Road Trip and I had the BBQ plumbed into my gas line after the tank regulator. I then had the regulator reattached to a spare hose with a quick fit so I can use a gas bottle at home if I wish, or if I want to sell the Coleman. Works great. Agree about not wanting to carry extra bottles.
My reasons for not being able to stay longer in one place are a) grey tank fills, b) black tank fills, c) run out of fresh water, and then not enough LPG is WAY down the list.

I have had no problems. If anything, the BBQ is a little too efficient but it was like that on the gas bottles anyway. My Road Trip packs away really neatly if I take the plastic leg off, fits perfectly into a side locker. Spare plates/grills, and about ten feet of gas line, quick fit connect at the bottle end, good to go. In New Zealand, the fittings for everything cost me around $85, but I am sure you can do better in the USA. I put the fittings on myself, as long you test the joins for leaks with some soapy water, there is not much you can do wrong. The reason I connected after the regulator was I didn't like the idea of high pressure in the hose, the original BBQ fittings went straight from the gas bottle to the regulator.

Sorry, should have said - I got the lines and joins made up professionally (hence the cost, they assume you are loaded with money with a big MH) but connecting into the gas line on the bus was a breeze.

finally have an expert at least look at what you have done before you turn it on.

You can use the Coleman on low pressure LP with the Coleman Regulator removed and the Coleman attached AFTER your onboard LP regulator or you can use the Coleman on high pressure LP with the Coleman Regulator (installed on the grill) and the hose attached BEFORE the onboard LP regulator. In either case, appropriate adapters/fittings/hoses are required.

The real question is: How comfortable are you in making modifications, attaching fittings, and testing LP connections?

If your answer is "not so comfortable", you should contact an LP supplier/service provider or RV center and let them do the work.

This is the reason i just carry a 20lb tank in the basement for the Weber Q, no issues, no hassles, just hook-n-cook. Been carrying propane tanks for years and have never had an issue yet. As my onboard tank is on the drivers side and it would be a pain to have to plumb in another outlet curbside I'll just stick with the xtra tank.

Me too! ... because:

1) no more or less dangerous than a home BBQ;
2) it's cheap;
3) doesn't require a trip in the RV if you have a toad to fetch a refill;
4) goes anywhere you want to cook;
5) you can take the whole thing home and use it at the house;
6) you can use it for tailgating independent of the RV;
7) requires nothing more than a commonly available hose/adapter; and
8) did I mention it's cheap !!

The only downsides are that the full tank weighs 37Lb. and occupies about the same space as a 5 gal. paint bucket... but it does contain additional LP beyond what you normally carry onboard.
