Exactly. If anyone bought an Extend-a-Stay or a Stay-a-While kits, the extension hose to the grill is a high pressure hose. So if you build your own, you definitely want to use HP hose. Tying a grill after the coaches regulator leaves you with no regulation at the grill.

The valve set up cost $65 and is rated at 250 psig . The hose was $49 and is rated at 350 psi

Run both my Weber Q220(with regulator removed from the BBQ) and propane campfire through 15- 20' natural gas hoses available at Home Depot tee'd in after the tank regulator with no problems. (Fourth rv done this way). Much safer imho.

How do you regulate the flame on the grill with no regulation? You know, like searing a steak or just keeping something warm.

Regulator

Notice tee after tank regulator in description not upstream.
The regulator is at the tank 11"wc pressure, then there is the control knob on the bbq.

This was my plan to tee off the manifold after the regulator . I was unable to locate what I needed. The kits you mentioned say for natural gas only so I didn't use them .

BBQ extension

I used natural gas extension hose which is CSA/ UL approved and comes with q-connect fitting. See no reason it can't be used for propane. It's on the low pressure side of regulator. Actually tied 2 in together for my propane campfire to set it far away from coach. Used 1 for our Weber 220. Had to buy some brass reducer fittings to tie into manifold where bbq regulator was removed.
If my setup was not buried out in the snow I would attach some pictures.

Convert WeberQ to use RV onboard propane

My RV has an onboard quick connect for Propane and I didn't like the Flame King grill that came with it so I converted a Weber Q 1200 to use the connect. I also modified the Q1200's regulator that I removed so I can still use the throw away's if I have a need to use it away from the RV. The instructions, part numbers and pictures are all in the attached PDF. The cost is about $30, easy to do and you end up able to use your WeberQ by the hose or by the bottle as you choose.
