Good info to have and that the regulator at the grill was removable.

I was thinking about doing something similar only before the regulator. I have a Weber Q 1200.
There is an Extend a Stay that 2 ports. One for an appliance and one for another tank connection.
Because it is before the regulator I can leave the regulator on my Weber. I an not sure what patrs I need to do quick disconnects for the hookup to the Weber on the grill and the line on the extend a stay. Any help from more savvy propane/plumbing folks out there?

I think it's safer installing after the regulator. Here's a video of the basic install,

TR4,
Help me understand why it would be safer after the RV regulator.
Thanks

Some people will install before the regulator. I read the high pressure side can have over 100 psi and felt it was safer to install on the regulated side in case of a major failure.

The pressure in any propane tank is only a function of the temperature, not size of tank. That means protecting the Weber Grill regulator from coach side propane tank pressure is no more necessary than with the small tank you normally use. Also the propane regulator on the grill is expecting full propane tank pressure (no matter what size the tank is), so won't work properly if getting low pressure regulated gas.

I use a 1 gallon propane tank with the adapter hose Weber sells for the Q grills.

Thanks WYRon
This was my thought also.
As I see it there are 2 options for ther Weber Q hooking up to the RV tank.
1) Leave the regulator on the Q and then place a T (or an Extend A Stay option) on the RV before the RV regulator. Then utilize the included hose from the Extend a Stay to hook up to the port on the Extend a stay and directly into the regulator on the Q. I would like to utilize quick connects on both ends of that hose (not sure what adapters would be needed or are called). This option would allow me to use the grill elsewhere using the small propane cans if I wanted without needed to put the regulator back on.
2) remove the regulator from the Q. Connect a quick disconnect where the regulator was on the Q. Place a T after the RV regulator. Utilize a quick disconnect on that T and use a hose with quick disconnects on both ends.

My preference is option 1. I am just not sure what adapters I need to convert the threaded pipe fittings to be quick disconnects. If anyone can assist with that I think I have my solution.
Thanks!

I've used the Road Trip grill for years--a bit large to set-up at every stop and clean up isn't as easy as I would like. But with the inter-changeable grills/plates, it is a breeze for large-group meals, especially breakfast. As far as I could tell, the regulator is not removable, and we also use the "camp fire in a can" so needed hi-pressure propane port from MH. It was a bit hard to procure the parts but its doable--don't like the idea of "quick-connects" when dealing with hi-pressure propane. Prefer Acme Nut connections with internal failure protection and manual shut-off valves.....just me....

We have the baby Weber, Q-100 I think. It and the folding aluminum cart fit well into one of the bays. My only complaint is that it is difficult to accurately regulate the heat. My better half likes her "cow" well done. And I have a hard time turning it down enough so that there is absolutely no trace of red inside, while not burning the outside. I have learned to prop open the lid to let some of the heat out while, being better able to keep an eye on the contents. Also, I was going to work on one of those extend-a-stay hookups, but have found that I prefer the grill well away from the coach, and several of those disposable bottles lasts us the entire snowbird season if I unhook the bottle after each grilling session.

Also use the Weber Q1200. I was going to plumb in a quick-connect line from the driver's side propane tank but decided against it because I didn't want to be tripping over the long hose. I tote around a 20# tank that runs the grill and fire pit.

Weber Q2000! It's a great grill. We have the folding stand too. Both fit nicely in our bay.

I don't remember saying anything about tank size. I was asked why I felt it was safer to install after the regulator. Both ways will work, I prefer to use the low pressure side.
