Unhappy LPG Regulator

I have 23 foot Keystone Travel Trailer with a couple of LPG tanks on the hitch connected to an automatic valve that supplies not only the stove, burner and water heater, but an outside "quick disconnect" outlet for a Bar-B-Que that came with the trailer. The Bar-B-Que is was too small to be of any use. Problem is, all the other Bar-B-Ques I want to purchase already have a regulator on the hose attachment. When I try to connect it to the rig, this gas outlet is already regulated. Consequently I get very little gas flow. I guess I need to find a Bar-B-Que that is not regulated to connect to the trailer. Any help the forum could be would be greatly appreciated.

Any propane appliance will come with a regulator. IMO, you simply need to put your quick disconnect fitting right on the end of the line going to the grill. This may require purchasing a longer hose.

With a little searching you can find solutions.

I know I have read lots of threads in the various forums of people using both the Weber Q220 and Coleman Roadtrip on the low-pressure LP line plumbed for the RVQ. They all involved removing the Coleman or Webers regulator and having a hose made up to adapt from the TT quick connect to the grill.

I had a hose made up from the BBQ to a male quick disconnect fitting (must be made for propane). One of the local BBQ and propane sellers made it up.

You need to put a T fitting between the tank and your present regulator. This will give you high pressure access. Now with the correct grill hose fitting on the T, you connect your grill hose there and use the grill regulator.

Thank you everyone, I think I have the solution now. I will put a tee fitting between the cylinder and where it connects to the trailer.
