Propane grill question

I just acquired a small gas grill as a gift and was wondering if I could hook it up to the rv gas line. There is a quick connect opening but my real question is. The grill has a regulator built into it and so does the rv. Can I just run a hose from one to the other or do I need to eliminate the grill regulator ?

The system can only work at full power with one regulator in the line. I took my grill regulator off - installed a needle valve on the hose - and pressed ahead. Others have put a T in the propane line coming directly off the tank before the tank regulator so they could access high pressure propane that is then regulated by the grill regulator. You Tube has a number of pieces on converting grills.

You will have to remove the reg from the grill and replace it with a quick couple. These couplers cannot be turned on until the coupler is connected. Available at any BBQ store or CW.

Not sure which year you have but this is from the 2016 Vista manual...

Your coach is featured with a Propane
Accessory Connection for your convenience, to
connect items such as a portable BBQ grill.
This connection is on the low pressure side of
the propane gas pressure regulator. Portable
appliances which have an additional or built-in
regulator may not operate correctly
