We also carry a hibachi syle charcoal grill in addition to the Coleman RT. Sometimes time and convenience is not an issue and you just need to grill steaks on mesquite. We've had neighbors come over and ask to use the grill when we were done cooking

I have a hibachi on a tripod that I use for my DO cooking. Yes, it doesn't answer the grilling question, but I could use it for grilling. Did do great for just Two people.

we use both a coleman roadtrip and a weber q200.

The roadtrip is an excellent outdoor stove. put some pans on it and cook to your hearts content.
Don't try to grille anything on it, the fire is too close to the grates and it will burn it up dead.

Our Q200 couldn't make enough heat to melt ice.

Eventually, I drilled out the gas jet in the q200 (more power, Scotty!!!)
Now it makes some heat.

We use em connected to the coach propane with a pair of extenda stays.

We had a similar problem with our Q220.

Turned out to be a problem with our supply hose.

I replaced the old hose and the grill can again reach 500 degrees.

That will melt most ice....

There are fancier grills with lots of bells and whistles but we're taking about GRILLING and NOTHING beats a Weber Q. The 100 series is perfect for a few people, the 200 series for larger families or groups.

ps... Add an extend-a-stay with the 10' hose for the Q... can't get any easier.
Ditto to what is said here. Rook

Chances are the valve/regulator has an ubstruction. I have replaced mine twice in 8 years. I don't know why, but when I leave my Q in the motorhome storage cabinet through the winter, the valve/regulator can get obstructed somehow. I can't blow air through it. Maybe miosture and freezing temps damage it. Maybe it is simply lack of use (most likely). When the grill was my full-time house grill, I never had this problem, even when it was parked outside on my back porch year round.

The good news is that the valve/regulator is cheap and easy to replace.

Cheers,
Rick

I replaced the regulator first.

The problem remained when using the hose.

I tried a disposable bottle, and the problem disappeared.

So, I bought a new hose. Problem solved.

Gotta start checking dumpsters instead of spending $150 for a grill.

I prefer charcoal grilling over gas, I'm not in a hurry when we take out the 'bago, charcoal gives me a chance to have a beverage or two while it's getting ready to cook.
However, I bought a cheapie $29 gas grill at Target for this trip because I was afraid of total burn bans out west, Grand Canyon had one last month which included charcoal grills. It works great, the only thing I dislike about it is the disposable canisters which I think are a huge waste and detrimental to the environment. Not that I'm an enviro-nazi but I hate to see those little bottles taking up space in landfills. I may get a 5lb refillable bottle to use with it.

We will be doing the same, we like it so much and the full size gas grill on the patio is just more size than we need for the 2 of us. Should just buy another but don't want to spend the cash, need it for fuel!!

I agree with the cheapies. We do very little outdoor cooking, so our $20 WalMart special has lasted for several years and the small gas bottles seem to last forever at our rate of cooking.

But if I had a $370K motorhome, I'd probably have an equivalent grill. Gotta look good for the RVing neighbors.
