Coleman sent me a new tube, no charge. Now, thats customer service.
Btw - Seven Grills in a Land Fill is sung to the toon of Six Days on the Road - and I'm gonna make it home tonight. : No offense intended.

I'm still pondering portable grills and wondering if anyone dealt with the electric shut off with their propane system when installing an Extend a Stay or other propane T.

I do have a 4.5 lb tank and have thought of just carrying one of my home grill tanks with us. But the Extend a Stay would be nice. I don't want to refill green cans myself and don't want to toss em in the land fill with all those old warn out grills.

Thanks for all the good info.

Had RV in the shop and asked them to install one. The guy said no, no manual cutoff and he wouldn't do it. Was he over his head or is it not something that should be done with an electric regulator - perhaps pipes were no readily accessible?? I'm scratching my head over this, but haven't crawled around looking for answers.

As for grills for the road. Have to upgrade but not sure what just yet. I do want indirect heat and smoke ability. I can smoke with a gas grill - but it's getting low - 250 degree heat that's hard to achieve. All of the 10-12k btu small grills I look at seem to be over heated for their size. Anyone have a low and slow portable grill to recommend?
Hi Steve & or Annie,
One item on my list during my annual service this past April was for the shop to hookup the Extend-A-Stay that I had. Our Monaco tank has a coach center-line location and also has an electrical cutoff. I don't recall any mention of the electrical cutoff just some convoluted explanation about it could be done but would be complicated and difficult. By then we were scheduled to hit the hiway so let it go at that. Still have the Extend-A-Stay in original packaging and would still like to have it installed. I'll be looking here as to any answers that pop up.


Regards,
Tom Terrific & his wonder wife Melody

TT & WWM - thanks for the info. Pretty much what I heard as well. At least there is some agreement. I recall something about the pipes being solid, sealed fittings and the proximity of an "open" gas line / new fitting and electricity. It made some sense at the time. Don't want to blow myself up! We will see what others have to offer on this. Can't believe we are the only two.
Steve

I'm having a real issue with my new weber Q100....

Leave it at home on the stand or take it in the rv...

I know - since it just a great cooking grill, I'll just get another one - but this time the 120 http://www.amazon.com/patio-lawn-garden/dp/B0045UBBG8 with the fold out platforms to hold all the stuff I use when grilling !!!

Thanks for talking me into this one !

i have heard nothing bad about the weber q's and showed my wife them the other day at the store.because of the interest i showed and the questions she asked i will have to wait until after fathers days to see if she bought me one or if i will be buying one. probably going to go with the Q-220 if i choose one.

I have a Weber Q200. It is large enough to entertain a party and it is easy to set up. I bought an adapter hose and a 7lb tank instead of those expensive little cans of propane. 3 yrs and going strong.

That's a sweet set up! I recently learned of the toy haulers with the ramps that turn into decks. May go that route on next upgrade.

Something to think about
I am in the same boat. We're set up on a permanent site, and I mentioned to the Mrs. that I wanted to shop for a grill. In the interim, I started cooking on the open fire with a cheapie $14.00 grate that I bought at the camp store. I'm no longer looking for a grill as I've come to enjoy cooking on a fire. I am looking for a 16" round pizza stone and I will weld up a round steel cover/lid for the stone. I want to make pizza on the grill too....

Tailgate TREAGAR. We love this and fits about 8 hamburgers, rectangle grill that smokes as well as grills. Carry a small bag of wood pellets, no mess! Amazon.com carries for about 250.00. Fits nicely in our basement of our 2003 Winnegabo 35u.
