Question remote propane hook up outside fifth wheel

So have a remote propane hook up on the right rear of my fifth wheel, it has the handle to turn the propane off, plus it is a quick connect style, as I understand it from an RV dealer it is plumbed into the regulator on the tanks, so I would need to find an appliance that is unregulated, otherwise the pressure would be too low to run an appliance, does anyone make an unregulated appliance to use with these quick connect systems?

I'm not sure what you're thinking of using? A barbecue? Most devices I can think of would not be regulated themselves. They would require propane from a regulated supply?

When I bought my 98 Safari Serengeti 3 years ago it came with a WeberQ grill that hooked to hose from the RV propane tank. I've always complained about the low flame on the WeberQ. Just recently I had an "aha" moment when I saw mentioned on another board that connecting in such a way usually didn't work very well due to having two regulators in series - one on the tank and one on the grill. So.... bought the necessary fittings to eliminate the grill regulator, connected it up, and it was WORSE! I'm going to put the regulator back on the grill, then try using it with one of the small disposable tanks that is was designed for - I've never used it that way and need to see how high the flame will go. Can't do it right now - the coach is in for service.

I got tired of those little disposable propane bottles for my Webber grill. I added a valve and quick connect after the MH regulator. Got a length of hose to run to the grill with a valve at the end of the hose to control the flame at the grill to which I screwed in the propane jet after removing it from the Webber regulator. It works great !!

Chuck - Am I understanding correctly - you eliminated BOTH the Weber regulator and the Weber valve? I eliminated just the regulator and was still using the Weber valve. Maybe that's my problem.

we have a RVQ Grill that hooks up to the coach just in the way you stated. Now it does have a kind of regulator (not like the regular grills though) so not sure what you dealer was talking about. With an on and off handle. Also it connects kind of like an air hose quick connector. The grill hangs on the side of the coach. Ours is a few years old so I don't knw where you would get the exact model from but the company made two sizes and we have the bigger one. Ours orginally was used on our 2006 Eagle fifth wheel by jayco.

All appliances are eighter 30 or 50 grams preasure, regulators make the 1 to 8 Atm into the 30 or 50 grams presure.
Look at the templates of appliances for their requirements.
NEVER connect a low presure appliance (BBQ or whatever) directly to the high (inregulated) propane bottle/otainer.

Yes, I only used the jet that I screwed into my own valve. My grill is the small Webber Go Anywhere Grill. Here is the layout I used after teeing into the system AFTER the regulater. Ball Valve, quick connect, 10' hose, quick connect, small valve with the jet screwed into it.
CAVIATE: Use only propane rated hose and hardware.

We have the Weber Baby Q and had to remove the regulator and get a fitting that would let it hook to the propane remote connection on the patio side of the coach. We went to a propane store (American Propane in N. Okla. City). They fashioned a 12 ? ft. hose with the appropriate connections so we can connect and disconnect easily and move it around outside.
