Hi Digz! If your bbq has its own regulator and you would normally use the small screw-on propane cans you can use this tee:

Keep in mind that it goes between the tank valve and the rv's regulator. Then you can use an extension hose to reach your bbq.
I used this set-up and it worked fine... However! Watch out if you remove the hose without burning off what's in it! The propane inside is actually still in liquid form because it's unregulated and it could dangerously dribble out. #iknowfromexperience

Roger Roll has it right, I installed one of these and use it everything out in rv. Easy to install, comes with short hose and 12' hose, on amazon.

Are you looking for a kit to enable a grill to connect to an existing quick connect propane connection on your RV ... or are you looking for a kit to install a quick connect propane connection on your RV that has none?

While it's not difficult to hook them up - it's often not a simple "grab a kit" and make the connection. Seems like most of the factory installed quick connect propane "spigots" on RVs are "post regulator" - meaning it's low pressure propane at the quick connect source on the RV. If you're planning on using that - you'll likely need to make modification to the grill to eliminate the regulator that part of the grill itself (putting low pressure propane into a grill with a regulator will not work.

Keep in mind that you can't use 2 regulators to run a grill. Many people want to buy adapters to connect their home-depot grill to their quick-connect. If you already have a quick connect on the rv, you'll need to remove the regulator on the grill to make it work (as SpaceNorman pretty much said).

Camping World and some RV dealers sell several types of grills designed to work off the RV's propane pressure. The Side Kick and the Stainless steel Mountable are 2 of those.
Depending on your MH you may already have a connection setup for the grill. Mine came with it. All I had to do was add the grill and the mount on the side of the MH.
