Barbecue hook up

On our Monaco, there is a quick disconnect outlet for hooking up a bbq. Can anybody tell me what type of fitting I need to hook up a Weber portable bbq? Is there a ready made hose/fitting/regulator that I can look for?

Ray-

It would help for you to post two pictures of the quick-connect fitting: One close-up, and a second from farther away, showing where it is located on the coach and gas line.

What you need will be different depending on the fitting type and whether it is located before or after the gas pressure regulator.

Your Weber Q should have a built-in regulator. Ours is under the right handle, attached to the flame-adjustment dial. Please confirm it is there on your Q.

I'm not aware of any Coaches coming with a factory coupler for an external barbeque. I think a previous owner must have installed it - which means it could be any brand/size.

This is type I installed on my Coach. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

On my setup, the 25-ft flexible propane hose (also from Amazon) comes off the factory line that feeds the cooktop (and refrigerator if you don't have a residential fridg). Since that propane is already regulated by the Coach propane regulator, you need to remove the regulator that is on the barbeque now (you don't want to regulate the pressure at the RV and at the barbeque).

I also use the Weber Q. it is not difficult to remove the regulator and install the quick coupler. I just coil up the hose in the basement when not in use. You could also put a disconnect on each end of the flexible hose if you don't want it permanently attached to the coach.

I had the exact same BBQ as you. Gave it to my son. Kinda wish I kept it.

My coach came from the factory with a BBQ coupler. It is tied in AFTER the regulator, so you will need to take the regulator off of your BBQ, unless they tied your's in before the regulator. The BBQ won't run going though 2 regulators.

Here's what I got for the hose. They have all different lengths.

I took my entire set up down to a propane supplier to get everything set up properly.

Thanks, that is exactly what I needed to know. We have a great propane dealer nearby that also has a dump facility so I will take the rig to them and let them appraise my situation. Great info. Thanks again.
