How do I connect this to my RV propane tank?

When I bought my camper the previous owner was kind enough to give me a camping grill. I went to look at it today and have no idea how to connect it to anything... Picture is attached.

Please forgive me if this is a silly question, Iím a total newcomer to all of this.

Somewhere on the gas line there should be a valve and quick connect fitting. Typically those grills are not worth much. Low power, beed to be setup close to the RV, meaning smoke on the RV when trying to cook.

That's a quick connect fitting that plugs into a gas line. If you have propane, look for a larger female fitting somewhere along the bottom side of the MH. If you don't have propane, oh well, you won't need it. Good luck!

If you don't have a quick connect on your motorhome you might need to have one put in. In dealing with propane it is probably best to have someone else do it (even in my house, I will do plumbing, electrical, but will never touch my natural gas lines). I am getting ready to have one put on my motorhome, not for a grill (that is what campfire is for) but for my burner for low country boils.

Open the compartment door where the propane tank is. You might find the connector in there.
If all else fails call the previous owner and ask him or her.
Welcome to the forum.

The connection will look similar to an air hose connector.

On our previous Motor home the quick connect was on the passenger side toward the rear. It was behind a little door. But I have seen them just below the frame. Ours has a yellow end cap. That connector should snap into it.

Turns out this is in fact a propane quick connect. Iím not sure what itís already connected to...looks like 1 option might be to install this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Z511ZRL..._JnIzFb7MCKAFY

And then use the spare port for my grill...thoughts?

My thought would be to call the previous owner and ask him or her how they used the hook up and what it is hooked to now. Have you tried following the hose on the connection in the picture to see where it goes?

The adapter would work , but should not be used as a permanent connection. For a permanent installation, I would have a "T" installed and the existing line tied into it. You can then add the coupler to the other side of the "T" fitting. Extension hoses can be purchased so you can easily move the grill anywhere you want.

Yes, that is a quick disconnect. You must turn the valve handle "off" before it will release quick connector.

I've got a gas grill connection that came with mine but choose not to use it after cleaning sticky grease and soot off the side of my last camper from the PO grilling right next to it. So careful what you ask for, it's convenient to not have to mess with propane canisters but I consider it a tradeoff to having smoke blowing onto and into the RV.

This is a great point. I hadnít considered this. So much to think about with all these great responses. Thank you!!

So the alternative is a grill that uses the little gas bottles? Are those practical in terms of how long they last?
