I have been to several propane shops and none of them were any help in providing what you have described as the correct fix. Thanks. I was in Camping World last week in St Augustine and could not find the appropriate hose, but being a male, I didn't ask anybody. Takes a long time to get smarter. Jim
Jim, CW and the local gas companies were no help when I was looking for answers either. I found what I needed on Ebay. It was a sixteen foot stainless steel braided LP hose. The seller was: Greatdealsupply. The Ebay item 251272579705 transaction 1231687877015. I don't know if those numbers are still good as it was back in May of 2013. They had quite a few different length hoses available.

Jim, If you go on Ebay and do a search for "propane, natural gas line 16 ft stainless steel braided hose LP", the one I purchased is the first one at the top of the page. It has 3/8" female flare fittings on both ends. You can get the flare adaptors at HD. Let me remind you that you can't connect this line to a device that already has it's own built in regulator as the QD on the A$ is already regulated down to 11" of water column. Hope this helps.

Ukdude and Joe, thank you for the leads. Based on the info, it appears that my existing hot plate and BBQ that both run from the little green bottles, may not work if I try to make them run from the regulated source at the drivers side outlet. I'll try and pawn that stuff off on my kids and start over again. That is once I secure the parts. Jim

What are the fittings!?

I'm apparently an idiot, but I can't seem to connect my Webber Q100 to the 2014 Interstate's external gas line. The airstream, as mentioned, has a quick-connect jack and a provided hose that ends in a female nut that appears to want a ˝" male thread. The Webber grill has a regulator that ends in a female jack that looks to want a ⅞" male thread.

I have a hose for the webber that ends in the large, green plastic female fitting that treads onto standard LP tanks, which are about 1.25" t
male (the same fittings as are on the LP tanks included in the AS).

So, I could disconnect one of the tanks in the AS and connect to the Webber, but that seems to defeat the purpose of having the quick disconnect jack on the exterior of the unit.

Where can I find what these connections are called so I can get the proper adapters? It seems I should be able to get a male-to-male adapter to connect the included hose from AS to the Webber hose. I've seen about 7 different types of fitting names, which everyone but me must know what they mean, since I can't find any description of them.

Why the heck is this so complicated? Hahah.

Did you check Camping World? They might have either the fittings or stove/grill that will work.

You might check out this "mountable" propane grill from Camping World. It comes configured for use with the low pressure propane system such as the one on the AI but can be adapted to high pressure bottles when and if necessary. The mounting bracket makes it even more useful.

You need to take the regulator off the Weber and attach a fitting where the regulator used to be. You already have a regulator on the AI - so propane is already low pressure.

The male fitting on the Weber grill, if I remove the regulator, is much smaller than the female fitting at the end of the Airstream hose. It's maybe half the size. If I know what these crazy fittings are called, I can probably get an adapter.

I'd take the Airstream hose and the grill regulator to Home Depot and look for one or more fittings that could make the transition between the grill and the hose.

Oops, 72 shark beat me.

Take both pieces to a Home Depot or Lowes or other plumbing supply place and they will be happy to sell you what you need.

However, if you buy a quick disconnect from CW, BEWARE. I bought one and put it in line where the flexible hose from the tank connected to the hard line on the A-frame. It was marked low pressure but is actually a high pressure fitting and would not mate with my grill.
