Adding a connection for an outside cooking burner

Any suggestions on adding a quick connection to the propane tanks on a 1996 34 AS. I would like to cook outside with a 2 / 3 burner propane stove. Has anyone done this and what would you suggest?

Sure. Both propane tanks feed into the regulator then down a hose to an elbow connecting the copper tubing in the trailer. Replace the elbow with a "T" and a shut off valve. Use whatever fittings are convenient after the valve. You wont need a regulator on your BBQ since the LP is already at trailer pressure, i.e. 11" water pressure or about .3PSI. Very convenient. There used to be a post here with a pic.

A 20# LP tank full of propane is about $15, and a 1 pound can of the stuff is $2. You save the amount of the cost of the tank ($35 at Camping World) with your first fill-up.

If you use the adapter "T", then you will use the standard regulator that came with your BBQ since you will be getting unregulated LP from the tank.

I installed a "T" in the line attached to the belly just aft of the front door with a quick disconnect with integral ball valve. The QD is a self sealing unit. My local propane dealer made me a 12' hose with two male disconnect fittings. I use a Weber Baby Q and removed the regulator from the gas control valve since the trailer connection was now low pressure. A female QD on the BBQ valve allows me to quickly connect to the trailer. The propane guys also made the fittings that allow me to use the 1# or 20# bottle with the original regulator all with QD's if I'm away from my trailer. Eventually I'd like to use this setup for a propane converted generator.

I added a T after the regulator on my tanks, providing regulated gas pressure. From there I added a 10' or 12' hose with a shut off and quick connect. I use this for my generator and BBQ. I left the regulators on the BBQ and generator as it doesn't matter if you have two regulators , the first one will regulate, the second just pass through. I can also use the hose on an unregulated device as well. The hose stores easily under the tank cover.

Be careful about leaving your Propane extension hose out at night, Raccoons gnawed/punctured mine one night in Jackson Center, OH.

I certainly don't claim to be an expert on propane regulators, but.... good friends have the same setup as me with the exception that the regulator is still on their bbq - my burgers cook in half the time that theirs take.

Can someone tell me where to purchase the fittings to attach to the BabyQ BBQ and the propane carb on my USCarb / Yamaha 2400? I'll be going from a T-fitting under the dual tank regulator.


Thanks!

My quick disconnect fittings came from fairviewfittings.com. You can't actually purchase the fittings from them as they are the supplier, but you can see their offerings, call them for a local distributer which may be your RV sales/service center.
