Pictures of quick disconnect gas line mounting.

OK, here is my first post on what I have done to our 2004 25 Classic we just bought. If this has already been done, I apologize. I can also say that if you are using a barbecue unit that has a regulator, your BTU output is way less than what it should be. I tried just connecting the new line to the barbecue unit that had the regulator. You could feel the heat, but you could not see any flames. I then connected a regular camping propane tank (that has higher pressure) to it the way it was supposed to be used. What a difference, You could feel more heat and you could see the flames coming up. So keeping the regulator is a no - no! You need to replace it with a regular valve.

You have a regulator at your tanks now - having another at the BBQ only reduces the flow of the gas. You can connect that QD dirctly to the BBQ without a regulator as you are already on the low pressure side.

BTW - there are adaptors at Walmart that connect on the bottom of the regulator and reconnect to your lines that save you from having to cut and flare the tubing - cost under $30.

Nice neat job, bubble test for leaks?

Yes!! and noooo bubbles! lol I saw that connection, but for me it was not a good idea. This mounting is to the rear of the wheels, so I wanted to tap in to the gas line as close as possible.
