Propane grills for low pressure connection

I recently purchased a 2012 classic with the low pressure gas quick connect and have been searching for a nice stinless steel grill that is made for low pressure. Neither airstream or my dealer was much help. Has anyone figured out some good options?

We have a grill regulator that we use for testing Airstream appliances, and it measures the same 11" water column pressure as the AS regulator. Could you just hook up the grill to the low pressure gas you already have?

Of course, observe all safety measures when doing this.

unclear

I keep getting conflicting ino - the typical small grills meant for the little propane bottles are supposedly high pressure the regulators on there will not work with the quick disconnect - I could be wrong - i am told that people who sell the grill should know - but you would be surprised at how little help they provide - and airstream should have som suggestions since they put this thing on - but they do not

I suspect you're seeing liability issues at work here.

We have a Weber grill (charcoal) that uses small(8 lb.) jugs to start the charcoal. I frequently use these small jugs for the gas fire logs that we use when there's a fire ban on, while campling.

If it were me, I would buy an adapter hose at WalMart, hook it up and forget about it.

We have a Holland Companion grill that we love. I don't know anything about the pressure, but do know you can call Holland and they will know. They are in Holly Springs, NC and are very nice and helpful. They make'm, and they know what it takes to make'm work.

Best $250 I ever spent. Saved me a divorce!!

Most gas grills have a built in regulator. What you are after is one that either the regulator can be taken off, or does not have one. The grill will not heat up very good (for steaks!) with a second regulator being used along with the one already on the trailer.JMHO

Almost all propane grills,firepits,lanterns have a regulator attached to the unit. When you connect with your quick connect after the tanks on your AS you then have two regulators which will not have enough pressure to run those devices. I had the same issue and the folks at the propane supply store said they run into this every day. If you can remove the regulator from your grill or firepit you are good to go. Remember ony ONE regulator. You will probably void the warranty if you remove the rgulator from your device.

Here is a grill for rv applications. Just plug it in Not able to say good or bad about it, just thought I would show it. I myself like more of a smoker, so I made one up using a charcoal grill and put a gas burner in it.
