I've been looking in to this a lot since I just had the port I talked as well. You have to remove the regulator on the Weber and you'll need a fairly long hose to bring it from the port in your AS to the opposite side of the trailer where you hang out. On the grill itself, you'll need to have a fitting to accept the hose from the trailer. There are tons of videos about this and even a company that sells a Weber conversion kit for exactly this purpose. The 4' hose I got with the port is both too short and doesn't terminate with a connection that would work in any circumstance for this purpose.

Gas Grill

Found 10ft gas hose and adapters on Amazon from Camco.
Problem solved. We're cooking now...

I have the baby Q and its been through about 10 seasons so far. I bought a rollable folding Weber cart that holds the Q and its bigger brother. It works on screw on propane cylinders but I bought a 7 lb tank and hose for the gas supply. Here's a couple of pictures from the Moraine View Rally where we cook up about 10 lbs of hot dogs for the hot dog fest.

1) is the Magma anything like the Volcano (which can run on propane, wood or charcoal)? If so, think that could be my next grill option - we use it with charcoal but it would be fun to try on propane which I haven't yet...
The one I have is gas only.

2) I think the LP port (which I recently had installed) is already low pressure so are you saying it wouldn't work with the Weber Q1000 (since the 1lb tanks connect PRE-regulator and therefore the quick disconnect hose from the already regulated LP port would connect in from of the regulator)?
I don't know much about the Q1000. Most grills do not adapt well to low pressure propane. There are exceptions.

3) what's the longest hose I could expect to use from that LP quick disconnect port? It comes with a 4 or 5' hose but as you know, they install it street side but all your camping is done curbside so I think a 20-25' hose would let you bring the grill to where we would normally use it. But I wonder if there is some distance after which propane doesn't like to flow....
I added my own LP port and it's curbside, and I use a 10' propane hose. It all works out pretty well.

The maximum distance is dependent upon the size of the grill and the diameter of the hose, but 20-25' isn't unreasonable.

I've posted this elsewhere but wanted to close the loop on this thread.

I really like my Weber Q120 and was looking forward to converting it to run off my newly installed LP port. I found a lot of information online but for the life of me couldn't find the right parts to make it work. The gas valve was looking for a particular fitting that the big box stores and other places came close, but not exact for the fitting.

Torjik makes a kit called ConvertaQ ( link here: ) that fit perfectly. This is definitely more expensive than buying components at a big box store but the fit here was perfect. Even better, they worked with me to create a custom hose with a 3/8" quick disconnect since that's what the rest of my setup is with the Genconnex LP conversions on my Honda generators.

They were great to work with and the kit took about 15 minutes to install. If you're a fan of your Q and want to run it off your LP port, check them out.

To be clear - I'm not affiliated with these guys at all, I paid full price for my kit and I'm not compensated by them in any way. I'm just so dang happy I finally got what I needed I'm psyched to share the info! 😀
