Any thoughts on this? should I look to mod the propane connection?
With most gas grills, you connect to a high-pressure source (no regulator at the bottle), and regulate the flow at the grill. With a grill hooked up to an RV's propane bottles, you're tapped into the low-pressure side, and flow has already been regulated at the tank, so trying to regulate it again at the grill is problematic.
The normal modification routine is to modify the grill
to remove the regulator and go with a simple valve instead of a regulator, so that your trailer's setup is unchanged. Modifying the trailer's regulator setup instead is risky and could void your insurance coverage in the event something goes wrong.
