Quick connect gas line

While I'm waiting to pick up our Windsport 31z from Myrtle Beach. I was wanting to pick up a quick connect line for the outside LP connection. Is the outside connection regulated? I did notice it has a cut off on the connection.

Thanks.

Yes, regulated as is everything downstream of the regulator on your tank.

Do you already have a low-pressure grill?
If you don't: pick one of them up also!

I have had no luck finding low-pressure hoses and fittings. First get a good low-pressure grill and then play with fittings that will work to the grill and hose. I got a Coleman grill and the fitting to the grill is only made for the bottles. I'll have to reinvent that fitting to make it work. Good luck in your quest.

I have a magma grill with the small bottle regulator. I guess I will wait till I get the unit and see what I will need to get. Thanks for the response.

CW will have the low pressure grill you need.
It will plug direct to the outside gas line.
Plug it in, open the valve behind the gas line plug and enjoy the cooking.
You can not plug your backyard grill to this system.

If there is a Camping World store near you they usually have just about every fitting made. I know the store at Myrtle Beach (on the highway in from Florence) has lots of fittings, I’ve purchased several from there.

Try propanegear.com they sell the hose and kit and they have YouTube videos on how to convert your grill to low pressure.

We've run into the same issue(s). The quick-connect fitting is pretty east to find.

Thanks for all of the excellent information on this. When we take delivery I will look at CW. Hopefully the unit makes it through Florence!!!!

You also can swing into any bulk propane distributor and have any hose made to any length with any fittings necessary.

You don't need to limit your purchase to a low pressure grill, if you purchase a grill where you can remove the regulator. I found the Weber portable series pretty highly rated and the regulator comes off pretty easy.

Then it's just building your own Quick Disconnect hose, which admittedly took me a bit to figure out. There is a company that makes a "kit" for that, but I didn't like the fact that i now had a 12' hose permanently connected to a tiny aluminum gas stub.

For The Weber's at least, I found that the key was to stick to Amazon and stay with the NPT type connectors and for the QD, make sure you get one for LP gas. Then, all I needed was a 1/8" NPT female to 1/4" NPT Female reducer + a 1/4" NPT male to QD Male for LP gas. Then you can find standard QD hoses of whatever length you want that has a QD male on one side (sticks into your RV) and the other is QD female (clicks onto your grill).

Piece of cake, right?

(not really, I've got about 10 misc. pieces also that don't fit one way or the other due to mismatching each variable of NPT/FIP/straight, male/female, 1/4" / 1/8", 3/8"...)

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Curtis
