Exterior LP Connection

I just bought a 2017 freedom elite 30fe and can't find the exterior LP connection. The website says it has one so did the salesman and the guy in the walk through, But tonight I looked (in the dark and with no experience in what they look like) and couldn't find it. Can someone let me know what I'm looking for and where it is?

I assume it is some sort of quick connect or standard LPG connection that I can hook onto with my grill?

Thank you so much

Dan

On my ACE its on the passengers side just next to the outside kitchen. Its a brass quick connect fitting and just behind that is a red handle valve.

Mine does not have a red handle valve but rather a black lever valve. Also, it should have a yellow plug in the end of the quick connect when not in use. Look for the female fitting at this link.

Thank you all so much for your replies I'm confused because there is a video from Thor that says there is a quick connect LP connection near the passenger side rear and I don't see one anywhere around there. Is it possible that it wasn't installed for some reason ?

Anything is possible, it may not have been installed. If all your literature says its there, and it isn't, your dealer should install one for you, at Thor's cost. I had one installed on our Gemini, it didn't come with one, dealer did it prior to delivery.

Propane Regulator

Do I need to install a propane regulator between my outside gas connection and my gas grill?

The typical quick connect outside gas connections are AFTER the RV regulator... These would not need another regulator - and wouldn't work properly if you added another...

Some rigs have a high pressure tap between tank and regulator (extend-a-stay type). These would NEED a regulator before any appliance.

Very easy to see if anything is connected in the 12 inches from tank to dual stage regulator. If nothing there, then all fittings are already regulated.

Look on the passenger side at the very bottom edge of the coach. The connection will have a small ball-valve and probably a yellow rubber plug. Easy to overlook!

On my 2019 Freedom Elite 30FE there is a quick connect behind the rear axle on the passenger side. We had planned to use the Coleman Roadtrip grille connected to that. When we took delivery, the sales guy saw us buying the grille and told us that we cannot connect the grille to that quick connect due to pressure differences and that there is no solution other than to bring the 1lb bottle with us. This was quite disappointing. Is it true? Is there a work around?

The LP quick connects are already pressure regulated. If the item you want to use has a regulator for connecting to portable tanks or bottles that regulator will have to be removed with necessary mods made to connect to the quick connect. I made the mod to a Weber Q2000. Parts were not expensive on Amazon and it took about 30 minutes to do.

So all I need to do is remove the regulator from the grille and replace it with a quick connect or whatever that end of the hose as on it?

Here is what is on the RV:




Here is the grille:

Geez. The guy at camping world made it seem like things will explode if I try it and that the equipment needed to do it has not been invented.

Thanks, going to put the adapters in this weekend.

There is your mistake. You listened to "The guy at Camping World". My money goes to "The guy at Camping World" not being able to spell RV let alone how to enjoy owning one.

That's probably true...

Here's a pic of the adapter that I got from propanegear.com

Ext LP Connection on 2019 Thor Palazzo

I see where the new 2020 Thor Palazzo has an external LP connection that is factory installed. I have a 2019 Thor Palazzo and cannot seem to find a factory installed external LP quick connection. Does anyone know if the 2019's came with this or not. Thanks in advance for your responses.
