ACE-propane valve

There seems to be no propane coming out of the outside valve that you hook the outside bbq to. Any ideas?

Not to be too simple, but is the shutoff valve near the connection open?

The valve on the tank must be open, the valve at the connection must be open, the quick disconnect must be secure. Of the three the quick disconnect is the easiest to get wrong. The male end has to be inserted and fully locked in position or no propane flow. Had trouble with mine the first time. Don't turn on the valve at the connector until after you have the hose plugged in. Turn the valve off before you turn off the burners to allow the propane to bleed off.

Hope this helps! Love our BBQ grill, works great and no little bottles to mess with. This was a great addition by Thor!

Cool Gas Grill Hook-Up

I'm having the same problem. I believe I'm applying the coupling correctly, but how will I know (other than the obvious) I'm not connected correctly? Is there any adjustments I need to make to the RV Propane Tank?

Unhappy Exterior BBQ port doesn't work

2019 quantum rc25 - Brand New - all gas appliances work, except for the exterior BBQ port.
1. The dealer measures 4 inches of pressure, which he says is sufficient. I later read that RV Propane Regulators are set at 11 inches of pressure.
2. I have from camping world new LP Hose 12' item # 86731, and low pressure grill item # 90198. I left BBQ grill installed with coupler valves open on RV and hose for an hour, when I try to ignite the stove I get poof of a flame then it goes out. I tested the grill on a portable propane tank, and the grill works. And Yes, all the valves on the connectors were open.
3. I removed the LP outside BBQ valve and no noticeable LP comes out. I found the propane line manifold, but don't want to touch it.
4. I followed instructions to reset the regulator, disconnect regulator from propane tank and open cook top burners for two minutes then reconnected regulator.
5. No improvement to BBQ grill function. All other appliances work - cook top, furnace, refrigerator, on-demand hot water heater.
Do I have a faulty regulator?

Do I have a faulty regulator?
I found the problem today. I'll try to explain. Under the bathroom sink there is a 5"5" hole going right under the raised toilet floor. Through this hole is a 4" heater duct to bedroom, two 1-1/2" ABS grey water pipes, two propane lines to BBQ port & on demand water heater. The hose for the water heater would slip left and right. The hose for the BBQ was PINCH CLOSED. I wedged two plastic shims between the wall and ABS pipe to give room for both gas lines to slip. I squeezed the crimp in hose open and tested BBQ grill up to 500 degrees. Now I'm contemplating how to deal with the damaged hose?
