Also has anyone reached out to Thor to get a part number on that particular setup? I thought I would ask before starting out to research it, no sense reinventing the wheel.

That 1lb canister is a 'high pressure' source - so the grill has to have a regulator... It is likely removable - and then would be able to connect to a low pressure quick connect.

I haven't seen the 2018 yet, but expect that would be a low pressure connection with a quick connect. Hopefully somebody that has seen it can confirm.

There are many portable gas grills on the market that are setup without a pressure regulator to be used on the low pressure side of your RV tank. We have the Aussie grill that came with our coach plus another grill from our previous coach. Love not having to use the 1 lb bottles or carry an LP tank, just hook to the coach and use.
Thanks SuperD. I did research the propane topic after that post. There's a safety valve in tank to prevent sudden release. The hoses are reinforced, as you said. The idea of a tee on the high side is pretty clever too. The things I learn from reading!

Greg,

Below is a picture of the grill.

I will try to research the outlet seen on the pictures of the new 27.7.

No; it didn't. We bought a 12' hose, so that we could set it up on the rear elevated patio.

Does the side RV connection need a regulator? I was thinking I would just build up an adapter hose.

We have a portable propane fire pit that has a regulator on it so would’nt need one.
No; it doesn't need a regulator. It's a low pressure setup already.

Yes DocMike, the propane quick release is low pressure, after the regulator. Your 1# bottle is high pressure as is the typical bbq tank, so the portable grills need regulators. Which explains why I couldn't find an adapter from quick release to portable grill, I had to remove the regulator and just adapt an extension hose.

Thanks DocMike that makes sense, now I just need to rig up the fire pit...

If the grill has it's own regulator it requires high pressure, if no regulator on the grill it will be low pressure. Some of the cheaper grills the regulator is also the flame adjustment & can't be removed so it's only high pressure. If you hook up your high pressure grill to the low side of your rv you might get a tiny flame, but probably no flame.
On my 5er I added a tee at the bottle before the regulator, added a 20' hose, put quick disconnect on my hose & Weber grill & can set up anywhere on our campsite I chose.
