I noticed this a recent thread, while looking for ideas for this very same thing, an adapter for RV use.

Converta•B - 8 Ft. RV Quick-Connect compatible with Blackstone® 17"/22" Griddles - propanegear


I am not affiliated with this place, or get anything in return for posting a link, but this is a fast, all in one hose for the RV to blackstone, and you just click-buy.

As a side note to the RV connection, how do you guys store your 17" blackstone?

My garage is not bugproof, we get spiders and rolly polleys in Texas so its impossible to keep them out.

I need to store the griddle somewhere but not inside. I was thinking about a good plastic bin just big enough for the griddle to minimize air. Maybe toss a big pack of dessicant in there to absorb any moisture.

But leaving the griddle out in the open on the floor or a shelf will result in BUG collection.

Gross.

I already had a 12' hose which has the 3/8 female flared connection.



The one that I ordered last week, does not have that nut. It uses a flange now, with two screws that hold it into the gas regulator.

So it appears this has been changed on newer models.

They make an 8 foot and a 12 foot. Get the 12 foot for the extra 4 or 5 bucks more.

I got the 8 footer. I figured I didn't need to be further away than that in most cases as thats almost half the length of my Trailer.

I bought the heavy nylon carrying case and leave it in the rear storage compartment of the Axis.

Older thread I know but I'm seriously looking at purchasing a Blackstone Tailgate model grill for our new RV.

The "PropaneGrill" site has three option of kits it seems. A 8ft hose, 12ft hose and another 12ft hose but says "Low-Pressure propane hose". Any advice on the two different 12ft options would be great! Thanks

Below are the two 12ft different options...I would like to go with the longest hose possible.

Thanks again

Both 12 options are low pressure. The pic showing how to connect for each is the same: remove regulator from grill, and connect to regulated RV supply.
I dont see any difference.

My only question is will it work for the tailgater model. Do they have the same gas regulator connecter as the 17 and 22 griddle

If you can find a youtube video shoiwing one of them being un-boxed and assembled: it would sure answer your question.
The 17 & 22 are sold without the regulator attached. It's a simple matter to just screw in the adapter, and hook up to your RV!

No quick connect on Fourwinds 22E 2017?

I bought the low pressure hose for the Blackstone griddle I have but cant find any Quick Connect option to my propane system on my Fourwinds 22E , a 2017 model. Can.hook up the griddle but ARHG! not the rig! Dealer couldnt say, but would charge me $300 to do the job-didnt see the rig at home. Does anyone know if the 22 E Fourwinds has a quick connect that it comes with? Thanks!

We purchased the stand and a regulatorless quick connect. Our rig has a regulated quick connect. Both from Amazaon. We went to order the 22" from Amazon but it was back ordered. We were in Camping World last week, they had the 22" on the shelf so we grabbed it. Eberything is still in the box but we are going to assemble, season and cook on it this weekend. Very excited about it.

We are looking for a carry bag for both the grill and the legs. We found the grille bag but not the leg bag. Does one exist? I asked Blackstone but have not heard back from them.

I agree 178%!
I've got the carry case for the 17" unit. They're still not easy to carry... it works better as a storage case.

So far Ive been using the small disposable tanks and the Blackstone regulator but my coach has a low pressure side quick disconnect fitting and I have a long quick connect hose from a previous Aussie grill. Is there a fitting that will work on the Blackstone (17 inch model) that will allow me to discard its regulator and feed directly from the coach? Thanks.

I needed a hose also so this is what we bought. I have not opened the box yet.
