Propane doesn't seem to be pushing out enough

So we are at Barefoot RV Resort in North Myrtle Beach, by the way, its beautiful here. Great campground. Been trynna grill but when I'm hooked up to my rigs propane to my Char-broil, it doesn't seem to get enough propane to stay lit. It worked fine last time with the canister because we didn't have a quick connect. Now I don't have a canister thinking we should be good. NOT I don't know if its the wind or just not getting enough propane to stay lit. We have everything connected and open 🤷🏽*♀️

Your coach's propane system has a regulator and it is set to 11 inches of water pressure. Most propane grills are made to work with DOT propane cylinders which do not have a regulator. If you are going to use a grill meant for a DOT cylinders on you coach's propane ASME tank, you must remove or bypass the grill's regulator.

Check it www.Propanegear.com
They have the parts necessary to convert your grill to a pre-regulated source.

Don't forget to set your regulator aside. You my want to use your grill in places where it'll be needed.
