Yep...lots of options online but it's best to do it once and do it right. the propane gurus have everything you need.

Andy and joann

I have a 2018 31w. And yes it is regulated. You just have to connect you quick connect and use it. I don't use the 12 foot hose I only use a 6 footer because I have a blackstone 16 in flat top and a 2 burner gas grill that I use. Just make sure you turn off the quick connect when done in case you forget to turn off your grill. Also a 12 foot hose when you disconnect will have a lot of propane in it you will loose when you disconnect the grill.

I always shut the valve at the connection to the rig, and let the grill burn off what's left in the hose.

Okay guys; I read through this entire thread while I was hurry up & waiting at cw today. I disn't think much of the issue at 1st bc I don't like to bbq w/propane. Then y'all mentioned camp stove & I was suddenly trackin (hot summers, cooking outside instead of broiling in my rig, yes!). So I ran out & searched and saw the lil door that I can't believe I've passed several timea a day for nearly 2 months w/not a whiff of curiosity (so much for my level of awareness!). Anyway, I have no idea what y'all are talkung about as far as regulators but I'd like the dummies version 4.0 from you experts on that lil hatch & how I can go about getting a camp stove to use with it during the summer (I don't know what I'd do w/out you guys!). Please let me know in braille (given my negative 50 level of tech skills that don't involve combat med, firearms, or pre computer motorcycles, lol!).... As always, thanks - Donna & Radar (the dog)

What's behind the "little door"?

If it's a propane quick connect fitting you'll need a hose and a low pressure propane camp stove, one without a regulator.

I have no idea how to tell, or what is, a quick connect propane fitting, or what that means - same for low pressure(as opposed to what?) & without a regulator (or what that is & what it does) can you explain it louder & in s-l-o-w motion?🤯

You were actually in a pretty good place for buying low-pressure propane stuff!
You'll need a quick disconnect hose for the hookup. Pick the length that will work best for your needs. (we chose a 12 footer: the Missus wants me as far away as possible! )
The hose will have a sliding collar at one end (to hook to the grille), and one of those quick disconnect fittings for the rig's end... (That'll look about like a baby bottle nipple)
After that: it's all about finding the right grille! You need to specifically ask for the "low-pressure" type. I posted a picture of the grille that I bought at the local Camper's World store, and there's a couple of other even better choices available.
EDIT: How to tell if a grille might be a low pressure unit...

Take a peek under it's skirts... If you can see the same sort of baby bottle nipple, and not a regulator:

The biggest confusion here is that...there is no such thing as a "high pressure grill". There are however, low and high pressure regulators...depending on what type appliance you have. Most everything you will use around your RV (and house) will require a low pressure regulator. Whether the regulator is supplied at the RV tank itself...or near the end of the line at the appliance...only one regulator will be needed. If you're using the RV quick disconnect...that supply line has already been regulated by the regulator on the built in tank...so...removing the included regulator that came with your portable grill will be necessary, as you can't get enough pressure by reducing it twice. Here...you go to an LP bulk facility with your RV and grill and have hoses made, or you can search online and purchase/build the line yourself. A good resource link attached:

We all know the propane that comes out of the holes and gets lit is low pressure.

A "Low Pressure Grill" is one that requires a previously regulated low pressure source of propane such as from the MH propane distribution header and available quick connect fitting. A "Low Pressure Grill" does not have a regulator but has a flow control valve(s).

A "High Pressure Grill" is one that requires an unregulated high pressure source such as a 1 pound bottle, a 20 pound tank, or a tap off the MH tank before the regulator. A "High Pressure Grill" has its own regulator. Most portable grills you buy from big box stores are High Pressure Grills.

But with the proper tools, parts and skills: you can remove a regulator from a high-pressure grille, and make it work with your low--pressure source!

We'll wave to you as you fly over the campground...on fire.


"Most portable grills you buy from big box stores are High Pressure Grills."
....interesting statement...but they come with a built-in regulator...because they operate on low pressure....that makes sense...

Awesome, thx Bob! I can picture that, and I'll make sure to peak under the skirts!

Thx for the clarification, 16ACE27! You guys all know that, but I didn't. I always ruck-camped. I didn't ever carry propane. Bbq's & cooking underground were my forte. I have so much to learn! This is a very different type of "camping".

Using it with a 2-burner stainless grill similar to the one in the picture. I've removed the hose that came with it to install the long one, but not sure if I should leave the regulator attached or not.



Many thanks!!
I have a Thor 37rb 2018. My outlet is regulated. You need a grill without a regulator. A low pressure grill

Or you can get a regular grill and remove the regulator. I have a Weber Q1200 and that's what I did.
