Gas grill

My rv has a gas line underneath with a quick connect, so I bought a hose at CW to connect to my Coleman grill,, but the flame is really low, too low to cook,, I presume the regulator on the grill which is made for small cylinders is not letting enough gas through it,,, suggestions ?

I had to remove the regulator on my weber grill for it to work, depending on what grill you have there should be an adapter kit out there. Or go to YouTube, i'm betting someone has a video up on what to do for your specific model

Do you know which model it is? Is it the one that takes the 1 pound cans?

like this one?

If it is, you can use this to directly attach to a 20lb tank.

I have pretty much the same hose but mine has a quick coupler on one end ,, but the grill end has a fitting to screw in the regulator, if I remove the the regulator I need a fitting to go from that to the grill,, believe the grill end is 1/4 inch, it's where the regulator would normally screw on. As clear as mud ?

I think in that case, you are using two regulators. Have you tried to go directly to a 20 pound tank instead of to the RV? Just for a test?

Try a local propane dealer. Or a place that makes up LP hoses.

I remoed the regulator from the grill end ...went to local hardware store and found parts to fit hose to grill end minus reg....works awesome ..
reg comes off with difficulty as they put some type of sealer on the threads be gentle and it will come off

Just hook up a direct line to your grill no regulator. The RV is already regulated.I did that on mine works fine
