High Pressure Propane quick disconnect

Please forgive me if this has been covered, but I have searched and searched and have not found any articles covering exactly what I am looking to do. Some similiar, but not the same. Surely someone has had this idea or accomplished this before I would think.

I have several propane appliances I want to run off of a quick disconnect. I know the factory installed quick disconnect is low pressure and would involve removing the regulators on my appliances. I want to run things such as a double burner set, propane campfire, propane grill, etc.... I also dont have any reason to buy any grills specifically for an RV or anything dedicated to low pressure.

My thoughts are to install a T at one of the tanks before the campers double regulator and run a propane hose to the back of the trailer with a high pressure disconnect. This line would be straight from the tank and unregulated as all of the appliances have thier own regulators. This way all of the appliances can be fueled at one location and I dont have to carry around a tank.

Is this safe? I know its possible, but is it wise? I have been looking at hoses and parts, most hoses are rated at 350 psi. I am concerned because on most grills and burners have the regulator that screws right to the tank, lowering the pressure before it travels through the hose.

I hooked up a gas grill directly to a tank once, the fire was quite incredible. I've never tried it but I think having a second regulator would not hurt anything. try it and see.

Well my grills and burners all have their own regulator. So each appliance will be regulated. But there will be about 30 feet of unregulated hose running from the tank to the quick connect. I may try two regulators. I just read alot of things people post saying two regulators will not work together.

I run a Propane BBQ and a fire pit neither would work with their own regulator. I was able to remove the regulator from the fire pit which has it's own control valve and for the BBQ I removed the regulator and bought one of these.

My opinion it would be better to convert your appliances to low pressure than to run a high pressure line to the back of the trailer. You will find that a 30' propane line will be quite expensive unless you run black pipe....

you can do it without a problem.. Go to your local gas company and have them make the hose for you. It will more than handle the high-pressure gas. run it to your grill or whatever you want to fire up.
I know this will work because I have propane in my home, large 420 tank behind my home. When the gas company was running the gas lines I had them stub out a quick disconnect at the rear of the house for my bbq grill. It works like a charm. All I do is connect to the regulator and plug host to the house.. No Problem.

Its not a good idea to run two regulators together. Regulators are designed to have the higher pressure on the imput side. When the input side is seeing regulated pressure the second regulator won't necessarily work properly.

I bought some LP Quick disconnect fittings from home depot and converted my system so I can have a remote high pressure line for my barbecue.
