How to Connect a BBQ Grill to an RV's On-Board Propane Tank



Why bother with those little propane bottles when there’s a huge tank already on board?! Here’s how we modified our RV to allow us to connect our barbecue grill to run off our on-board propane tank.

NOTE: The above parts are listed in the exact order we assembled them, running from the RV’s propane tank to the grill. So two of the items are listed above twice, due to being required at different places along the length of the hose assembly.

The only exception to the “listed in order of assembly” is first item above (the Extend-a-Stay/12′ Hose combination), since we separate them to add the 15 PSI regulator in between). And of course the last item, the yellow pipe tape, is used throughout.
