It allows me to use my grill and fire pit (which have been converted to low pressure) away from the trailer’s low pressure fitting. It cost @ $30 to assemble. Be sure to use a low pressure QD female fitting. While the look the same externally, low pressure and high pressure fittings are NOT interchangeable.
This is exactly what I want to do. Did you find the correct threading on the low pressure QD fitting to fit the regulator? Is there an intermediary adapter? I've been scouring amazon and haven't seen something that gives me the idea it would work. I should go to Lowes as well and see in person.

What am I missing here? You have to then use a regulator, and it takes but a short moment to undo the flare fitting to the male LP QC on the appliance, and replace it with a hose and regulator built in. Would not using low pressure connections have the potential for mix ups?

Since using LP appliances on my trailer for the last 9 years, I have only twice now had to do this swap, once with the BBQ for tailgating, and once for the firepit and a backyard party during a fire ban. But, I am ready when needed.

We are very happy with the convenience of the low pressure gas connect on our trailer. We have used it for our Magma Adventurer series grill and for our Camp Chef 2 burner stove. Magma makes a low pressure valve to use instead of the regulator that comes with the grill. Since we have the Magma regulator and the low pressure valve we have the option of using it close to the trailer or farther away if needed.

Yup I put one together. Buy a low pressure female fitting use the disposable tank fitting and regulator, just get fittings to connect the two and you are ready to use your grill away from the camper!

If I remember correctly, the output threads on the regulator were1/4-20 and the lip pressure female QC had male 1/4-20 threads, so it was just a matter of applying sealant (or Teflon tape) and threading it together.

Just trying to confuse you, Jim!

Actually, all of my appliances have male fittings that plug directly into the regulated QC fitting supplied by ETI. By making up the “adapter,” I can attach to any propane tank and plug my grill/fire pit/Camp Chef with their male fittings dirextly in without having to disconnect fittings. I just find it convenient and extremely fast. It works very well with my 5-pound tank which is much lighter than a 20-pound tank.
