I us a camp chef, and it came with a regulator and hose. I ordered the hose to connect it to my camper and installed it with out the regulator. I hooked it to my camper and it works great!

I did get a small surprise when it would not light the first time, and then realized that I forgot to turn the Shut Of Valve (SOV) on. I opened the SOV all the way open at the connection, and it worked as advertised.

Love it.

It is actually kind of funny that you bring this up. I had recently noticed that I could also see light out the bottom of my door. I went out and bought a roll of adhesive backed foam and stuck a small piece under the weather stripping on the door, and voila, the outside light could no longer be seen. A couple of days later, my wife called me at work to tell me that the propane detector alarm had gone off with the trailer parked beside the house. When she opened the door, the alarm stopped. She cracked a side window and the alarm hasn't gone off since. Hmmm??

Maybe the door is a safety device.

That's called a "feature".

We have our Weber Q and our Campfire in a Can adapted to fit the quick connect - works great.

Since both of those are popular items, perhaps you could post detail on what you needed to do to get them to work with the low-pressure quick connect.

I note from the manual available from Weber that, although the Q's regulator is attached directly to the grill, it is separate from the control valve and delivers gas at 11 inches of water column (the standard low pressure). As long as the regulator's connection to the control is a common pipe thread, the regulator (with one-pound cylinder connector) could be removed and replaced with just a hose with a quick-connect on the end.

The Campfire in a Can has a regulator on the end of its hose, which is simply unscrewed and replaced with the fitting for the quick-connect, according to the document provided by the manufacturer at a link provided in their FAQ.

Is that what was done, Dave&Kathie?

That is exactly what I did with my Weber Q..took off the regulator and installed a quick connect fitting for connecting to the trailer low pressure supply..

Same as Steve on the Weber and basically the same on the Campfire in a Can - the manual comes with detailed instructions for converting it to a quick connect.
