I did it the easier way--had them take off the regulator and make up a 10 foot hose when we bought the Baby Q!!
We have a 5 or 8 pound tank for our firepit..

Has anybody used one of the grills that attach to side of an RV? Do you have pictures of how it attaches to an Escape or comments on how it works?

We had the quick connect line factory installed and I originally thought we would be able to attach to one of our table top grills, but as described earlier in this thread, that isn't going to work, so I'm thinking of getting an RV specific grill (designed to run on low pressure) such as an RVQ or Camco 5500.

I'm wondering how they attach, and if there is any concern about melting the fiberglass or awning?

We could always put them on a table, but then it might be cheaper to adapt a regular grill like suggested elsewhere?

I like my BBQ portable so that I can place it where it works best. Usually that is on the picnic table ( along with my one-burner butane stove ). In windy conditions I can place it in the lee of the trailer ( whichever side that may be ).

I had a pop-up that had a barbecue attach to the side of the trailer, and we gave up on it, not out of concern for the awning or trailer side, but because too much smoke was getting into the trailer. It was just too close.

How to connect Coleman to your camper propane.

A bit late, but for what it is worth.

The grill snaps on via the quick connection. I keep the grill way away from the fiberglass and awning. And I agree with Glen Baglo use the long hose u get with the Escape option to place the grill away from the trailer.

We bought a little collapsable metal table to place the grill on.

We have a Coleman stove but left it at home. If we decide to start cooking outside, I guess we will get the thing converted to propane. So far we just cook inside, or should I say, Liz cooks inside. (I do the cleanup)

Great, but just keep in mind that the Coleman LXE grill has a separate regulator (which the conversion removes) and control; most stoves (of any brand) use a combined regulator and control so they can't be converted this way.

We're talking grills here right? I get so much life out of one of the little 1 lb canisters I don't see the need for converting the Coleman stove.

I came across this a couple years ago when trying to find a way to connect my stove. This is a big unit, and it uses different connectors for the gas lines.

This attests to the many different styles folks on this forum adapt for using their Escape. I would bet that we do 90% of our cooking on the stove outside. Not that we don't like our Escape, we do, we just like being outside even better.

I have used those things, and carry one for a backup, but they always run out when you really need them, and I just can't get by the terrible waste they produce, and how much you have to spend on them. Have you thought of going to the small refillable ones?
