How to Connect a Propane BBQ to Your RV's Propane Tank

Can you hook up an RV propane tank to a Weber Q Grill?

ANSWER: Hi Paul yes you can connect most any portable propane Grill or Propane Flat Top Grill to your RV's main propane tank. In fact, CAMCO Manufacturing makes a kit to do exactly what you want to do. It is the Camco Propane Brass Tee with 4 Port with 5' and 12' Hose. This setup not only allows you to hook up your portable Propane BBQ/Grill but it also allows you to connect an external propane tank to your RV in the event that you run out of propane and you do not want to move your RV to get propane. The kit also comes with hoses needed to connect your portable BBQ/Grill and external Propane Tank to your RV's main tank.

Quite a few RVers have this setup on their RVs. This can be a do-it-yourself job as long as you are comfortable working with propane connections. If you have ever hooked up a Gas Dryer in your home, you should be able to make this modification on your own. If you are not comfortable doing this yourself, you may want to pay someone to do it for you.

The video below outlines the installation procedure for this accessory:

Once you have this installed there are several other propane accessories that you can hook up to this connection to make your camping trip more enjoyable, such as Outdoor Propane Heaters, Propane Fire Pits and Propane Stoves.

I hope that this information has been helpful to you.

Hi, I'm looking at doing exactly this but a parts person at an RV dealership has told me that the regulator on a portable bbq is a low-pressure regulator with flame control and that I need a high-pressure regulator in between the tank and the bbq. Is this correct? I have seen a video by the RV Geeks where they did add a 15PSI regulator above the brass tee and then installed the hose to it? Is this necessary?
