Propane Gas Grill

I love my Winnebago Vista 27n. It came equipped with a propane gas grill outlet and I would like to gift myself with a compatible gas grill. All the literature talks about high pressure and low pressure regulators. Would somebody please cut to the chase and tell me what I need. Also, could you all recommend a brand and type of grill that would cook a hamburger or a steak for one that wouldn't take an hour on the grill to cook. Thanks for your help----

Most of the gas grills come with their own regulator.

If your outlet on the coach is before the regulator you won't have any problems, if your outlet is after the regulator you will need to remove the regulator from the grill.

We use the Weber Baby Q grill.

You need a grill that operates on low pressure. Unfortunately your choice is limited to fairly large grills that are made to hang on the side of a RV. Any grill that works with a 1 lb propane cylinder will not work as those are high pressure. The Coleman Fold N Go grill is a good small grill but is runs on the 1lb cylinder and will not work off your RV connection.

You just need to remove the regulator from any grill you buy. Nothing special about the grill. Removing the regulator is a simple task.

This is one of the ideas that sounds great in concept to have a propane line but the implementation didn't take into account that all grills have a built in in regulator.

I considered piping in a line for my grill. Then I realized the placement of my propane tank is about dead center of the awning mounting. This means I would have to have a 12 to 15' hose so I could move the grill out from under the awning before I would use it. I never light my grill under the awning. I don't want the smoke and grease from cooking on the awning. I also worry about someone tripping on the long hose and possibly tipping the grill over causing damage or even starting a fire.
Grills are meant to be used outdoors. The farther from the awning, doors and windows the better IMO. With the grill being more moveable I can move it downwind of the camper or coach keeping all the odors away from the inside. I'll keep my 20# tank and grill.

Peach, bought this grill from HomeDepot and converted it to low pressure with the two parts from Amazon. This is the same grill that comes on the Vista 29VE.

The outlet is the same post regulator pressure fed to the indoor range, furnace, and refrigerator, about 11 " water col. pressure.

If you buy or own a grill with a OEM integrated control valve with built in combination high-low regulator then you can convert it with a different combination control valve that has only an integrated low regulator. The youtube video I have linked to has a partial list of grills this conversion works on.

The cheapest one I know of is the Camco 57274 Control Valve with Quick Connect, then you combine this with a male-female quick connect cable and you are good to go.

Here is a link to the control valve on

Here is a link to a youtube video documenting the conversion:

Make sure any grill you buy that the temperature control/on/off dial is not part of the regulator. It has to be separate so you can remove the regulator and still have the control knobs in place. Once you have removed the regulator you can replace it with a quick disconnect and also have a hose with quick disconnects to go from your grill to the hook up on the RV.
