Question:

Hi Doc,

We are in the witness protection program (long story) and travel with our RV a lot. We'd like to plug a portable barbecue right into the quick disconnect in the RV but can't figure it out. Can you help?

Regards,

S. Kwatch

Answer:

Dear S,

We get that question a lot around here. The challenge is that the gas flow in an RV is regulated at the tank once already. So, if you plug a portable barbecue with an existing regulator into that system it will be doubly-regulated and will not have enough pressure to work.

So, you need to use the Broil King Porta Chef barbecues as they have a regulator that can be easily removed. Then you replace the original hose with a gas hose and a female quick disconnect that can plug into your existing RV system. Easy. We've got all the gear to keep you travelling.

Sincerely,

Doctor M.
