RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

After reviewing all the responses and looking at my options I called my local gas company and we collectively came up with a workable solution. Long story short we decided the simplest thing to do was tee off the line prior to the main regulator. It works great and cost me a grand total of $76.47. Needless to say as they say I’m a happy camper. Thanks all for your input.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

After all this good info it appears I’m stuck with the Weber go anywhere grill or similar due to space limitations. There isn’t space for even the smallest Q, oh well. Guess I’ll be using 1# bottles. Thanks all for your responses.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

I just ordered a connection kit from this place. I've got a Weber Q100, and this kit screws onto where the regulator on the grill comes off. I got the Weber specifically because it could be converted to hook up to the low pressure outlet on the side of the RV. I've gotten tired of using the 1# bottles, and having them run out of fuel halfway through grilling a chop or steak. Could not have said it any better as I too hate messing with the 1# bottles and running out of gas part way through grilling a rib eye. Thank you very much for the link, that is EXACTLY the info I was looking for. You rock.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

Is there a brand of portable gas grill that will work with the built in gas tank on an RV? This tank has its own regulator which renders my grill worthless as it has its own dedicated regulator . Long story short I’m regulating my grill twice which just will not work. Any suggestions would be appreciated . I took the regulator off of my Weber Q2000 and replaced it with a male quick connect. Works great off of my trailer LPG outlet. Bobbo the image didn’t work would you try again. Thanks Got the images, thanks. How do you regulate your cooking temperature? https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/8I79WTYjSGCs8fS-xNOCALSBTg5fUXb1_apZqgjNLcODY2uZdEn9nMqFCMm2nEOr44wv8IFqqWQ3sfa_99IxMlVy1yJHpBT7GPHtBjq6OFlRXeqvNadW0-rg5SPg9PkHBSqwHoObxlah5KJEeYW99kusanoPP73nwctGgOLu1EboIlC4uuTYSQ3gDENBwjlz6Q1Qw1edD_eBvbTwXvhcJiUJq19_7XYubNu3fTlCetVru7geNj7g4fYY63u1wzZsLhodvvp7rRT2vcVkcTGl050ux3qyu_r_RkA2VzoeinclO6pFBvmISxxbr79TcYK1jtsJyoD-bMn56KEO5AE03akEYmDdaZ265bxHAx9XIys80dDMe3vtwpB7F88mNMlsfyd78RdU96UAk0DAURYYY03A8C5eQevmxum8qoltngrgPu7NPdcMOSNUZdHN6kC0ylfaSeiyF433BF4VtKV_vKvJy_rTAoSauU6egPg07OO838VBbwkptmTnNvtKQbnsDL5k4VBtEGMdGn0QtS4afvGYDj2DzmcXBYzPlwX4VO3JwM73hVXMCY5BGhmejHcKeESPBPLjwYiKzut_VsB2da851pGdyaS6_a_KV981Cw=w850-h637-no width=320 I use a hose with quick connects on each end for that, and have a hose with a regulator on it so I can still hook up to a propane tank. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/b0OgOXEabXT_Uoz8byAFnE2DFYkp1ErqcInyC8qC6nCUPgvYWS4B8RWpvQv6irWXUMIAgflXEDZ4fk3cLNnQ21ykw0DNjOOomzsGWIW_lFpaqhYxs6O9JNgQDNg5TFx9zCoGKLjIYs3Z023-VrYWuGLTwqgCJJimMK6vI8rOBe5A_VM3NLu_DRlDDN3-Hy2WZVUC6nCXwtdmZF8ibIqsmZVS8rUPDnCwdadkoyevv3CNwn0dmQ6FSgJFrX1RkvHSrg_eAjfDKbQdMbr0vMTvTLNCyRO3G3BAb93t_vm0Vimd9XzKMpxIJR1Ip_dG3e-fWPOPci9JqQ6Ixzd-Ku2gkylyKdI_OEQEEJOLd8DGZTVhaReNXR__3a-sn9Up8lUY6xxtTteWpW0gZkzwvREfmtwhBXiRodCs3GqhR0qlOCRg3AHltXhxOLHcK03pREeTFUUj6tIh0wu8T6vs8ofJ4nFCkpu2Cy3rTg3z4qZhpSywbSgeHgkbnYe0mUcpxxdGiHd35QjudrvjyjG7mELBdUwYUQqi8bulBQQO_O3IzAd6dmgUs12XsXVjd6tKeRTSOC2Boxiz8lXB-NhKTFjufc5Ex00TQQgF12QkNGV9Qw=w850-h637-no width=320 And, yes, the quick connects are propane rated.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

Did not realize you were in Raleigh. If you are able to disconnect the hose with the regulator you can try F&G Distributing in Garner. They are knowledgeable in all things propane and have a lot of ready made hoses. I do lots of business with Francis at F&G . That said they sell not install. Besides at this point I don’t need parts . First I need to figure out a work around that would allow me to bypass the onboard regulator using only the regulator that attaches to the grill via the 20’ hose which attaches to the quick connect on the RV. Thanks anyway.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

Since most folks just turn the grill up high and start cooking, you can remove the grill regulator and make a new connection that will allow you to use the low pressure side of your on-board LP tank. If you want to use the grill as built there are adapters that will allow you to put a connection between the tank and the regulator and you can run a high pressure line from there to where the grill is located. Your suggestion would work if and only if the built in regulator is accessible and I could find someone willing to lie underneath a b van to make the modification . One had to wonder why the mfg’s would put a non workable gas quick connect on the RV. Duh .

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

Little more info. I have one of the Weber Go Anywhere grills that I reallyyyy like a lot as it cooks great and is small. However the gas connects to the grill via the regulator. Translation I must use the regulator that came with the grill to connect the gas to the grill. Sigh I think I’m destined to use the 1lb bottles if I am to use my beloved grill. I ran it straight off a 20 lb bottle on my last RV no problem but that was then and this is now. Thanks for everyone’s input.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

We use a Weber Q with a 1 pound bottle. Works great . No Problems. Ignore the equipment on your RV. Would prefer to use the equipment on the rv if possible as # 1 I paid for it and #2 it is way more convenient and doesn’t take up space in my B.Van which I don’t have.

RE: (rant) ComCast is the absolute worst in service

I’m sure they are the pits just the same as Spectrum which is who we have in our area. I can say without a doubt they absolutely have the most arrogant customer no service I’ve ever been subjected to. Not to mention that they are the most overpriced company I’ve ever had the misfortune to deal with. I’m getting the last laugh though as I’m firing them effective December 20 and will not be paying anyone for cable the 3 months we’re in Florida. Good luck dealing with your monopoly cable company as they are even more unscrupulous than the cell phone carriers.

RE: Winegard Garbage

We've had our Travl'r for over a year with absolutely no issues. In the last 7 months, the unit has been deployed and stowed sometimes on a daily basis. There are thousands on RV's all over the country and in use every day without issue. It's too bad that you have a problem and the fix is inconvenient for you. But to say no one should buy this product based on your experience is not doing anyone hear a service. For every complaint about the Winegard products there are hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers. Maybe you just need to get over it and move on. I doubt any manufacturer of any type of equipment, especially electronics, can make 100% of their products perfect, including Mogul. I have certainly seen complaints from their customers. So based on your logic, no one should by Mogul either. Nor anything else manufactured by man. Chuck I expect you would be singing a different tune if it was your $2000 plus Trav’ler acting up and you were scrambling to get it fixed . Count me as another dissatisfied former Trav’ler owner . Mine lasted two years before it became a pos. Hope you continued good fortune with yours.

RE: Purchase and install Winegard SK SWM3

The comm cable is run between the dish base and where ever you put the control box. Which is usually placed near your main TV. Most installers will run it next to the coax cable from the dish to the power supply. BTW, before you buy one ask how and where you will get service when they fail. I have been thru two of these things, and would spend 500 dollars more for the RFMogul if I was doing it again. X2. Forget the trav’ler as it’s just a high priced piece of junk. They are also a total pita to get repaired .Feel free to pm me if you desire more info about the poor quality/service of this product.

RE: Winegard Traveler installation questions

Couldn’t agree more. The trav’ler is a total pos. Mine would not stow and their answer was ship it back on my dime. Not to mention what a pain to uninstall and reinstall. If it was me and I was dead set to buy a Winegard product I would buy a cheap disposable like the pathway etc. it dies chunk it and buy another.

RE: Swingout Cargo box/bike rack combo

Thanks for the link Sam. A good place to start but I need the cargo box vs rack for security reasons. I'll give em a call and see what they suggest. Thanks again.

RE: Expected MSRP discount

Best suggestion I can make is kind of the obvious, look online, RV trader etc. find what you are looking for and check the range of prices. check dealer claims as far as admitted fees and add ons and go from there. If you are not locked to pleasure way I will suggest you look north a little. www.RV007.com is just north of you in Danville Va. they do their pricing straight up, no dealer prep or add on stuff. How much discount you can get below the advertised price is not huge , but they seem to start with a decent price point. Thanks for the response but RV trader is not a good resource for the info I'm looking.. i am locked in to Pleasureway,

Expected MSRP discount

I know this has been asked many times before and yes I did a search and found a handful of responses. However I'm asking a bit more of a specific question. I would appreciate some dealer recommendations and expected MSRP discounts on a Pleasureway B van. Thanks for your responses.

RE: Small Dome Satellite

We put a Winegard X1 on our 2016 Navion. Everything bought on Amazon. Easy install. You have to also order the Roof Mounting kit for it. https://www.amazon.com/Winegard-PA-2035-Pathway-Black-Antenna/dp/B00HT7I4QY/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1485036114&sr=8-3&keywords=winegard+x1 Thanks Triglider good info . I think that is what I'll be getting as well. I assume you are satisfied with the performance.
