I have my Weber grill hooked up directly to a conection on my trailer with a hose that was assembled for me at the gas place. Not a quick connect but screw together. My grill runs super low and constantly shuts off. I cant' get it to run correctly. Has anyone else had this problem? Iti is killing me trying to cook steaks.

Please help me on this one.

RVs have low pressure systems through a regulator. If your Weber is hooked into a trailer line after the regulator it is being regulated twice. Once with the trailer regulator and one on the bbq. You need to remove the one on the bbq for it to work properly. See directions here.

This is correct. The Weber Q series grills allows for the regulator to be removed. Remove it and all is well.

X4 did this with mine. Saves me from hauling another propane tank along.

The other thing I need to do every so often is push a small paperclip end through the burner holes to push through the accumulated burnt on food drippings. Kind of a stupid design to have the burner holes at the top for this to happen. Love the grill anyway though.

Thanks for the video. My system looks a lot like the one on the video but it was supplied by an LP gas company. They made the lines that connect to my trailer output and connect to my grill. My connections look a lot like the connection on the gas bottle and the end of the factory Weber grill. One screws into my trailer connection and it ends after about 10'. It is nice to have a ten-foot line to move the grill around with. The other attaches to the hose end they made for the grill which that hose is only 6-8" long and stays on the grill. I guess I will have to stop back at the gas place and see what they can tell me.

For a few bucks you can totally rebuild the burner and the igniter. Clean the whole grill and it is new again. I know this isn't the answer to his ? but is good to do every couple years.

I, too, removed the regulator from my Weber. It works like a charm from the low pressure port on my trailer.

Sorry, I also didn't mention I removed the regulator at the grill and the hose is attached just like the one in the video. I guess I could have something caught up in the hose or connections.
