I can't tell you what the exact differences between pneumatic and propane QD fittings, but I'd make a guess that it's the machined tolerances. Most pneumatic fittings have a statement on the package that reads, "Not for use with flammable gasses"..... There have been a number of posts on this forum and on other forums stating not to use the air compressor fittings on any propane QD hose or outlet.

Thank you to all that responded.....and let me say this. I had NO intention of trying to use one of my Milton air quick couplers that I have UNLESS they were/are approved for propane gas. And the price difference, whatever it may be is a very small price to pay for my personal safety and the safety of others around me. When it comes to combustible gasses, taking shortcuts is a very good way to wake up DEAD! I'm lucky enough to have survived as long as I have.....I ain't takin' no shortcuts in this matter.

Just like air quick connects, long, short, big & small, not all LP fittings will mate up together either, they need to be matched halves. The larger end that matches the 1lb bottles is universal, but not necessarily the smaller male end on that hose. Hopefully your half on your rv is fairly universal, I wasn't that lucky, had to search LP dealers til I found the correct half.

The QD fittings for propane are definitely different than the ones for air. Just went through this making a hose for my BBQ to connect it to my trailer.

Propane quick connects are different from air and pressure washer quick connects.

Bob Landry did a very comprehensive post a couple years ago on converting camp stoves and grills to adapt to the RV LPG system. It is a "sticky" at the beginning of the Modifications and Upgrades section of the forum. You can access his posts on the subject here: http://www.keystoneforums.com/forums...ead.php?t=9739

It's some good reading and should answer every question you might have on "how do I????"

Only 2 ways to do it.
Purchase a grill the has a separate regulator from the burner control. Then remove the reg and pipe in your lp connection hose.
Tee into your HP propane prior to your rigs regulator, use an extension hose such as a disposable connection hose. Note, when you disconnect this line there is a shyte ton of propane to depressure.

Okay, I'm a slow typist, great link in prior post.

That's correct, you don't need the regulator on the BBQ since you're going to be connecting to the low pressure propane on the trailer which is already downstream if the regulator on the trailer. You should be able to remove the regulator and connect directly to the control valve to regulate the flame.
