Out of curiosity, why not use the gas quick-connect built into your trailer? That’s assuming it does have one.

I like the flavor of it being flame kissed and seared on the outside. Foil takes that away for me.

This can be done but you need to remove the regulator from the grill as the campers already have a regulator reducing it down by the propane tanks. Running it through a second regulator at the grill works for some people but at a much reduced heat and flame. There are a bunch of thread in different forums about this. Just google Weber Q through camper propane and you'll see plenty.

For me, I didn't want to take the grills regulator off and eliminate the ability to use the little 1 lb bottles. I leave it on and disconnect one of my two proane tanks on the camper and use that for grilling. Considering I used to get about 3-5 grill outting (depending on what I was cooking and for how long) out of a 1 lb bottle, that an average of about 80 grill events out of a 20 lber. I carry a spare 20 lber (3rd tank) if I'm going somewhere with no shore power and am running the frig, water heater, stove and heater (if its cold) off propane but thats a rare event.

I'm one of those that converted their Q120 to run off the trailer's quick connect. Handier for me when grilling at the trailer to use my twin 30# LP tanks, but... I've also had the need / desire to use the Q120 away from the trailer, so, I put a female quick connect on the regulator. Now I can use just the hose to quick connect to the trailer, or, I can quick connect the regulator back on and use the LP cannister, dual use.

You only need to remove the bbq regulator if you are teeing off after the trailer reg. If you are teeing right off the trailer propane bottle, then you need to leave the bbq regulator on.

Correct. Most trailers quick connects are Low Pressure (meaning after the trailer regulator). If you put a T valve in before the campers regulator, you leave the bbq regulator on.

Webslave as the best idea and what I will likely end up doing at some point. Keeps the ability to run off a 1 lb if I want to hall it to the daughter softball double header but makes it easy to hook to tha campers Quick Connect also.
