Iíve looked everywhere, but canít find the correct Quick Connect hose to connect from my camper to my Blackstone griddle. Itís not the standard 1/4Ē quick connect. I have a 2021 Bullet 330BHS. Below is a picture of what connects to the camper (from the stove that came with camper)
Please help!

That's a 3/8 LP quick connect.

Here you go. I was looking at getting one.

That is the 1/4” quick connect. Doesn’t work on mine. I bought that first by mistake. Then bought 1/2”. Also wasn’t right. I’m hoping 3/8” is a winner. I found it at Home Depot. I’ll go get it in the morning.

Sorry, I didn't even catch that. I had this saved in my Amazon account to order. I will have to check my camper before I order.

Doubt you'll find an approved LP quick disconnect at any hardware store, those designed for air are not approved for LP. Your best bet is your local LP distributor, they can also make up custom hoses to whatever length you need/want.

HD sells the natural gas 3/8" quick disconnect. That's what the builder put on our deck and and I had to buy a hose 23 yrs ago when we bought our ng grill. When we bought our current camper it had the 1/4" qdc on the outdoor stove and a 3/8" on the bumber mounted grill. I recognized the size and ordered a 12' extension hose so we could use a larger grill on the table. I assume they did that for a higher flow rate. The ng hoses that HD and others sell are typically larger and less flexible than ones you get from Amazon or online. The OP is looking for a fitting so shouldn't have a problem.

Now days HD and Lowes list if they have it in the the store, how many are in stock, and the bin number. If that "in stock" number is below 4 or 5 I'd order it for pickup to to make sure they didn’t dissappear (stolen) since their last inventory.

The uose for natural gas are typically very stiff. Do a search on line for lp hose with the size female QD and the size male QD and you'll see hoses available. Or as was earlier suggested go to a propane company and they can make you one. Another option is to remove and replace the end in your photo with the corresponding size of what's on the camper.

I have the same issue. Want to connect up the blackstone but no one makes a 3/8" quick connect to blackstone, can find tons of options with 1/4". I have no issue swapping out the connector on the camper but was wondering if this would/could affect how the 2 burner stove operates. Does it require 3/8" fitting for the flow rate? I cannot find this information any where.

Can you just change the size on the Blackstone to match what you can buy?

That's what I was just going to ask.



Why don't they make these damn things universal????

They are "universal" just like a 1/4" or 3/8" or 1/2" drill or the same with ratchets or socket sets... Or the "universal ROMEX" 14 ga for 15 amps, 12 ga for 20 amps and 10 ga for 30 amps...

Gas flow requirements dictate the size of the fittings, not necessarily the brand of the appliance connected to the gas system.
