Make sure you have removed the regular off the blackstone. Its not needed since there is a regular on the camper.

Using that fitting shown directly off the tanks there's no need to remove regulators. That's only necessary if connecting other appliances after the oboard rv regulator, this fitting is before that regulator.

One thing to think about when using the RV LP tanks for outdoor cooking etc. is how rapidly you deplete them. I do a lot of outdoor cooking so filling a tank is something I think about. It is a 1 hr. round trip to get my 30lb. tank filled and I can swap a 20lb. tank at the local dollar store in about 15 minutes - the hours are much better too. You've probably already thought of that but figured I would throw it out. It's one of the primary reasons I just carry 2 20lb. tanks. Not much of a deal in summer time but could get tiresome in the winter if running the furnace.

I only know I had to remove the regulator from my black stone so I could get a good flame. After checking with blackstone and propane company that was my problem. It had two regulators. The one on the camper at the propane tanks and the one on the blackstone. Once I removed the on on blackstone all worked just fine. Mine might be different.

Yes Sir I agree, my issue is that we like to also use the coleman stove and propane light in addition to the Blackstone, so we run a main hose to a "tree" to supply all.

I agree if you're connecting the grill to the QD that came on the rv, YES you will need to remove the grill regulator. The fitting shown connects directly to the LP tank so it has the full pressure of the tank so no need to remove the grill regulator.

Years ago I used a 20 lb tank with a distribution "T" to supply a grill and Coleman lantern. The lantern screwed on to the top of the tree which was supported by the lp tank. That wouldn't have worked if the tree was attached to a hose. I guess you could use a tripod to hang the lantern on tree.

Valve on camper to blackstone griddle

The valve you are talking about is a low pressure port. We have a blackstone griddle also. At your tanks up front, the pressure gauge diaphragm lowers the pressure to the rest of your camper. I'm almost positive your grille still has a diagram on it. It needs replaced with an adaptor hose for low pressure systems. It eliminates the diaphragm on the grille. You can't have a high pressure diaphragm lowering the pressure that's already lowered at the front of your camper. This will fix your issue. Happy camping

This is what my Nexgrill fitting looks like. I use a Y QC fitting with integrated valves just like the port under the trailer. Then my outside kitchen stove plugs into one port and I plug a 12 QC hose into the other leg to feed my Nexgrill. I simply unscrewed the factory regulated hose from the grill and installed the QC male fitting in its place.

There are two things in play:
The valve on the tank itself has a check mechanism that prevents flow from getting too fast. It is metered at the tank, and it is also metered to 11 in of water at the regulator. You will likely have to run a separate propane tank if you want to utilize another grill. Your grill has a regulator on it, as well, right?

Now, only there was only 1 regulator, the trailer. Still did not work. Why? The trailer regulator is low pressure, the Coleman is High Pressure. There's not enough pressure for the normal Coleman stoves, even if the Coleman regulator is 100% bypassed.
You are correct. The regulator for the trailer only goes to 11 inches of water. Very low pressure.
