Quick release gas valve on Laredo under bumper

Does anyone know the size of the male portion of the optional gas valve quick release. I made up a extension hose and assumed that the male was standard with the other quick release valves listed. I don't even know how to ask for it. NPT?
It is bigger than the assembly I bought.

The quick release fittings are 1/4 NPT. Use yellow thread seal instead of the white tape, and be sure to use propane fittings vs the pneumatic fittings.

I know someone said 1/4 but I thought they were 3/8. I think those are your only choices or at least most popular. I originally used white tape which worked but changed everything over to yellow tape this year. I come off the quick connect to a T and then go to the stove and the grill to avoid the one pound bottles.

I just did the conversion on my Weber Q. The propane, QD fittings are 1/4 NPT, and are not available at any Lowes I went to. I bought the Camco hose from Walmart online and the propane QD fittings from a local RV store. CW online also has what is required. Either place sells Camco, which works well when adapting a Weber.

I also bought a hose with the regulator on the bottle end and a QD female on the other end for use at home on a 20# bottle.

I also just completed a conversion on a Weber Q100. Fittings are 1/4 x 3/8. I purchased MB by brand QD low pressure propane fitting from RV Parts country online. Needed a 1/4 x 3/8 male male and a 1/4 x 3/8 female female to set up the QD for both a QD hose from the trailer and the original regulator (leaving the option open to use a 1 lb cylinder if needed).

It took about a 1/2 hour total.
