How To Connect a Gas Grill to an RV
Step 1: Remove rust on your RV propane regulator.
Step 2: Use the 7/16 wrench and 3/8 wrench to dismantle the connection between the regulator hose and the valve. You can get a little bit of gas as you take this off if it has been pressurized before.
Step 3: Assemble the external propane tank adapter into a vacant position that you have just dismantled on step 2. A normal tool often has 4 positions in different ways to connect the hoses and valves.
- On the right of the adapter is a place that used to connect the RV propane regulator. On the left of this tool is used to link a valve of RV. On top of it used to connect a gas grill. The last position is used to assemble external propane.
Step 4: After you assemble the adapter and know exactly the positions to connect the hoses. It would be best if you equipped a small box covering the regulator to protect it.
Step 5: Use wrenches 9/16 and 7/16 to tightly the regular lefty loosey. We must worry about gas leaking so that we have to check it once more time.
Step 6: Turn the gas on and we are going to use the leak detector and spray it on assembled positions. If we have any leaks, we will see some bubbling. Otherwise, turn the valve of gas off and use the tissue to wipe off the solution.
Step 7: Use the short hose to connect a portable propane tank. Use a 12-footer length of the long hose to attach between the top pieces of the tank and end into your gas grill. Now check everything and start your grill!
