Question LPG Hose connections to be used with our blackstone grill

We recently purchased a hose with connections to be used with our blackstone grill and we cannot get it to light. We are not using a regulator. Not sure of the issue. I’ve read that there are different length male fittings used with the quick disconnect on the coach or maybe it’s the pressure. Just tried it tonight for the first time.

EDIT — These first 6 posts came from another Thread where it was difficult to see who was answering who.

How are you connecting to the grill itself?

Yes, it’s connected from the quick connect coming off the coach to the grill. We didn’t have a lp hose with the coach so Terry ordered one made for blackstone. Everything looked good but no lp getting to grill. Not using a regulator. I thought that port on the coach should be regulated.

Read my post below. I had the same problem. Even though the fitting clicks in it doesn't let any propane out because the hole in the end is to big and it doesn't depress the release valve. There is a certain letter code for that fitting.

You must use the blackstone regulator that came with the grill for 1lb bottles.

No regulator is going to cause a fire or worse!

This is very important. On the FC I can trace the quick connection right to the tank and can verify it has a regulator. Without a regulator, as far as I understand, its basically a bomb.

Also, don't forget a little soapy water to check of leaks after assembly.

The fitting on your bus needs a special male 1/4" quick connect. Although the one you have clicks in place the orofice at the end is too big and it doesn't depress the plunger to release the propane. I found this out after quite a bit of trial and air. MB Sturgis made different 1/4" quick connect fittings. They need to be paired together.

And you definitely need to use the supplied regulator that came with your grill. One end of the hose will have a 1lb bottle end on it.

Probably not your issue but figured I’d mention what happened to me last night. I hooked up my grill and hose then it wouldn’t light. Tried the knob a couple times, etc. Turns out the LP master inside the coach was turned off! Switch that on and presto

This was s my set up.

Bolted thru stainless tray into prethreaded holes for stock rubber feet.

Adjustable riser to support weight.

Notice the size of the hole is in the male Fitting. I think the current standard is actually bigger and it surrounds the plunger instead of pushing it in.
Fitting is marked 5LP-A-2
