Default LXI - propane high or low pressure

I have removed the electric factory grill and installed a stainless grill on the slide out over the tool box. I need to know for sure if the hook up for LP gas to the left of the tool box is it low or high pressure? I pulled out the bus drawings and it shows an internal regulator in the bus. Anyone use the gas hook up? Is the pressure high or low? I appreciate your help.

Frank mine is high pressure and requires a regulator on my BBQ to cut down the pressure. I once inadvertently hooked up without one and the results were a little scary.

Frank / Rob I also have hooked up a gas grill and also put a pressure regulator on. The valve is high pressure. I put mine on the end of the hose where I connect to the valve. Another thing I am wrestling with is I have the grill setup like the electric one was so you face the coach while grilling. The heat seems to be starting to slightly discolor the stainless steel panel on the lifted basement door. I am about to try turning the grill sideways to see if I can get away from the heat coming out of the back of the stainless steel grill and blasting onto the coach.

Good luck..
Rob

Rob's experience is the same as mine.
It is high pressure gas, about 150psi. Install a quick connect to plug into the bus fitting with a regulator install at this point. When I installed mine, I put the regulator at the grill. Took 5 minutes for the fire to go out after I turned the valve off on the bus. Then I realize I did not want a high pressure hose dangling over to the grill. Put a standard LP regular as close to the plug in LP source as you can.
Those quick connect fitting are available at any RV dealer.

Thanks everyone. This is the grill I bought to replace the electric. It fits well. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Extra-Heavy-...item4ad76f8af5

Rob, I placed my grill sideways to avoid the heat you are talking about.

Could one be mounted on a heavy duty slide, to get it out further? Or would that make it too tall to go in the compartment?

The SS one looks nice!

Turning the grill sideways solved the heat problem for me. I was more concerned if I had a big flare up from a steak. I did have a flare up and I was not concerned as it was far enough from the coach that I could put it out without worrying about scorching the stainless on the bottom of the door.

Turning the grill sideways also gives you a work area in front of the grill to set utensils. Slick set up.

I replaced the original BBQ with Solaire Everywhere Infrared grill. Fit perfectly in coach existing BBQ drawer. Turned it 90* for easy regulator use. Shortened propane door chain so door is more straight up while using the grill.

How do you like the infrared? Have heard various opinions, from greatest ever, to not very good.

Thanks.
