Tapping into the pre-piped propane pipes - 2 regulators?

I am looking to put an adapter on the T that already exists on the Sunline camper. The current T comes out in the middle of the camper on the door side pre-piped for just this use.

My question: Will the gas grill work if the propane is going through 2 regulators?

First the camper regulator and then the grill regulator.

I don't want to pull the regulator off of the grill because I use it separate from the camper also.

Looking to use something like this any other suggestions are welcome. LP Hose Kit / Valve
Part # :14-8804 | Manufacturer # :LP-FQDFIT-FV | UPC # : 799530461619

You can run two regulators your stove of instance all ready does. Just be real sure you have no leaks!

Mine stove didn't work, pressure was to low. I had to tee in before camper regulator.

Not a good plan the stove regulator is required behind a main regulator by code.

By stove I meant Coleman Road Trip Grill. Will not produce a good flame through 2 regulators. This is the tee I use to bypass camper tee. It's made by Camco. It screws into where the disposable bottle goes on grill regulator, eliminating the need for disposable bottles.

Yeah OK but in that case you kind of have too in order to make the stove work. That is an OK arrangement any way because it is out side of a living area and was intended to have full pressure at the regulator using the !# cylinder.

I have the old Road Trip grill and I took off the regulator and found the proper quick connect for LP. The LP low pressure quick connect is similar to but NOT the same as an air hose quick connect.

Here is what I made up:

Yeah that will work if you are past the camper regulator. Those fittings should have a shutoff valve right at the disconnect in order for the fitting to be removed. I'm not real fond of hose clamps but it is low pressure.

I had an existing low pressure outlet with a shutoff. The hose clamps are not a great idea but for the low pressure it works. I got that idea years ago from someone on rv.net that had done it.
