Default ?? How to connect a portable propane generator??

I have a 2014 CS Adventurous and need some help hooking up a tri-fuel Yamaha portable generator to the BBQ pigtail on the van. I thought I needed a hose and a high-to-low pressure regulator between the van and the generator. When I went to check the connection on the van it is a quick connect. I need some kind of adapter from the van. Has anyone else hooked up a propane generator to their Roadtrek and have suggestions on what is the proper way to do this and where I can get the parts. Thanks for all the information that is on the forum. We have learned a lot, with much more to go.

Things may have changed with newer RT's but maybe not. It used to be that the pressure at the quick connect was around 10 psi. It was stepped down from full pressure through a high pressure regulator. The propane to appliances in the van goes through a low pressure regulator to further bring the pressure down to 11" water column. Two regulators were used; a high pressure regulator and a low pressure regulator.

My guess is that you'd need a model 250 male quick disconnect plug, a propane hose and a low pressure regulator (to get from 10 PSI to 11" WC).

I haven't tried this so don't blame me if you end up wasting money!

Maybe other forum members will share their experiences with the RT Quick Disconnect.

I am waiting for a response from Roadtrek but I think this is the adapter I need along with a hose & regulator.
