Hi all,

We have just traded in our Cub on a Goldstream Wing 2. We have had an external gas outlet put on the side so we can connect up our Weber Baby Q. The outlet has a bayonet fitting. We have a gas hose to connect to the van outlet. Do we need to connect this hose up to the Weber via its regulator or since the van gas bottle already has a regulator on it can we remove the Weber regulator line and connect from the van outlet directly into the weber.

Hope that makes sense,

Cheers,

Thommo

Thommo,
We run our baby Q straight off the baynet fitting on the van and the original hose and regulator with a gas bottle for when we take the off road camper trailer.
Both work equally well.

Hi Thommo,yes there is a hose you can buy that has bayonet fitting on one end and a fitting to go into Weber ,most camping shops have them in varying lengths ,always better to get long length as the wind does change ????????

Thanks Bigred13. I do have a hose with the bayonet fitting. My query is whether I have to run that through the weber regulator or whether I can remove the weber hose and regulator and run the bayonet hose direct into the weber (since there is already a regulator on the van gas bottle). I don't want to take an extra gas bottle with me.

Cheers

Thommo ,yes sorry , what I meant to say was, yes connect your hose directly to the weber , no need for regulator as it already has gone through regulator ,it is just another outlet ,same as HWS ,stove etc ,cheers and let me know when the T bones are ready ????????????

hi
Only regulate your appliance bbq, hot water once .

2nd option
Install a t piece with ball valve and female POL [with dust cap ]
Where between van bottle and van regulator .
This system allows for any bbq hose and reg found in any town .
If the bbq hose is not long an extension of up to 3mtrs can be purchased at any gas store.
