    Adding propane quick connect for bbq on 2018 Solitude 310GK

    Just picked up our new-to-us 2018 Solitude 310GK. I was surprised to see there is no propane quick connect for a bbq. I can certainly add one but would like input from someone who has done the mod and how you did it.

    Thanks, Ron

    Believe in that year they were using the manifold blocks too. Should be a couple of ports available. Usually the manifold is road side along the frame rail. Keep in mind, this will be low pressure and you grill converted accordingly.

    Got it, thanks. Yes I know about the low pressure issue; I removed the regulator from my Weber Q years ago. It's ready to go, I just need the quick connect set up!

    This is a dumb question but what would a manifold block look like?

    Lol. Follow the hose from the bottle down to the frame and towards the rear. In doing so, you will find a block of metal with plugged ports and other hoses branching off if it. That's the manifold.

    I took a look and there is a quick connect with a shut off behind the middle stabilizer and in front of the tire. Looks like it's feeding the fridge. I could possible come off that.

    Follow it back to the manifold. The slide disconnect is feeding your fridge and range. Need to branch upstream so you don't cause poor performance with the appliances.

    Unless you're saying you don't use propane for the appliances and want to connect your grill there. If you do, just remember to bleed air out of the appliances when you reconnect (light the range) so your fridge will fire on propane if you use that while in transit.

    Looks like the hard line (pipe) ends at the quick connect feeding the fridge. Before that there's a TEE in the line feeding a couple things. Don't see any manifold. Only the TEE and the quick connect. I'll keep looking.

    That could be all you have. I wasn't 100% when they switched to using manifolds. The tee is feeding the furnace and water heater. So you're best working at the slide disconnect.

    Got it. Thanks for all the help.

    And yes, you're correct; the tee is feeding the furnace and water heater.
