I have a propane grill that normally would hook up to an outlet on the trailer. I would like to convert it to use the small propane bottles you buy at Walmart, but the connections are different. I have look at other sites on the internet and do not find ready made hoses. Also, is pressure a problem? Suggestions

You would need to add a regulator. The grills that work off of a quick connect are regulated at the trailer vs something like a Coleman grill that works off of a 1 lb propane tank and has its own regulator.

I think thats what old was getting at, some are high pressure some aren't. You need to see what you have first. Then go from there.

If your grill has a gas burner control without a regulator and has a hose with a male quick connector you will need the items below.

BBQ

Low pressure propane fittings are common on RVs and you may need to remove the BBQ regulator as the use of 2 regulators may give inconsistent propane pressure.

This is my high pressure adapter with a El (for hose routing considerations) and a shutoff valve. The top external tank port came with the adapter. The BBQ connector is the standard 1lb 1" screw on propane bottle type.

Hoses with the standard 1” screw on adapters are available. And an adapter for the standard BBQ regulator fitting are available. Propane stores can also make custom length hoses however I use 1 or 2 12' hoses as needed.

Here are the parts that connect to any grill.

He wants to connect his grill that currently connects with a hose to a low pressure propane port on his trailer so that he can use 1 pound (high pressure) Coleman propane cylinders to power his grill.

He didn't mention what brand or model BBQ grill it was. If there is no existing conversion kit for his specific grill, he will need an 11 inch water column BBQ regulator, a low pressure female quick connect and a steak saver type male acme x female coleman adapter. I listed 2 parts above that will work with his current grill and existing hose.
