Like has been said, the grill can only have one regulator in line. Since your grill has a regulator attached to allow it to be used with 1 pound bottles or bulk bottles, you MUST attach it to your trailer's tanks BEFORE the trailer's regulator.

OR

Do what I did and remove the regulator from the grill. Then you MUST attach it AFTER the trailer's regulator, I.E. to the trailer's propane outlet connection.

In order to retain the ability to use the grill with a stand alone bulk propane tank, I bought a propane hose with an inline regulator. I use either the propane hose WITH the regulator or the propane hose WITHOUT the regulator depending on where I want to draw propane from.

Look at Hutch Mountain for hoses, adapters, quick connect, and regulators.

I have a Magnum that came with a one piece regulator/control. Bypassing was not an option, since there would be no flame control. I found that Magnum has a low pressure control available. Might check with the manufacturer.

I have this same grill. It is supposed to come with hose and regulator. You should be able to hook up a quick disconnect type set up and remove or not use the existing hose. There is no hard plumbed in or built in regulator on this bad boy. Set up a quick connect if you coach doesn't already have one and have the other end attached to the grill.

worst thing you can ever tell me, it can't be done [emoticon]

Take off the propane regulator, get an adapter (IRC 1/8" pipe thread) to the quick disconnect you plump into the trailer propane system, and you're good to go!

Not all camp grills operate at 11" w.c. at the orifice. If they did, you would just need a needle valve at the grill to turn down the heat, if needed, when connected to the 11" rv quick connect. I had a camp grill that ran at 15" so when I connected it to the rv connector, 11" only gave it really low heat and it wouldn't cook anything. The grill mfgr tech support might be able to tell you the orifice pressure, if you get lucky, so you can then figure out what you need for the hose connection and control. BTW, I'm gas certified and I make all my own stuff.
It's too bad Marshall doesn't make this reg any more. Craig
