Question about Arctic Products Grilling
I have a side-kick gas bbq that attaches to the side of my RV. it fell off and the gas regulator broke, its the regulator that attaches to my propane tank with a quick connect. Please help me find the replacement part. ?
You can buy a gas pressure guage from any HVAC supply house, and possibly at a gas utility office or the retailer that sold the grill.
It taps into the manifold, or gas valve.
For most LP systems you are looking for 11 to 14 PSI but double check with your system. You may can find it on the owners manual or on the data sticker.
Be shure to shut off the gas before you remove the plug and hook up the guage. Most plugs are either allen wrench or square head plugs.

SOURCE: no gas getting to bbq
I switched to the new style 20# tank with the new turn-on knob. I couldn't get enough gas pressure to the BBQ burners for all three burners to light or to keep a strong flame on even one burner. The new style tanks have a safety valve on the inside of the tank that shuts the gas off if you turn the knob on too fast because the safety valve thinks there is leak. Shut everything off and then try turning the knob on real slow, especially at first, before turning it all the way on. If that doesn't work (it didn't for me), then replace the large plastic connection valve knob (female end) that attaches the regulator to the tank. Mine was for the old style tank and was black (low pressure). I went to a propane company and had them replace it with a green knob (higher pressure). Took it home and WALA! Everything works fine now. But it was very frustrating trying to figure why I couldn't get any gas to the burners after buying a brand new tank. I hope this helps solve your problems.

Most modern gas regulators have a safety feature to prevent gas left on. If you shut off the tank first and then turn off the burners, it will trigger and keep the gas flow at a very reduce flow to prevent you from turning on the tank again with the burners left on and not realizing it. Turn everything off and then turn on tank first, followed by the burners and this will solve most problems of a low flame or a bbq that won't get hot.
