Magma Grill Question

I have the Newport model and wish to connect it to the 20lb. house propane tank.
I have the A10-225 hose kit and the A10-220 Valve, but can''t figure out how it is supposed to hook directly to the grill.

Anyone?

Magma Grill Question

I have the standard Magma grill and connect directly to my 10lb bottle w/o problem, using an extension hose kit & valve. Not familiar with the Newport valve connection, but perhaps this diagram from Magma will help . . . (cut & paste the entire url)

Magma Grill Question

After the bottle there must be a regualtor or the pressure will be too high for the grill. A selonoid is also required for safe operation. Mine is before the regualor as my stoove uses it too. The stove does not require a regulator.

I have a shut off for the line that goes to the grill located after the regulator so I can disconnect the hose to the grill but leave it attached to the valve on the grill. It hand tightens fine.

I set up the grill then attach the hose to the 10-220 valve. You can get the hose and fittings at any propane dealer. It''s not a special marine hose. Some times a few more feet helps to locate it where you want.

The issue I''m having is where the A10-220 valve attaches to the Newport itself. The actual mating of the two pieces...

The original regulator that you would screw a 1lb. bottle into has a notch that you must align while sliding it into the base of the grill...the A10-220 does not have that notch.

Anyone using the Newport with house propane?

PhotoEd,
According to the Magma Valve Application Guide, it seems that you will need the A10-220, Type-3 valve for the Newport grill. The A10-220 is noted as being the old type.

http://www.magmaproducts.com/Index/Valve_Application_Guide.pdf

The Newport manual link, also makes note of this with an assembly diagram on page 6, showing the notched "lock detent".

Thanks to everyone for their time!
What I found out is that I have an outdated A10-220, and that the NEW A10-220(Type3) has the connector I need...and it''s on the way!

Anyone need the old style? It''s bronze in color and doesn''t have the detent.
