1. Make gas connections.
A combination of pipe fi ttings must be used to connect the grill
to the existing gas line.
• If local codes permit, use an outdoor fl exible stainless steel
tubing gas connector, design-certifi ed by CSA International, to
connect the grill to the rigid gas supply line. 5/8" diameter line
is recommended. Using a wrench to tighten, connect the gas
supply to the grill. Use pipe joint compound on all non-fl ared
male threads. Do not kink or damage the fl exible connector
when moving the grill.
• Pipe-joint compounds suitable for use with L.P. gas must be
used. Do not use Tefl on® tape.
