Furrion Grate - Bad Design

Is it just me or is the grate on Furrion stoves, the most ill-conceived and hazardous design ever!
If our coffee pot or any smaller pan/pot is not squarely over the center of the burner, they will tip over into the large gaps in the grate.
Do these design engineers ever test the junk they create?!

"But we saved $.75 in metal by designing it like this!"

The people that design them don't use them.

Do they make a "plate" that you can put on the stove first, then put your skillet or coffee pot on top of?

I gotta say, that's just flat out horrible.

Replaced this junk with these. Much more stable and now we can use the stove top without risk of scalds and burns!

Were they made specifically for Furrion stoves. They fit like a glove!

Our 2020 HT fiver came with the grate you replaced yours with. I'm quite surprised they fit your stove. A word of caution, however, the front grate, with the center burner, has a double cast iron bar across from side to side toward the front, but only a single toward the rear. Our front grate cracked almost dead center where the highest heat from the burner hits it.
Replaced under warranty, but watching it when in use, I think the high heat causes too much expansion. I am trying to use low heat at first so it doesn't heat too rapidly. I won't know until I'm out of warranty if it fails again.

They are Furrion grates and our stove top did have the 4 mounting holes w/grommets already. So they just drop right in and do fit like a glove.

I got them online from etrailer.com
