I always wanted one of those Csmp Chef stoves, but the size and weight kept me away so I have been using my coleman 2 burner stove I purchased in 1982 that is still going strong.

We use our Sidekick grill all the time. I did cut off the top rack as it does seem very useless. On a side note, I purchased a 5 lb bottle and an 8' hose and regulator assembly for my mine also. That way i can move it somewhere else if I am cooking some really greasy food that flames up a lot, or even take it to the beach or on a picinic. The wall bracket for the grill also works as a stand for the grill.

I use my RVQ mounted to the side of the TT.
It isn't real uniform as far as heat goes, but gets the job done.

When it wears out, I probably won't replace it with same.

I'll get a Weber or something stand alone.

I wouldn't grill that close to the trailer and awning.
I used my grill mount to mount a TV.

We debated about just getting a Coleman. Our friends whom we camp with every month have one and it works just great. Their parents bought them the same Camp Chef that we have for Christmas and they haven't used it yet. If you're just cooking for two or just one thing the CC is a bit of overkill. But when we group camp and take turns cooking and I have a lot to cook, it's a rock star. Cooks fast (watch out of it burns!) and cooks a lot. If it's just for two and it's just chili, it's a bit much and I'd rather have the Coleman. Different strokes for different campers AND different camps!

Hey Mcfarmall, could you please take a pic and post it up next time you use it? Also where did you get your 20 foot hose to use, and what kind of grill? I read somewhere that there might be regulator issues with some grills.

Thanks in advance.

Lurker-- The regulater issue comes into play when you tap the gas line after the regulater on the tt and your grill also has a regulater, therefore the pressure is too low at the grill. Grills like the RVQ II don't have a regulater so they can be plugged into the quick disconnect( which is after the tt regulater) under the tt . You can tap the gas line, on the tt, between the tank and the regulator and go to a standard grill which as a built in regulator. Am I clear as mud lol Larry

Most hardware stores and rv suppliers have the longer hose and quick disconnect connections. Just remember the LP from the frame mounted Quick Disc. is already regulated. If your grill has an internal regulator, you may not get the heat you want without more mods.

There are loads of threads and pictures on this forum on this subject.

I purchased an adapter from Marshall Gas controls that connects to the tank before the regular on the TT. From there I plug in a 12 foot hose to the coleman stove. I think I got those parts at Adventure RV.

We use ours all the time. Not a lot of cooking space, but it works great for my wife and I.. She'll cook the side dish in the camper, I'm cooking dogs, burgers or chicken outside. No issues at all.
