Any one use the grill attachment?

Hi Everyone,
We just bought a used 2009 Jayco Melbourne 29C and we are so excited to have a forum to share and learn from since we are new to the RV life. Thank you for your patience and sharing in advance.

With only 3000 miles on it when it was delivered most everything is in excellent or "never-been-used" state and that includes the grill attachment. We are wondering if any of you have that feature and have tried grilling? Our concern is that the heat from the grill would damage the side panel paint.

What do you think?

Use mine all the time. It's far enough away from the side of the camper and the heat vents out the sides of the grill instead of the back. We've had no issues.

Us it all the time no problems but you should get a piece of plasic and put it on the panel behind the grill to keep the grease from making a mess and is hard to get off. I attach it with using velcro.

I use our all the time also. No problems. I just make sure I close the bedroom window right above the grill when I am grilling. It is one of those small crank out windows. Our RV is a Class C 31SS model. I also clean it real good and then store it in a large hefty plastic trash bag.

We use ours almost everyday when camping. The grill is just below the LR window so I make sure the window is closed. The only problem is the grill is mounted so high that I need a step stool to reach the grill, specially when having to add blocks on the grill side to level the 5th wheel.

This last weekend the hamburgers I was cooking were at eye level.

It's obvious that the people who design the placement of the grills don't use them.

I just modified my grill mount so it could be mounted upside down. That lowers it about 8 or 9 inches. Still too high but much better.

Happy Clam I've been using our RVQII grill attached to our tt, the bracket keeps it off the tt about a foot, no heat on the tt, no problem
