Jayco gas grill

We have a 2012 Greyhawk 31DS which came with a gas grill and a bracket to attach it to the side of the motor home near the propane hookup. Just wondering if anyone has used this bracket and if causes any discoloration on the side of the motor home. I was thinking of getting an extension hose so that I could place the grill on a picnic table, however the extensions hoses are relatively expensive. If there is no problem using the bracket, I would just as soon use that.

Jayco gas grill

I have the RVQ grill which attaches to the side of our 25rks and the side of the trailer doesn't get warm. I don't think it would be a problem.

The grill that came with ours is ok, but it is not great. I did notice some heat transfer to the side wall. It was also up under the awning which I did not like. Over time, it would cause damage to the RV sidewall and awning. I would rather carry a different grill and set up on a table away from the RV. We bought a Weber Q200. It's big enough to cook for a good sized group, and after I un-pin the lid, i can store it in the side storage compartment in two pieces.
I am using the Green propane bottles, but have read that some are running it from the RV propane connection for the grill you speak of.

I use mine and have for 3 years with no problems to the side of my 5'er. I don't use it every day, but I do use it.

A propane hose and the fittings needed to adapt it to a QC are going to run you around $25 max. Relative to the cost of your rig, what do you consider expensive?

I retrofitted my Weber BBQ with the correct quick disconnect fitting and a 12' hose. I do not use the trailer mount any longer. No issue with discoloration, just the spot the bracket was in. It was very inconvenient. I think you would prefer a freestanding grill and not depend on the location of the bracket.

Thanks for the responses. When I was looking at the extension hose and fittings at CW the price was around $75. I've heard that the grill is not great but if the fittings will work with another model then the extension would be a a good investment especially at $25.

I bought a 12 foot extension hose and canabilized the fitting from the grill to connect our campfire in a can to the quick connect on the coach. It was costly, roughly 1/1000th the cost of the coach but costly none the less. They get you on it being the "proper" hose. no doubt you could rig up a hose much cheaper. I still have not found a source for the RV quick disconnect. It is a different one than used on homes.

I bought the fitting at my dealer for less than $15.

Two brands of quick connects that come to mind are Hansen and Fairview. They can be found all over the Internet. Hanson has both high and low pressure fittings so if you use that brand, be sure you match the male/female correctly. Stick with the low pressure connectors if you go with the Hansen fittings. They will be compatible with just about anything you use. I have both Hansen and Fairview connectors on my grill stove, and hose. Stay away from Mr Heater. Their components are not compatible with anything but Mr Heater.
