Anyone have the outdoor grill option?

I was wondering if anyone has this and uses it. I have mine still in the box sitting in the back storage bay of my 2011 Eagle Superlight. I'm doing a small 2 nighter close to home this weekend just to get used to my trailer and things I might need but forget to take. Will help me better prepare for the longer journies.

So regarding the grill option, does this thing use propane? If so, I see no propane outlet or anything to connect to on the side of the trailer where the grill would sit on it's hinge. Do I need to actually remove one of my tanks off the tongue and bring it over to the grill?

Also, is there any danger having a hot grill sitting on the side of a trailer? I sure wouldn't want to heat warp the fiberglass shell while cooking.

Thanks,
Chris

I had an RVq grill on my old Antigua and have an outside stove on my Jayco. There should be a gas quick connect under the camper near that bracket. In addition, you should have received a rubber hose to connect the grill to the RV gas quick connect line. You should not need to remove a tank.

Thanks Karl. I will look underneath for that quick connect. I'm assuming the hose is in the box with the grill but who knows. Problem is that the grill option I think was added on after leaving the factory so I may not actually even have that quick connect underneath.

Where in Southeast, NY are you by the way?

The prep for outdoor grill is standard (at least on 2011 models) so it should be there. I live in the town of Southeast (10509) which often goes by the village name it contains, Brewster. It's in Putnam county just north of Westchester.

It is a 2011 model so I should be good to go then. Thanks.

Ahh, the town is actually called Southeast. Thought you meant just in southeast, NY which, me being out on Long Island, I am. I suppose you must get that alot. ;-)

I wish I had the grill, but couldn't finagle it into the deal. I have a 2011 and it is set up for the grill though (side rail and quick connect underneath), so I would think that yours is setup as well.

On our '08 the quickconnect is down low on the curb side about a foot from the steps. Your '11 might be different. When we had our hybrid I didn't want to use the grill attatched to the camper so I rigged up a stand. Link, and do the slide show.

I did not opt for the BBQ because I prefer to grill away from the TT. My TT came with the quick disconect propane hook up from the factory.

We have always used a grill (RVQ or simular) with our campers. Our pop-up grills were mounted at a good height for use.
The mounting bar on the HTT is too high for comfortable use (need to stand on a box or something) and I'm almost 6' tall.
Maybe the engineers were thinking about child safety, or they weren't thinking at all.:lightning:
We still use the grill, but I wish it was lower. And NO I'm not going to move the mounting bar down and put more holes in the side.

The quick connect should be under the RV and just a little over from where the bracket is.. it looks like a hydroloic connector with a (usually) yellow plastic plug in it...
