Ouside Rail for Grill

2006 27BH Jayco Jayflight

We have the rail on the exterior of our camper for the Grill, but the factory grill is expensive, has anyone modified something to work for other grills

Rail

I just bought the exterior rail from my dealer for 8 bucks. I have a Weber grill that I love and dont plan on using the grill in fear of melting the trailer.

That said I am using the rail to build a shelf for my outside TV...

I have the outside grill on my 2005 Jay Feather.
I used it once and only once. It just seemed too close to the trailer and awning.

I ended up building a frame to put the grill in and move it further away from the trailer.

Now, using the rail for an outside tv.......there's an idea!!!

Sorry, don't have time right now to check but did you post this tv rail in the MOD section? If not... please do!

I know there are a bunch of us who don't use that grill-option-rail that would love to see what you did with this otherwise use-less rail! HOw do you connect the tv to use it off antenna or sattelite? What size tv do you use? The frame itself? Pics too! Thanks

On another RV website I saw several posts about how to use the BBQ rail as a shelf. Last summer I saw a fellow camper who made a wooden shelf that mounted to the BBQ rail, he said it was easy and cheap. He had his flat screen tv on it and since it was under the awning the sun did not distort the picture. He also used a splitter from the cable hookup and sent a wire under the TT to the tv.

I also made a shelf for mine. I used the grill bracket, and made it out of wood. I haven't used it yet, but will let you know when I do. I never used the grill not for the fear of fire but the fear of having to clean any grease spatter from the side of the camper.
