Congrats on the coach! I got the factory grill and gave it to my kids for their 5er. I went with one like Garrett due to storage. The factory unit took a third of our rear bay. Now the grill item fits in the water bay with next to an outdoor fan (we swap the fan for a oil heater in that space for cold weather flights). I suggest you find homes for everything and determine how big you can fit in the alloted space. As we have a 2300 we pack like a space shuttle, but we carry about everything a grown boy would want to support the mission....

X2 on the power protection.

Consider getting a 4 pack (lowes, home d) of matched key padlocks (key numbers on the back of the master lock package for multi packs), nice to have a single key. Yes, I do lock up my power protection as we do over night side trips while camping.

I threw away the grill that came with our 21FBRS and bought the Richman Traveler at Costco. Built like a tank, all quality stainless and cooks good, no actually great! The only problem it that it is quite heavy, over 50#, and somewhat large. Will not fit in our storage area.
I think we will use it on our deck and purchase the Napoleon TravelPro 285.
Less than 30#, about 2/3 the grill area, and smaller overall, more suitable for RV life. Those that have them rave about their cooking ability, most say better than Webber Q 2200...and that's saying a lot!. I don't know about the other 285 models, and only have had excellent reports on the PRO285.

I have the same grill. What I like about it is 20,000 BTU and gets the job done. It is $99 from Samsclub: Member's Mark Portable Stainless Steel Gas Grill - Sam's Club

I even use one at home and am very happy with it.

Looks like a clone, except for temp gauge, of the 99 buck Sams Club one I use. 20k BTU is awesome! I would not use a grill with less heat output.

I have a Webber Q and hate it, it doesn't get hot enough. We like to make pizza on the grill and you can't do that with the Q. I have a Webber Genesis at home and love that and just assumed the Q was of the same quality but I was wrong. I was looking at the one at SAMs and it looks great for the money.

Wow! A lot to consider. Thanks for all the input. Much appreciated. Can someone explain the surge protector or should I start a new topic? Don't want to break any rules. 😁

This is the first grill thread I've ever read that wasn't overwhelmingly in favor of the Q.

I also threw away the grill that came with my 2860ds. It was junk. I use a 2 bur eric.richmond@penske.com camp chef stove with cast iron pots and fry pans. I am a chef and feel meat cooks better in a cast iron pan. Also if you ha e slides figure out how to make manually retract them and what size socket you need to do it. Super important
