Grill on the back of a 308BHS

My 308BHS has a grill on the back mounted to the bumper.

We use the thing all the time.

We picked up the trailer April 15 and the grill was just replaced under Warranty because it rusted out even through we kept the cover on it.

Any ideas on how to prevent this or who make the grill so I can purchase a spare one. There a no marking on it at all that I can see.

Sorry, I don't have an answer for you. You said you use your grill all the time. What is the trick for keeping the area under the grill grate clean and how do you manage grease?
Thanks

That is something I need to figure out. I believe that is what killed my grill. As you know it would just collect grease.

I was thinking of spraying it with layers of PAM.

Not sure if that works but I need it to last longer than 1 year

Bought a ss grill, drilled out rivets on old grill brackets, re-attached the brackets to ss grill, no more rust. Just make sure width is same.

What grill did you find that fit on the grill platform? I have not found one yet.

It was an Olympian 5500 by Camco. Because the burner plate is cast iron, I sometimes put Al foil on it and use with charcoal. Indirect heat method. The original cover works also.

Vibe Gas Grill Information

We purchased a 2017 268rks and it came with a Gas Grill from National Supply: Model #YH1801RV-1. 1-574-295-9200. It it attached to a stanchion that is bolted to the rear bumper and swings around to use with the outside kitchen. I attached a PDF file with a picture and details. We love it. Yes, I can understand that it will probably rust out quickly as it is very light weight steel; however, like you I would not complain about having to replace it periodically.

Good luck!

I would agree that's the same grill on all those bumper mount units. If you spray on couple of cans of BBQ paint inside and out you might get a couple of years out of it.
We used ours for the first time this weekend. It was already rusty. The grill itself is very cheap, a $20 disposable unit. The bracket seems to be well made and I will try to do like most and adapt a decent grill to it.
