Lots of diverse responses all have good common sense advice, think I will try using it but am now up to date on what to keep an eye on!

You have to wonder why the factory would put the grill bracket on the camper wall if it wasn't a good idea.
But then, my camper is worth well over 30 grand, do I really need to see for myself if it is actually safe?
Nope. Put it on the picnic table.

Those who do not own an Aframe do not understand the logistics of our little campers. Sure with larger campers you do have a windbreak .. but with ours there is little to none, as the back and front roofs slope at 45 degree angle. Add to this the window just above where the RVQ mounts, and if you have a the fantastic fan running it will suck the vapors/smoke right into the Aframe just as a previous Aframe poster reports.
Basically these little RVQ things hard to clean, flare up, and are just a poor idea. This is why you see so many Weber Q 100s and 120s sitting on the picnic tables.

Easy way to clean your RVQ's is what I do 2-3 times a year, Easy-Off Oven Cleaner cold formula. Just spray the crap out of the grill and let set 2 hrs, then take a stiff brush to it and then rinse clean, gets 99% of grease off body of grill and 80% of burned on gunk on grill grate.

And again you can remove the grill you speak of along with the bracket and turn it into a table top version.
With that said I haven't had an issue with flare ups its a low pressure stove and doesn't really have a big flame.
I use mine a lot and wonder why so many people complain about them so much.

If anyone wants to give there's away I'll gladly take them off your hands .

I haven't used mine yet - I can't figure out where to store it when not in use that is out of the way. :P

My wife and I use ours for burgers and steaks regularly. We love it.

When traveling it goes in the back of the tv or in the rear storage compartment.

No heat issues for us. We'll continue using in future seasons.

We don't live our lives by the "what if" mantra. we've used ours for 2 seasons now. No mess on the camper, the awning, and no problem with the decals. If the smoke is an issue with the fan on....turn it off before grilling. Seems like a no brainer.

In today's sue happy society I would think that the manufacturer did testing to ensure the proper amount of distance (airgap) to prevent any damage to the sidewall. I haven't seen any reports of it causing damage, and I know there's a ton of them being used.
