I pulled the anode rod and let it drain, and it does look pretty sealed up. However, the water runs over the edge and follows it around to the underside before dripping. I could probably make some sort of guide to run the water away better.

I'm thinking I either didn't have the rod in enough, or it was just expansion. I'll get a socket and tighten it up a bit next time!

Thanks!

Here are some photos! imgur: the simple image sharer

The last photo shows a really simple PVC drain with vent for my gray water. It seemed to work well!

Here's a photo of the grill. I rigged something up to hold it in, but I'd prefer to use the supplied pins. That lip on the bottom half of the grill covers the holes.

FYI, Ben--

The Smiths, Greg and Rachel, are another DSM-area couple with an A122BH. They have a 2013 model. They're camping at Jester this week, until Friday. Just thought I'd mention it if you wanted to compare notes with a similar unit's owners. Don't know their site number but they should be easy to find.

for the stove, not sure if i understand your pic, but slide the grill onto the horizontal arms, all the way back, and then open the grill and the little pinholes in the two horizonal arms should be visible to insert the pins through. you cannot access the pinholes when the grill cover is latched however.

regarding the anode rod, use teflon tape before "snugging it up" with a ratchet. the coarse threads can have a tendency to freeze/corrode in place otherwise. the teflon lubricates the area so removal is easier and helps prevent corrosion issues.

Sorry that's not the best picture of the grill... The background is in focus instead of the grill!

It is pushed all the way onto the arms in that picture. There are square stops welded to the arms, and the stove stops at them. It's hard to see, but the hole in the arm is under that lip on the top of the bottom half of the grill.

I believe there is more than one type of this grill, so maybe mine is a newer, different model. The older models had a warming rack above the grill, and this one doesn't. I'll see if the dealer knows anything about it!

I had the same trouble with mine until I looked close and saw the pin holes
