I was very fortunate not to lose another grill! After receiving excellent technical advice, I learned the importance of using those little clippy things on the grill brackets. They prevent the grill from falling off during towing!

You tow with the grill installed on the camper?

Ha Ha, That was a good one. Be sure to leave the gas line connected as a backup.

I hope the part about towing with the grill on the brackets is a joke. Can't really imagine anyone would try it.

I read where you posted in another forum about Forest River telling you to make sure the clips were engaged before pulling out of your site. There may have been a misunderstanding there.

You should not move the camper with the grill attached/hanging on your camper. This is just something you use while you are parked/stationary.

You will remove the grill and bracket, and stow it away in a storage compartment.....before towing your trailer....or driving your motorhome.

Argerram has got to be kidding! You say that you already lost one grill? Stow the grill and mounting arms before towing!!
