Grill rail separating

My old Shamrock 183 had the rail screwed to the side and started to separate from the RV while I was cooking hamburgers. The tipping caused a small grease fire. Fortunately my fire pit gloves were handy so I was able to catch the grill (extremely hot) before it fully came off. I was able to later repair the rail, but the grill was not used very much after that. I mainly used it on a table as aufinger mentioned in post #12.
My current RV has the bumper mount and the grill works OK, but its rarely used. I simply don't like cooking or hanging out right next to the RV unless its a very short stay. Probably goes back to our tenting days. We typically erect an E-Z up over the picnic table and incorporate an outside kitchen somewhere between the RV and the fire pit.
