The older models slide on from the end. The newer ones use the tilt on method. Don't know exactly when it changed. Our 2012 Roo had the slide on. Our 2016 Mini Lite has the tilt.

How is it dangerous and what is your basis?

We've used ours for 7 yrs hanging on the rail and no evidence of any harm to the trailer or awning which is always out while it is in use.

No it will still clip under.

I'm pretty sure mine just hangs from the top edge. I don't THINK it clips. (I've only used it once, so bear with me.)

My old 05 flagstaff tt as well as my 11 sabre 5th wheel have the same rail.

If you lift the bottom of grill mount and set top in the upper groove then bring mount down it will lock into rail.
Done it a hundred + times.

To dark to take pictures tonight.
Tomorrow.

The hanger is C shaped and once it clips over the top, the bottom goes under the bottom of the rail. If you look closely, the bracket is curved on the top and L shaped on the bottom.

Always curious as to why peoe don't use the grill on the bracket. This is our 5th year. Never had an issue with it melting the TT or the awning.

If it's the same old rail they have been using for years. Just tilt it on. Mine is 2012. My neighbor has a 2015 same rail.
