Odd Placement of RV Grill Arm

I went to inspect and sign the papers on my new 23IKSS the other day. There was one odd thing that the dealer couldn't explain. The RV Grill stand that is connected to the bumper is in an odd location, and cannot be swiveled/extended without taking off the spare tire. The spare tire cannot be mounted more to the side because it will then block a storage compartment door. And the RV grill stand cannot be moved to the other side any more because it will project out past the side of the camper. Wondering if anyone else has experienced this or what they've done to remedy the problem.

I have the same unit and have used the grill several times. The arm bends to allow the grill to come around the side of the unit. The grill works great and have BBQ several steaks on it. Just bend the arm to move it around the tire. Not a big deal to do so.

So I picked up my roo yesterday but I'm still not seeing how the grill works without taking off or moving tire. Dealer said that was the way they designed it. I'm a little baffled.

Does the tire have a swing down arm?

It also looks like you have enough room to move the mount out towards the edge of camper more, possibly enough to clear the tire.

Have the dealer replace the tire mount with a tilt down style. This should allow the clearance for the swing out grill mount.

Loosen the 4 bolts and slide the unit to the right. Might take 5 minutes and problem solved.

It looks like the tire could be moved a smidge to the driver's side (slightly limiting how far you can open the compartment door - but, it looks to be slightly limited in its present location anyway), and the swing-arm (grill stand) can be slightly moved to the passenger side. Even if the swing-arm protrudes slightly past the edge of the trailer, it will not be any more than your speakers/awning/patio light already do.

Our 233S has a similar rear compartment that has the hinges at the bottom of the compartment (causing it to open door-down). Curious why they wouldn't do the same with yours.

My guess is that it's a quality control issue at the factory. Not surprising, but easily remedied. We had a few minor such issues when we first got our camper, but I enjoy "playing" with it, so making a few "corrections" allowed me an opportunity to better know the unit.

Enjoy the new camper! :-)

We have the same camper, and our grill is mounted a lot farther to the right. It extends past the side of the camper, but it's not been a problem because the amount is so slight. I'll try to post some photos.
