No, the bumper is closed on both ends. He says he's going to use plumber's tape to hold the fence post on and that will not affect the warranty. Our RV came with a "free" grill and a nice little table to put it on but the table takes up a lot of room. So he's interested in the grill holder that bolts to the bumper. He actually wanted an outdoor kitchen but we ended up, for many reasons, buying ours, a shorter class c.

Just a thought but if you are good at internet searching, you might be able to find a bumper mount of the flat table design at a Rv salvage yard.

I don't know why a bumper grill mount would void the warranty. Our trailer came factory equipped with one.

I'm sure your husband is aware of this, but plumbers tape is Teflon tape. It's is used for sealing pipe threads from leaking. It has no other use. If you ever saw it you would know why.

In some parts of the country the perforated metal plumbers strapping is called plumbers tape. Not to be confused with Teflon tape used to seal pipe threads.

Never heard that before, they always refer to it as pipe strap around here.

Quick shot of the BBQ all setup at camp. It is a great addition to the outside kitchen. Worked well.

Been a plumber in the Seattle area for over 30 years now and have always referred to the metal tape as plumbers tape. We call Teflon tape Teflon tape, not plumbers tape, never heard of Teflon tape referred to as plumber tape.

When I first went to Florida many years ago, I ordered a hero and the girl couldn't figure out what I was talking about...lol

Ha, I am from Louisiana and I thought plumber's tape was white Teflon tape. Only, we called it Teflon tape and it replaced joint compound.

I was VERY confused when he said he was going to use plumber's tape. But he described what I called a pipe clamp for plumbing, instead of pipe clamp for cars. Galvanized strips of metal with holes in it.

He is from Boise and has been in Seattle over 30 years. I thought I would sound intelligent if I threw that out about plumbing tape.

When I first moved to Seattle, I kept asking for my sandwich to be "dressed" and nobody knew what I was talking about.

The BBQ holder is great attached to the bumper and I really want one.
