Outside Grill

2015 Rockwood HW 276. When tring to connect the outside grill the propane hose is not long enough, we had to move the grill on the bracket about 8" to the rear just to connect the hose but then we only got it to light and it acted like it was only getting half gas. flames were flickering. has anyone else ran into this? mounting it using the front bracket closest to the door.

It's possible there's some air in line unless it was a continuous "bad flame"
If it's a RVQ type grill they have a pretty low flame anyway.
But hey I like to cook low and slow.

no and i just checked the other ( rear ) bracket but that puts the grill way to far. calling dealer right now. just seeing if anyone else has ran into this. u would think they couldnt make this mistake. hose must have been missed numbered and for a diff model.
thank you for ur suggestions though.

No, they can really be that short. Take a look at my setup:



The Q has to be on the right with the shelf on the left because the hose isnt' long enough to do it the other way around. I probably only have 16" or so of hose available.
