not grilling

Rockwood owners, did your travel trailer come with a grill? If so, did it also include the propane hose to attach it? We have had 2 Rockwoods with grills. We are finally going to use the one with our 2015 Windjammer. We got the grill put together but no hose. What do I need? Do I also need a regulator? We aren't comfortable using the grill beside the camper, so we will put it on a metal table. Can I use a longer hose? Thanks for the advice!

The grill, mounting rail and hose pre-connect are an option, not standard.
If your Windjammer came with the grill option, it should have the hose too.

We had a Rockwood 2604WS. Our grill hooked to a quick disconnect gas line that was on the side of the trailer between the doors. The grill also mounted to the side of the trailer. The quick disconnect was behind a small sliding door.

X2 on our 3008 Windjammer. I bought a 6 foot hose from Camping World and a set of quick connect connectors and could extend the reach another 6 feet beyond what I could with the hose attached to the trailer. The hose in the trailer is already regulated.

This is what I was thinking of doing. I didn't think I needed the regulator but wanted to be sure. Propane and fires don't offer many second chances. Thanks!

Yes, ours came with everything needed, but like you, we're not comfortable with it being so close to the slide out.

Of course, this is a personal thing.
But the vast majority of RV owners DO use theirs on the side of the RV.

And having been a member of numerous RV forums for over 12 years, I have NEVER read any post of these grills catching the RV on fire nor causing any damage.
If this really was an issue, I doubt if RV manufacturers would still be equipping them for the past couple of decades.
Lawsuits alone would've made them discontinue them.

The only issue I had with ours when I had a mini-lite was the smoke got trapped under the awning and sometimes was sucked into the kitchen window when the fans were running.

Glade to see ya using beside the camper instead of the way they want you to use attached to the camper. I chose to have the dealer give me a credit for the stove as I would never use especially attached to the side of the camper. BTW they left the hose in the camper so mine did come with it don't know what to do with it.

My opinion is is Just an accident waiting to happen. Ya the bunch that says no way, yep Murphy law will make it happen someday. Later RJD

Just ordered the suggested hose from Amazon. We did find the original hose but still like the idea of moving it away from the camper. Thanks for the comments.

What do you use to clean it? We have used it once. It was great. Clean up was tough. I used easy off to get it clean enough to put back in the bag.

Love the grill! The bracket holds the grill far enough away from the RV to allow air space all around, it's just a small grill. We slide the bracket down the molding so it is away from things like the awning arm, and the plastic vents. Every use I wipe it up with paper towels, and maybe a little dish soap, that way there is not so much stuff baked on. I bag it that way to go home, and give it a good cleaning at home.

Ours comes apart for easy cleaning. The grates, and catch pan all came out easily and put back together easily. It was like new when put back after washing.

When we had the RVQ bbq grill I had to pressure wash it about every time I came home because it was such a stinking mung pit. The grease collected in the flame deflector tray and in the bottom really bad. That was the one that came with a '07 Jay feather. Been using the Weber Q ever since. Maybe they are better now

No I think they're pretty close to the same thing. I had one with my 2003 pop up, a little heavier metal, and no temp gauge, but almost the same design. I use a lot of foil to bake/grill, and not a lot of greasy hamburgers. Chicken has a tendency to make a greasy mess, but I paper towel it all up when I am done.
