Right side. We have a grill mount on the rear bumper.

welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. That is the mount for an outside BBQ. I just love mine and use it all the time, you can also use it to stand the BBQ on a picnic table.

It is definitely for the gas grill. It slides on and is pinned on with the pins. I have o e for mine. https://www.rvupgradestore.com/Sidek...ED96457AEB80AA

Interesting because until I sent this I didn't know I could use it off the trailer and with small tanks as well. My trailer has a propane quick connect hose. Learn something new every day.

Our grill needs a gas connection. Is there a charcoal only grill?

No idea but it seems odd to be by the outside TV connection

Thank you for your help. Can't wait to get our rig out for its inaugural trip.

Best of luck for you I am sure you will enjoy it. The hole below may have a quick connect to the propane on the trailer. Mine looks different but is about that size.

I never understood why FR puts the grill and table mount so high and under the electric outlet as well as tv mount on mine.

If that hole is not for a propane hose you can use the small tanks but it gets expensive unless you refill them. You can find the fittings on Amazon to convert if needed as well as refill the green tanks. I also adapted some gas burners outside to attach to trailer but I find induction burners works better when it's cold out.

That hole might be for the slideout crank.

FYI....the grill that FR provides for that rack, is absolutely horrible. Don't waste your money buying one unless you only plan to grill hot dogs.

If you take grilling seriously, you'll be disappointed.

You can take mine.

That hole is where the hose comes out from under the trailer for your propane connection. Look under there and you'll see it. Your trailer should have come with the hose. And the BBQ for that matter. Quick disconnect on each end. We've been using our BBQ since we got our trailer and have no problems with it. At first I was worried that maybe it was too close to the trailer, but it's not. Works just fine.

I'll take it! Always good to have a spare for when the first one wears out. And we do wear out our BBQs.

That mount can also be used with the arms vertical sitting on a table to mount the grill. Never really liked it on ours. Just replaced with a camp chef.
