Ep. 28: RV-Mounted BBQ Grill | RV camping how-to tips & tricks | Grand Adventure


Hi, welcome back to Grand Adventure! I’m
your host Marc Guido. We’ve been looking for a better grilling solution for RV
this season. We wanted something that we could mount directly to the RV and leave
it there when traveling, and we’ve actually come up with a great solution.
We’ll show you on this episode of Grand Adventure, so stay tuned. [Grand Adventure theme music] Now, we looked around online and we found
several solutions but none of them were exactly what we wanted – they were big,
they were heavy, they were expensive or maybe you couldn’t leave them on the RV
when traveling. My goal was to free up some basement space and make it a lot
quicker to be able to use the grill, so I wouldn’t have to lug it out of the
basement and plug it into the propane and disconnect and put it away each time
that I used it. My wife had a great idea. She said, “Why
not look at the marine industry?” You know, oftentimes marine products are a lot
better than RV products and in this case it really turned out to work out well
for us. We decided to go with a Magma marine kettle grill. These have literally
been around for decades. They normally mount to the rail of a boat, but I got to
thinking, you know our ladder on the back of our RV isn’t really much different
than a boat, and if a mount can withstand the slamming of a boat into
the water, it certainly ought to be able to handle traveling down the road. So now
we’ve got the kettle grill installed. We’re also running off the low pressure
propane. You can see that the hose goes back to a low pressure fitting on the
side of our trailer. so it’s running off the house propane. That bracket, all you
do is loosen it by hand and it could be swung back against the trailer while
traveling or extended outward into that position while cooking. Let’s head out
into the field and give it a try on the road.
So here we are in the southern Utah desert after a five-hour drive from Salt
Lake City and the grill rode beautifully. iI didn’t work its way loose even
the slightest bit from all the road vibration, including some pretty heavily
wash boarded dirt roads. Speaking of dirt roads, I keep this cover on it while
traveling. That keeps it clean, especially with that dust cloud behind the rig
while you’re traveling down a dirt road. Let me swing this into position and show
you what we do. Just loosen this a little bit by hand and rotate it out away from
the rig for cooking. I’ll take the cover off and I’ll show you. So here it is all set
up for cooking I’ve got the low pressure regulator on here but it also did come
with the one-pound regulator for the one-pound canisters so
I can use that for quick roadside cooking if I want to. The lid is hinged
so that way you don’t have to worry about it falling over, and it doesn’t
take up any additional space to open so it can be right up against anything in
this position. It’s far enough away from the rig that I’m not concerned about any
damage from the heat. It does heat up very quickly. We used it to cook when we
got here on Friday night. I’m extremely happy with this idea! So that’s going to
do it for this episode of Grand Adventure. Tune in next week, we’ll be
exploring this area of southern Utah. We’re in La Verkin. We tried to get onto
Gooseberry Mesa but boy, it’s a busy Easter weekend down here in southern
Utah. Beggars can’t be choosers, and we had to have room for three rigs, so we
got this spot over on Sheep Bridge Road, which you may remember from our Zion
episode. Thank you very much for coming along with us. If you liked this video,
