Crossroads 270BH BBQ

Hi all new to the RV thing!

Now for the dumb question can someone please show me a picture of how the BBQ mounts on a 2017 270BH.

I had it mounted but not understanding the back piece and how it functions???? I pull out the arms and put them thru the BBQ but can the unit swing on the arm that is attached to the bumper? It looks like the piece has stoppers but for what???

I don't get it any help especially pictures would be great

Thanks

The arm does swing with the BBQ mounted, posts in holes. The rubber bumpers are to keep the metal arms from clashing or rattling under transit or when setting up.
I'm not sure what you mean by "back piece and how it functions".

This is the only picture I have of the original BBQ set up. I've since converted the mount to hold a table and a Weber Q. This is one of my favorite features of the trailer. It's great having the grill next to the outside kitchen.

thanks for the picture! Mine is the same BBQ but has another attachment that slides into the 2 hole that are on the sides of the BBQ and hangs off the back I THINK? That is the part I am not understanding.

Also when I mount mine I cant get the arm to swing back to the bumper with the BBQ still mounted. I would think you should be able to do this? Am I wrong in thinking that? I believe you are saying yours does?

I will take a picture later when I get home and try to upload it

once again thanks for the reply

OK, I think I know what you are referring to. That other bracket I believe is for NOT mounting on the bumper arm. I think it is used ether as a table top stand, or some RV's have a slide in bracket on the side of the trailer that it can slide into. I never used that attachment.
I do not believe it is designed to keep the BBQ on the arm when in transit. I would pull it off and store the BBQ in a bag on top of the stove in the outdoor kitchen compartment.

johnwill had quite a few pictures of the rear bumper grill for his Zinger. Maybe seeing them might help.

that bracket you have a hard time figuring out is for mounting the grill on the side of the trailer onto a bracket screwed onto the trailer....you do not need that as you do not have that bracket on your trailer...leave that part at home.
the bbq has to be taken off before you swing the bumper swing arm back for travel.

Thank you now it all makes sense now at least I don't feel like a complete moron 😂 Just could not understand what the piece was for!

Thanks Harley

We have a second bracket that came with our ST BBQ on our 2013 CR ST 5er. The second bracket can be used to set up the BBQ on a table top when not using the rear bumper mount. It elevates the BBQ up off of the table so that the heat doesn't scorch the table top.
