Santa Cruz, CA (December 15, 2021) – Grilling in the great outdoors just got a lot easier for RV and travel trailer owners with HitchFire introducing a brand-new RV Kit allowing users to hook up a Forge 15 Grill or Ultimate Grill Station™ to an on-board propane supply. Guided by a passion for adventure and “Life Around the Hitch”, the new RV Kit allows HitchFire to expand their compatibility to a new set of vehicles.
The Kit provides the option to easily switch between on-board propane and a standard propane tank without reinstallation. Included with the kit is (2) new valves, (2) 24″ quick connect hoses, (1) 12-foot quick connect hose, (1) brass Y-fitting, (2) brass quick connect fittings for the temp control valve, and (2) new regulators that work with the quick connect fittings. Installing the kit is simple and requires changing out the valve assembly on your RV or Travel Trailer and installing a new valve that can connect to the quick-connect hoses or the included regulator for use with (2) 1lb propane bottles. The new valves are rated to 10k BTUs each so you will get more power and bring the grill up to 20k BTUs for increased grilling power.
The RV Kit is compatible with regulated propane sources only and is not for high-pressure or unregulated propane sources. The kit is available now with an MSRP of $179.99.
“As much as we enjoy introducing new products like The Ultimate Grill Station, we’re equally excited about introducing accessories that extend the usage one can find with HitchFire,” said Evan Currid, HitchFire CEO and Founder. “Catering to all types of vehicles is a priority for us, the RV kit is another way we’re hoping to accomplish that.”
Launched in 2020, HitchFire’s Forge 15 can withstand miles of pavement or trails while securely attaching to your vehicle’s 2” receiver hitch. Launched in May 2021, their new Ultimate Grill Station™ offers a suite of grilling accessories including a side burner and maple cutting board that integrate seamlessly with the Forge 15 grill. These products, and the new RV Kit are available for purchase on hitchfire.com
Inspired by adventure, road trips, and the love of the outdoors, HitchFire leads a new category in hitch-based accessories, the rugged, hitch-mounted grills and accessories are purpose-built, made with the highest quality materials, and designed to withstand the roughest weather and toughest conditions for a world full of undiscovered trails and expeditions. It’s not just a grill, It’s Adventure Grilling™.
