YUCK - Nasty!

OK so who just changed the burner out in their Olympian 1400 gas grill ???

I can't believe that I've been out there cleaning this thing for the better part of 2 hours! My old burner zippered and the flame was coming out of a 3 inch long slit on one side.

I can't believe how old this thing is and it still keeps on working. I must have bought this thing 10 years ago at the Camping World in Sweedsboro, NJ when there were only a handful of them. I bought the replacement burner here at one of our 2 CWs here in Myrtle Beach.

I try to get most of my RV stuff from Bill @ RVUpgrades but some stuff has to come from CW too.

This burner should last another 3 or 4 years so I won't have to revisit that yuck task for a while!

No Olympian, but I have a twenty three year old Ducane at home that I've had to change stuff on(five grates-two top, three bottom ones, both burners-twice, two regulators and hoses and two sets of perforated ceramic tiles, for even heating). Love the thing, but it is a chore to clean. Ya just can't beat the taste of something grilled, so think of the 'yuck factor' as a badge of honor. Weber Baby 'Q' for the RV... Bob

I have never had to fix my Coleman but then it's not as old as yours.. Cleaning it however is a bit of a job.. Two levels of cleaning.

Level 1: I use a wire brush on an "Angle Grinder" This does a fantastic job on burned on crud on the reflector pans.

About once a year I disassemble and use the car wash wand on the lower pan.
Home is where I park it!

Your grill sounds a lot like my uncle's old axe. Over the years it's had 4 new handles and 2 new heads, but it's still the same ol' axe.
