2499 Stove/Splash Guard

Hello,

We have a 2006 Sunline 2499, and have come to the conclusion the stove is too close to the couch. As of today, no close calls or accidents, but, it appears something spilling onto the couch is a real possibility. Has anyone installed a splash guard to the side of the stove to prevent damage to the couch? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Nick we bought a spash guard (Camping World) but never installed it......IF I have to cook in the TT I usually put a plastic tablecloth on the couch SOMEDAY the splash guard will be installed but until then....I'll just improvise!

Hi Nick

We had a T2499 and I agree the stove top is too close to the couch. We do most all cooking outside and never anything with grease in it inside. The fire risk of grease in a TT is too high for me.

I have seen some folks add a piece of clear plastic in that area. I myself never made it to that mod. Hopefully they will jump in here with a pic or too. If your handy with wood, make a small wood strip to extend out the edge of the counter that attaches under the counter to then attach the splash panel too. It is a trade off of hitting it while on the couch verses the splash guard being too close to the stove top and a pan hanlde hitting it. So adjust the filler strip accordingly.

Hope this helps

John

Sorry, I don't have a photo of the plexiglass splash shield that I had in my 2499. All I did was put some velcro on the side of the range hood and on the top side of a piece of plexiglass that was cut to size. It was sized to sit on the counter top and held in place with the velcro on the side of the range hood. Was removable for cleaning. Plexiglass was less than 10 bucks.

Nice, neat solution is the Camco Splash Guard. I didn't price compare but this link came up first so I used it. Nice part about this is that it's fixed, looks good and is workable and not overly costly.

That is the one we have and it still isn't installed........

After I read this post last night I went out to the TT and looked at the situation again.....John B was right in what he said - you will be limited to what could be used on that left back burner......

If I actually cooked in the Sunline I would probably still install it, regardless of how it limited the rear burner. Using the top burners really mandates having something there to protect the sofa and certainly anyone sitting near there as far as I'm concerned. As far as the rear burner is concerned, how many occasions are going to call for using all the burners? And if so, isn't the rear burner on the left the one that would most likely be a problem to the sofa?

That said, I have a Weber Q to cook outside, if I really want to. I use traveling with the Sunline as an opportunity to sample local culinary treats. I don't go on vacation to cook so I probably won't be installing one.
