Propane tank mount?

I bought this bracket thinking it was an OEM replacement. If it is, I am completely baffled. Does anybody have any idea how I can mount my propane tank, or is the pic where I show it on the way it is supposed to be? If it is, I don't like having the tank right up against the trailer, and there's no place to bolt it. The only thing that might keep it from popping off is that square hook on one end of the flat metal strap, but I'm not a betting man!

Thank you for any help here. We're off for our first long camping trip next Tuesday and I sure would like to get this baby mounted!

Frank

Well Frank when I first took a look at that bracket it reminded me of the one holding the small popane tank on my cheap backyard gasgrill. Did this thing come from a RV place? You need to support the bottom of your tank firmly in place with something structually sound, and then prevent it's potential movement both sideways and upward. Definitely do not gamble with safety! Good Luck Frank.

Yes Bob, it came from an RV place (Boat n RV Warehouse). I put a pic from their catalog up somewhere on these forums and someone thought it was the OEM holder, so I bought it. No big deal, wasn't terribly expensive. Guess I'll try and figure something else out.

Thanks,

Frank

Frank,

Atleast now you have the clamp. Are you set for welding?

Make another strap like the one the tank is sitting on in the picture and install it forward of the existing one. Then weld two pieces of flat metal from the gripping ring to the straps the tank sits on, or bolt them. That will have you steady and away from the camper front.

It looks like whatever you do your going to be fabricating something.

Yeah, it's just a time thing right now Jim. I understand what you're saying, it just takes time to figure it out, fab the stuff, weld, drill holes, etc. And that's if I have the right kind of steel around the shop If I don't, it takes more time.

I was in hopes this would be an easy solution. Obviously I'll have to come up with something, and I will.

Starting cutting nice new 3/4" oak plywood (AB grade) tonight for the bed platform, more to come.

Thanks Bruce, but this post concerned a previous trailer (our tiny little Sunspot), not the current one (T-1550). Current one came all set with two tanks, no problems.
