New Mod On My Jefferson

I decided to remove the 2 propane tanks on the curb side of the trailer and install my tool box on Glide rails and replumbed the propane line to the street side.
As i havent used more than 1 gal of propane per week. So adding larger propane bottles. I shouldnt need propane for 3 months

Most are on the street side, aren't they? At least in 5th wheels I thought. I could be wrong. Nonetheless, nice Mod, looks really neat.

Travel well,
Jim

TDG,
Very nice idea but wondered if weight was considered as an issue here?
I know these boxes can get pretty heavy.

My propane is also in the same location as yours so I thinks that's pretty common.

Very creative. Thx.

Lloyd,
Really ugly, cold and rainy day so I went down to my dealers to look at my 5th wheel. My LP tanks are on the street side, and he said he though most others were too. I'm sure they change things all the time but I do remember looking at the last RV show I went to and they were street side on the Redwoods and a couple of the higher end brands.

BTW pretty hard to get around my unit, still buried in quite a bit of snow. It'll be a few weeks before I can get to it. They are calling for 50's and even one day in the 60's here. Strange spring indeed.

Travel well,
Jim

Thanks Jim.
The last two 5th wheels we've own have been curbside. I guess this is a perfect example of "assuming"

We still would like to use the larger tanks. Had them on the last 5er and miss them.
