Nice job!

As a fellow Seneca owner I wished for a bigger tank from Jayco. We winter camp regularly and a 40,000 BTU furnace can really draw down the stock tank in no time.

Where did you locate yours and can you ballpark the price? Did you install a remote-read gauge too?

I removed the factory tank and cut off the original bolts then installed 2 of 45 inch long??by inch and half square tubing with half inch course threaded rod welded through it and an angle at each mounting point to secure it better than factory. the tank cost 1180.00 and the remote gauge was 135.00 plus taxes they should be cheaper in the states(no exchange rate and shipping) The new tank has 16 inch diameter and 42 inches in length and fits great the tank is secured by 4 vertical 1/2 inch course rods and nuts and 4 horizontal 3/8 bolts and nuts ,took two days on my driveway and some welding .The tank is a certified road tank

Great Job, it looks like the factory designed the spot for that tank.
