Some improvement since I don't have to have tools now, but still not my final fix.
Some people have just used ratchet straps. I may go this route.
Just run them through the hand holes of the tank and around the bottom bracket.
Should be much easier to release the tension and remove the tank.
The only other thing I thought was to install the double bracket which is not an option for you.
I think you just won best kludge of the day, thanks.
I'm going to use that tonight. I put the bottle back after filling it, but the two bolt thing is just awful. The tank rocks back and forth, and I really wonder if it is getting banged around during transport. The problem is that the bolts, when tightened, actually lift the tank a bit and allow it to rock. Your ratchet strap idea will fix that.
I don't know who did this mount, Jayco or the dealer, but it is just stupid and dangerous.
