Propane tank question.

I have a 2010 EXP-17C Hybrid. How should the LP tank be secured? After a recent trip, it was laying on its side when I got home. Never had an issue like this before. I slightly remember having threaded rods that was bent over at the top that went into the handles of the tank? But not sure if that was for my old pop-up.

Thanks..

Every trailed I have had has a threaded rod that tightens down. A piece is inserted into the handle of the tank and you tighten it down.

From the factory you probably have one or two nuts and bolts between the frame and base of the tank which is pretty unsubstantial. You can get the long bolt to handle type for a single tank on Amazon or at a local RV parts store.
Our first upgrade on our old pup was to dual tanks, and that required a more substantial tank rack that held two tanks securely.
Do a quick search on here; there was a thread on this within the last two weeks with several pictures of various solutions.

2X on the bolts thru the base of the tank, that's is how my 2008 X17C is mounted, they are tuff to get to. If you do put new bolts in I suggest Stainless and be sure to put lock washers on.

That's what I thought I had. I must have taken them off for winter storage so they wouldn't get stolen, now they seem to be misplaced....
Thanks

My brother's PU, has the same setup. The bolts are a PIA, to install and remove, but there is nothing special about the bolts.

You can buy those bolts just about anywhere. Even WalMart has them.

Thank you to all that replied to my question. I guess I am not "losing it". My hybrid just has the bolt at the bottom of the tank into the mounting plate. No threaded rod. That must have been on my pop up.
