What's missing from my propane holder?

The attached picture is from my propane tank holder. Sorry for the sideways angle, the mobile app kept flipping it.

I need to replace the regulator (not pictured) since both the hose is cracked, and it was the old plug type. The old regulator just flopped around, it wasn't mounted.

I've purchase a new auto switch over dual tank regulator. Now I'm trying to figure out how to mount it. The tank holder I have is welded to the frame, so I can't remove it easily.

I've seen some pictures online of new tank mounts, and they have a little metal bracket that goes over the threaded rod, and the regulator gets mounted to that. Anyone know what that is called, or where I could find one?

The is off a 95 jayco 1207.

Looks like the tank holder is sitting at the bottom of the rod. You should be able to just lift it up the rod and then hook the little notches over the edges of the tanks and you're good to go.

If you have a local propane dealer they may be able to help you get the bracket to hold the regulator. I would wait till I got the new regulator in hand so you can have it to match the mounting bolts.

As someone else said, the tank holder is at the bottom of the threaded rod. My regulator slips down over the threaded rod and rests on top of the tank holder. I don't remember if the bracket on my regulator is permanently mounted to the regulator, or if is removable. The large wingnut then screws down to hold the whole mess down. I would think any rv dealer would have exactly what you are looking for even if you call it a thingamabob, they should figure it out with a description.

Ok!

Between jenoble99 and nroty1, I think I've got this figured out.

The regulator came mounted a bar that has a hole on it. (Almost like norty1's, but without the bottom part hole).

I just need to figure out how to get the wingnut off. I tried unscrewing it, but it bound up. Probably needs some PB-Blaster to work it loose.

Norty1, how long are the pigtails you have? I need to order new hoses.

You need to orient the regulator vents to protect them from dirt and moisture....hope this helps

Thanks, I did check the orientation of the regulator when I bought it, but was unaware that both stages had vents.

You and I are on the same project this week. My camper didn't have the mount and the tanks and cover were zip tied on. Didn't notice when I bought it, until it was time to fill the tank. If you can't find the bracket, my local dealer has stacks of them new, I can't imagine they were very expensive. I paid $39 for the whole setup with the tank mount, rod, wingnut, and bracket you need.
