In any case, I just ordered the kit from Amazon to convert to two tanks.
A guy on YouTube shows attaching the support plate to the frame by drilling into the frame. I guess I'm paranoid about drilling extra holes in the frame, especially on the tongue. I'll probably use square u-bolts as LH suggested.
I had the same thought. It was hard to justify possibly introducing rust or weakening the frame for a propane mount. Realistically it'd probably hold up just fine but it makes me feel better.
I did some tight backing the other day and the tanks were about 6"s away. If jackknife did occur the bumper would contact the plate first. Im guessing If the tank was hit the middle post would bend and the tanks would possibly be ejected.
I know a guy with a single 40lb tank he has mounted in a bracket he bought on eBay. Very secure setup
