I'm going to try to find some threaded rod and a barrel nut to extend the length of those rods that fit the 20lb tank to make it fit a 30lb tank. It's a much better system if I can make it work. I put the 30lb tank on using the nut & bolt in the bottom ring. It took lots of swearing and I don't look forward to refill time!

Thanks for the pictures "go wild", I'm going to be doing that this weekend hopefully. I also found matching threaded rod and a couple barrel nuts to extend the 20lb tank mounting brackets to fit the 30lb tank. This way I don't have to struggle with that nut & bolt in the bottom ring. Got everything I need for $5 at Home Depot to modify the tank brackets.

I got rid of the 30 lbs lp tank and converted to 2 20 lbs tanks on my 17c. I like to know where I am with propane at all times. I cannot tell you how many times I ran out of LP running on 1 30 lbs tank. Front stabiizers are a must. I moved the 2 factory stabilizers to the front and bought aftermarket stabilizers and added them to the rear. What a difference!
