is your bottle bracket mounted directly to the frame. On my 2004 25E the battery is behind the jack and the bottle bracket is behind the battery BUT my bottle rack is elevated off the frame by what I believe were factory mounting brackets.

Can you get a picture of the bottle rack with the cover removed Yours looks like my set up


The other thing I notice is the ball mount for the sway control The 6 bolt bracket may need to be change to the 4 bolt bracket I was unable to use the 6 bolt bracket for if I did I wouldn't have been able to use the snap-up bracket

If needed I would gladly get a pic of my setup.
I also notice in your pics that you don't have a WD ball mount

hi
sorry just dropped off the camper and won't be able to take additional pics for another day or two.
The bottle bracket is directly mounted on the tongue. not elevated.

as you can see a little in the pics, the back of my tahoe sinks down a little with camper attached. and that is an empty camper and empty car! so i guess one of the reasons they suggested airbags is to lift the back of the car to level....

JOF member "Tacoma" just installed a WDH on his X17Z, you may want to jump over to his thread and send him a PM for the exact Brand and Model number he purchased and installed......., he didn't mention any problems.

your bottle bracket appears to be elevated from what I see it the pics and the area between the front of the bracket to the rear of the bracket is where snap-up brackets would mount

Not sure which system you have or what is in the way of the tanks, but on my older Reese system the tank tray was in the way of the Ubolts that hold the cam arms. Solution was to raise up the tanks with washers as spacers and use longer bolts for the propane tank tray so the ubolts would fit under the tank pan.
