The battery in front setup is a bit of a pain. On my X213 the battery frame is part of the spare tire holder.
Our unit came with a single 30lb tank, so the WD bars were no problem until I changed to 2 30lb tanks. Could still make it work with a bit of shifting stuff around.
When I added a second battery I decided to put the tanks in front so that there would be enough space for the second battery. I had to cut up the old battery frame to keep the spare tire holder and make a new battery tray. But the WD fits perfectly now.

X17Z Weight Distribution

I have a 2014 x17z and I have the Husky weight distribution system. It fits just fine and works really well. The tanks are close and I have to take off the plastic cover, but it's off anyway as I store the plug under it.

My Equalizer hitch works fine too on my 2014 x17z. The plates that bolt to the frame are just under the propane tank cover. I am glad I took the advice of others and bought it. Towing never felt better.

I have a 2015 x17z and have a EAZ-Lift round bar on mine that campingworld installed when I bought it. They had to shorten the bolts that hold it to the frame because it was smashing my side wall of the spare tire. I have to lift the propane cover on each side to hook up or you could just lift cove off then put it back on. It will fit and you don't need to move anything!

I also have to lift the cover on the tanks so I can close the snap up brackets The solution for that is either remove the cover completely or to cut out the area in the cover so I can close the brackets

Take a look at equalizer. Doesnt have the big snap up brackets propane might not be in the way. Check out you tube or e-trailer.com for install videos and pictures.

just got my camper out of storage and took another pic of the propane area with the cover off. Looks to me like there should be sufficient room, like you guys said. Why in the world would that shop tell me they can't install it?

Thanks for all your help on this. I will go back to the shop and ask them to look again.

what is the difference between equal-i-zer sway control hitch and eaz-lift weight distribution hitch? same purpose only different names? just thrown off by the sway vs wd

The cover is flexible enough, I just push it out of the way when inserting or removing the safety clips.
