Anyone know if they use EVAP?
Do they still use gas or have all the new units moved to LP?

Thanks
I can look at mine. It's sitting in the garage.

PlayersZ28-Can you estimate the extra weight of that tank? Iíve never used mine, still on board taking up space. Thinking of removing it and storing it for if we ever sell the rig.

Oh WOW you weren't kidding when you said it was in the garage, I was thinking in the camper in the garage. LOL would you mind sharing some dimensions?
I found the company and have actually spoken to them before but their shipping dept is setup for full pallets of product VS single customer. I might just have to have something built locally.

Again thank you for the info, very valuable.

Seems about 35# just by picking it up. It's 24"x24"x10" in dims. I don't have a genny onboard so no point in carrying a fuel tank. I put a pc of wood in the spot to make a storage spot.

Where do you have the exhaust routed? Do you go under any LP lines?

Hi Guys,,, Gals
First post,
I am looking at moving my propane tanks into the area where the gas tank location is. I do have the onan 5500 installed but would like to gain access to the cabinet area above the Generator through the side door to have more storage for longer items. Does anyone see a problem with this? will the cross members beefy enough to hold 2 30# tanks or should it be beefed up? I am going to take the existing tank holder and mount on top of the cross members.

Photos of your idea would be great. As i'm not sure I fully grasp the goals.

But the biggest issue I see is your propane storage area is open on the bottom to let fumes escape, incase of a leak and the generator space is the same way also with venting out the front for heat control LP tanks can be mounted in lots of places on the underside of a trailer and a forklift type would even open up horizontal option. Also these cross members what are they attached to? this might be more important question, also which ones are you referring too.

I hope this helps understand what I am trying to do. The area I want to access is currently blocked by the tanks.
sorry for the side ways pics

Depends on the model and floor plan. My 2017 Eagle 293RKDS came with (2) 40 lb tanks vs (2) 30 lb tanks with gen prep.

I bought the trailer used to full time, lucky we are still in the house at the moment. It only came with 2 30's in the unit. The Genny was added from dealer by previous owner.

So first thing that comes to mind is the area next to the generator is more horizontal then the current Vertical setup. LP tanks are designed to be vertical or horizontal when providing a vapor "vapor is what you need" So if you change orientation you need a new tank, assuming you hook it up to the RV. If your just hauling it won't matter.

Are you planning on cutting up the metal above where the old gas tank was?

I think you could put an LP tank just about anywhere, as long as the bottom isn't sealed up and can be filled without issues.

Do you have the old tank?
your generator is LP correct?

In the current LP tank storage area, could you lower the bottom of the tanks enough to allow you the access you want? seems like the supports for the tanks is on top of the frame if you could weld it lower and or extend down a few inches below the frame I bet that could work.

I have looked at the horizontal tanks and would get them if I can not get the vertical tanks in safely. Yes I plan to take out the shelf to get more access to stand the tanks up in the proposed area. The Genny is a propane unit. All the measurements seem to be good to go and will start this project once it gets warmer up in. northern Michigan. Will keep updated on a separate post Thanks for opinions

I had looked at that a d the dimensions of the tank are 1/4" to big, they will not go any lower.Moving them over next to the Genny gives me plenty of room. I will beef up the angle iron cross members to hold the extra weight, though if it held the gas tank it should be fine

Well today, I finally got around to removing the unused 13g gen prep gas tank. I weighed it and was 53 lbs! Taped up the holes. Nice to have a little extra storage space! I may add a shelf in there later.

Yours is different to the setup I had. My tank dropped through the bottom of the spot and had a shelf spot welded in above it which I removed when I put a floor in place of the tank.
