NorthPoint - extra propane storage compartment ideas

Hi all, getting the bugs shaken out of our new 310RLTS, loving it so far. All minor stuff: Equalizer system lost it's mind and needed orientation set again, battery died on one of the remote BMPro keypads, antenna was miswired above the TV. Usual punch list stuff unfortunately, my dealer PDI left a lot to be desired. Lesson learned.

Looking for any ideas, etc. that others have come up with to utilize the storage compartment for the extra propane tank that I will never add.

Thanks!

We had the dealer run water lines from the bay to the water softener (which we put in the compartment) and back to the bay. It is the OnTheGo unit. Keeps us from constantly moving it when setting up and breaking down.

I use it to store my Direct TV portable dish and tripod I made a wooden floor for the compartment so nothing falls through. Works great for me. I usually use a Carryout portable satellite dish, but there are times I want the tripod setup, so I always have it with me.

I have taken the measurements of the compartment and plan to put a wooden floor in it. I'm planning to make a box shelf with dow rods to keep things in place and attach it to the support brackets that the propane tank bracket is attached to. I figure I can keep cans of bug spray, slide lube, etc in the box shelf. I put a barrel lock on the door so it is fairly secure.

It would be great to see other ideas folks have found for this space.

Thinking of building a small cabinet to store all my tools that I use to make it easy to get to them.

I used sheet aluminum to put in a floor and added some can shelving for aerosols It’s my tool closet.

Off the top of my head, mine houses our fire extinguisher, kids bike helmets, role of eternabond tape, disk brake pump, citronella fluid...and a bunch of random stuff. It's kind of a catch all for me!

I placed my 5 gallon water bottle for the drinking system in there. I had to extend the water line a little bit, but I had the pieces parts hanging around, just some 1/4" ice maker tubing and a splice connector.

I simply placed a plastic 5 gal bucket in it with all my cleaning, wax, etc. supplies with some rags. The bucket sits nice on the existing ledge.

I removed the holding strap for use later if needed.

does the 5 gallon jug fit well where the propane tank would sit or did you have to modify the floor?

If you're asking about the 5 gallon water jug, it fits right in with no modification.

We keep our dog food in there, in a five gallon bucket.

Mine has a regulator attached to the propane bottle. Once the bottle is out, what did you do with the regulator? Is it attached to anything at the other end?

Have 3 40 lb propane

Great ideas on the extra compartment. Was thinking of taking the single one out. Just bought the 2021 north point 310rlts. Iím slowly beginning to figure out the Jay command system. Confused though on a screen that says Fuel and Battery. On right side of screen it says propane/add. Asks for bottle size/then press pair/hold SYNC button on sensor. I did but unable to pair. Any suggestions? Iím not computer savvy. Also, is there a gauge showing amount of propane left? Thank you for all the help!😁

Did you purchase an additional BMPro sensor for the third propane bottle? I have tried but they have been back ordered. Have had no issue pairing my first two sensors prior to attaching to bottom of tanks.

I made a floor out of plywood and cut it to shape of the inside. Put some carpet on it to keep things from sliding all over and I use mine for holding my 2x12 pads for the foot pads of the leveling jacks, a couple of 6x6 blocks, and a pair of 2x6 pads to run one side of tires up on for some added leveling if needed. I was going to also install my hydraulic brake pump in there, which a lot of people do when they convert their brake system, but I put mine inside the basement behind the back wall so it's a little closer to the axles.

Hi MattS! I don’t know anything about those sensors. Are they on tanks already? Nothing was even mentioned about sensors when we did demo. I’m really at a loss for pairing the RVMaster App and the the app for the levelers. Where we are we have little or no WiFi. I’m gonna have to you tube the set ups.
